Nintendo Playstation for sale (but you won't be able to buy it)

Maybe many of you know the story of how Nintendo and Sony were about to make a joint-venture to develop a console. The agreement couldn't be done and Nintendo developed N64 and Sony created the Playstation... the rest is history.

There's an american guy, Terry Diebold, that owns a prototype that both companies built during the talks, a 'SNES Playstation'. Basically a SNES (a cartridge slot) with a Sony CD Rom reader.

After showing it through several retro-events across the USA, now this guy wants to sell the gadget and it seems a very expensive sale (some millions dollars are estimated).



The CD reader fails but the cartridges work.



A lucky guy, definitely...
