Before you start questioning yourself, yes, you did read the title correctly. Back in the late 1980’s Sony and Nintendo collaborated on a console together. This was an unknown secret until 2013, when rumours started to surface.
More recently, Engadget, managed to sit down with an owner of this super rare console which is known only as “The Superdisc”- They even managed to get a video of the prototype. Feast your eyes on the most unlikely collaboration console in gaming history:
The device has dual functionality on the format front. Being able to load form both cartridges and discs. This would have been a revolutionary concept back in the late 80’s. When the rumours of The Superdisc’s existence started to surface in 2013, many people were extremely skeptical that it was real at all. People were either assuming that a photoshop job had occurred or that someone had used their electronics degree to knock together a fake prototype.
Sonys PlayStation’s head of Worldwide Studios Shuhei Yoshida wouldn’t confirm if the pictures that had been floating around on the internet were fakes or not. However, he did confirm that when he joined the company there was “a system called ‘Play Station’ that had both Super Nintendo cartridge support and some disc game support.” What more confirmation do you need?
