Engadget has published an extensive article about the Nintendo Playstation, which first appeared back in July. A lot of people were skeptical about the Frankenstein machine equipped with CD-ROM and SNES cartridge slot. Could it be real? Well, it is!
“The “Nintendo PlayStation” is now the stuff of gaming legend, with reportedly only about 200 prototypes ever produced. But, as luck would have it, one of those systems fell into the hands of a father and son: Terry and Dan Diebold. We met up with the Diebolds in Hong Kong, where they were in town for a retro gaming expo, to hear how it ended up in their possession. Most importantly, we got to turn the “Nintendo PlayStation” on, play a couple of SNES games on it, and even take it apart to see if we could fix the dormant CD drive.”
The article even includes expert opinions, x-ray of the machine and a lot of investigative CSI stuff to prove the machine really exists. Pretty cool reading.
