thought people should know this.

So that is why all the third party support went from SNES to PSX instead of SNES to N64.

Makes sense.

The Playstation was born out of a failed business deal between Sony and Nintendo to add a CD device to their console. Nintendo decided to not add-on an optical drive to SNES, and to go with game carts for the N64 as well. Sony didn't want to waste their development efforts and money, so they used the optical drive they had designed and instead built their own game console.

yeah , I know, but I'm just talking about before that, in the 80's



Sony also used to make tape recorders.

If that's all the games they made back then, no wonder their first part was so weak in the PS1/PS2 days.

I LOVE ICELAND!

And Nintendo developed their home console games for Coleco before the NES days. BAM! (originally, they went multi-plat after that)

Actually sony was a hardware company , the title is a complete fabrication Sony never was a software only company .

Sony image soft wasn't formed till  1989 and was mixed in with CBS who later changed there name to Sony Music .

In respect to gaming, you mean

Sony Corp was never a software only company. Very far from it.

Barmy title.

I'm not really here!
