2) That is false narrative.  Both sides tried to screw each other in SNES CD deal.  Sony tried to get rights of all Nintendo IPs that were released on console.  Of course Nintendo would back out of deal if it meant losing rights to IPs.  Don't try to rewrite history.  

Not trying to rewrite history, that's genuinely the first time I've ever heard of it. Do you have like a StrafeFox video, article or anything so I can read up on it. Thanks :)

It was mainly over royalties Sony would get all that were produced on the CD format and Nintendo would only get money from hardware sales.   While they eventually renegotiated the deal it eventually fell apart.   Basically both sides were at fault.  There are some articles that simple portray Sony as victim but here are a few articles that go more in depth on what was happening on both sides of the deal.

So even I will admit that I was wrong considering Sony under original agreement wouldn't steal Nintendo IPs but basically Sony would get all the licensing fees for the Super Disc.  I would put the blame more on Nintendo for deal falling through but Sony wasn't innocent either.
