The Nintendo PlayStation You Never Got To Play

The first PlayStation 1 controllers looked silly. No wonder the world never got to use them.


The world also never got to use this first PlayStation from 1991. A Sony produced SNES, it was the fruit of what was an unsuccessful failed Nintendo partnership.

The other prototypes were Sony's own original PlayStation designs for hardware it planned to release. Note the "PowerStation" concept art.

Sony finally released the PlayStation 1 in late 1994 in Japan. A worldwide release followed in 1995.
