Yes, this has been flooding my Twitter feed all day! Pretty cool, hopefully he can find a compatible power adapter and test it out.

Yeah amazing find, btw its a PlayStation not a snes! Of course it can play snes games, but its Sony console that would have also played titles not released on the snes cd drive, multimedia stuff ala cdtv being mooted.

Cant wait to see it boot if or when he gets it going and anything loads!

So do any CD games actually exist? And is there any hardware beyond the CD drive added like extra RAM or custom Sony chips?

Wow! Quality! So this is the Playstation prototype right?

I love it when stuff like this appears. This is quite an icon of modern history and has a great story attached to it.
I see its turned that lovely shade of shitty brown too...

Well some devs have stated games were quite far in production i.e ports 7th Guest etc of course if any data is still around is another question, this guy said a cartridge and cd came with it, so until he gets it going who knows whats on them.

Im not 100% on the seperate Sony PlayStation combo specs, but if its the same as the Sony snes cd drive it wouldnt have had extra chips, the latter Philips deal would have included a 32-bit risc cpu and more ram.

Looks legit, I want to see if it powers up. Strange that no dev units are floating around from this time too, but the end of the Sony/Nintendo deal would of probably assigned most the the development to the bin.

I expect it will be on eBay soon, It's best destination would be a gaming museum.

I am a little suspicious of this TBH, I like it don't get me wrong, I like it- but with the techniques that hobby bodgers can adopt with 3D printing etc I am left a little unconvinced.  :39:

I wonder how long it will take to find out if it's real or fake.
