How Sony became a player in the gaming world

When I was a kid, and it was Sega vs Nintendo, Sega debuted the Sega CD add-on.

Naturally, I wanted my Nintendo to have a CD add-on as well. So I called Nintendo customer service, and in my little kid voice I asked them if a CD add-on was coming. The lady told me ‘Oh yes! It’s definitely on its way!’

Then in some issue of Nintendo Power magazine they said the CD add-on was being developed with Sony.

After many months of waiting, it seemed like the CD add-on had become vaporware, and I was so upset at that b*tch, and Nintendo Power, for lying to me 🤣.

Aaaand then the PS 1 ‘magically’ appeared.

So if you’re a real PS fan, thank Nintendo.
