The 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 unsuccessfully a 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.
