You may recall Ben Heck's Nintendo PlayStation Teardown and repairs to the very rare Nintendo PlayStation (SNES-CD) Prototype. Now the hardware genius is back at the Retro Gaming Expo in Portland Oregon meeting again the Nintendo PlayStation and attempting to repair the disc drive with hopes to play the homebrew game "Super Boss Gaiden" for the SNES-CD platform . The SNES-CD is a symbol of Nintendo's and Sony's failed partnership back in the early 90's with a product even though never released to the public changed the course of gaming history.
We seen several things released by krHACKen for the PS2 community the past several days ago in ID DUMPER & SCEDoormat_NoME Rel.3 Source Code Release , but the developer also has another release useful for the PlayStation 1 Community. TRAXTRACT a GS/PAR Enhancement CD Track Ripper which extracts various elements from a unique file system used in GameShark & Action Replay CDs .
Last week we showed you a bit of news about the rare Nintendo Sony PlayStation (SNES-CD ), as we seen developer's released a a very nice working homebrew game for the system and have a working emulator, but also we told you about a recent Teardown & Repair that Ben Heck was in the process of doing on the Ben Heck Show. At the time there was just the first of the two part edpisode but recently Ben Heck dives into the repair process of the prototype console that is EXTREMELY rare and is a true symbol of gaming history. As this was the launch that really brought Sony to the forefront of the gaming market as we all know the Nintendo and Sony relationship went Sour and the CD add-on for the SNES was a distant dream, but Sony's work as we know it as today did not go to waste
By now most in the community know the history of the Nintendo PlayStation (the prototype CD Add-on for the SNES) and how the relationship went sour between Sony and Nintendo and thus lead to Sony going on their own and creating the iconic Sony PlayStation we now know as today . This week there has been several unrelated pieces of news for the Nintendo PlayStation (kind of a big deal as we do not hear much about this system due to its rarity and the fact it was never in production. If it had it might of changed gaming history as we know it today. Would there be a Sony PlayStation 4 now, or would it of been the Nintendo PlayStation 4. What kind of handheld would we of seen if the two stayed together or would they bound to split at some point?
