The ‘Nintendo Play Station’ is working, thanks to Ben Heck

When Terry Diebold found the one-of-a-kind “Nintendo Play Station” in 2015 — this is the prototype console that Sony and Nintendo were collaborating on before famously parting ways in the early 1990s — it only played Super Nintendo cartridges . The CD-ROM drive, the prototype’s distinguishing feature, didn’t work. Well, thanks to master modder/hacker Ben Heckendorn, that has been fixed.

Nintendo Hopes You’ll Love the Switch So Much, You’ll Buy More Than One

Back in the 1960s, Alka-Seltzer found an incredible way to double its sales volume. It involved no new products, no dramatic advertising campaigns, and no celebrity spokespeople or clever jingle.
