I Probably Would Have Been Interested in a PSP ‘Elder Scrolls” Game…

Almost ten years ago, Bethesda was planning a PSP edition of Elder Scrolls IV , and it was going to be part of the “Travels” series. However, it simply wasn’t meant to be and was cancelled. Yesterday, new footage — which was swiftly taken down by Bethesda — and information arrived to explain what this game was going to be about (and this Reddit post should explain how the build was allegedly secured).

Sony FINALLY Releases Their 1970’s Console Prototype

Sony Never Released This 1970s Console Prototype

Many of us know (and believe) that the first video game console Sony made was the PlayStation. However, he truth is that the PlayStation was actually Sony’s first console that they released. It turns out that before the PlayStation (even before their ill-fated collaboration with Nintendo) was, this lovely piece of gaming tech. This console,simply labeled as “Prototype TV Game Machine”) used — or WOULD HAVE used — cards and cartridges, and since this console dates to the 1970’s, the games would have likely been relatively simple. However, if you want a Japanese write-up on the exhibition it was shown at, here you go. Continue reading “Sony FINALLY Releases Their 1970’s Console Prototype”

Here’s A Rare Prototype of the Sony Super Nintendo CD

We gamers and gaming hobbyists know the story: Nintendo partners with Sony to create a CD-ROM add-on to the Super Nintendo, Nintendo gets cold feet about the contract, Sony announces partnership with Nintendo, THEN Nintendo announces partnership with Sony’s rival, Philips, a spurned Sony goes on the create the legendary PlayStation console (arguably the greatest console in modern gaming history), and the Nintendo/Philips arrangement results in NO SNES CD console, 3 terrible Zelda games and an awful Mario game for the Philips CDi console. What’s a CDi, you ask? EXACTLY.  Anyway, just after the partnership termination with Nintendo, Sony went on to produce prototypes of the cancelled ‘Nintendo Play Station’ console that were eventually shelved. Recently, some guy has recently shown-off his newly acquired prototype of that console. Continue reading “Here’s A Rare Prototype of the Sony Super Nintendo CD”

Ahead of Their Time: My 4 Favorite Gadgets That Died Too Soon

Perhaps the greatest tragedy in tech are the heaps of gadgets tossed on the metaphorical funeral pyre too early. Maybe it was poor marketing, an unfounded lack of support, or simply bad timing that did them in, but whatever the case, they died much too soon.  These four pieces of forward-thinking hardware were more a refinement on an already existing platform, and while in some cases bits and pieces of these machines have trickled into other products and services, but all of these gadgets share the fate of extinction. Poor, poor devices….
