The console's origins date back to 1988 where it was originally a joint project between Nintendo and Sony to create a CD-ROM for the Super Famicom. Although Nintendo denied the existence of the Sony deal as late as March 1991, Sony revealed a Super Famicom with a built-in CD-ROM drive, that incorporated Green Book technology or CD-i, called "Play Station" (also known as SNES-CD) at the Consumer Electronics Show in June 1991. However, a day after the announcement at CES, Nintendo announced that it would be breaking its partnership with Sony, opting to go with Philips instead but using the same technology. The deal was broken by Nintendo after they were unable to come to an agreement on how revenue would be split between the two companies. The breaking of the partnership infuriated Sony President Norio Ohga, who responded by appointing Kutaragi with the responsibility of developing the PlayStation project to rival Nintendo.
So Nintendo ****ed Sony over, creating one of their biggest rivals in the world of video game hardware, all so they could partner with Philips, the jackasses who ended up giving the world this:

The obvious snark would be 'the internet', but if you Google "ascii music notes", or "ascii..." any other number of things, you're gonna get what you're looking for.

Thanks man.
Just ftr, you're about the last person (well, one of the last definitely) with whom I would associate snark, or who I would expect to be snarky.
