From owners and artisans, to become a partner, then the relationship between Sony and Nintendo is increasingly complex when developing into an archenemy.
The lion also grabbed the rabbit.
Sony’s desire in the case of the Nintendo Playstation / SNES PlayStation is simple. They need the experience to dominate the partner’s gaming console market to enter the game. Not that Sony doesn’t want to do it alone, but the previous failures have made the bosses realize that they are just newbies in this field. The dragon without the leader bar is hard to do should be okay. As for Nintendo, will this giant be so foolish as to open it to help an opponent with a terrifying potential like Sony step in to divide the market’s pie? The answer is, of course, not. Besides laughing, these goods said, but behind the scenes, Yamauchi had prepared a screen when he secretly hired Philips, the Dutch electronics corporation, to create a CD drive for SNES. Sony is still ignorant and is happy with the Nintendo Playstation / SNES PlayStation plan to open the door to the gaming market.
The half-hearted relationship began to break up at the CES consumer electronics fair in 1991. At the same time, Sony was delighted to introduce the new, improved CD format and a CD reader concept for SNES the next day. They were hit by an essential partner in the face when they ultimately rejected all previous agreements and announced their cooperation with Philips in the process of exploring the new generation console platform using CDs. Today, many people still think that Philips then spent tons of money for Nintendo to tear the pact with Sony as a tissue paper. But I’m not that simple. Feeling beyond money motives, Yamauchi also wants to “teach” executives at Sony a lesson to see their exact position. According to Nintendo at that time, Sony was like an emerging rich man. They could be the boss in the consumer electronics industry, but stepping into the gaming field was just a newbie.
The slap at CES 1991 was so painful. It hurt so much, the pain came back to life, and it hurt to the point where Sony’s pride was seriously injured. Instead of knowing what people like Nintendo expected, they decided to obey but obey silently as the boss of state *** to wait for the return of both capital and interest. It seems that Yamauchi made a mistake when he expected everything but didn’t expect Sony’s hegemony. Now Sony has collected a lot of it, but it was ancient. But Nintendo was strong at the time, so even though it was hot, Sony still didn’t want to break the deal. They even continued to sign an agreement with Nintendo, agreeing that the SNES PlayStation would yet be completed and marketed, but the profits would go into Nintendo’s pocket more. The deal did not last long when he tried to make it through in 1992 and was canceled entirely when Sony finally accepted that Nintendo never wanted to help them enter the gaming market.
Vo Lam contested: Nintendo Playstation legend – Part 2 When Sony and Nintendo turned, no one regretted them because behind the false friendship is the dark conspiracy that makes people shudder.
At this point, despite deceiving himself, Sony must clearly understand all the long-standing agreements between the two parties are just a move of Nintendo to prevent Sony from participating in the gaming console market. Even the reserve card of Philips was tricked by Nintendo, which led to the Dutch electronics company launching the CDi but entirely ignored by the gaming community. Nintendo may not care about the emotions of the partners it tramples on, but once the anger of pride is broken, it will be unpredictable. For example, as in the Passenger Association, when her husband killed Lady Tieu Thuy, husband, and wife, Tu Tu Thuy left home. Not angry, she also invented Kim O Dao Phap absolute counteract her Snow Son sect. Kim O is the sun. The sun shines brightly when encountering snow (paint). Poking into the opponent’s pride or pride causes severe consequences, not playing.
Military death revenge, any day
Ken Kutaragi may be a funny engineer, but he is also a passionate person. The Sony incident was humiliated, making the engineer feel that he should do something to repay this grudge. Besides, the Nintendo Playstation / SNES PlayStation project leader also said that all the capital investment, the hard-working efforts of Sony engineers should not be dumped into such a pool. Sony should continue to enter the gaming market without the help of Nintendo. Even Ken realized that the most important thing was that the 2D graphics platform with 16-bit CPU limitations had become obsolete. Why doesn’t Sony take advantage of this opportunity to unleash the full potential of the CD by offering 32-bit enhancements with hardware specifically developed to run 3D games in real-time? Sony’s management listened to Ken’s presentation, but he thought it was a waste of time and effort.
Many meetings were held to no avail because in the hearts of the elites at Sony, despite resenting Yamauchi and Nintendo, they did not dare confront this giant monster. Ken Kutaragi decided to use the last move, hitting the itching of the giant corporation directors. That is the power of friendship! Wrong. That is the power that comes from hatred. He clearly stated that creating the PlayStation isn’t just about getting into the lucrative gaming market. It was also aimed at returning the throbbing ear that year Nintendo had slapped Sony in the face at CES. Finally, the pride of the bosses has won. After all, they are a method of shouting out the fire in the consumer electronics industry. Nintendo can be healthy, but spending money to play does not know who is dead to whom. So when the time is right, why not make a big deal for the arrogant crowd at Nintendo to see that it will become a success if it fails.
With the tireless efforts of Ken Kutaragi and his men & women in 1994, the year of the PlayStation did not appear. Sony has calculated the time is too toxic, that year SNES is entering a recession in the last years of life, and the appearance of the PlayStation completely overthrows the awareness of gamers. No more extended flat screens with a bunch of 2D characters, now the gaming world begins to have a real “depth of space”, rather than using the 2D image shading method to create a feeling. The PlayStation hardware was so powerful, and it also benefited from the perfect compatibility with the very hot CD format at the time. Just like the Sky kids are now able to meet and talk to Boss’s, developers and game developers do not complete and meet, ruffled up and dedicate the game to PlayStation, making it a deck. The first console sold more than 100 million units worldwide.
Nintendo began to panic, start to feel scared of the guy who ten years ago even worked as an audio chip hired for himself, humiliated and did not dare to protest. They quickly poured money into the Nintendo 64 project, hoping to become a Sony-made console counterpart. The quality of N64 is better than of the PlayStation but not much better when the quality of one side is 10. The other is about 8.5 ~ 9. But the slower launch when the PlayStation became the norm that N64 could not be considered a failure, but the distance to the so-called brilliant success is a goal that can never be reached. N64 still lives well, still has its customer base because of the reputation and exclusive titles of Nintendo and NSX titles. Still, it is always in the lower projection and never escaped from the extreme terrorism of PlayStation. By 2001, Microsoft had a similar story to the Xbox, but I’m not a fan of this company so that I won’t tell you more here.
That’s the whole story of a gaming console that never had the chance to be born. Still, it was so influential that many people in the gaming market could change many companies’ fate. Some people sometimes copy their mouths if, at that time, Nintendo was less greedy, continued to shake hands with Sony. Today indeed, we will have a completely different game village. I don’t think so, Nintendo was the king of the gaming industry at the time, and they had no reason to value Sony’s feelings, even though the other guy wasn’t an easy joke. It was only they who failed to preserve their throne before the challenger. Now Sony is still mighty, but Microsoft is not a vegetarian either. Also, Nintendo, after years of disorientation, has a strong return with the Switch. Now try to fight, who lives and dies, whoever defeats martial arts, who knows!
