Super NES CD-ROM System
1991 (unused prototype)
The PlayStation was originally planned as a CD-ROM based peripheral for the Super Nintendo, developed in a partnership between Nintendo and Sony. But when the contract with Nintendo failed, this project was abandoned and later Sony started to produce it's own console.
Several prototype designs were considered before the final logo was chosen.
The 20th logo on the pre-launch design table was chosen.
