1991 (prototype)

PSPROTO

The PlayStation was originally planned as a CD-ROM based peripheral for the Super Nintendo, as well as a hybrid console that would be compatible with SNES cartdriges and titles released for the Super Disc format.
It was 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 its own stand-alone console.

This logo uses the same icon of the Super NES/Super Famicom and it can be seen in the plastic case and in the original controller of the prototype PlayStation console.
