Remember when Nintendo backed out of a deal with Sony that included a CD addon attachment and eventually went with Philips, whose CD-i machine left many wondering how crazy Nintendo had to be? Yeah, well, that's not exactly how things went down here. Sony, tables turned, refused and offer to make a deal with Microsoft, which prompted the latter to create the Xbox. Interestingly enough, if history had been different, the PlayStation could have been prevented if Nintendo has just stuck with the Sony deal for the CD attachment, and thus the Microsoft deal could have been handled by Nintendo, and then we would truly only have one gaming console on the market. How the tides turn. Be sure to watch the video above because it's fairly educational on how things went down.
