You probably heard that earlier today a Reddit user revealed that he had in his possession an incredibly rare Nintendo PlayStation. There were obviously quite a few skeptics out there, but the Reddit user who owns the console uploaded some footage of the device which is no doubt worth an absolute fortune, if it is the real deal. The machine doesn’t have any cables so it hasn’t been hooked up to a television set, so we’ve got no idea what the actual bootup is like. Anyway, if you are at all interested be sure to check out the video for a glimpse of this rarity.
You most probably know that both Sony and Nintendo were planning to work with each other on something you may know as the PlayStation. The idea was scrapped by Nintendo, but a user on Reddit claims to have gotten his hands on the mystical device which played both CD’s and SNES games. We can’t verify its legitimacy, but the prototype certainly should prove to ensure some interesting discussion around the web.
“My dad worked for a company, apparently one of the guys he used to work with, I think his name was Olaf, used to work at Nintendo and when my dads [sic] company went bankrupt, my dad found it in a box of “junk” he was supposed to throw out.
“I have not had a chance to boot her up, I don’t have a power cable at the moment, but it seems like it’s a pretty common DC cable. I’ll have to get one and see how it goes.”
Whatever way you look at it both Xbox and PlayStation won this year’s E3 event judging from social media, news reports, and various message boards. However, Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime wanted to take a little pop at PlayStation in an interview with Kotaku. Specifically he took a little dig at The Last Guardian which was clearly shown too early when it was first showcased in 2009.
“The best way to launch a game like that is to surprise and delight [fans], to give them a launch date, in an environment like this let them play it versus what other companies do which is to announce a project that you may not see for five, six years,” he hissed. “It’s just not the way we do things.”
Yacht Club Games has announced today during the PlayStation Experience that Shovel Knight will no longer be exclusive to Nintendo platforms and PC.

EA Sports head Peter Moore has tweeted an image of an article in today’s LA Times that reads, “Nintendo’s White PlayStation 4 Debuts”. Clearly someone at the LA Times isn’t too clued up on the company that created PlayStation 4, but it certainly wasn’t Nintendo.
Joshua Mosqueira, Diablo 3 lead designer, has revealed that the game could come to other platforms. Diablo 3 was announced at the Sony conference as coming to the PlayStation 3 and the PlayStation 4.

“We don’t have any announcements to make at this time. But we’re not necessarily a Sony exclusive.”
