If Nintendo and Sony hadn't split then: 1. N64 would have been delayed or maybe wouldn't have existed. 2. The Sony PlayStation wouldn't have existed. 3. The Saturn would have been delayed, allowing the 32X to get more games. Without the PlayStation the Saturn and N64 would probably not have had the same amount of effort put into it. The Saturn had a redesign half way through when the PlayStation specs appeared. It would also have been much more expensive. I don't see much good coming out of Nintendo & Sony sticking together.
