    edit:
    Didn't you read the article, it plays SNES cartridges and SNES cds and makes toast.

    I feel like you edited or I misread. Oh well. Unimportant, really.

    Looks like a nice piece. I would not mind pulling one apart to see what makes it tick. Also 7.6V.... ah the 90's.

    I do not know about you but my kitchen has nice lighting and a table I can get shots from all sorts of angles on.

    Speaking of pictures the source has higher res versions if you click on the images.

    A neat little piece of gaming history, though I can't imagine wanting one. The disc player would be all but useless, as I doubt there are any prototype games for it, beyond the disc with it (assuming the disc is a game). I hope that thing is taken apart, studied, then shipped off to a museum or something. Bit of a shame most things like that were simply thrown away.

    It should be donated to a video game museum!

    yeah he made a video showing it off, the front plastic is separate, which would explain that being the only yellowed section

    yeah i doubt it, it will more than likely end up in some douches private collection never to be seen again:(

    fingers crossed it does manage to end up in a museum though, if ever there was anything that belongs in a video game museum its that

    I thought it was "Play Station" when it was being developed jointly, then it become "PlayStation" when sony did their own thing.

    yes, that's what it was. I guess they just removed the space, but there's still an upper case S at Station.

    The guy on the video seems clueless and don't even understand what it is.

    Wow that video had some of the shittiest camera work I have ever seen, and it looks like he is going to drop it multiple times throughout the entire process. Call Ben Heck (only person I could think of off the top of my head) to check it out and confirm it's safe, then plug it in and videotape the results. Rip the EEPROM from the cartridge and call it a day. Oh yeah, then sell the whole thing via eBay or Christie's and walk away a much richer guy.
    The guy that has it is clueless, as others have said, let the professionals take over and pay you handsomely for the relic you uncovered.

    That guy gives me the impression that he won't take good care of that SNES-PS.

    Thanks for the link to AssemblerGames. In regards to him handling it, watch the video again and tell me you'd trust this guy with a glass of water, much less this.
