Rare Nintendo PlayStation prototype to be auctioned in February

Although the partnership did not go well as planned, Nintendo Play Station was still created with its original prototype, which will soon be up for grabs in February with the help of Heritage Auctions. However, the partnership between Nintendo and Sony did not go well after said 'disputes' immerged in the said project.

In a nutshell: The big three console makers-Microsoft, Sony, and Nintendo-are rivals, but there was a time in the late 80s when the two Japanese firms came together to create a SNES with a CD-ROM drive called the Nintendo Play Station. Diebold says he already turned down a $1.2 million offer from a person in Norway, so expect the final selling price to be very, very high. Kotaku explains more about the Heritage auction house holding the auction for the rare Nintendo Play Station.

Basically, the Mona Lisa of video game technology has seen the world as its legend was amplified at conventions.

When Mr Olaffson left Advanta he left the prototype behind, and it was later acquired by former Advatna employee Terry Diebold when the corporate went bankrupt.

Though it might have been impossible to know it at the time, Nintendo's falling out with Sony is among the events to happen to the video game medium.

Until now. Diebold, not knowing what the hybrid console is worth has made a decision to let the market decide what it's worth by auctioning it off on Heritage Auctions. On every day foundation out that we... like all in favour of it has label us cash out of pocket'. That auction will kick off on February 27, with the bidding expected to be fast and possibly furious as the console has no reserve price listed because it's a first for the company. After stating his wish to sell in October, Kotaku reported today that Diebold would sell through Heritage Auctions, the reason being that touring with the antique costs too much.

Although Diebold made known to the world that the last remaining "Nintendo Play Station" is still alive and works, the expenses from his tours made him full of debts, which forces him now to sell the said device in an auction.

Even that's chump changed when in contrast with out a topic the Nintendo PlayStation is going to head for though, which will seemingly cessation up essentially the most expensive single share of gaming hardware ever.

'In the case of this particular item, since it's never been sold at public auction before, there's really no way to tell'. Check out Heckendorn's video of the newly working console below.
