An enclosure like an angular Super Nintendo Entertainment System. "SONY" and "PlayStation" logo are included.
The front side is a power switch and CD tray drive tray of the CD - ROM drive, open / close buttons are aligned, there are two headphone jacks, volume dial, two controllers below. The plastic is discolored for a moment and I feel that it is a period object.
I / O terminal on the back is like this. It shows that the multi-output terminal common to Super Nintendo was a brotherhood existence.
The software stuck in the slot is labeled "92.10.6. Demo". It was said that the management conference Sony decided to advance joint development with Nintendo and decided to advance into the game business by itself was done on June 24, 1992, so it was used for the demonstration in the company after that maybe.
The cassette contains the letters "Nintendo Super Fami Cash Sette".
Although the controller is written as a controller for Super Nintendo, ... ....
On the surface is "SONY" "PlayStation" logo is entered. The logo itself was later officially adopted, a thing different from P and S motif motifs.
A movie that is touching the actual machine on YouTube is also released, as it does not convey that it is genuine only with photos.

Although it is not in focus well in the movie, the same standard as the Super Nintendo, as well as the cassette insertion slot.
The size of the main body is like this, is slightly larger than the Super Nintendo?
There was a slot for expansion on the bottom.
According to Mr. Dnldbld, this is a "prototype" that his father had, probably guessing that his father got from Mr. Olaf, the acquaintance who worked for Nintendo. Unfortunately there is no power cable and it has never been started, so it is unconfirmed what the inside of the cassette is.
For this "Olaf", he served as CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment for six years since its establishment in 1991 and was in charge of developing both software and hardware of PlayStationÓlafur Jóhann ÓlafssonThere is an opinion that it is Mr., but details are unknown.
