    Broken bones and concussions were standard. Dehydration and malnutrition were also standard. Hypothermia was as well. I don't know which of them would have been the worst ones. There are others, like my uncle trying to kill me, but that isn't really a physical injury, but more of an emotional one.

    Holy shit, dude. I'm sorry you went through that.

    Just in case anyone reading this thread is unaware, the PlayStation started it's life as CD based add-on for the SNES. They even got so far as developing and manufacturing an number of prototypes (that are now VERY expensive collectors items). Nintendo were quite big dicks about it actually because just as Sony were preparing to announce the console and without telling Sony, Nintendo publicly announced thier partnership to produce thier CD add for the SNES... with Philips (I'm not even kidding, that actually happened). Of course, that add-on never happened either and ended up becoming the miserable failure known as the Philips CDi, so yeah, it's safe to say Sony had the last laugh in the end.


    Anyway, back to the topic. It's almost impossible to imagine what gaming would be today if the Nintendo PlayStation came out out as opposed to the Sony PlayStation. I do agree it does seem unlikely that this partnership would have lasted beyond the CD add-on, but it is possible Sony could have kept going and further developed thier own gaming/console technology without Nintendo, but they may have been behind the curve by the time they did. I Find it unlikely that Sony's own console would have been as popular if that CD add-on come through.


    So in the end, I have offer thanks to Nintendo for being such ass holes.

    You make it sound like Nintendo ditched Sony for no reason.

    Sony was going to make most of the money from the add-on. The deal was HEAVILY in Sony's favor.

    And Sony would have entered the console race with or without Nintendo. Part of the deal was that Sony would make a standalone console.

    I don't think the SNES CD add-on would have even been successful, seeing how badly the Sega CD did.
