In the dawn of the 1990s Nintendo entered partnership with Sony, set to produce a console partnered between these two technology giants. Apparently this partnership wasn't to last, with Nintendo focusing on the N64 and Sony working on its first PlayStation release instead. With a claimed 200 models of this 'Super Disc' produced, it's said that this piece of gaming history was found in an box belonging to an old Nintendo employee.

Brandishing a SNES-style controller, a cartridge and disc slot and line-out through the power of RCA, it seems that this console hasn't seen the light of day in some time. It's also been stated that the owner isn't sure if it even works, completely devoid of a power pack to test it out with.
