Atari could have had the Nintendo Entertainment System? That is monumentally stupid! Now, instead of being one of the big and iconic hardware companies, they're just a renamed Infogrames publisher. Dumb

Oh it gets better than that, Nintendo almost had the PS1 effectively.

I can't remember the story exactly but i think they asked Sony to create the CD unit they had planned for the SNES. Nintendo dropped it, the technology went towards creatng the PS1.

Bah I can't remember it exactly but its along those lines :D

Sony wanted all the royalties to the CD games. Nintendo made the right decision.

"Sony wanted all the royalties to the CD games. Nintendo made the right decision."

It's not like Nintendo received much money from selling N64's and GCN's anyways, lulz

Yeah, the right choice for Sony

Everyone makes mistakes, but those are some record-breaking boners.

what? All the DC games could have been on Xbox? Freaking greedy MS.

Wow, I didn't know Xbox could of had full backward compatibility with Dreamcast games, that would have been great.

Also imagine if Nintendo and Sony teamed up back in the days..Now look what happen, they went on to make the biggest contender to this day know as the Playstation brand.

Original Playstation annilated N64 to a absurd doom. Even though N64 had some great games.

How does having less titles make them greedy?

The entire world of gaming would have been different if just one or two of those choices made were different. Love the Atari Entertainment System btw.
