Didn’t the original PlayStation start as a platform for Nintendo but then became the first Sony platform since Nintendo rejected it?
I do suppose it explains part of the degree of the fighting…

the playstation is actually a by-product of nintendo i think. It was originally the NintendoPlay. A console that had both disk AND cartridges. (like an old vhs/dvd player).
