In an interview from NintendoLife, Jez San from Argonaut Software revealed that Nintendo and Sony were originally planning on including the Super FX chip in the SNES PlayStation.
The Super FX chip, that was manufactured by Argonaut Software, was previously used to bring 3D visuals to games such as Donkey Kong Country on the SNES.
Check out what he said below:
When we designed the Super FX chip for Nintendo, It was too late to make it into the Japanese version of the SNES. But with the American version, they were contemplating having it built in, which would have made the games cartridges much cheaper, and would have also meant that 3D was a standard in the console. In the end, we missed out on that. But then, initially, Nintendo and Sony were going to do a PlayStation with a CD attached to a SNES, with our chip in it – ours was going to be the 3D chip inside the original PlayStation. Then Sony and Nintendo fell out.
