Relationships between the two soon collapsed, and Sony used the Super Disc technology as the basis for its own 'PlayStation', then still a combined CD/SNES cartridge–playing system.
200 were manufactured, but the machine was quickly scrapped and Sony's PlayStation R&D team (headed by one Ken Kutaragi) went back to the drawing board. The rest, as they say, is history.... DID YOU KNOW? The font used for the PLAYSTATION 3 logo is, as many have speculated, the same as that used for the Spider-Man movies. It's said that Ken Kutaragi was struggling to find a font that was suitable for the powerful new system until he cast his eyes upon a poster for Spider-Man 2 and instantly decided that he'd found the perfect typeface. Don't be surprised if the final PLAYSTATION 3 design features a port for extra web fluid too... DID YOU KNOW? Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's (SCEE) first in–house developed game was Total NBA 96. DID YOU KNOW? January saw the Japanese release of a brand new PlayStation peripheral called PocketStation. This diminutive hybrid Memory Card/PDA featured a tiny dot LCD screen, simple controls, and two–way infra red communication,
Japanese editions of games like Final Fantasy VIII, Spyro the Dragon and Crash Bandicoot: Warped featured downloadable mini–games for the unit, some of which would actually affect your progress in the main game when plugged back into PlayStation's Memory Card slot.
It was even possible to download programs on to PocketStation – many from underground developers – that would add extra functionality to the device, such as a universal remote control that worked with Sony–manufactured electronics.
