    That's amazing. Serious collectible. Would be good if someone could make it work but I doubt that the optical drive could play real PS1 games due to BIOS differences at a minimum.

    It also seems that the Nintendo half was made with the same crappy flame resistant plastic chemicals that our beloved standard SNES' were.

    That just means it's solid. My SNES has fallen down and landed upside down while I was playing it and the game didn't even freeze. It fell from the top bunk too. I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to sit it up there. lol

    No solid. The yellowed plastic becomes extremely brittle. I've seen several SNES systems chip even without excessive stress. Even the screw threads begin to become so stressed that they crack on their own, even at factory tolerances.

    But it was solid back before they began to yellow. I actually had a 25" CRT fall on one back in the day. Long story.

    Since a lot of my family smokes, I just figured it was nicotine sticking to the system. lol

    This goes well beyond a collectable. This is more like a museum piece.

    Just Wow. That would be cool to have.

    @phantom: That can add to it.

    I don't see the word Nintendo ANYWHERE on it. Are we sure this is real?

    There were to be two devices. An optical drive add-on for the SNES with Sony tech, and a Sony system that played SNES and Playstation games.

    There probably were many different prototypes for these things.
