If you really know your obscure nerdly gamer-facts, you'll know that Nintendo and Sony weren't always rivals. In the late eighties, they were collaborating on the 'SNES-CD,' the first attempt to bring CD-ROM technology to consoles. Well, first without it sucking ass (the Famicom Disk System was plagued by bastard pirates and the contents of the disks were easily erased).
When Nintendo decided balls to this mid-way through development, Ken Kutaragi, ‘The Father of PlayStation,' returned their middle finger and continued the work with Sony. And so the PS1 was released in 1994.
It's not the most thrilling story. There's probably a lot of paperwork and Asian businessmen dicking about in offices involved. Nobody has time for that shit. Unless, of course, the whole thing is brought to eighties-gangster-movie life by a troupe of piss-taking comedy dudes. As is the case right here.
Here, courtesy of Mega64, is the real PlayStation origin story. There's a little more snark, gunplay and dude's heads being run over by SUVs in this retelling, but these are all changes for the better. Behold Kutaragi's Way.
