Oh yeah don't forget the intellivision lol, I had one. Virtualboy was supposed to be the first 3d console, you wore it on your head and it produce games in red on black iirc.
Actually, Nintendo went with Philips instead but since the addon plans never materialized, that then led to Philips creating the CDi, whilst having the right to use Nintendo's intellectual properies, in which that led to sh*tty games
Sony, felt that they got done over by Nintendo, and with the R&D that they did for them, they decided to use it to their advantage, which led to Sony officially sticking their foot in the gaming industry with the PlayStation.
