Has anyone ever found a prototype for that brief fucking moment in the 90s that Siemens wanted to make a game console?

It was called MSX or MSF or something, I remember reading about it here in European gaming magazines.

NEX? I faintly remember it, but there weren't even any screenshots or anything.

It took 20 years for the Americans to catch up to the Japanese and make a competitor (Microsoft) to the Japanese consoles.

Americans never caught up. If it wasn't for sega, xbox would of been much different or even a complete failure

>> No.2064883

The original Xbox was a failure, it's existence was propped up entirely by money, it had no success outside of the states.

It only came into real market control when the Wii ran out of steam and PS3 was hacked to shit.

>> No.2064894

Yea but It had classic titles unlike 360 and one. Though most were sega. It also sold more than the gc but even the dc would of if it lasted that long

>> No.2065003

It wasn't a failure, it sold more than the GameCube, and all consoles are made with the purpose to make money.

>> No.2065114

Nah. It was a failure because Anon didn't like it and no one (literally wut) bought it, even though it sold 24mil units. Of course, the PS2 outsold the Xbox by more than six times over, but I doubt many would consider the Xbox a failure.

This is like saying that because Kraft Macaroni and Cheese isn't sold outside of the US and Canada, that it's a failure even though it's very, very popular.

The fact remains that the only thing that matters is profits. And Xbox earned Microsoft many, many millions of dollars on the sale of Halo 2 alone, which netted Microsoft $15 per unit sold. It sold 8mil units on Xbox and a couple hundred thousand on PC.

>> No.2065119

And before I'm accused of otherwise, I don't like Xbox. I don't hate it, either, cuz I don't know much about it other than the salestorm caused by Halo 2.
I've never even held an Xbox controller.

I'm surprised no one has posted that PSX thing. You know. The Playstation X. Or is that not a prototype?

>> No.2065123

I was implying that it was only successful in the US. I guess I didn't make it very clear.

>> No.2065503

Googled it

The Sega Master System Floppy Disk Drive is an unreleased peripheral for the Sega Master System. It seems that at one point, as well as being able to run cartridges and Sega Cards, Sega had planned for their console to be able to run 3.5-inch floppy disks. It can be seen as a spiritual successor to the Super Control Station SF-7000.

The floppy disk drive would have been attached underneath the Master System console (Power Base), similar to the original Sega Mega-CD. Little else is known about the peripheral, and we do not know if a Sega Mark III version was planned. It is likely that cost played a large part in the cancellation of this accessory - in 1986 3.5-inch floppy disks were still expensive to produce (at least in comparison to other media formats).

Sega would plan a floppy disk drive for the Sega Mega Drive too, though again this would not be released, however a floppy disk drive for the Sega Saturn would eventually see a release in Japan.

Floppy disk drive.....for the Sega Saturn. Why....

That's very "Sega" to release a peripheral that runs on an inferior media than the default disc of the system, though. Sounds like something they'd do.

You would use normal audio cassette tapes like on the Spectrum (they were slow as hell, but they were cheap).

Just poked around a little and found some more pictures. It looks like that middle switch had something to do with the SFC prototype being backwards compatible with Famicom games. Maybe you'd set the switch one way to play Famicom, the other way to play SFC.

>> No.2068824

Switch between famicom and super famicom games. Nintendo wanted to make the sfc backward compatible but it was too expensive.
The famicom has a similar port on the front. Probably meant for extra controllers or expansions.

they also made a wideboy for the n64 (there was a snes one as well, besides the Super Game Boy)

basically they were for devs and game review magazines. devs used them so they could see their games on a bigger screen during development, and game magazines used them to get proper screenshots of game boy games.

Beiderman's work was contracted by Camerica, who Nintendo hated and sued repeatedly.
