A rare prototype Nintendo Play Station went under the hammer for $ 300 thousand

The prototype Nintendo Play Station console, which never made it to mass production, was sold at auction for $ 300,000. The buyer was Greg McLemore – the founder of the dotcom pets.com. Along with him, Oculus VR CEO Palmer Lucky fought for the console.

Specialists from Sony and Nintendo worked on the console; in total, two hundred prototypes were made. But the console did not reach serial production: the project was turned off in 1991, and in 1994 the world saw the first PlayStation.

The Nintendo Play Station seller claimed that they offered him $ 1.2 million for the console, but he refused, considering the price too low. As a result, the prefix was sold for only $ 300 thousand. However, the buyer, in addition to three hundred thousand, will give another $ 60 thousand from above – this is the collection of the auction house, which conducted the auction.
