                                                                                                  Official Heritage Auctions images confirm the state of the Nintendo PlayStation, now on the auction block.                                                                                                                            

                                      

                                                                   Comes with everything seen here.                                                                                                        Heritage Auctions                                                      

                  

                                      
                                                                   Confirming the indentations on the bottom of this fabled console.                                                                        
                  

                                      
                                                                   Branding on the back of the only Super Famicom controller with an official “PlayStation” logo.                                                                                     

                                      

                                                                   We don’t suggest buying this incredibly expensive device and then hooking it up to a TV, but if you feel so inclined, here’s confirmation that it works the same as a Super Famicom.                                                                                                        Heritage Auctions                                                                   

                                      

                                                                   A detailed zoom on the back of the RAM cartridge, which is required to get the CD-ROM unit to work. (Even with this plugged in, it doesn’t really work as intended.)                                                                                                        Heritage Auctions                                                                   

                                      

                                                                   Say “hello!” to the Nintendo PlayStation, as seen at the Portland Retro Gaming Expo.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                                   

                                      

                                                                   Original owner Terry Diebold pointed out that the Nintendo PlayStation controller’s jack had a Sony logo printed into it …

                                      

                                                                   … even though the controller itself has a Nintendo logo printed into it.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                                   

                                      

                                                                   Let’s put the RAM cartridge in, then.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                                   

                                                                                                    Nope. No dice. This is the best error message that the Diebolds and Ben Heck found after hacking away at the system’s components for some time.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                      
                    

                                        

                                                                     Note the colored boxes on the corners of the Super Disc start-up screen. Those are the same as the Super Famicom’s iconic four-color spread.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                      
                    

                                        

                                                                     Thanks to laser diode issues, this continues to be the only error message seen upon placing a CD into the Nintendo PlayStation.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                      
                    

                                        

                                                                     Top of the system. The Diebolds would have to carve into the top of the unit to get American cartridges to fit, but the cartridges do work.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                      
                    

                                        

        •                                                              The front is a victim of some nasty yellowing.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                   
                          
                    

                                        

          •                                                              Interesting “1” and “2” indentations in the front.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                   
                          
                    

                                        
                                                                     Buttons.                                                                                                        Sam Machkovech                                                      ( , the fabled “Nintendo PlayStation” turned out to be a real thing
