Wasn't the PS1 supposed to be the N64 until sony split off?

Bet Nintendo has been kicking themselves for that ever since (with the possible exception of this generation).

Pretty sure they've been doing just fine without them, especially as of 2005.

That is a very long story with much back stabbing involved. Sony tried to screw over Nintendo in the deal (Sony would own any game released on the CD system, this was secretly added to the deal, and Nintendo almost missed it) Nintendo stabbed first by making a deal with Philips (and when that fell apart the CDi Zelda games were born)

Sony feeling betrayed decided to plan to enter the next gen as a full fledged console and get back at Nintendo. They also got all the CD drive makers in Japan to black list Nintendo, which pretty much forced Nintendo to go with carts.

This is a good nintendo fanboy version of the events.

Wow, first time anyone on this board has called me a Nintendo fanboy. Kinda still used to being called a Sony fanboy on the PS3 board.

Well this post is kind of idiotic in the first place so why not.

I know Nintendo has Metroid Prime (FPS)
And Sony has Killzone (FPS)
But Microsoft exclusives is way to many

There are a hell of a lot more FPS games on nintendo and sony consoles then those two, lol. In fact the PS3 has more games in the FPS genre the the 360.
