johannesmutlu Posted August 2, 2022 Share Posted August 2, 2022 (edited) 1,Back in the day when both atari and nintendo ALMOST finalized a deal in wich atari was allowed to distribute the famicom under their brand name in the us,BUT due disaggreements about coleco’s versions of nintendo’s ip’s on coleco’s adam computer and due atari’s financial problems and the fact that atari would only make little profits from this deal,eventually did ended this deal,BUT atari was still allowed to secure the rights for nintendo’s mariobros to be ported to their gane consoles while nintendo was allowed to port atari’s joust and centipede (milipede) to their nes/famicom system, 2,while philips and nintendo did ALMOST finalized a deal to make philips CDI addon for the snes,BUT once nintendo saw no success in the philips CDI multimedia system,they pullet the plug from the wallet,BUT philips was still allowed to make a few exclusive zelda and mario games for their CDI system, 3,while sony and nintendo did ALMOST finalized a deal to make a snes CD addon,BUT once nintendo realized that in the contract sony would get full control of all the games released for it,nintendo pulled the plug from it ,BUT sony was still allowed to publish som snes games under their brand name (sony inagesoft),even after when nintendo came and went from philips back to sony and decided to team up with both to make a more powerful snes CD addon,BUT due it’s high cost,long developing time,the slowly aging snes in 1993 and the fact that nintendo did saw the failure of their competitor’s CD rom addons,did eventually let nintendo decided to pull the plug from the project (i personally could hardly imagine who in the right mind would ever buy a $299 addon for a $199 aging console in 1994) eventrough it sounded sooo cool on paper. so while those deals between those company’s did eventually ended up into a fiasco,BUT their assets do still remain in an form or snother???
