The original Playstation was created during an agreement between Nintendo and Sony to make a disc based console for the Video-Game Market. The deal quickly went out the window after Nintendo found a clause in the contract that they had signed in 1988 that said Sony had complete control over any and all titles released on the console and soon after Nintendo dropped out and developed the Nintendo 64. Although Nintendo had dropped out Sony still had the console and had come up with a name, Playstation. After its release it became very popular and in 2002, 9 years and 6 months after its initial release in Japan the console became the first console to sell over 100 million units.
