Nintendo PlayStation Latest Update: CD-ROM Games Are Finally Available To Play

May 09, 2017 02:57 PM EDT


Nintendo's unreleased console kick-started a stuttering relationship with Sony, wherein the console could play games from SNES cartridge and Sony-built CD Drive. Due to the tumultuous history, not many games are available in the market that is compatible with the CD Drive.

The Verge explained how Ben Heckendorn got the CD player working after a year long try. He said that he tinkered with the original capacitors as they were incompetent, along with few technical tweaks that turned on the CD player. The hack remains to slack perfection as the emulator and the actual assessment of the CD by the machine does not seem to be on the same page.

"Super Boss Gaiden," which was released in 2016, was the first title ever to be released under the controversial console. The hack will encourage coders who can build on the Nintendo-level processing power and bank on the CD storage capacity.

However, coders will have their task cut out as paging the emulator to the machine's assessment will be tough. The major problem in terms of gaming is that not a single developer had ever written official games for the Nintendo Playstation paired with Sony.

Other than the technical point of view, End Gadget reported that many have raised their eyebrows regarding the initial plan that Nintendo and Sony developed years ago. The relationship startled everyone, and Ben Heckendorn's hack seems to fuel that thought.

Some of the users have registered complaints regarding the screen getting booted while playing a game on Nintendo Playstation. This will test the acumen of gamers and developers who are willing to jump on the bandwagon.

The revelation has garnered critical applause, and much will depend on how well Ben Heckert on betters the CD fiasco. No official statements were made by Nintendo or Sony yet. Meanwhile, for more updates on Nintendo Playstation stay tuned with us!
