    Region locking a portable console specifically advertised to people who travel would be an interesting move

    Actually I believe the original ps was meant to be a Nintendo? Until they couldn't agree on terms.

    Sort of. It's a lot more complex than that.

    I thought Nintendo looked at it and thought it would be too costly or something. They weren't ready for CD, but looking back it was quite the error in judgement considering how piss poor most N64 ports were.
