Sony’s entry into the home game console field started as a collaboration with Nintendo. But when Nintendo dropped out of the project, Sony persevered, releasing its PlayStation in 1994 in Japan and 1995 in North America. The PlayStation sold more than 100 million units and led to three successful follow-ons: the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation Portable.
