Nintendo PlayStation prototype has been fully restored.

If you cast your mind back to the summer of 2015, you might remember the discovery of the Nintendo PlayStation prototype that turned out to be the real deal.

Engadget had a fiddle with the console a couple of times last year and in the video above, they explain that so far they’ve managed to get the console to play SNES games, but not CD-ROM games or audio CDs.

Terry Diebold, one of the owners of the console, left it with Engadget for a month, with the goal of getting it fully working by the Midwest Gaming Classic 2017. And that’s exactly what they did.

You can check out the finer details in the video.
