The Nintendo PlayStation can finally play CD games

It was no small feat when Terry and Dan Diebold got their hands on a prototype of the fabled Nintendo PlayStation, but there has always been a catch to it: its signature feature, the CD drive, couldn’t actually play games. Even a load of repair work barely got the drive to turn on. Well, the end is finally in sight. Professional tinkerer Ben Heckendorn (aka Ben Heck) has managed to get the CD drive working, including games. The solution, as he explains, involved replacing some “questionable” capacitors and “jiggling some things around” — he was caught off-guard when things started working. The biggest challenge now is finding games to use with the near-mythological system.
