oohh, I HAVE to look at this clip now, lol.Still early on but they're talking about FF7. Apparently most of the programmers at Square wanted to go with Sega. Then the development manual game. It was loose pages in a binder. Which meant that things were subject to change. By comparison the PSone was bookbound.
Yes, this was the turning point. Haven't watched the video, but I think Sony entering the console race "legitimized" games for many people since it was from an electronics company that was well known.
I haven't watched the video yet but business wars podcast did a 5 part series on Nintendo vs Sony that is awesome. Explains the whole CD add that Sony was working on and why Nintendo backed out on the deal and how that pissed kutaragi off so much.
