The recently discovered ultra rare prototype ''Nintendo PlayStation'' hybrid console has finally been switched on.

The console was discovered four months ago and is one of just 200 ever made by the companies who had teamed up to release a CD Rom playing version of the SNES before going their separate ways.

Engadget tracked down owners Terry and Dan Diebold to see the console in action-only to discover that while SNES games could be played no problem, the CD Rom was not functioning. 

In a bid to silence those who are still claiming the find to be a hoax, the console has been X rayed and disassembled to reveal Sony chips and a custom operating system inside. 

The find is a genuine piece of gaming history-and is most likely worth a whole lot more than the $75 the Diebold's paid for it at a bankruptcy auction.
