At one point during development, Ken Kutaragi was almost fired by Sony on the grounds that he was working with Nintendo on the side without Sony's knowledge while still employed by Sony. Norio Ohga, who was Sony's CEO at the time recognized the potential in Kutaragi's SPC-700 chip, and in working with Nintendo on the project. Ohga allowed Kutaragi to remain employed at Sony, and it was not until Nintendo cancelled the project that Sony decided to develop its own console.
