When Sony began development of the PlayStation on their own merits, Nintendo filed a lawsuit claiming breach of contract and attempted in US federal court to obtain an injunction against the release of what was originally named the "Play Station", on the grounds that Nintendo owned the name. The federal judge presiding over the case denied the injunction and in October 1991, the first incarnation of the PlayStation was revealed. Reportedly, only 200 of these early prototype units were produced.
