At the end of 1992, Sony and Nintendo reached a deal where the "Play Station" as it was still named, would have a port for SNES games, but Nintendo would own the rights and receive the bulk of the profits from the games, and the SNES would continue to use the Sony-designed audio chip. Sony later decided in early 1993 to begin reworking the "Play Station" concept to target a new generation of hardware and software. As part of this process the SNES cartridge port was dropped and the space between the names "Play Station" was removed becoming "PlayStation", ultimately ending Nintendo's involvement.
