Nintendo PlayStation sells big, SpaceX Dragon's final flight
This is CNET and here are the stories that matter right now.
The Nintendo PlayStation [UNKNOWN] failed Frankenstein's monster of an experiment between video game giant Nintendo and Sony has sold at auction for $360,000.
The prototype unit is one of an alleged 200 ever produced and was sold by Heritage Auctions, an auctioneer based in Dallas, Texas.
The console would play both discs and cartridges.
But it never came to be.
Nintendo signed a deal with Philips for a CD based gaming platform and Sony went on to release the original disc-only PlayStation.
SXSW, an annual media festival in Austin, Texas has been cancelled due to escalating fears over the corona virus.
A number of big social media networks had already pulled out for 2020 including Facebook, Tik Tok and Twitter.
It's the first time in its 34 year history that the event has been canceled.
Austin public officials said it was not a panic based decision, but note that the closest person to person contact and size and scale South by Southwest factored in their decision to advise canceling the event.
And finally, Elon Musk's SpaceX is moving on from Dragon one launching the cargo capsule to the International Space Station.
The last time on Saturday.
Dragon one is currently on route to the ISS and is expected to dock with the station Monday morning carrying 4500 pounds of supplies.
Once your attendance to Earth in around a month's time, it will head into retirement and is set to be replaced by a newer version cargo dragon 2 later this year.
That model is very similar to the Dragon capsule that will eventually ferry astronauts to the ISS hopefully sometime in 2020.
