The SNES Disk Drive was made to compete with the sega cd. this would be developed by sony, however after nintendo realized that sony had all the rights to the add on, nintendo started to work with philips, who was sony's rival at the time. sony, outraged by this, started developeing games for the sega cd, and also stoped working on the add on for nintendo, and released it as it's own counsel, called the playstation. philips released the add on as it's own independent counsel, now known as the CD-i.
