“Project Reality” was the first preliminary name of a game console that hit the Japan and US market under the name “Nintendo64″ on June 23 1996 (which of the names sound more visionary to you?). The working title probably expressed the idea of creating a true graphics working horse (the hardware was developed together with sgi a leading graphics workstation company at that time — who remembers the O2 workstations that were released in the same year?)
