The PC Engine was a collaborative effort between the relatively young Hudson Soft (founded in 1973) and NEC. NEC's interest in entering the lucrative video game market coincided with Hudson's failed attempt to sell designs for then-advanced graphics chips to Nintendo[4] in an earlier, lower-profile scenario similar to Nintendo's rejection of Sony's designs for a Super Famicom CD attachment which evolved into the PlayStation. The PC Engine was extremely popular in Japan, beating Nintendo's Famicom in sales soon after its release, with no fewer than twelve console models released from 1987 to 1993. But despite the system's success, it started to lose ground to the Super Famicom.
