Hmm yes, and no. I believe Sony spun the SNES Playstation as an CD add-on that had nothing to do with games, and the deal was originally made with the intention of having karaoke and encyclopaedias on it with all royalties going to Sony... including video games (that were mysteriously absent in the contract)...

I also believe that I had read somewhere/sometime (long ago so not entirely sure on this) that Sony wanted unrestricted rights to develop games using any Nintendo IP they wanted... In the end the deal fell apart and Sony took every scrap of industry knowledge they gained from Nintendo and developed the Playstation. Harsh lesson learned from Nintendo.
