The Nintendo and Sega platforms are the main competition for the new Sony PlayStation 2 which went on sale October 26, 2000 across the United States. The PS2 is already in short supply because Sony had to cut the initial American shipments of the gaming platform in half. The company originally promised 1 million units, but chip shortages forced Sony to reduce that figure to 500,000.

Nintendo Enthusiast further noted in the same report that the datamine coded Nintendo 64 games as “3,” SNES titles as “2,” and Sega Genesis as “5.” That said, the news outlet suggested that there could be a “4” platform that has yet to be revealed.

It is worth noting that some reports and leaks are saying that Switch Online could also include Game Boy or Game Boy Color gaming titles, but Nintendo has yet to confirm this.

What’s more, the datamine from the N64 app also included other classic games like all of the three “Mario Party” titles, along with “Mario Kart 64,” and “Mario Tennis.”

On top of that, other games like “F-Zero X,” “Banjo-Kazooie,” and “Kirby 64” were also included in the leak.
