 Sony has good pages about it's history in both  
 [Japanese](http://www.sony.co.jp/SonyInfo/CorporateInfo/History/SonyHistory/)  
 and  
 [English](http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/CorporateInfo/History/SonyHistory/)  
 language. There is also a NEWS chapter available in both  
 [Japanese](http://www.sony.co.jp/SonyInfo/CorporateInfo/History/SonyHistory/2-12.html#block3)  
 and  
 [English](http://www.sony.net/SonyInfo/CorporateInfo/History/SonyHistory/2-12.html#block3).  
 (Note "MIPS" in this article stands for "Media Information Products and  
 System" Business Group, not the MIPS processors.)  
   
 According to that page, the first NEWS machine appeared in January 1987,  
 in Japan. It was  
 [NWS-800](http://museum.ipsj.or.jp/en/computer/work/0005.html), which is  
 not supported by NetBSD/news68k as of this writing. It was designed for  
 replacement of VAX mini-computers on desktop. The price was  
 950,000-2,750,000 Yen (\$8800-\$25000 US) and they were selling very  
 well in Japan. The NEWS machines were used for DTP, CAD/CAM etc. They  
 were sold in USA and Europe (there are a few user of NetBSD/news68k in  
 USA and Italy) but the sales were hard because Sun Microsystems already  
 had big market share.  
   
 Sony released the newer MIPS based NEWS (NWS-3800) in December 1989, and  
 they were used for VOD system and internet server etc. Note that the  
 4.4BSD/Lite release also supported the news3400 models. Finally the NEWS  
 division in Sony has been dissolved in 1998.
