After all, it was a slugfest between the likes of Nintendo and Sega back then, and then Sony came along with their phenomenal bestseller, the PlayStation.

Well if a recent report from The New York Post (via Re/code) is to be believed, tomorrow could be when it makes its debut.

Last we heard, Snapchat’s original content was expected to debut “soon”, and we guess a launch tomorrow would allow it to fall into that “soon” category. Unsurprisingly Snapchat has yet to comment on the rumor, but if it is true we won’t have to wait much longer to find that out for ourselves.
