This week on Techy Tuesday, we’ll be looking at one of the “Top 10 Video Game Consoles of All Time”.
Without further ado, let’s get started!
The Nintendo Entertainment System is an 8-bit video game home console by Nintendo.Masayuki Uemura designed the console, originally meant to contain a keyboard and 16bit system. Unfortunately, Hiroshi Yamauchi declined this offer and wanted something cheaper to make. The systems original project name was “GameCom”. However, due to his wife offering a different name, the team went with “Famicom” meaning “Personal Computer in Japan. The NES released July 15,1983 in Japan and October 18, 1985, in North America.
However, it looked pretty different in Japan
Its design was pretty different back then in Japan with a red and cream like color(the image above). Nintendo had several titles release for this console, it was also really small so it was easy to carry around. With several games on the console such as Super Mario Bros, The Legend of Zelda, Donkey Kong, Wrecking Crew, Ice Climbers and much more!
It’s safe to say that Nintendo did well with this console.This console was so good that IGN put the consoles as one of the “Top 10 Consoles of All Time”. Unfortunately, Nintendo discontinued the console in North America August 14, 1995, a month after it’s release. Nintendo even made the NES CLassic Edition that sold like hotcakes. Nowadays it’s really hard to find these since Nintendo Discontinued these.Although, they didn’t really make a lot for everyone to get a chance to buy for some reason. Do you have an NES Classic Edition? Feel free to leave a comment below!
And that’s all for Techy Tuesday! Hopefully, you learned something new about one of Nintendo’s best consoles. Tune in next week to find out what console we’ll talk about next on Techy Tuesday.
Until Next Time 😛
