Original Nintendo "Nintendo Entertainment System" History


Visitors: 225

The Original Nintendo Entertainment System is an 8-bit console system that was released in Japan on July 15th, 1983. Then it was released in North America October 18th, 1985. The Original Nintendo was based off of the idea to make Arcade games available in homes on a console system. The Donkey Kong Arcade games inspired this console idea.

The console itself came with a power output cord, a cable adapter cord, two controllers, and a game depending on the bundle pack purchased. The systems showed fault after a few years due to dust build up. A simple solution was blowing in the cartridge or using a dust removing spray(used on computers/laptop vent fans also). The Original systems still work to this day if maintained properly.

This dust problem was adjusted to the Super Nintendo so that the only area dust could enter is the cartridge slot. That is instead of dust covering the whole insides of the console. But the same solution was adapted to the 64 as well. Then Nintendo switched from cartridges to discs when the Gamecube was released. At that point Nintendo decided on making their consoles wireless and more compact.

Nintendo through the years has stuck to the nostalgic themes to establish a dedicated fan base. That is through game titles such as Super Mario Brothers, Zelda, Metroid, Kirby, and Donkey Kong series. The development of Nintendo will get more impressive based on the 25 year evolution of this revolutionary system.
