Nintendo Entertainment System
The Nintendo Entertainment System, also known as the “NES”, is a video game console that uses 8-Bit graphics and processor. The NES was released in 1985, and in 1986-87 in Europe. The console was initially released in Japan with the name Family Computer, abbreviated as “Famicom”, in 1983. The NES helped rebuild the video game market after the crash of 1983. With the NES, Nintendo introduced the now standard business model of licensing third-party developers, and allowing them to produce and distribute titles for the NES platform. Most units sold where bundled with Super Mario Bros., one of the bestselling games ever released.
