Nintendo is a well known Japanese video game company that has been making consoles since the late 70's. Nintendo has proven itself over the years to be a solid game developer that is willing to take some design chances but also hold true to the family friendly experience in both its games and consoles. Both the NES and the SNES proved to be smash hits in both Japan and North American markets. There's a robust aftermarket for nintendo consoles and games; including some pirated versions out there for you to find. Below is an overview of Nintendo systems up to the classic Super Nintendo.

Famicom Console AV Version

As with the American version of the top loading NES, the Famicom version sports many of the same design elements. There is some differences including the lack of a hump for the game slot and the dual hinged slot cover which is more similar to a SNES in that respect. This console also came with two dogbone controllers, instead of just one. Several technical differences also further separate it from its North American counterpart.

Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES)

This was Nintendo's answer to the 16-bit Sega Genesis. Nintendo would eventually go on to win the 16-bit wars and claim a large share of the market.

Nintendo Knock Offs

Where to begin...The NES & SNES Systems are popular systems to knock off and over the years many companies have wanted to cash in on Nintendo's popularity and wannabe systems have flooded the US and overseas markets. They sport names like FC Twin and Neo Fami. They tend to be less expensive and sometime more reliable than a 25 year old system.Some even have additional video output options. I'm writing a guide for these Nintendo clone consoles and will link it here when I do.
