Famicom

The Family Computer (Japanese: ファミリーコンピュータ) also known as the Famicom (Japanese: ファミコン) or FC for short is an 8-bit video game console that was released by Nintendo in most of Asia, including Japan (where it was first launched in 1983), the Philippines, China, Vietnam and Singapore. It was released as The Nintendo Entertainment System (abbreviated to NES or Nintendo) in North America, Europe and Australia in 1985.

Following a series of arcade game successes in the early 1980s, Nintendo made plans to produce a cartridge-based console. Masayuki Uemura designed the system, which was released in Japan on July 15, 1983 for ¥14,800 alongside three ports of Nintendo's successful arcade games Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr., and Popeye. The Nintendo Family Computer (Famicom) was slow to gather momentum; a bad chip set caused the initial release of the system to crash. Following a product recall and a reissue with a new motherboard, the Famicom’s popularity soared, becoming the best-selling game console in Japan by the end of 1984.
