    Of the NES & SNES in Japan [​IMG] Yup, even after all those years, Nintendo was still cranking out new NES & SNES machines for its home market.

    It's too bad they weren't producing the top loading NES still. I really want one of those.

    i saw one of those top loading NES when i was in japan a couple years ago and had no idea what it was...mostly because the japanese RPG game it was playing looked "foreign" (giggle)

    Thats pretty amazing they were still producing these things! I wonder why? The demand can't be very large for it.

    What the fuck is an NES or SNES?

    All I see are Nintendo's Famicom and Super Famicom in Japanese stores [​IMG]

    Wow... Considering how long the Famicom was around in Japan (1983, right?), it must have been in production for longer than the Atari 2600 - Atari's last game for the system was Secret Quest in 1989, only a measley 12 years after Combat. The Activision and Atari 10-in-1 units, from what I gather, don't actually use 2600 hardware.

    Huh. I'd always thought the 2600 was the longest-lived system.

    Speaking of the snes system, i got the bargain of a lifetime on a super nintendo in near mint condition ! At my local game crazy , the system with 2 controllers and a copy of mario allstars plus mario world for an amazing 24.99 , try to beat that ! The icing on the cake was mario all stars plus world came with instructions and box.[​IMG] [​IMG]
