The Nintendo Entertainment System (commonly abbreviated as NES) is an 8-bit video game console released by Nintendo in North America, Brazil, Europe, Asia and Australia. Its Japanese equivalent is known as the Nintendo Family Computer, or Famicom[1] (ファミコン Famikon?). The most successful gaming console of its time in Asia and North America (Nintendo claims to have sold over 60 million NES units worldwide), it helped revitalize the video game industry following the video game crash of 1983, and set the standard for subsequent consoles in everything from game design (the first modern platform game, Super Mario Bros., was the system's first "killer game") to business practices. The NES was the first console for which the manufacturer openly courted third-party developers, including Konami. The NES’ biggest competitors were the Sega Master System and the Atari 7800, but they posed very little threat to Nintendo’s dominance at the time.
