The Nintendo Entertainment System, (often shortened as "NES," colloquially referred to as simply "Nintendo," and dubbed as the "Control Deck" on boxes and in documentation), also well-known as the Famicom, was Nintendo's second attempt to attract home consumers, following the modest success of the Color television Game in Japan.

In Japan and many other Asian countries, the NES was well-known as the Family Computer (or as it came to be later recognized, the Famicom); in some Asian countries, it was well-known as the Tata Famicom. It released in July 15, 1983in Japan, on the same day as Sega's SG-1000, which it beat with its technical superiority and stronger software library.

The Famicom offered unmatched technical power in its time for the lowest possible price, selling more than 1.4 million units in its first year and establishing console gaming as a mainstream market in Japan, a country that was before dominated by arcades and home computers (such as the PC-88, PC-98, FM-7, X1, and MSX).

The 8-bit video game console was released in 1985by Nintendo as the NES in North America, Europe and Australia. After the North American video game market failure of 1983, the NES was the perfect revitalization. It went on to become the blockbusting video game console of all time (up until the PlayStation).

Some of the Hollywood stars who owned the NES at the time included Robin Williams, Michael J. Fox, Whoopi Goldberg, Tom Hanks, Bruce Willis, and Tom Cruise.

The NES introduced numerous conventions that have become standard, including game controller D-pad, layout, third-party software licensing, and the business strategy of selling hardware at a loss and profiting from licensed software.
