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 was released on July 15, 1983 in Japan, the same day as Sega's SG-1000.

The 8-bit video game console was released in 1985 by 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).

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.
