The Family Computer (often shortened to Famicom) was the first ever console released by Nintendo. The console had two hard-wired controllers which could be stored in compartments on the sides of the unit for use with two player games. The system was modified slightly, and released as the Nintendo Entertainment System in North America and Europe; changes included larger cartridges, detachable controllers and support for A/V cables. The Famicom was later re-released as the A/V Family Computer with these modifications.
