Originally released in Japan under the moniker of Famicom, the little NES isn't a terribly powerful machine, but is sure did the trick.

PAL Version
Nintendo Entertainment System 2
The NES 2 featured the use of a top-loader instead of the horizontal loading device in the original NES. The controller was given a make-over with a more ergonomic feel which resembled the new SNES control pad, it's often referred to as the 'Dog Bone controller'.
