The Family Computer (often shortened to the 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 Family Computer was later re-released as the A/V Family Computer with these modifications.
