Gaming History You Should Know – The NES Expansion Port December 11, 2015Posted by Maniac in Gaming History You Should Know, Uncategorized.
As I was only a child in the early 90s I fondly remember owning an original model Nintendo Entertainment System. While the machine was based on inexpensive technology, it was quite ahead of its time. Not only did the console come equipped with RCA Video and Audio outputs as standard, something that only extremely expensive TVs of the time could make use of, anyone who took a good look at the console could find an interesting custom expansion port on the bottom of the console. This port was never used by any official NES peripheral and did not get included when the NES was redesigned as a top loader, so what was it meant for?
