SNES Information

snes romsThe original Nintendo Entertainment System changed the landscape of the video game world forever. People went crazy over being able to buy their own gaming system for the home. Nintendo dominated the video game market in the United States and expanded quickly around the world. The NES was a repackaged form of the Japanese Family Computer or Famicom. Since the console was doing so well, Nintendo had no reason to move quickly on an upgrade until two electronics companies in Japan, NEC Home Electronics and Sega, launched their own slightly superior entertainment systems.

Of course, this made Nintendo step up and deliver their next videogame console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment system or SNES. To be fair, it did take Sega a while to perfect their product and begin to take over a large enough market share for Nintendo to take notice. However, once they did take notice, and saw that their dominance in the market was on shaky ground, the company began development on the SNES.

The battle between these two electronics companies is the stuff of legend. Sega came out with their Genesis console and begin to market it immediately as the cooler console that was intended for an older audience they even released advertisements that attacked the competition much like political advertising. Meanwhile, Nintendo took a different approach - the quality of their games. They were able to convert the popular arcade game from Capcom, "Street Fighter II" into a Super Nintendo game. It would be an entire year before Sega was able to do the same thing with their console. In the later years of the 16-bit generation war, Nintendo was able to gain back some of the market share they had lost to Sega with the game Donkey Kong Country, and even maintained this dominance over the PlayStation and Saturn as well.

Nintendo's own numbers show that they sold more than 20 million Super Nintendo consoles in the United States. Early on, it wasn't enough to break the record set by Sega, but in later years, it was shown that Nintendo eventually did outsell the competition.

Nintendo stopped making the SNES in 1999. Their final first party game for the system was Kirby's Dream Land 3, and their last third-party game for the console was Frogger. However, in Japan, the company continued making the Family Computer that the consuls were based upon until 2003. Although you can find Super NES systems occasionally on auction sites, the majority of people that enjoy these games play them using emulators and Super Nintendo Entertainment System ROMs. These games can be played exactly like they were played during childhood, controlled by similar controllers and with all of the 16-bit graphics and midi sounds that made these games great. If you enjoy playing SNES games, then take a look at the emulators that are out there that will allow you to play your favorite games on your PC or mobile device like those you can find at the link above.
