The Family Computer (ファミコンピュータ in Japan), also known as the Famicom (ファミコン) is Nintendo's 6th home video game console ( the other 5 being the Color TV Games). It was released only in Asia and what America and Europe got was the Nintendo Entertainment System. There are three editions of the Famicom: one with square buttons, one with circle buttons, and the Famicom AV, which, (as its name suggests), supports only AV video connection. It ran for 20 years until being discontinued in 2003. It had every game the NES had, plus a few more that never came to America (and Europe). It had accessories and peripherals such as the Family Computer Robot, the Famicom Beam Gun, the Famicom 3D System, the Famicom Disk System, the Card Cleaner set for the Disk System, the Head Cleaning Set, also for Disk System. Also, there's the infamous Power Glove, the Family Basic Data Recorder, the Family Basic Keyboard, and the Family Computer Network system.
