Nintendo AV Famicom (Nintendo Famicom) (Pre-Played)
The HVC-101 model of the Family Computer is a redesign of the video game console of the same name (commonly known by the shortened nickname of Famicom) released by Nintendo in Japan in the early 1980s. While officially called the Family Computer, exactly the same branding as the original HVC-001 model, it was also marketed as the AV Famicom (AV仕様ファミコン Eibui Shiyō Famikon) or New Famicom (ニューファミコン Nyū Famikon) to distinguish it from the original model. It was released in Japan on December 1, 1993 with a retail price for ¥6800, and remained in production until September 2003. The HVC-101 console is stylistically similar to the NES-101 model released in North America a few months earlier, but has some slight design changes to suit the different needs of the Japanese market.
