The History of the Famicom Disk System
« on: July 16, 2016, 19:01:41 PM »
The Gaming Historian just released this video on this rather interesting add-on for the Famicom.  I had never heard of this device before.  Neat concept for its time.  Check it out...

I was quite surprised to see this.  Not something I would have had expected and it is rather interesting that games could be finished just a few days before release because of the medium being used!
