In the event that you find any official Nintendo or non-handheld console, translate it and hide it in history and in small print down the road you will find a code that usually starts with three letters. Flip over your Switch, for example, you'll get a code HAC-001, and extras (-01) if you have a revised model for better battery life.
These product codes have been part of Nintendo's hardware from the start and you'll find them in every Nintendo-made, cartridge, disc, accessory and peripheral. Slide the Joy-Con left to your switch and you'll see it HAC-015 name on the back (right of course) HAC-016); the Joy-Con grip that comes with this console is HAC-011; Pro controller HAC-013; Change game carts HAC-008; the Ring-Con HAC-022; the velcro Joy-Con wrap item HAC-023…
But otherwise the internal calculation is applied to all parts of the computer under the console umbrella, does this invention have meaning? Today we're going to go through all Nintendo & # 39; s computer product code and look at where they came from. Some of their origins are well known (or obvious), and some are known only by Nintendo developers who have named them.
We knew most of the codes below, but we didn't need to look back on our comfort or go Maru-Chang a webpage for a few other anonymous.
We start with a trusted Nintendo Entertainment System, or Famicom in Japan …
Famicom (HVC) / NES (NES)
In the Nintendo world Famicom and its other brands carried that calling HVC, or & # 39; Home Video Computer & # 39 ;. The main unit of the console remains & # 39; -001 & # 39; and AC adapter usually & # 39; -002 & # 39 ;, with controllers coming later. The Famicom controllers were connected to the basic console, however, and therefore, received no separate code. An RF switch was made, however (HVC-003), as did the Famicom 3D System pictured above, and much more.
In the West, Nintendo Entertainment System gets the most Nintendo product codes: NES. Notable advancements include pad control pad (NES-004), Zapper (NES-005) and, Cleaning Kit (NES-030).
Game Boy (DMG) / Boy Pocket Game (MGB) / Color for Boys (CGB)
Perhaps the most famous of Nintendo's product codes, the original Game Boy is still known as the DMG(-01) to distinguish it from the holder of the different machine parts that followed. DMG stands for Dot Matrix Game and is a reference to the program.
Game Boy Pocket held the product code MGB-001, & # 39; Mini Game Boy & # 39; being the most likely explanation given to the Game Boy's entire family tradition. Game Boy Light (Japan-backlitlit version only) was designated as the MGB-101 in line with other innovative renaming modes (such as NES-101 / HVC-101).
Boys' Color of the Game got it CGB product code … because it was Color The Boy's Game.
Super Famicom (SHVC) / Super NES (SNS / SNSP)
In Japan Super Famicom was logically followed from its predecessor and became known as The SHVC-001, or & # 39; Super Home Video Computer & # 39 ;. Things changed to release North America where it came from SNS-001 (Super Nintendo System), and in Europe it was SNSP-001 (it may & # 39; P & # 39; represent & # 39; PAL & # 39;). The controllers were 005 and Game Paks (or the chariots for everyone except Nintendo) it was .06.
Visible Boy (VUE)
Visible Boy (VUE-001) given the journey exactly if its product code is to be believed; & # 39; Virtual Utopia Experience & # 39 ;, obviously. Personally, we would have gone for a more accurate acquisition of & # 39; IN-001 & # 39; – Migraine-Inducing Nightmare, even though Tamagotchi-style Pokémon Mini uses that product code. Feel free to leave your suggestions in the comments, though.
Game Boy Advance (AGB) / Game Boy Advance SP (AGS) / Boys Micro Game (OXY)
After joining the MGB and CGB, Game Boy Advance was named AGB-001, or & # 39; Game Developer Boy & # 39 ;. Other important parameters include the good ol & # 39; AGB-005 (GBA connection cable) and the A – 1515 sexier (Wireless Adapter).
The updated Clamshell Game Boy Advance SP received a completely different code: AGS – Improved Game Boy Special, perhaps? While we can make sense of this product code by guessing what you've learned, the origins of Game Boy Micro & # 39; s OXY-001 the code is not easy to be divine. Maybe it's referring to the oxetocin that is released by our pituitary gland every time we look at the size of a console icon? For the average person, Micro is crippled to play at any given time, but my voice is a little sexy.
Nintendo 64 (NUS)
Nintendo 64 was originally called Ultra 64 (Ultra is better than Super, natch), though Nintendo has decided to counter that late in the console's expansion. It was the Podenamed Project Reality code when Nintendo and Silicon Graphics, Inc were working on it, but the product code on Hardware eventually revealed the console's real name: NUS (Nintendo Ultra Sixty-four).
Other notable parameters (and the N64 had many & # 39; Paks & # 39;) include Rumble Pak (NUS-013), extension Pak (NUS-007), Transfer Pak (NUS-019) and it is important a small tool, the Jumper Pak Ejector (NUS-012).
