        • This might need to be split into two separate instruments, the NES and the Famicom (ファミコン, short for Family Computer/ファミリーコンピュータ). If memory serves, the Famicom was capable of producing more sounds than the NES was. --HibiscusKazeneko 06:30, 12 October 2012 (UTC)
          • Are you sure? NES is just the foreign name for FAMICOM. Jesus2099 22:05, 17 January 2013 (UTC)
            • Extremely. In case you haven't noticed, the two consoles were structurally completely different in many ways (most of which are irrelevant right now), but the Famicom had two pins on its edge connector that allowed game cartridges to expand the onboard sound capabilities of the console. One way this was utilized was through a built-in microphone in the second controller that would play back players' voices through the connected TV set. --HibiscusKazeneko 00:01, 18 January 2013 (UTC)
