Retro Nintendo Pricing Ad- A thing of beauty.

Isn’t it amazing how times have changed? This ad reflects arguably the greatest home gaming console of all time, the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) sold at an amazing price of $79.99. I am aware that the inflation has happened since the 1980’s, but still systems were much less expensive back then. The NES changed the industry from a household brand name perspective, at a lower cost. The quality was there and Nintendo made it’s money from volume. Lower priced systems with more systems sold equaled success for the video game giant. Platformers like Super Mario Bro’s and Kirby’s Adventure brought smiles to kids across the world. Finding this ad took me back to the days of 2nd grade, when i ran home from the bus stop, quickly entered my room, and took out the gray cartridges of Megaman 2 and Legend of Zelda. My parents sacrificed so much to buy the NES for me and my 7 brothers and sisters. Do you remember Saturday mornings as a kid, waking up watching cartoons and playing Nintendo? I hope the Nostalgia of this classic advertisement takes you back to a simpler time in your life. Take a minute to remember how you blew the cartridges, put the old TV with the turnable knob on channels 3 or 4, and played until you passed out! Great times! #Nintendo
