Okay it may be a bit late, but better late than never they say right?. Anyway this year it's actually been 10 years since I
bought my very own NES console, eventhough I had been totally into NES games a few years already, and had turned down an offer from my dad to
buy one for me and by younger brother as a christmas gift a few months earlier. Well today I was browsing through some old Nintendo related
notes and papers when I fell over the receipt from that evening back in 1992 when I got my Nintendo Entertainment System, and we all know what happened
to me afterwards... yes, I became a NES nut.
My NES was bought on March 6th 1992 at 17:55 ( receipt ). For those interested my family also bought a pair of jeans that
evening at the mega market (called Bilka), 2 crates of sodas, chips, clearasil (zit removal stuff, for my older brother!
*grin*), a bathroom scale and other various and very uninteresting stuff.
My first NES has packed in a beautiful black box, and came with a Super Mario Bros pack-in, in the European small-size box.
I remember having a bit of problems a few months later, the screen was flickering, so it was sent in for repair. It came back 2-3
weeks after with a note saying that there was nothing wrong, but the flicker was gone ( note ).
The repair was made by Electronic Fun, the danish Nintendo distributor which later was bought by a larger toy import company,
handling the Game Genie and Elite game distribution, called K.E. Mathiasen (pc/videogame division later renamed to K.E. Media).
On a side note can be said that K.E. Media no longer is the distributor of Nintendo gear, it was taken over by Bergsala, the
old swedish Nintendo importer, who opened a branch near Copenhagen earlier this year, if I remember correctly.
