Famicom Disk System
W elcome to the new Famicom Disk System section! I'll be working hard to increase the number of reviews and scans in this part of the page in the coming days 'n' weeks, so stay tuned!

Despite the best efforts of us webmasters, there is still very little information about the FDS in English. Most people know it from playing some games on an emulator, or how Super Mario Bros. 2 was based on some disk game, or by seeing all those pirate disks and copies of FDS Zelda on Ebay go for way too much. I want to demystify this system - Nintendo in Japan spent almost two years of the FC's life working exclusively on the Disk System and there's a ton of games, special contests, literature, and other pieces of legacy remaining.

Despite what anyone on eBay says, FDS disks are not all that extremely rare in Japan. Go to a flea market or two and you'll definitely find at least a couple piles of disks at one stand or another. Many games don't have that much value either, as Nintendo still lets you copy new games onto disks if you send them some in the mail. As a result, the only things that are worth real dough are games that Nintendo aren't copying anymore (due to licensing or whatnot) or games that came with freebies. Hopefully I can get some more of these...

Anyway, enjoy the page and look forward to more in the future!
