Parents Upset Over New Nintendo Console – Circa 1991

There are a few things with this video that makes it more amusing than it actually is. The news anchors hair, the use of the word Nintenpendant, people complaining that an SNES cost $200, the 3D effect in F-Zero is “Pretty good”, and that whole F-Zero segment is hilarious.

In 1991, local newsstation reports Nintendo released their successor to the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) in America. But the parents wasn’t too happy about it. The parents thought Nintendo was exploiting their children into buying new and expensive hardware for new games when the improvements to the new hardware were obvious.
