Nintendo 64

Nintendo 64 (N64)

The Nintendo 64 (officially abbreviated as N64) was released in June 1996 in Japan, September 1996 in North America and March 1997 in Europe and Australia. It was the last major home console to use the ROM cartridge as its primary storage format. The N64 got its name from the 64bit central processing unit, which was unique back in the nineties when it got released.

The N64 was the last home video game console that used the popular cartridge format (except for the Nintendo Switch later in 2017); most other stationary consoles like the Sony Playstation or Sega Saturn started using optical discs as game media.
