Bit Museum Showcases Nintendo's Pre-Famicom Days

Game developer does video gaming archaeology on YouTube

If you haven't heard of mobile phone and WiiWare game developer Robotube Games, it's possible you may have come across their Bit Museum video series on YouTube, presented by designer Jason Cirillo.

We think they're some of the best gaming videos on the 'net with a special focus on the earliest and oddest gaming consoles ever to see the light of day.

Of special interest to you, dear Nintendo fan, will be the premiere episode that showcased the company's early efforts -- not the Famicom, but the single-game consoles Nintendo made in the late '70s that you've probably never heard of.

Check out this excellent (and humourous) look at the dawn of Nintendo gaming:
