Here is a blast from the past. Back in the early 90's you wouldn't be able to walk into any department store without seeing these displays all over the place for Nintendo and Sega Genesis. What if you owned a store though? Did you know about each specific key that opens each display? What about changing the volume? Or even switching games? No worries because Nintendo had an instructional video that will teach you how to run all of your displays!

Posted by PenguinNintendoAge on Youtube, this 1992 video will show you about all of the different displays available for The NES, SNES and Gameboy along with instructions on how probably use your new equipment!

I remember going into department stores as a kid like Sears, JC Penny, Wal Mart and even Toys R Us and seeing these things set up all the time. Back then we didn't have Youtube or even the Internet to learn about new games. Back then you either saw a commercial on TV, read about it in a magazine, learned about a game from a friend or played one of these marquee displays in a store. This is a major blast from the past and I love watching videos like this and am happy we have a platform like Youtube today to preserve history like this.
