Power Player Super Joy III
The Power Player Super Joy III consoles (now known as Power Games) are a line of unauthorized handheld Nintendo Entertainment System/Famicom clones manufactured by NRTRADE that are sold in The Americas and Europe. The system resembles a Nintendo 64 controller and attaches to a TV set. NTSC, PAL and SECAM versions are available. They all use a custom "NES-on-a-Chip" (NOAC) that is an accurate copy of the NES's hardware (Custom 6502, PPU, PAPU, etc).
The consoles come with 150 built-in games, although marketing frequently claims to have 76,000+ ways of playing them. Most of the included games were originally released for the NES or Famicom, but some have been created by the manufacturer to expand their list of included games. Most of the games have had their title screen graphics removed to save space on the ROM chip.
After this product gained some popularity, the Power Player 3.5, an improved model with more games, was released. See also: Wireless power player
Nintendo has been taking strong legal action against importers and sellers of the consoles, and has obtained a temporary restraining order against the import and sale of video game systems containing counterfeit versions of Nintendo games.
