|Video Game Hardware Part Numbers Reference Guide
This document, written by Xious / FVE, draws from the resources of many, including my own knowledge and experience. All other contributors and references are listed at the end.
The purpose of this is to aid collectors and dealers alike, as well as for my personal reference, for assigning OEM part numbers to all video game hardware products and parts.
This is merely the beginning, and due to the extensive amount of data that will go into it upon completion−if completing it is even possible, given the resources available−I expect it to take a very long time to finish and I will require the aid of many in the process.
I am starting with Nintendo products, and in the process, I wish to demystify some of the more obscure parts and items. Thank you for reading, and please feel free to contact me with additions, or with corrections (which I will review). If you have a submission or correction, please provide valid evidentiary support for it (e.g. photos).
Nintendo Part Numbers
The following are part numbers for all Nintendo systems up to the release of the N64. Anything newer than that is well beyond my experience and if you wish to assist, I could use a parts list for their newer consoles in all markets, else I will not be including it. (It isn’t important to me on a personal level, as I don’t even consider the N64/UFC a classic console yet, so I’m in no rush to add the GameCube or other devices to this list.
I also need part numbers for the Nintendo PONG consoles and their accessories, PSUs, etc; plus Game & Watch par numbers as well.
This list encompasses Nintendo Co, Ltd. (Japan), Nintendo of America, and Nintendo of Europe’s parts. I need Canadian part numbers as well, if and when they differ from the standard USA numbering.

PAL NES Part Codes: Researching…

Note: PAL part numbers for Europe & Australia have a SNSP designation, instead of the SNS designation used in North America, although the Pal system shares parts more readily with the Super Famicom (SHVC); some of these parts are directly interchangeable if using a PAL system in an NTSC region, and some, such as the Power Supply are more desirable as such. The PAL Super NES, generally speaking, uses the same parts as the Super Famicom, but not the Super NES in North America, and shares its aesthetic design. Controllers are interchangeable between all three systems.
