The NES Satellite

The NES Satellite is a Nintendo Entertainment System accessory created by Nintendo, and released in 1989.

The Satellite allows up to four players to play the NES anywhere in the room without the necessity of wires running from the NES to the players' controllers. To use, a small infrared receiver plugs into the two controller ports on the front of the NES. The main Satellite unit is powered by 6 C-cell batteries and must have a line of sight to the receiver. The unit has four controller ports which could accommodate any type of wired NES controllers. The unit includes "Turbo" selectors for both the A and B buttons.

A similar product called the NES Four Score was released a year later, although it did not allow wireless play.

There are not many four-player games for the NES that take full advantage of the Satellite's capabilities, so it is most useful for its wireless function.
