Check Out Nintendo's Presence At CES In 1992

A video on YouTube shows Nintendo at CES three years before E3's first official show.

It's not a new video (it's been on YouTube since 2010), but it's a fascinating peek at the video game trade show as it existed before E3. This video shows Nintendo at CES in 1992. E3's first show was in 1995, so before it existed, CES was the destination for raising excitement for the future of video games.

You will see new (at the time) video games, lots of people wearing suits, awkward on-stage dancing, and a severely depressed Yoshi coming to terms with the fact that it would be years before starring in his own game without Mario riding on his back.
