"With the addition of the Famicom Disk System, this meant the Famicom could actually be used as a simple desktop computer". - This is complete nonsense. How is this supposed to work? Obviously, you can't insert both the Family BASIC cartridge and the FDS' RAM adapter into the Famicom's cartridge slot at the same time. :) Family BASIC (HVC-007) saves its data to cassette tape using the Famicom Data Recorder (HVC-008), which connects to the Family Basic keyboard, which in turn connects to the Famicom's expansion port. ExciteBike also was not programmed using Famicom BASIC, as the article states, it just saves the custom track data to cassette tape using the same Data Recorder peripherial. Unless somebody objects, I'm changing the article soon. NewRisingSun 19:10, 15 April 2006 (UTC)
