Bit Corp. (Traditionnal: 普澤, Pǔ zé) is a developer and publisher from Taiwan which developed numerous games for the Atari 2600, Famicom/NES and Gamate. Bit was one of the first Taiwanese console manufacturers[1] and game developers.

Overview Edit

During their lifetime, they made numerous unlicensed games and consoles. Their games were unlicensed (although this was standard for Atari 2600 games) and their Atari 2600 games were released in Europe with both English and German titles.

Their Famicom/NES games were published by various companies in PAL regions, especially Australia and Brazil, and all with the exception of Dian Shi Ma Li (and possibly Duck) were published by themselves in Taiwan. Bit Corp. went out of business in 1992 due to competition from Hong Kong and Chinese clone manufacturers.[1]

International Activities Edit

BITArgentina

Back label advertising Bit Argentina

In the early 90s, Bit Corp created a subsidiary in Argentina. They imported various games from Taiwan and sold them in South America. It seems Bit Argentina lived a bit longer than Bit Corp. For example, they had the time to import and release a mapper hacked Street Fighter II.
