NES Zapper was a cool little piece of kit back in the day so that the game fans could use a realistic periphery to enhance their experience in titles such as Duck Hunt Wild Gunman and more . As always, someone out there must go and destroy the fun, with a man caught by the accessory in a shocking criminal act.
The earliest NES Zapper models, originally released in 1984, were almost entirely gray to fit with NES & # 39; color schemes. Shortly afterwards, Nintendo changed its design to include bright orange and realized that the simple gray models could potentially be mistaken for real weapons if taken outside. Of course the toy in the dark tape nails clearly this strong color, and that's exactly what happened in this case.
The taped weapon was used by a man in Hermosillo, Mexico to rob a bank, with the usual luminous color of the accessory almost completely hidden from view. Bank workers described the man of the local police who, after setting up an operation to find the culprit, were able to trace and arrest him. The current man is believed to have been involved in up to 15 other crimes.
