"It's the K-size of the microchips in the cartridges that dermine how challenging and exciting the games are to play. And the bigger the K-size of the microchip the better the graphic definition, color, and sound."

How amusing to read that. And, yet, that's how techie kids thought back in the day. I know I did. So a 32K cartridge was like uber-elite. And it applied to computers and consoles too, not just the game cart. We didn't care so much about clock speed as we did memory. 1 MHz was fast enough. Not till about 1984 and later did MHz begin to take center stage.
