To combat unlicensed games and win back confidence of retailers in North America and Europe, the NES and all licensed games came with a lockout chip known as the 10NES or CIC. In this episode we take a look at this chip , the clone chip that was developed by Atari and how it took 20 years for the homebrew community to reverse engineer the chip and the challenges they faced.
