Super Mario Bros. wasn't one of the launch titles, but Duck Hunt was.

Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt, on the other hand, came out in later years.  ROB with Gyromite and Duck Hunt were what originally came with NES.
Yes it IS! It's true for two reasons: One, it was packaged with the NES, and two, according to Wikipedia:

Quote from: "Wikipedia"
Nintendo simultaneously released eighteen launch titles: 10-Yard Fight, Baseball, Clu Clu Land, Donkey Kong Jr. Math, Duck Hunt, Excitebike, Golf, Gyromite, Hogan's Alley, Ice Climber, Kung Fu, Mach Rider, Pinball, Stack-Up, Super Mario Bros., Tennis, Wild Gunman, and Wrecking Crew.

There's your first problem.  First of all, it doesn't even list Mario Bros. as one of the launch titles. MARIO BROS was indeed a launch title.  SUPER Mario Bros, however, was not.  I think it came out a few weeks, perhaps a month or two, later.  Whoever edited that wikipedia article fails at comprehention.

Also, the Super Mario Bros./Duck Hunt compilation did not become packaged with NES until 1988.  Three years after its launch.

You have to remember that the true NES launch was in New York in 1985, sort of as a test if it would do well in the US (That Wikipedia article makes no mention of this).  It was packaged with ROB and Duck Hunt.  It did tremendously well, and was released nation-wide soon after, THAT was when Super Mario Bros. came out in the US.

This site covers the launch pretty well.

I prefer the old school games more then the daily games, its cool to get a nes if you ask me.
There are alot of great tittles on the nes like :
Megaman 1 - 6
Zelda
Metroid
Contra
Mario
And alot more  :D, i would prefer a nes over a wii, but then again the wii keeps getting new games while the nes will have the same games.
Well see what you like :P
