Near the end of the console's lifespan, Nintendo released the model 2 NES, known otherwise as the "top-loader" or "top-loading NES." This model uses an industry standard card-edge connector which lessens faulty connections between the system and the game and the lockout chip is removed since this was causing boot problems with the original front-loading model. For this reason, games released in Europe can also be played on this model. However the system does not have an LED light and only supports RF modulation. The console is also fastened with 3.5 mm security screws despite the fact that the lockout chip was removed.
