In the early 90's, Bit Corp. created a subsidiary in Argentina called Bit Argentina. They were importing all kind of Famicom games from Taiwan and sold them in South America.

In the early 90's, Bit Corp created a subsidiary in Argentina called Bit Argentina. They imported various games from Taiwan and sold them in South America.

In 1992, Nintendo entered Argentina thanks to H.Briones Argentina SA, which became the representative of this company. Looking at the huge wave of piracy in the form of the many famiclones, Nintendo got along with Bit and the company became an official distributor of Nintendo products in Argentina.<ref>Action Games n° 12, Argentina,1993</ref>
