I still can't believe that this thing really exists.

I love me some neo geo games, but 200 is way to much. At about half the price I would consider it.

@DarthOrange:

You can add any Neo Geo game via emu.

@TechHits:

It is expensive, but I suppose it's in keeping with the brand. I'd like to get one, but I also want a Wii U this Xmas. If there's a limited run of these, I'll propbably fork out...

Things like this are a bit late and expensive.

I have had many handheld consoles and phones and stuff that have played neo geo perfectly for years now and alot of them are a lot cheaper than this.

If this came out a few years ago it would be great but i think its too late now.

I still might get one :)

I have to buy one of these...I can't believe it's actually coming out. I remember when this was first posted here on Giant Bomb, many people thought it was fake.

I'm completely indifferent to the product as a whole, but man, the way that guy is holding and playing it in the video looks incredibly uncomfortable to me.

Looks pretty slick actually. I might actually have to take a closer look at that.

Like how? They got an online shop or do they just let people download ROMs willy-nilly?

I wouldn't mind playing som KOF or Windjammers on it.

The device has a SD cart port for "media expansion". SNK would never officially condone using it to run ROM's, but they must know it's going to happen with this device.

@egg:

Because you can slot the handheld device into the "Neo Geo Station X" docking device that comes with it, as if it were a regular Neo Geo cart, then hook it all up to a HDTV and plug in two Neo Geo sticks (it comes with one stick).

@Wong_Fei_Hung: Really? I didn't know that, suddenly this thing just became a whole lot more awesome.

@TechHits:

Really : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Neo-Geo_X

It's great, well it's not that great, but it's great for fans. There are of course similar devices available for far cheaper, but as a package, being able to play on a HDTV with joysticks, I think it's a pretty sweet legacy item.

I can see Rot dancing with one now.

Well, I'm going to start saving my pennies. This is a dream come true. I might even sell my 360.

I'm certainly tempted to get this.

That looks awfully uncomfortable to hold, especially for any extended length of time. Real clicky buttons, but I actually kinda like that.

It's cool that this thing exists, but if I really wanted to play NEO-GEO games I'd probably find another way.

$200?

Uh.

Hmm.

#22 Posted by TechHits (1391 posts) -
