This.

Also, even if it's just another a/v playback device that happens to have 20 old Neo-Geo games built-in, I'd still consider buying one.

Aaaaawwwwwww...hell yeah!! Such a fantastic yet ridiculous idea. Great selection of games there too.

As long as it isn't crazy expensive I'll be getting one of these, probably have to import; not sure the UK will ever get one.

"Whether or not it receives a worldwide release, you can bet your bootlegged copy of Art of Fighting that Jeff Gerstmann will import this thing and tell you all about it, because that's just the kind of thing Jeff Gerstmann does."

And we love him for it.

hate to say it, but it does look like a crummy pocket emulator you can get on think geek.

CYBER LIP.

#108 Posted by PandaShake (415 posts) -

It might as well have been the Neo Geo Phone

#109 Posted by billyhoush (1236 posts) -

I still have my Pocket Color. I will be buying this day 1 'cause I'm just crazy like that.

Am I in a dream world right now?

#115 Posted by amigocesar (20 posts) -

They need a new logo, but besides that, the design of the device is beautiful.

Man, this is the crazies. Games industry, you're weird.

I'll buy it as long as it's not crazy expensive.

#118 Posted by Shimmy (197 posts) -

So I guess a new WonderSwan is just around the corner then?

#119 Posted by aurahack (2491 posts) -

If this is reasonably priced, I will be all over this. Like... holy shit.

#120 Posted by MikkaQ (10296 posts) -

I'm pretty sure Jeff called it on this one. Probably one of those crappy Chinese emulator boxes, but you know... a little more legal this time.

#121 Posted by nintendoeats (6138 posts) -

I want this and I want it now. To sit on a shelf in a place of prominence and never be used.

#122 Posted by ArcLyte (911 posts) -

jeff is ready.

#123 Posted by The_LMFAO_Guy (211 posts) -
Mutation Nation is an fine beat em' up. I might get this if the price is reasonably one of these days.
#124 Posted by dk3691 (27 posts) -

Sounds groovy. Let's get some Card Fighters up in hurr.

#125 Posted by Atary77 (578 posts) -

Already sounds like a better deal than either the 3DS or PS Vita

#126 Posted by MeatSim (10994 posts) -

Well I didn't this one coming.

#127 Posted by RedFive (155 posts) -

I know it's probably fake. And even if it isn't fake, Jeff is probably right that it is some bootleg device with super shitty software and no support for more games via the SD card.

But, dammit, I WANT TO BELIEVE.

If this device somehow, magically, is real and is available for $99 or less, I'm in.

#128 Posted by zolloz89 (274 posts) -

oh shit. really? and i thought i was going to be able to somewhat save my money

@Rattle618: NO, THEY LIVE IN A BUNKER OF AWESOME.

#130 Posted by nERVEcenter (203 posts) -

Assuming the OS is relatively open, the potential for homebrew and indie content is fucking staggering. Imagine the awesome games we could get out of this.

#131 Posted by King9999 (663 posts) -

SNK vs. Capcom, now!

#132 Posted by vinsanityv22 (1066 posts) -

I'm with Jeff - I'm getting this thing. One of my greatest regrets as a gamer was never picking up a Neo Geo Pocket Color when that system was discontinued. There were so many at Electronics Boutique at the time - many in packages with 6 games. For, like, $40! I will not pass that kind of thing up again. I just hope this thing can play more games than the 20 that are built in. I would like it if it were capable of playing Pocket Color games in addition to Neo Geo home console titles.

#133 Posted by ddensel (417 posts) -

I. LOVE. THIS.

#134 Posted by Funzzo (951 posts) -

i want it so bad. give to me know. this will be a day one buy.

#135 Posted by BoG (5388 posts) -

I scanned that list maybe 1,000 times for The Last Blade. Where is it?

Anyways, I'm going to buy this one day one. I won't even buy the next Playstation on day one, but I will buy this one day one.

You had me at metal slug

#137 Posted by HydraHam (1380 posts) -

SD card slot? so it's basically a pocket emulator, which is great since 9 devices i own that can run these isn't enough.

NEED MOAR

@DeathbyYeti

who asked for this?

I didn't ask for this...
#139 Posted by Bigheart711 (1272 posts) -

Looks good. I'd like to try it.

#140 Posted by mizthang222 (3 posts) -

@fisher81: I don't see how that's relevant. I was born in 1992, and I know what one is. My dad owns a Neo-Geo Pocket, actually.

#141 Posted by ScreamingFist (374 posts) -

This looks fake

#142 Posted by Magicallystoopid (486 posts) -

If this thing had Shock Troopers on it, forget owning one, I'd make sweet love to it.

#143 Posted by probablytuna (4156 posts) -

Tell me this didn't just happen.

#144 Posted by lightsoda (553 posts) -

Can I get a Commodore Pocket? With like a gazillion games build in?

I could give a shit about a new Neo-Geo, but god is the writing on this site awesome!

#148 Posted by potaties (9 posts) -

No Garou: Mark of the Wolves! NO SALE!

The website that this blog belongs too sells cheapo unlicensed clone systems. I have my doubts that this thing is official.
