That "Neo Geo Portable Device" we were all cooing over? What? There was cooing. We cooed a little. Anyway, it's really happening! And it's happening soon! And worldwide. Blaze, who you might know from various Megadrive/Genesis handhelds, is producing the "NeoGeo X" handheld under SNK's license, shipping the device in Q2 with a pre-loaded selection of 20 Neo classics -- a couple of Fatal Furies, King of the Monsters, Metal Slug, and more.

Other features include an SD card slot (for additional games?), and AV out. There's no price for the "limited edition" console yet, but a Blaze rep says in the press release that the company hopes to spread excitement about the Neo Geo "in a more affordable manner, to a much wider audience." That sounds to us like it's going to be cheaper than the $649 SNK asked for the home console at launch.

What? Why would anyone want this? I'm sure every game in the catalog could fit on one DS/Vita card.

The console, 20 games, and a controller? Seems like a steal. Of course, I wish it was a much better list of Neo-Geo games, but eh.

I recall loving 'Nam 1975 and liking the baseball game in arcades in, I want to say in the late 1980s. I think I pondered getting the home console for some insane price (like $699 or something, and then $149 [!] for each game title), but common sense won out... for a change.  icon_razz

There was also some Ninja type game I liked, doesn't seem to be on the list.

For some reason, I'm getting the urge to buy one of these.   My rational side knows I'd play it for a few hours and it would go on a shelf.   My OCD tendancies are working overtime however to get me  to buy to one off amazon.

The NeoGeo X, the handheld NeoGeo platform, is no more. SNK Playmore, the owner of the NeoGeo hardware, terminated its license with manufacturer and distributor Tommo Inc. effective Oct. 2, according to this notice on SNK's web site.

That means the end of the NeoGeo X Gold Limited Edition, and six volumes of games (NeoGeo X Mega Pack Vol. 1, and NeoGeo X Classics Vols. 1 through 5) are done. Tommo has been ordered to immediately cease "all manufacturing, distribution, marketing & promotion and selling" of these products.

Additionally, SNK has ordered Tommo to immediately cease sales of the NeoGeo X Arcade Stick and remove all stock from retailers, both physical and online.

Much like the original Neo-Geo this thing could be come a collectors item and worth a ton down the road.

The problem is that it's an emulation machine. That's all it is. It's running some NeoGeo emulator on a device that's not designed for it. Also the screen size is completely wrong (it's 16x9 where the NeoGeo was only 4x3).

I wouldn't call it a collector's item at all. Especially when a modified PSP can play the exact same thing. Oh, and for free.
