Remember in January how everyone got a little excited about the official return of the Neo Geo brand, via a new handheld system called the NEOGEO X GOLD? Yeah, well, it might be time to get a little less excited.
Because the thing costs $200.
That's right. For a small handheld that plays a bunch of games that are 15-20 years old, you'll be paying almost as much as you would a modern system from the likes of Sony or Nintendo.
I mean, sure, it comes with a bunch of pre-installed games (see below), a rather fetching replica arcade joystick and a docking station (that doubles as a video out station), but still, $200? They're crazy.
Confirming specs first listed earlier this year, the NEOGEO X GOLD handheld itself will boast a 4.3" LCD screen, a headphone jack and an "expandable game card slot".
The pre-installed games on the handheld are:
3 COUNT BOUT
ART OF FIGHTING II
ALPHA MISSION II
BASEBALL STARS II
FATAL FURY SPECIAL
REAL BOUT - FATAL FURY SPECIAL
THE KING OF FIGHTERS '95
SAMURAI SHODOWN II
KING OF THE MONSTERS
WORLD HEROES PERFECT
It'll be out worldwide on December 6.
