Well That Was Quick: The New Neo Geo Has Been Hacked [UPDATE: Video Removed]

The hacking of a portable system is often bad news for game developers working on the platform, but somehow I don't think that's going to be the case for the Neo Geo X.


The $200 new SNK handheld—yes, you read that right—was only just released, and already enterprising hackers have had their way with the thing. That's according to this video, at least, which seems to show that the system has been tricked into loading one game in place of another.

That's reportedly because at present, you have to rename an unauthorized ROM to trick the Neo Geo X into thinking it's loading something that it's actually supposed to load. How dastardly!

Tommo can't be too upset about this—at least it gives people another reason to buy it, right?

UPDATE: Welp, it appears Tommo might have actually been somewhat upset—the video has been pulled.



Well.... now it might actually be worth the rediculous price tag.
