Neo Geo X Gold
Today I was looking on Yahoo’s game blogs and saw that they were re-making the Neo Geo. Now to some people, this might just seem like a scheme to make more money, or a bad idea- Heck, it’s possibly both!
However, I bought the Neo Geo Pocket Color sometime ago, and I loved it! I thought it was great. Then again, I bought it for 20-30 dollars over the original price of 70, which back in 1999 I’m assuming was a lot. So this is just my thoughts on this console.
Now, for those of you who aren’t aware of this console yet, these are the facts.
“It is a handheld with a 4.3 inch LCD screen, it has an analog stick and four buttons. It also had a standard joystick controller and a dock to connect it to the TV, and it comes pre-loaded with 20 games, and it is about $200. The games are as listed:
3 Count Bout
Art of Fighting II
Alpha Mission II
Baseball Stars II
Fatal Fury Special
The King of Fighters ’95
King of the Monsters
Real Bout – Fatal Fury Special
Samurai Shodown II
World Heroes Perfect”
Now, I’m not sure if everyone is complaining about this, or just Yahoo, but they’re talking about it being a rip-off and not worth it.
I personally think it’s a pretty good deal.
If you’re wondering why: think about it. You are getting a new console, which for handhelds range in between 170-250 dollars. You are getting 20 games, that come with it for FREE. Also, it can connect to the TV!
I understand that all of these games are ‘old’, but when the 3DS came out it was $250 and had a TON of remakes on it. To make up for the price they gave the people who payed $250 20 free games that were both already on the NES and GBA.
I think this is a brilliant idea for people who wanted a Neo Geo when it first came out, and I plan on getting it.
