Diehard GameFAN: Unboxing: The Neo*Geo X Gold Limited Edition

DHGF: After a little delay, Tommo and SNK finally released the Neo*Geo X to North American shores. This system, which can be both a portable gaming device as well as a home console, has a hefty price tag of two hundred dollars, but for those that grew up with the Neo*Geo and remember paying that much (or more!) for AES carts, this was practically a bargain, especially when you consider that it comes with twenty games packed in (twenty-one for the gold limited edition). For gamers that didn’t grow up with a Neo*Geo in their household, paying two hundred dollars for a system that only plays twenty year old games probably seems ludicrous. Personally, I fell somewhere in the middle. I love my old AES and have fifty or so carts for it, so two hundred dollars for a portable system that plays the games perfectly instead of being shoddy ports held real interest for me. At the same time, you can buy a lot of old Neo*Geo games as digital titles for systems like the Nintendo Wii, Sony PS3 and Xbox 360, and you can pick and choose the games you get. That made the Neo*Geo X a hard sell. I eventually ended up getting it, thanks to a massive trade-in bonus from Gamestop (all those Wii U launch games + 50% bonus credit), as I could get the system for free. Add in the fact some of the games on the Neo*Geo X have never been released as digital downloads for other systems this generation, and it was hard to say no. On December 20th, the system finally came in, and now it’s time to show you what you will get if you picked one of these up. Of course, the Neo*Geo X Gold is sold out most everywhere, so if you like what you see, cross your fingers that you won’t have to hit up Ebay or some other reseller for one of these.

Didn't realise you can dock and then play on the TV. Pretty cool.
