If you thought we were done with new consoles in 2012 then you would be wrong! A new video game console was released last week that I’m sure many of you have fond memories of with its precursor.

Old news, I'd own one if it wasn't so expensive out the box.

The price is just the first of this system's many problems. Even for collectors/enthusiasts this is a tough sell.

Let me exemplify with the opinion of a long time Neo Geo fan, someone who really knows the system from inside and outside (literally - he's the one who repaired the Neo Geo arcade board for Classic Game Room's Youtube channel):

I saw the video, it reminds me of the NES and the updated top loader version and the quality difference. After watching this I'd get one if it was under $30 - if that.

Knows his Neo hardware but I had to inform him there are a few with strange audio/video issues. Mine is a 337 model and apparently there are other units with a different firmware such as 350 and 370.

Lukes complaints are not and should not be taken as the rule of thumb for everyone. The unit is not junk. It isn't for everyone but its too easy for someone who is having issues should take it up with the company to get one that works properly instead of resorting to calling it junk.

There is potential in the hardware. It seems it is more capable than led to believe. The hacking community will have this thing cracked to run other emus or apps. Its no psvita but then again....it isn't trying to be.

can already play most of the games on psp/vita/ps3 so whats the point unless you are a collector?

WildArmed1371d ago

Exactly, you can emulate the games on a 90$ PSP, why on earth would you go for a 200$ handheld?

TXIDarkAvenger1370d ago

The same reason I can emulate a majority of games on PC but choose to buy the system the game was made for.

Flandy1371d ago

Didn't this release like in early December?

Everyone knew this was coming out.

admiralvic1371d ago

Agreed.

The only reason this might be news to some, is the simple fact that there isn't a lot to say about it. Sure it's cool, but the price vastly outweighs any of that. Additionally, I've yet to hear news of more titles coming, nor has there really been any news past the preorder bonus, so it's not shocking to be in the dark.

Either or, down voted for the deceptive title... since I rather not see a new article every time a flash back or Chinese console releases.
