Hope Sega comes back with a new console and Shenmue 3 and the circle is complete!

this would be sweet to add to my collection
the original neogeo pocket was such an under rated little handheld. It was the first to offer handheld to console connectivity. Or so I think.....

Bring it on!

Seems like it's just a retro handheld. Nothing special.

Also, Once the Vita does get hacked, it'll be able to play all of those NeoGeo games anyway, along with N64, GBC, GBA, PSP & maybe PS2 games also.. :)

@ below: That's right.. but only the Vita's PSP emulator was exploited.. the Vita system itself is still very much secure though at this juncture.

Vita was already hacked and people are running emulators and stuff on it.
LightofDarkness  +   1281d ago
They are, I've seen PicoDrive (Genesis) running on it and Doom so far. I don't know why you got a disagree for stating a fact.

The vita wasn't hacked, the psp emulator within the vita was hacked because Sony left the exploits that were present in the psp in the emulator.
LightofDarkness  +   1281d ago
Do you even know what "hacks" are in these cases? You do realise that the PSP emulator is a PART of the Vita, right? That's like saying "The PSP wasn't hacked, the bootloader was!"

Regardless of which way you look at it, they are playing emulators on their PS Vita, not their PSP. They found a backdoor exploit, which is what nearly all hacks are with regards to consoles. They are utilising the machine to carry out functions that it was not intended to carry out. Das ist ein hack.

No, they haven't blown the whole thing wide open, but they've found a way in and utilised it. That's all it takes.

Furthermore, get over it. It's not an attack on your beloved console if somebody tells you it's been hacked. You can plug your ears and shout "la la la" all you want or come up with all sorts of excuses for yourself, but what's the point? You're not going to change the fact.

God damn people are sensitive about this stuff.

You were just waiting for someone to reply to you so you could say that weren't you? lol. You sound a little mad yourself. Take a breath and chill. You sound like the sensitive one here.

just look at the games. I think this is just an updated version of the old one from the 90's like the DS to DS Lite.

Is it safe to say that NEO-GEO will be back as a videogame console manufacturer again??.
Nelly_Nel_713  +   1281d ago
All we need is sega to come back and we will have a nice little handhelds war...
Ramas  +   1281d ago
hm strange, it is not April 1 today is it? still hard to believe
Alos88  +   1281d ago
I guess they thought they weren't losing enough money.
Frankfurt  +   1280d ago
Look at the pre-loaded game list. This will be just for old neo-geo games. For 99 or less, this would be a good deal (as long as you could download any neo-geo game you wanted for a pop).
