SNK Is Doing It Wrong With the NeoGeo X Handheld

If you take a look at the system, you’ll see that SNK is trying to go for the contemporary system design with this new unit, with an analog stick and a sleek build that resembles the PSP in a way, but square rather than round on the sides. It’s not bad, and really shows the kind of quality they’re putting into the system.

That said, I can’t help but think it’s doomed to failure. SNK may have some ambitious ideas here, but they’re a little too ambitious, and as a result, the system’s appeal seems rather limited. Let’s look at the mistakes.

Why the heck is this damn thing so expensive?!

it is more for the nostalgic collector than the dedicated gamer. I would likely buy one at some point once the price has gone down (if at all).

sometimes, things that are so obscure never get a price cut because they arent as widely available. Regardless of the specs it is something a diehard collector would get.

I loved the Neo Geo Pocket but this thing isn't convincing me.

it looks to be for the serious collector of the obscure than the practical gamer. I already have all of those games on my neogeo cd. I dont play them because i also have them on the neogeo collection compilation for the psp which is more convenient.

Still...there is something about this unit that interests me.

I'm a huge NeoGeo fan, but even for a collector this price is insane when compared to a Vita.

tarbis3034d ago

Me too. For that asking price. Could they at least put their latest games in it? KOF XIII as a featured game.
This is just for nostalgia's sake. This should be $99 or lower.

This system appeals to retro gamers. I'm definitely picking this up for sure If the price drops
