The NeoGeo X Gold looks like slick piece of hardware. It’s a console, handheld. and has a replica NeoGeo arcade stick. Oh, and it’s suggested retail price is *gulp* $199.99. While it is pre-loaded with 20 games, for $200 users should be able to add games to the system somehow.
And it looks like you can. The Japanese announcement says the NeoGeo X Gold has 2GB of flash memory on board and supports a 1-8GB SD or MMC card. The initial NeoGeo X Gold shipment in Japan includes a Ninja Master game card. This promotion has not been announced for North America at this time.
The NeoGeo X has a 1GHz CPU clock, 128MB system memory, runs Linux, has a 4.3 inch LCD screen with 480×272 pixel resolution in a 16 : 9 aspect ratio. In Japan, the NeoGeo X Gold costs 19,990 yen ($254) and comes out on December 6.
