NeoGeo X Gold Is A Handheld And A Console (And It’s $200)

    0

    neogeoSNK Playmore is kind of making a new console. They licensed the Neo Geo name and some software to Tommo who will distribute the NeoGeo X Gold in North America.

     

    The hardware is neat since the NeoGeo X Gold doubles as a console and a handheld. Plug it into the docking station and you can use a NeoGeo X joystick, which looks just like the classic NeoGeo stick.

     

    The bad news is the NeoGeo X Gold costs $199.99. Yeah, it’s pre-loaded with 20 NeoGeo titles, but the list is missing many classics. Here’s what you get with the Neo Geo X Gold:

     

    3 COUNT BOUT

    LEAGUE BOWLING

    ART OF FIGHTING II

    MAGICIAN LORD

    ALPHA MISSION II

    METAL SLUG

    BASEBALL STARS II

    MUTATION NATION

    CYBER LIP

    NAM 1975

    SAMURAI SHODOWN II

    KING OF THE MONSTERS

    The NeoGeo X Gold also has an expandable game slot, but it isn’t clear how you can add extra games to the system. "Great game consoles don’t die; they’re just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages," said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan. The NeoGeo X Gold comes out on December 6.
