*Does the NEOGEO X Gold support original NEOGEO games cartridges?
No, there is no ability to load original AES cartridges on the Neo Geo X Gold System. The NEOGEO X Station can only house the NEOGEO X Handheld inside as a docking station.

*Do I need a NEOGEO X Game Card / Cartridge?
No, the twenty games are already pre-loaded onto the NEOGEO X Handheld, but NEOGEO X Game Cards will be available with extra gaming content. More info about this will be announced at a later date.

*How do I connect to my TV?
You can connect the NEOGEO X to your TV set via HDMI or A/V Out. For the true retro gaming experience we recommend using the AV cable provided.

*Is the video output high definition via HDMI?
The NEOGEO X outputs a 480p signal to the TV via HDMI. A HDMI cable is also included.

*Can I use my existing NEOGEO Controller?
No, but we have created a 1:1 all new NEOGEO X Arcade Stick. The experience is 100% the same.

*Is the NEOGEO X Gold 2 Player?
Yes it is. Additional NEOGEO X Arcade Sticks will be sold separately.

*How large is the screen on the NEOGEO X Handheld Console?
It is 4.3" diagonally measured.

*How long do the batteries last on the NEOGEO X Handheld?
A minimum of 3-4 hours on a full charge.

*Does the NEOGEO X have built in memory?
Yes is does, but the main method of game storage are the NEOGEO X Game Cards

*How do I charge the battery for the NEOGEO X?
The NEOGEO X must not be charged using a stand alone power supply or USB cable. ALWAYS connect the NEOGEO X to the Docking Station to charge it.

*Can I use the NEOGEO X on Aeroplanes or in Hospitals?
Yes, within the set guidelines of the relevant Airline or Hospital.

*How does the NEOGEO X Handheld dock with the NEOGEO X Station?
The NEOGEO X physically slots inside the NEOGEO X Docking Station.

*What is the plan on allowing customers to play additional NEOGEO games beyond the 20 included?
Please check this website for the latest information. The plan is to release other games that will be exclusive to the NEOGEO X format.

*Since the NEOGEO X Docking Station is able to connect to an HDTV, will there be any way to change the display settings on how the game looks on the TV? (such as aspect ratio and HD resolution?)
On the NEOGEO X Handheld, you can change the aspect ratio of the screen between 16:9 and 4:3. The games are in their original format and resolution, not High Definition. On HDMI-compatible TV's, the TV's themselves will usually have the option to switch between 16:9 mode and 4:3 mode.

This article has some nice info & close-ups of the console:
Here's a video of the portable system being played:

That makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. There are so many people out there who don't have any grasp on the concept of Hi-def. People see HD and automatically assume it makes it better, but it doesn't work like that. You could release the original Super Mario Bros in HD but unless you completely redesign the games visuals from scratch, it's going to look exactly the same. In some cases it even makes it look significantly worse because youre displaying big blocky pixels on a higher resolution than was ever intended.

You must have no idea what you're talking about. The Neo Geo was originally a non-HD console when it came out in 1990; why would a new version suddenly be HD? These were originally ARCADE games, running on tube monitors; HD TVs didn't even exist back then. Do some research before you post next time.

He's quoting from a website.

Also, almost every single console has the capability to produce RGB output. Unfortunatly, most didnt come with this type of output connector (but why would they in the 80s?). A quick google search will show you that many people have modded the output type of their old consoles.

This NeoGeo console is a new system. It has an HDMI output most likely for convenience and not for anything else. Will it look bad? Likely on a 50 inch tv. Are you buying this for state of the art graphics? Absolutely not.

I actually have a good grasp of the concept Hi-Def.
I already have the original AES console and it is hooked up to my Home Theater that does an excellent job in up-scaling the signal. So I basically don't need this.
Do I want it? yes.
Do I need it? no.

I thought upscaling to HD makes non-HD stuff look better?
