From the Manufacturer

 

 

The NEOGEO X story:
In 1992, the NEOGEO AES (Advanced Entertainment System) console was released, ushering in a groundbreaking new home system that brought arcade-quality games to the home for the very first time. Now, The 20th Anniversary reboot of this Retro Gaming Classsic, The Limited Edition NEOGEO X Gold has a worldwide release date of December 2012.

If you're old enough to know what the NEOGEO was, then this news is for you! If you have never heard of the NEOGEO, then you are in for a treat!

So to celebrate the system's 20th anniversary, the NEOGEO X Gold comes pre-loaded with 20 of the most well-known titles from the console's history.

"Great game consoles don't die; they're just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages. The NEOGEO X GOLD is a love letter to one of my favorite consoles of all time, and working with SNK PLAYMORE to acquire the NEOGEO license, Tommo Inc. looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go," said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan.

The original NEOGEO home console was released in 1990 in Japan by SNK (now known as SNK Playmore). Its arcade-quality home software set it apart the competition; NEOGEO games were identical to arcade ones because the hardware was the same. Of course, all that came at a price: At $650 (over $1100 today), it was too expensive to be popular. Back in the day, if you could have afforded the equivelant to the NEOGEO X Offering (And let's face it, very few could), everything offered in the NEOGEO X Gold system would have set you back a whopping $6000! No wonder people call the NEOGEO the Bugatti brand of gaming!

There is something about Retro Games that have a totally timeless appeal that is enjoyed by all. For those of us who grew up playing on the Atari or Sega Megadrive/Genesis, playing great old-school titles not only presents an unbeatable sense of nostalgia but also a greatway to pass time. Some argue that Retro Games were the best ever made... then along came SNK and the NEOGEO AES. They changed the face of gaming forever in every possible sense. It is amazing that even brand new gamers are becoming fans of the classic Retro Games from the 1990s, proving that these simple-but-addicting games have not been replicated, even with today's more powerful technology.

 

LIMITED EDITION BONUS:
For a limited time, the PRE-ORDER ONLY NEOGEO X GOLD LIMITED EDITION will come with a free NINJA MASTER'S NEOGEO X Game Card while supplies last!

    4.0 out of 5 stars An Honest Review From An Avid 35 Year Old Gamer April 9, 2013
    Verified Purchase
    Lot's of mixed reviews about this interesting little piece of equipment. As a 35 year old collector and avid gamer (grew up in 80's arcades, I own every console on the market including Japanese imports), I felt like I could be a fairly good reviewer for those of you who are on the fence.

    For people new to Neo Geo:
    If you are looking for a decent/very inexpensive way to play classic Neo Geo games and have never experienced them on either a true "Big Red" Neo arcade cabinet or the 90's AES home system, you will enjoy yourself. The built in 20 (+1) games are a FINE selection of some of the heyday Neo Geo titles. You have a great mix of fighting games, shoot em ups, a handful of sports/hobby games and puzzles. The console gives you the option to run in full screen HDMI (even includes an HDMI cable) and running on a 42" Samsung LCD, the games look pretty good. For someone with no knowledge of the real arcade games, you will look at the games and think "they look old school" and probably won't notice the things that many of the negative reviews are complaining about (I'll get to that in a second). The music is still catchy and fun, the sprites are colorful and gaming still holds up some 20+ years later. The handheld's control stick is clicky, very much like the beloved Neo Geo Pocket system from a decade ago. The screen is decently bright, the buttons are responsive and the sound is suitable for a portable. Nothing earth shattering but for gaming on a train/bus, it's great. For the full console, the included arcade stick is a pretty good replica of the real thing. It's a little on the light side and the stick COULD be better but for the average Joe, it does the job and does it will.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Neo Geo X, in hand and played December 18, 2012
    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
    For those wanting a quick review: If you like the classic Neo Geo fighting games, shooters and others, this system includes 20 classics (+1 if you score Ninja Masters) in a hand held package. It really is just an emulator in a hand held video game system, but does a near perfect emulation of the classic system. You are limited to USA Neo Geo home console (AES) restrictions of 5 continues and no blood in most games, but the games are fun regardless of the stupid 90s censorship. RECOMMENDED for fans of "retro" game systems.

    For the longer review:

    Unboxing:

    Unboxing the Neo Geo X is pretty simple. The main display box contains two smaller white boxes of approximately the same size. Each one, in a very cool touch, has a Neo Geo logo sticker on it to indicate whether it has been opened or not. They could have put a simple piece of tape over the box, so this is a nice little flourish.

    The hand held console, the faux console docking station and instructions are in one box, while the power adapter, RCA cable, Neo Geo stick and, if you get the LE version, Ninja Masters SD card, are in the other. Also included with the instructions is an HDMI mini to HDMI cable. This is a nice touch, as most systems these days seem to want to let you fend for yourself when it comes to HDMI cables in the box.

    They are well packaged and nicely shielded from any possible damage.

    Hand Held:

    Powering on the system from power off to game selection screen takes 25-30 seconds total. Not horrible, but not instant on that some people might expect given other digital devices feel or are "instant on." The power switch is responsive and just a simple switch.

    Volume is controlled through button on the bottom of the device.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Flawed But still nice December 21, 2012
    Verified Purchase
    The system has quite many flaws ( Console : Joystick lagging, late response, bad HD Video out, picture is tearing on screen, sound problem with the Hdmi Cable ) For the Handheld its quite different : no lag, no tearing, but short batterie life and missing safe / sleep feature. Also the 16:9 screen seems quite useless as the Neogeo games are all 4:3 ( stretched to 16:9 doesnt look really good ).

    And the future is still unclear - are the rest / Other Neo Geo Titles coming ?

    If not - I think we are all hoping the emulation scene will find an give this system a better "Customfirmware" and some software beside NeoGeo only titles.

    Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
    As a owner of a real Neo-Geo AES for more than 20 years I can say that I wasn't very happy with the quality of this product.

    I was pretty caught up in the nostalgia of it.
    The logos, screen shots and design had me excited, but the poor audio / video emulation diminished that excitement pretty quickly.

    + PLUSES +:
    Great box art
    The joysticks can be used on a PC's USB input or on a PS3 system
    Price is cheaper than a "real" AES console

    - MINUSES -
    Poor video output via both HDMI and Composite output
    Poor screen quality on handheld. Not even as clear as a 2004 PSP screen.
    16:9 screen used when games should ALWAYS be displayed in native 4:3
    Poor audio quality. It's very scratchy and just sounds bad (due to poor emulation?). The stereo sound is also reversed!

    For someone who really wants to experience the Neo-Geo, but doesn't have the money to invest in a home system try better emulation.
    Neo-Geo Station on the PS3 (developed by the wizards at M2) is excellent, but only currently offers 16 different games.

    If you want to experience the Neo-Geo on actual hardware you do have a few options:

    A. Neo-Geo Advanced Entertainment System AKA AES (Collector's choice). Expect to pay around $200-$400 on a console w/ joystick (as of this writing).
    Games will generally cost more than their MVS or CD (see below) counterparts, but are also more collectable should you chose to keep them. They often come with a case, insert art, and a manual.

    B. Neo-Geo Multi Video System AKA MVS (Arcade version).
