If it isn't that SNK should pretend this never happened and only come back when they successfully copy that gorgeous design.

If I *knew* that dumb little box didnít have a garbage joystick and buttons Iíd buy this in a second. I smell a rat though. Weíll see.

I am looking forword to this. Mostly because I think it would look great in my sons room.


Granted I am sure there will be models out there who will make the stick more authentic and higher quality.

'Tis cute but isn't what I'd want.  I've no interest in playing on a cramped tabletop cab, so it'd be a needlessly bulky (and pricier) console with only one controller port.  The game list ain't bad (only about half vs fighters), though I'd love to see some Nightmare in the Dark, Bomberman, Magical Drop, and Puzzle Bobble.

It's very close to what I would be looking for, but ultimately too small.

I guess it doesn't matter.  I finally pulled the trigger and ordered a consolized MVS yesterday with a 161 in 1 multi cart, with the plans to eventually upgrade that to a NeoSD in the future. 
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."

Is it really that little cab thing?  Does it have HDMI out?

Rumor has it yes but nothing official yet.  Rumors also state that it has HDMI.  I don't think I'll buy it myself but it's a neat curiosity.  And yeah, I'd also definitely bet that the controls aren't worth much.

I'm amazed they went Bar top instead of the AES because it be cheaper instead of the built in screen.

It looks ok. I'm not thrilled by that arcade stick. it looks clicky. I am interested if the price is right.

You know the original AES stick is clicky, right?

Speaking of clicky, I really hope the additional pads are as good as the CD pads were BITD.  If they are cheap imitation and don't have the same feel, that would be really disappointing.

I may screw around with the stick for a bit only while the system is hooked to the tv via HDMI.  However, I don't see a way I could comfortably play in handheld mode where my hand isn't blocking the screen.

Hehe...all arcade sticks are clicks, guy. Well, not Pac Man or Tron but every Neo stick ever sold from the MVS to AES to Neo CD and even Neo Geo Pocket and even the reviled Neo Geo X. All were microswitch.

SNK used to rule so much...

Okay, that's a much better list of games than I was expecting.  I'm very happy that there's no Fatal Fury 1 (or other first games that nobody in their right mind wants to play) on there.  Yeah, it's missing a few of my favorites but overall it's a solid list of games.

So I'm the only one who genuinely likes Fatal Fury 1?

It's not that bad... but you got to give people a discount since there's tons of better fighters on the NeoGeo.

I just now realized that there's no Crystalis :'( why doesn't SNK show some love for their pre Neo games. I would love to have some Victory Road or Guerrilla War arcade games on that.

Isnít that what the switch 40th anniversary compilation is all about?  He Jin MVS stuff.
