Neo Geo is making a comeback

Posted on Wednesday, August 15th 2012 at 12:58 a.m.

Interested in consoles from the 90s that retailed for $650 when they first launched?  Well you’re in luck because the Neo Geo is making a comeback to retail.  It will be sold as a portable system called the Neo Geo X Gold and it will attach to a console and come with a full sized controller .  You will be happy to know that the price will be much cheaper for the 20+ year old system and it will retail for $200, which is yes more expensive than a 3DS but not as expensive as the Neo Geo of old.

The system will also come with 20 pre-loaded titles (for the full list read on).  Windjammers (the best Neo Geo game ever) is not in the list and there is no word on whether or not more games will be available for the system.  SNK Playmore is involved so this system is legit.  Let’s see how well it sells $450 cheaper 20 years later…
