NEOGEO X Gold now available in North America, Europe

by on Dec.18, 2012, under News

The Tommo/Blaze developed and SNK-approved NEOGEO X Gold Limited Edition handheld is now available for purchase in North America and Europe.

For $US199.99 or £175/€199, you get the NEOGEO X handheld, a HDMI enabled docking station, an arcade stick modelled on the original AES sticks, 20 preloaded games an a Ninja Masters game card.

The jury is still out on whether the system is a worthwhile investment, however.

    It looks better than I anticipated but I wouldn’t say it’s worth $200.

    There are countless Chinese handhelds that can successfully emulate the Neo Geo as well as dozens of other platforms that are far cheaper and offer additional features such as music/video playback, WiFi etc. They also allow you to freely run roms.

    I think people are just falling for the marketing ploy that it’s an official SNK device, which it is not.
