NeoGeo X Gold Gets UK Release Date and Pricing

By - Source: Engadget | B 11 comments

It won't be quite as cheap, but Europeans will get the console the same day as those in the U.S.

This past summer, Tommo revealed that it finally had a release date for the NeoGeo X. The company said that the handheld would arrive in the United States in time for the holidays, but didn't mention anything about a European release. Today, it emerged that Europeans will get the console on the same day as our friends across the pond.

 

Engadget writes that the NeoGeo X handheld gaming console will launch in Europe on December 6. Pricing for the device is set at €199 or £175 for those living in the United Kingdom.

"Great game consoles don't die; they're just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages," Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan said in August. "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 Neo Geo license, Tommo Inc. looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go."

The console boasts a 4.3-inch LCD display, an expandable game card slot, internal stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. it's compatible with the NeoGeo X Joystick, and the NeoGeo X station for charging and playing via TV or external monitor (HDMI/AV out). 

Those buying the NeoGeo X Gold will get 20 pre-loaded classic NeoGeo games. Those purchasing will get the Ninja Master's game card, the NeoGeo X Station, NeoGeo X Handheld, and One NeoGeo X Arcade Stick.

    Well, the price wasn't unexpected, usually most gadgets get a conversion rate of 1$=1€.

    In any case, an extra game (21 in total), the docking station and the stick on top of the basic system is not a bad deal at all.

    Most gamers I know of likes them too, don't think it's a stereotype comment, just common sense.

    I see no one mentioned the PSP. There are homebrew emulators for NES, SNES, GB, GB Color, GB Advance, Nintendo 64, MAME, etc. And yes, there's TV out support, if you really want it (personally I don't see why; it's a PlayStation PORTABLE).

    As a kid I always wanted a Neo Geo for the at-home arcade experience but the games and console itself were ridiculously overpriced. Now as an adult - I. Must. Get. This.

    ok, most of those games, if not all, are great.... but, come on! where's my Mark of the Wolves? i need me a portable BUSTAH WOLF-ing. at least make it so i can buy and download it separately from their site or something.



    i'd still grab it though.
