    Will be trash I guarantee it.
    Its a shame because out of all these mini console relaunches the Neo Geo is the one that deserves the most amount of love and detail applied to it.

    I did like the NeoGeo X, but the emulation was just a version of FinalBurn Alpha running on a modified Dingoo A3something board. Firmware updates improved it, but it was never just right. Also the screen wasn't vibrant enough and 16x9?! There was a mapped button to reset to 4x3 which was better.

    Mine was an early one with the MicroSD card glued to the motherboard. :D Guess how hard that was to mod? ;)

    NeoGeo does need a good mini version really. Would be very happy if what they did was recreate the joystick properly *the NGX version needed some work to make it good, spring and button change mainly* and embed the hardware inside the stick and makes a second stick available for 2 player. You can get Joystick kits for the Pi which hold the Pi inside, so it's not a complicated thing really.

    A mini cabinet is possible. Although cool, would probably be too big for most people.

    its going to have to be good to convince people that their pi isn't good enough.

    Apparently has TV out as well. Depends on the screen quality (has a 3.5" screen in it ), audio quality,and most importantly.... price. It's SNK, so expect reasonably expensive.

    meh - why waste money on a tiny screen and a (likely) poor joystick.

    they should have made something with a decent joystick that only plugs into the tv.
    i'll be sticking to the pi then.

    I had a Neo Geo cart and Neo CD back in the early to mid 90s. Destroyed everything before the PS1 and even some games on PS1 couldnt compete with likes of Samurai Showdown.
    I remember going to London once and using the black memory card from Neo Cart and plugging it into Arcade machine and continuing from home on game Fatal Fury like a save game!!
    This was long before the PS1 was even around with its memory card. SNK were bigtime innovaters in the Arcades
