Are these any good, every time I see it I'm tempted.

EDIT - Meh, read some reviews, think I'll pass.

I'd read some reviews on Amazon. Biggest complaint seems to be screen tearing, lack of save states (even for high scores), and potential pricing on future games.

I'm gonna pass on this until the homebrew community comes up with an easy means of playing ROM's on it.

I'd read through the post-release posts on the Neo-Geo thread that's floating around this forum as well. I had one in-hand but returned it untouched.

Snk is really milking the cow here. I remember when they released the snk collection vol.1 for like all of the previous generation system and was hoping a vol.2 because the sequels of vol.1 games hold up better than the first game of their franchises. They never did released the vol.2 and instead I saw they released a jap only psp title vol.0 with all of their game previous to neogeo system.

Then they release the games ppl want individually on Xbox live. which all fine I guess but they priced the 5 bucks more than I care to. And finally, on ps3 they release another snk collection called neogeo station. Which is also first generation neogeo games on it but with online play. And that was awesome because I was hoping they would later go on to release all of their neogeo library on it with online play. But they abandon that too. We have yet to see new game for over 2 yrs now and they went to kof96 and metalslug2 and they stopped. And they release another collection with this crap.

What I'm really trying to say is, stop milking with your first gen games like super sidekick 1, shock troopers 1, art of fighting 1, fatal fury 1, samurai showdown 1, and start milking sequels of those games.

It's probably why they have all these "limited" editions still available for purchase.

Returned mine to Amazon after reading reviews. Issues: quality of docking station, screen tearing, lack of confirmed games at release (which they've now announced as being small random game volumes), and NO SAVES. What?

They really cut corners.

I love the NGX! Haven't had issues with screen tearing. Only complaint I basically have is that the viewing angles on the portable console isn't too good but I mainly play on the big screen. BTW, they should be announcing exactly what's in the software/firmware update v1.0 here soon.

This has been in my cart at Best Buy since it went on sale and I have $50 in rewards coupons too...but I can't seem to pull the trigger due because of the lack of unlimited credits. No save states I can live with, but keeping the 5 credit limit is ridiculous when it's just an emulator.

I was so hyped about this until i found out it's just emulation. Not really worth it for me since I am a game collector and prefer the real thing when it comes to games especially the NEO GEO.

Just an fyi, the order takes a couple of extra days to ship. I ordered one and chose 1 day prime for 4 bucks and it is still going to take 3 days to arrive...

I'd probably give this thing a go for $99, but I'm pretty hard up for Last Blade 2.

I also wanted to throw my two cents into the "review" comment earlier. You normally learn the most from low review scores as the people who rate something 5 stars seem to either rate a product within 5 minutes of purchase and/or so they don't feel like they threw their money in the toilet.

Regardless of what certain haters have said I believe this is a good deal at $149.99 with no tax or shipping from Amazon.

Not sure why my video review was removed but someone else video review stayed. I didn't argue. Just posted for people who are interested in it.

last blade 2 is a great game. i agree with you on the review observation also. That said $50 is a reasonable price for the NGX for the quality your getting. The stick is decent for PC though.

I would like to point out that there are many more positive reviews out there than there are negative ones.

If your curious about future game prices they are apparently going to be priced at $24.99 per volume from what Amazon has listed for the preorders for them.

I really love Neo Geo but can't pull the trigger even at $149.99. My Wii makes a great Neo Geo emulator since most games were released as a compilation or on Virtual Console. I just imported a Neo Geo Wii stick eons ago and just like that I had a Virtual Neo Geo.
