Looks pretty good, though I don't think I could be bothered shelling out the $600+ for it.

I'm afraid I don't agree, I don't like it. It looks like a block of wood, it lacks any real style. The original black version if much classier.

Shame as its an idea that can work, but this one is poorly designed.

That looks simply ghastly.

I know some people are into their Faux-Retro (Ret-faux?) but in my opinion that looks ugly as sin.

I may be way off base here but I reckon it's only for the tasteless with more money than sense. :?

It's fugly. It's too "new" to be wood. Wood should look worn and antiqued, not bright and clean. It actually looks like fake wood. A veneer.

I like the look but it's way too expensive.

Have wood trim by all means (2600 fans will tell you there's nowt wrong with that) but a console casing made entirely out of wood? It just looks weird, like a prop from a Flintstones movie.

Also, it's an MVS. The whole purpose, as alluded to in the ads, is to offer a cheap way into Neo Geo gaming for those that can't afford the insanely expensive AES games, so pricing it so high is crazy anyway. If you have $600 to spare you may as well buy an AES and a couple of games.

Also, it's racist.

That looks terrible!!

I've always wanted a Neo Geo (who hasn't? :D) but I wouldn't be keen to shell out for one of those

I'd have had one if it had been just a smidgeon cheaper.
