ME! As far as I can tell it's basically got a slew of identikit Streetfighter type games & the over-rated Metal Slug series and the games are over a hundred quid each.

I think I'll pass on that spoilt rich-kids toy thanks all the same.

Buy an old battered MVS and build a custom box for it maybe? Personally I'd like it mounted into a nice big flatpanel TV the way the Zotac mini PC's can be.

Swish.

With a company name of "Analogue Interactive," I'm confused as to what is analog about a digital game console that uses digital controls :lol: :P

Premium wood is the ideal choice for a Consolized MVS
I'll agree to disagree there - looks like sh!te to me and sooner or later that wood will get dinged/scraped/chipped as well...

I have 22 AES games which cost an average of under £30 each, and only 4 of them are one-on-one fighting games. Next time you're at an event that I bring it to, allow me to introduce you to the other side of AES gaming with titles like Dunk Dream, Ghost Pilots and Miracle Adventure... ;)

Splendid, I shall look forward to it.

I've never played any of those. The only Neo Geo game that I've played that I actually like was Windjammers. I think there was a shoot em up that was fun too, it's name escapes me.

Good thing systems like the MVS don't kick out much heat. Anything that puts out much heat would fry in a material like that without huge ventilation holes.

I don't like the look either. As said it looks like...a block of wood.

As witch said,games can be got cheap.Jap ones in particular.Still playable despite the language barrier in some cases.Oh and check out the saturn ports if you have saturn to spare.They were great too.

Yikes, think I'll stick with Kawaks for my fix, too ugly and too dear.

I seem destined that the only Neo Geo I will ever own will be my Pocket Color.
