Look at your modern consoles, with their tera-floppy processing drives and tens of RAM! Bah, who needs graphics man! Real gamers play retro classics, not hyped up Triple A titles that cost the same amount of cash as a small Polynesian island! And fulfilling that urge, is the Neo Geo, a console from yesteryear, repackaged and arriving at a knockout price later this year!

And by knockout, we mean a straight right KO blow to your wallet. The Neo Geo X Gold handheld console launches in December this year, and packs several pre-installed games, a docking station that is also a video out station and an “expandable game card slot”, with an admittedly sexy fightstick.

The price for all this? $200, or around R1600 here. Don’t be too surprised if it retails closer to R2000, if it is ever imported. Here’s a list of the games included:

3 COUNT BOUT
LEAGUE BOWLING
ART OF FIGHTING II
MAGICIAN LORD
ALPHA MISSION II
METAL SLUG
BASEBALL STARS II
MUTATION NATION
CYBER LIP
NAM 1975
FATAL FURY
PUZZLED
FATAL FURY SPECIAL
REAL BOUT – FATAL FURY SPECIAL
THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’95
SAMURAI SHODOWN II
KING OF THE MONSTERS
SUPER SIDEKICKS
LAST RESORT
WORLD HEROES PERFECT

I’m not the only person who thinks that the Neo Geo has come full circle by once again releasing the same overpriced console again, am I?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
