If it looks cheap, It's junk. If It looks like crap, don't buy.

just another piece of plastic not worth buying. To little to late biotches. There are already a few hand held consoles that can play these games perfect;y with emulaters. I've been playing these games for years on my pc with Emulaters. I've also been playing these games on my 'Psp Handheld' for years with modifications and Emulaters. Why must these companies flood the market with garbage? I'll tell you why... they want your money and they don't car what kind of crap they put out to get it. This ugly piece of crap shown in this article is just one fine example of that.

Theres only one way to stop companies from selling us junk... don't buy this sh*t and let them know where they can shove it.


It will have little chances of selling since it will play games that most every other hardware can emulate in perfection. Now, if it had its own new titles, that would be another story.

What a shit argument. The

What a shit argument.

The people who made neo-geo are long gone.

Someone owns the IP rights, they want to make a quick buck.

People like you will buy them "because it must be good".

A complete and utter bellend.


Noted and fyi my first game was black and white. What I was talking about was not a comparison of generations. But laying out the difference between 2d and 3d as for your question I would say sales! Regardless what generation we talk about.

nice try

but 2d games have better gameplay. you seem to discount the huge retro gaming market too. Have you any idea how much money it grosses? I guess not


No! Please provide us a link documenting pie charts and bar graphs detailing the sales of 2D to 3D. I doubt they make billions from last generation titles today. If you think otherwise then I suppose we can leave out mmo's except WOW being the exception for a poorly designed breast fed child's wet dream come true.


Two dimensional games that all relatively played the same or similar, that was the only reason for their popularity. Allot has changed over the decade, especially how games work. I doubt Neo Geo could stand the test of time, given how deep the murky waters really are. Unless you cant wait you could just as easily pick up a phone and run a neo geo emulator.


im sorry. but i have played the games on Emulator, even on PSP if i want it as handheld. therefore why the neogeo handheld? better save the money to buy something else, if u r dying for these games, use emulator on ur psp.


It takes some skill to use sarcasm over the internet, those who fail need to say "i was being sarcastic" afterwards. Onto the topic, we have emulators for TI and HP calculators and I can't say they have any good games. Emulators are made by computer scientists/CS students to learn about emulation, not by monkeys who cant wait to start pirating games they can't afford/won't buy.
