    It will come pre-loaded with 20 SNK classics:

    Samurai Shodown
    Sengoku

    Top Players Golf
    World Heroes

    There is also an SD card slot, as well as A/V out. No other details are known yet.

    It will be released in Q2 2012 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of SNK's legen -- wait for it -- dary NeoGeo AES home console.

    The Limited Edition NeoGeo X will be distributed by Tommo Inc. in North America, and Blaze throughout the Middle East, Europe and Australia. A distributor for Japan and the Far East will be announced shortly.

    I seen an article earlier on this, i remember how pricey the console and games were back in their heyday, so i wonder how much this will be selling for.

    That thing is beautiful. :)
    Let's hope its potential isn't wasted on closed source.

    Yes, hopefully it has other potential rather than just being a portable MVS/AES.

    God, I hope that's not true. That's a slick looking piece of kit and I'd love to get my hands on one (especially if it's got a micro switched stick like the NGP), but I'm not spending $750 on one.

    that price if true will kill it. I see a more moderate price point if they want sales. Price should be under $300USD or it will not sell.

    It's common knowledge that many past SNK manufactured consoles were very expensive.
    Unless SNK has not kept up with the times with cheaper cost efficient tech, I suspect this too is going to be expensive,

    Who the heck would buy it for that high?

    I was expecting maybe 100$ tops

    The potential price tag is bugging me a lot.. Too bad since the design is really great.
