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.

Copy pasta:

Retro gaming specialist Blaze has told MCV its planned £500 price tag for the NeoGeo X is accurate, contrary to other reports circulating online.

Games news website Eurogamer posted a story suggesting the £500 price tag is innacurate. It also said a Blaze spokesperson confirmed this.

However, Blaze has told MCV that the £500 price is on the cards but the company is keeping an open mind to a potential price drop.

This £500 figure is based on a conversation MCV had with Blaze today (Thursday, March 15th). It is not based on a 'month-old forum post', which Eurogamer claimed.

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.

A spokesperson for Blaze has told Eurogamer that the £500 price tag suggested in MCV's story is incorrect.

"It's not £500," they confirmed. Apparently MCV's figure was based on a month's old forum post from a community member declaring what he'd be willing to pay for the device.

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,
