    Nine months after the ESRB listed Neo Geo games for PS3 and PSP, publisher SNK Playmore has announced plans for a "Neo Geo Station" on PlayStation Network. Starting December 21, games from the Neo Geo's library will be released on PSN in both PS3 and PSP versions, costing $8.99 and $6.99 each, respectively. The pricing on the PS3 versions is equivalent to the cost of buying Neo Geo games on the Wii Virtual Console.

    Unlike the Virtual Console releases, these aren't just emulated versions of the originals. SNK has added features like online co-op and versus play on PS3 (and Ad-Hoc Party support on PSP), along with other unspecified enhancements. Check after the break for all ten games hitting PS3 on December 21, and the two PSP games arriving at the same time. The other eight are scheduled to arrive on PSP sometime in January.

    • Fatal Fury (also on PSP 12/21)
    • Alpha Mission II
    • The King of Fighters '94
    • Samurai Shodown
    • Baseball Stars Professional
    • Magician Lord
    • Metal Slug (also on PSP 12/21)
    • League Bowling
    • Super Sidekicks
    • Art of Fighting[/p]

    Magician Lord is awesome even after all these years, I still remember the first time playing it on the AES at a friend's house and was blown away, I will get that one for sure.

    It was very powerful for its time. Plus, they were essentially Arcade home consoles. The same games in the arcade were just slapped into a retail cart and sold. no conversion necessary. All in all it was a powerhouse that was way ahead of its time.
