The Neo Geo X Gold Entertainment System To Be Released Worldwide

Tommo, Inc., in partnership with SNK PLAYMORE, today confirmed that the NEOGEO X GOLD entertainment system is scheduled for a worldwide release on December 6, 2012 for a suggested retail price of $199.99 (USD). The NEOGEO X GOLD system doesn’t just come with the portable I’ve talked about before, oh no, this bad boy comes with the NEOGEO X Station, the NEOGEO X Handheld with 20 pre-loaded NEOGEO classics, and the NEOGEO X Joystick. In addition to coming pre-loaded with 20 NEOGEO classic titles, the NEOGEO X Handheld device features a crisp 4.3″ LCD display, an expandable game card slot, internal stereo speakers, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. The NEOGEO X Handheld device works with the NEOGEO X Joystick and NEOGEO X Station to charge the handheld device and transfer the action directly to a television set or monitor, via HDMI or A/V out.

The full list of NEOGEO X Handheld pre-installed games is as follows:

“Great game consoles don’t die; they’re just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages,” said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan. “The NEOGEO X GOLD is a love letter to one of my favorite consoles of all time, and working with SNK PLAYMORE to acquire the NEOGEO license, Tommo Inc. looks to provide gaming and entertainment enthusiasts with a classic arcade experience both at home and on the go.”

While I know a lot of people were hoping this portable would hit at $99 or around there, this bundle deal is much more compelling. For $200 not only do you get a really nice looking portable, but you also get a significantly cheaper way to experience true Neo Geo classics right on your big-screen HDTV. What more could you ask for? For anyone interested in this wicked offer, hit up NeoGeoX.com.

  1. So does the station also play original Neo Geo games too? It seems like a revised version of the system. If so, that is really cool and I will get one come December.

    1. Hopefully online retailers offer them because I’m interested in getting one. Never owned a Neo Geo before. I’m so happy to hear that there’s a way to connect to the TV!

  2. The way this works is as such, that unit acts as the charger for the portable system, so you plug it into that and then you can also plug that into the TV, and play just like you could the original system. This new system doesn’t play AES/MVS carts though, only the digital download offerings.

    That said, this is still a really attractive alternative.
