It's out for pre-order. Though looking at the game roster again.... There's not as much variety as I had wanted. I love Kof and Metal Slug but I don't want all of them here when we could've had Viewpoint, Twinkle Star Sprites, Neo Drift Out and Puzzle Bobble etc.

May buy one if it drops below £90 but as it is.... Gonna have to be a desperate Impulse buy.

Except you couldn't have. Well, not without it costing a whole lot more. None of those games were made by SNK.

SNK owns the ADK stuff, so leaving out Twinkle Star Sprites means they probably have future plans for that title.

It's in the Japanese version of the machine. They just didn't think it was worth including in the "International" edition.

I know they aren't made by SNK but that didn't stop Nintendo dealing with Capcom, Konami, SquareEnix and co for its classic mini consoles.
For this to cost as much as does is SNK's fault for the rodent sized screen that is 101% impractical. (For the games that you are trying to play.)

Think about how much money Nintendo has compared to SNK that releases only about 1-2 new games per year.

I agree that the whole Neo Geo mini system is impractical. That's why I don't care and won't buy one.

Well that I know too. But until I know what attempts were made and rebutted or if any at all... I'm still gonna ask.

Nintendo sells millions of their Classic line, this will probably sell a few thousand. That's why Nintendo can afford to pay for licenses and SNK can't.

Big fan of the Neo Geo, but i'm not that interested in playing the games on a small-screen. I like the look of the mini, and I hope it sells but it's just not for me.

Watched it earlier in the week and lost my last bit of interest in the mini. Also had the nes and snes minis sold off after a week of owning. Concluded if it isn't a quality home console port (on cart or disc) or isn't the original, it isn't for me.

Annoyingly entertaining guy that Ashens, with his grandparents old couch.

you can get them used here for about 10,000¥.. i’ll probably get one for my desk at work, which is what it seems best suited for.

Forget the Neo Geo Mini, I wish I had a Vectrex Mini.
