    The original NEOGEO home console was released in 1990 in Japan by SNK (now known as SNK Playmore). Its arcade-quality home software set it apart the competition; NEOGEO games were identical to arcade ones because the hardware was the same. Of course, all that came at a price: At $650 (over $1100 today), it was too expensive to be popular. Back in the day, if you could have afforded the equivalent to the NEOGEO X Offering (And let’s face it, very few could), everything offered in the $200 NEOGEO X Gold system would have set you back a whopping $6000! No wonder people call the NEOGEO the Bugatti brand of gaming!

    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 for a personal gaming experience you can take anywhere. 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, for a true arcade experience right at home.

    There is something about Retro Games that have a totally timeless appeal that is enjoyed by all. For those of us who grew up playing on the Atari or Sega Megadrive/Genesis, playing great old-school titles not only presents an unbeatable sense of nostalgia but also a greatway to pass time. Some argue that Retro Games were the best ever made… then along came SNK and the NEOGEO AES. They changed the face of gaming forever in every possible sense. It is amazing that even brand new gamers are becoming fans of the classic Retro Games from the 1990s, proving that these simple-but-addicting games have not been replicated, even with today’s more powerful technology.

    “Great game consoles don’t die; they’re just reborn in much more affordable and convenient packages. 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,” said Tommo CEO Jonathan Wan.
