That console looks like a modded iphone - still IF it is real and you can add roms into it via the SD Card slot and it can handle games such as Blazing Star, KOF 98/99, Metal Slug X, 3,etc then it could potentially be pretty awesome. Although PSP does already do Neo pretty well anyway, it gets cool points for having the Neo logo on it.
Really? I was impressed while reading the list of games how few were already available on the recent Wii compilation. For an obscure, not very well regarded, game Magician Lord seems to get pulled out a lot, mind.
I'd have to look through the list again but I'm fairly sure that at least Nam-1975, Last Resort and League Bowling haven't been included in any previous Neo-Geo compilations.
is on SNK Arcade Classics Vol.1
. I know because I remember being horrendous at it! Nam 1975
might have been on SNK Arcade Classics 0
which was only released on the PSP in Japan.
I have to agree about the same games being re-released over and over though. After recently taking the plunge into PSN and digital games, I was disappointed that the Neo Geo Station stuff was almost identical to what's already been on compilations and the Virtual Console. The KOF
games for example rarely get re-released past '96
and all the big-hitters like The Last Blade
are always left out.
It seems to me that SNK launch these services, intending to release their back catalogue in order but then the services fail to generate enough interest and the releases always dry up before the meaty stuff arrives. Wash, rinse and repeat with the next method of digital re-releasing.
