So if I bought an aes, I could buy MVS games and use some sort of converter thing? How much cheaper are MVS games?

 

as a whole? 30-80% cheaper.

 

mvs also do bootlegs, and xxx-in-1 carts.

Ok thanks. So if I bought a super gun, what would be required to play MVS games? 

 

On the consolized MVS, have any of you bought this Ali express one:

Doesn't look like it does component out. Can't work out if it can use official neo Geo sticks either.

has PS2 and SNK joyports, and offers composhite, s-video, and DIN-8 which is probably "RGB over megadrive cable"

Quite enjoyed Thrash Rally,

 

I'm astounded at how light the console is.  Assumed it would weigh a ton.

 

Now to read this thread in its entirety to plan my next purchases.

 

 

May I recommend my own posts in this thread :)

Has anyone purchased/ used one of  the 161 in 1 Home Concole AES carts that are on the market?

 

(not the MVS version)

 

They are around £220 and seem good value (if they work?)

 

I already have an MVS convertor (£120), and the 161 MVS can be had for a shade over £50.

 

I can't be paying an extra £50 to not have do deal with a convertor, even if it's a FAR more elegant solution, if it means I can ALSO get MVS carts NOT on the 161...

 

or something

I bought mine direct and saved on postage

The arse has fallen out of the convertor market... those nice tidy mvs consoles on Ali-express has had an effect.

 

And be really fucking careful with convertors on the AES.... my graveyard of AES consoles is growing. And I'm sure the latest death was down to a badly seated convertor/MVS cart

Question: are there any genuinely good scrolling beat-'em-ups on Neo Geo from 1989 to around 1996?

 

I'm doing a video on the genre in that period and, honestly, I'm struggling to come up with any on the format, even with loads of comments on the first part of the video saying 'WHAT ABOUT NEO GEO?'
