This is proper weird. even searching aliexpress... they've been pulled!

 

or... FUCK!

 

They want $400 now

 

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/161-in-1-MVS-MV-1B-Console-with-HDMI-Converter/32853695920.html

 

1 x NEOGEO MVS Console

1 x HDMI Converter And HD-Video Upscaler

1 x NEOGEO SCART RGB Cable with Stereo Phone Jack

1 x HDMI Cable

1 x 12VDC Power Adapter

1 x 5VDC Power Adapter

1 x MVS 161in1 Game Cartridge

 

but it includes an HDMI external upscaler, and the 161-in-1 MVS cart...

 

 

 

That's mad... mine was £144 (plus shipping) and for the record that HDMI convertor is *OK* but it's not on the same level as an OSSC or FM.... I used to use one on my Youtube videos.

Certainly a mental rip-off price.

and you really need an MV1C, for the vertical slot*, that's another 50-60 squid.

 

add multibios, c. £30?

 

forego the case, and you can build a functioning MVS** for about £150

 

 

 

 

* other boards are horizonal cart slots

** board, supergun (and PSU), controller, 161-in-1 cart

I'm wondering if all these availability issues, changing prices and the case being sold on it's own (at a price equivalent to my full system) has something to do with the Neo Mini... SNK/Playmore laying the smack down maybe?

 

all the 120/138/161-in-one cart listings are still present, as are the MVS board listings.

 

but yeah, these were sold as "consoles" with the SNK/Playmore "neo geo" marque, so probably.

 

SNK USA has a business licence webpage:

anyone want to reach out and ask if theyve issued take-down notices?

 

or via the SNK Japan equivalent:

Im gutted they are not on the site / at that price any longer

 

it seems great value 

It’s bizarre... maybe after the initial batch they decided to increase the price for their new stock?

Mine was delayed pending more stock so I guess I’m lucky they didn’t just cancel my order....

I know Blue's Journey is the main platformer Neo Geo had, but it does make me wonder what the likes of Capcom, Konami or indeed SEGA games would look like on that system. Kind of turns me on thinking about such a universe.

Might have accidentally bought a Neo Pocket Color of eBay last night while sleep deprived, although it wasn't badly priced, boxed console and 11 games for £115 delivered :)
May have to get the AES set up in the office also, it's been a while since it was last dusted off and given some gaming time.

I've just been playing Shock Troopers for the first time. Absolute blast. I know I may bring the ire of the purists but It's on my little bartop. It's probably not emulating the games 100% but I have no knowledge of playing on proper hardware (although I had a Neo Geo CD back in 96 but all the games where fighters and my god the loading times) and it seems nice and responsive etc. It's got a hell of a lot of Neo games on there and would love someone to curate a couple of non fighters for me to play. The only other game from the Neo Geo I've played for any length on this is Metal Slug 2 and it was an epiphany with the proper Sanwa stick and buttons.

 

Need me some more awesome SNK stuff.

All boxed apart from Sonic :-

 

Biomotor Unitron

Metal Slug

Puzzle Bobble

Card Fighters clash (Both versions)

Samurai Showdown 2

Dark Arms

Crush Roller

Sonic The Hedgehog

Not sure which one to start with, and I'm hoping I still have Neo Turf masters in the drawer from when I had my last one :)

It's arrived... I forgot to charge any batteries, will be firing it up shortly though :)
Console is boxed and is in gorgeous condition, the original batteries are still in the box and still wrapped, so of course, I'll be leaving them where they are and using some rechargeables :)
