Neo Geo X Portable Dropped by SNK Order


Tommo’s Neo Geo X portable “console,” with featured game cards and carrying cases mimicking original Neo Geo hardware, will cease production immediately by SNK’s request.

Neo Geo X was a $200 portable which emulated (some would say poorly) Neo Geo titles, in addition to offering extra cards with more games on them. The unit could attach to a TV and use a replica joystick from SNK’s hardware days. The system found itself at GameStop and online via Amazon (and others).

The order to cease all production is dated October 2nd. No reasons are stated for the licensing agreement fallout, although SNK’s terse wording would lend credence to the idea of this being a rather ugly split between sides.
