Rumour: SNK releasing a new Neo Geo for your pocket

Don't call it the Neo Geo Pocket 2

 

It's not really a followup to the Neo Geo Pocket, but it is a portable device with a bunch of Neo Geo games on it. Currently known only as "Neo Geo Portable Device" (not the product's final name), the handheld is a bit bigger than an iPhone and comes packing two gigs of storage, plenty of buttons, a 4.3 inch screen, SD card slot, headphone jack and an A/V out jack, according to Japanese site Famicom Plaza.

 

And, thanks to official SNK licensing, it comes pre-loaded with 20 Neo Geo titles — North American versions, no less — including classics like Metal Slug, Fatal Fury Special, Sengoku, King of the Monsters, Magician Lord and more. Famicom Plaza provided no details as to when or where the device will be released.

 

That's assuming the product is real at all, of course. The select button above is labeled "menu" in a different picture, for example, which seems a bit odd. We've contacted SNK to confirm the device's existence.

  1. I usually do not leave a leave a response, however after reading a few of the responses on Rumour: SNK releasing a new Neo Geo for your pocket | Games | Technically Motivated. I actually do have 2 questions for you if you don’t mind. Could it be just me or does it look like like some of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead folks? 😛 And, if you are writing on other places, I’d like to keep up with anything fresh you have to post. Would you make a list of every one of all your social networking sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

    • Although I’m pretty sure this comment was posted by a Spambot – despite the various measures Technically Motivated has in place to combat automated spam – it raises valid questions so I’ll answer them anyway.

      I think “brain-dead folks” is being a tad harsh; but I do agree that some comments on the blog are not as constructive as others. However, Technically Motivated is a public forum designed to bring together all types of people and help them understand and keep up with technology; so there will be people who may not have as much to say about one matter as another. As long as the comments are still relevant to the topic, however; or they help keep the friendly atmosphere going, they’re still openly welcomed. Personally I would like to see more opinions stated or questions asked, though…
