Didn't want it when it first came out don't want it ever.
Sup PolluxTroy. The prices of the neo geo x have stayed high and have been on the rise for a good while now (especially after amazon finally ran out of their stock). Although not a great choice to play neo geo games these days, with current high resell prices for pretty much everything related to "retro gaming" (ughh! It hurts to type that.), many gamers appear to have come full circle anyway:
1st era: Playing games on consoles
2nd era: Emulating consoles and playing illegal roms on pc's (i.e. nesticle, genecyst, etc)
3rd era: Emulating old consoles and playing illegal roms on newer consoles (i.e. snes on dreamcast, xbox, etc)
4th era: Buying up old consoles and games to have an "authentic" experience compared to emulators (i.e. after stores like gamestop stops carrying older console games more retro game shops emerge)
5th era: Running emulators and roms on licensed devices that look like old consoles (i.e. Atari Flashback, Neo Geo X, NES Classic Edition, etc.)
6th era: Running illegal roms on original hardware (i.e. flashcarts)
Gamers will always find a way to play what they want despite current market offerings. The awesome part about the current era of gaming is that there is a choice for gamers to play any console however they choose to. Emulation vs OG Hardware argument aside, for many, the opportunity to be able to have their own perceived ideal gaming experience at a price they want is all that matters. I just hope that many who obtain these games are willing to stick around here to talk about them.
How much was it when it first came out? I don't even remember. I bought one, because I am helpless before such products, but I never opened it.
Hit up 8man for one. He bought 8 of them (seriously).
Think I might buy a junk one and throw a raspberry pi in it.
I remember following this site with that huge NGX thread about hacking it and messing with chopping up SD card adapters to read micro SD cards to play ROMs, but eventually things turned just sour, dark even to some level of hatred. Tommo didn't seem to care much other than to shove it out with firmware problems and HDMI off the deck was garbage, but they did get some firmware out once that fixed up little things and ignored others. I stopped paying attention then.
Did anyone ever really hack the crap out of it to fix all the emulation problems and the other core problems with the firmware related to the hardware itself? I was very interested in the thing early on until it was so badly dumped on I just ignored the thing. I know you can get those cards for like $50 or something on ebay which are rewired so you can slot a microsd with ROMS in it but other than that I don't know. I think just for portability sake, if someone fixed all the issues the company wouldn't it would be a decent little toy to have when you're on the go vs lugging a phone/tablet with a mini bluetooth controller around.
Games, Manga, Transformers (G1), Japanese Robots, and more... http://tanooki.byethost16.com/
Looking for the above stuff, Neo-Geo MVS, Dreamcast, and Gameboy(any) too.
If it's portability you're looking for, just hack a PSP.
Now playing: Martial Masters (PGM), Metal Slug 6 (AW), Fatal Fury 3 (MVS)
Who is actually creating demand for NGX?
Hit detection. it's all about hit detection.
I sold mine off years ago and was happy I recouped most of my money. Guess I should've held on to it a bit longer eh? Dumping this thing and getting an Omega was one of the best decisions I made.
I still have the SD adapter to run other games on the NGX tho. There was a group buy on here way back when for these. Anyone have any use for such a thing still?
It was garbage, now it's called Neo-Geo Switch and has conceptual precursor status. Just take the handheld out of the console and... etc. etc.
Never bought one, never will, no regrets. The screen on that thing was terrible apart from all the rest.
If this really is the darkest timeline, what must then be next are Neo Geo X bootlegs.
Their dedication to the unit has been pretty impressive to say the least.
Well people collect game.com and Atari Lynx so
The Lynx had hardware features like scaling and came out the same year as the Game Boy. It was pretty far from shit. Nintendo didn't have a portable that could handle stuff like Checkered Flag or Blue Lightning until the GBA in 2001.
