    What's the chances SNKP have their very own in-house ED-209 variant (complete with the... glitch) ready to deal out justice, to those who fail to comply?

    At least, in a fair and just world...

    Picture your worst nightmare and then cover it with Neo Geo and SNK stickers.......there you go.

    Wow, I just caught the news now, and well... a single tear falls down my cheek: happiness that the nightmare will finally end, or sadness that I'll never be able to sell this steamer to recoup some $$$, either way works for me!

    So sorry for your loss. At least you are not one of those that thinks they actually own a rare collectible now. Cut your losses and move on with your life my friend. The skies the limit now that you don't have to worry about shoddy build quality and horrible emulation. Oh, Oh...when's the next firmware update coming out? Can they fix the screen tearing by Christmas?.....Who cares? It's done. Fuck off Tommo.

    This shit is gonna be the next Ngage "collectible". If idiots actually think this crap is gonna be collectible they must have lost their mind. I could take a dump right now and it would be just as valuable as that crap NGX.

    This. Happy to have it. Even if it isn't that great. Expect its value to skyrocket on the secondary market. I might take a second arcade pad before it's too late.

    A shameful collector"s item is still a collector's item

    On a side note, good for SNK P to get back on tracks for that crappy thing.

    It's not very professional looking but it's Neo-Geo X so who the hell cares.

    Meaning if your NGX has a problem with it, you're fucked.
    ...console emulation has no soul...

    For anyone in Canada, Future Shop is clearing out the controller for $27.97. Not a bad price, especially since it works on Windows and Mac computers.

    http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/produ...6781529b75en02

    You'll want to act fast though, as SNKP's press release calls out that Tommo need to remove this product from retailers.

    Unfortunately buying a NGX is like herpes, once you get it you will have to live with the shame forever..

    Can't say I'm surprised at all. I think we all saw this coming a mile away.

    The US Facebook page has been updated to no longer allow posts by users. You can still comment on their posts though.

    Hmm. Interesting. I still like mine and will continue to play it. That being said, can't say Im surprised. Hijacking an emulator, leaving the device wide open, releases too far apart...

    I think mine is safe since I have replaced everything inside of it myself, firmware included.

    shoddy build quality, terrible emulation, screen tearing, bargain-bin cheap display, color bleeding, muted and poor quality sound, vertical scan lines, turbo, 16:9 aspect ratio, forcing you to buy their shitty games just to get a firmware update that most likely bricks your console, not having a portable charger for a portable system until 7 months after launch, the name "rocket cable".......
