    Time for an AES

    Iíve had every other Neo Geo system in the past (including an MVS), but never would dare brave the storm of the uphill price battle for an AES.

    Well, thanks to Stone Age Gamer releasing their NeoSD, itís convinced me to buy an AES. Iíve actually already found a system and controller in great shape and for a great price, so Iím half way there. Iím just trying to save up for the NeoSD at this point.

    I had a consolized MVS as well, many years ago. But for whatever reason, I wasnít really into Neo Geo as much back then, and itís lack of play time soon found it on eBay. Since then, though, Iíve been rebuilding my gaming collection I once took for granted. And the AES just seems like the better way to go, now.

    Iím going to need some help from someone here replacing buttons (I donít solder, and Iím most certainly not going to try on this controller), but otherwise, Iím just here for the community. I was a member way back when I was in college (2003-2007), but I have no idea what my login info is anymore, so here I am again.

    It's an acquired taste. Like Crystal Pepsi. Most people think it sucks, but someone bought it....

    Oh you do? well only time here will tell

    I think you should honestly learn how to solder because it's quite fun and really not that hard. Maybe don't start on that controller of yours though...

    I'll hold my own, done it before, and now I'm 10 years wiser :P, or at the very least 10 years greyer.

    I was thinking about that, actually. However, I was thinking in the meantime (while I learn on less precious items) I could at least put in quick releases and connect the old wires to the new ones via crimping. Thoughts? Can't see it not working...

    However, the more pressing concern for me at this point is the NeoSD. Not sure if Stone Age Gamer is trying to use good salesman tactics on me, or if he's telling the truth, but he's making it seem like production of this thing will taper off soon. I'm desperately trying to raise the funds for the purchase.

    Stone Age Gamer doesn't make the NeoSD, Terraonion does, and the main TO guys are right here if you want to ask about the NeoSD. NeoSD (the user) has stated as long as people want to buy it (and other products) he will keep making them. I don't know if they plan to keep the old one in production when the Pro comes out though.

    I saw that post after I made my last post here. I didn't see a price, is it going to be a heck of a lot more? That's good to know, btw, that he won't just up and leave. Seen that happen so many times for accessories for all sorts of consoles over the years.

    Yeah, they plan to keep offering them alongside the Pro as the budget minded option.

    Crap they're tearing down the Palace of Auburn Hills. I guess it's I-75 & M-59 now.

    That makes sense but leaves me wondering how much more it will be.

    I know neosd hasn't announced the price yet.

    Side note, when I poorly used you as a reference, I didn't know it was spot on.
