    This is a fair point. Especially taking into consideration that they completely switched around the button layout on the unit and controller, it’s hard to deny that this was a toy aimed at newcomers and just functional desk-candy for longtime fans.

    I would get stoked about it every couple weeks. I'd look at pics or videos and see what the gamelist is...then I would SNAP THE FUCK OUT OF IT and realize I have all the games on my Neo SD and AES system. I shake my head for a second and let out a sigh of relief.

    Feeling the same here.

    Eventually some chinese clone will get it right with a proper micro-switched stick, 4:3 screen and just like the one posted before, able to run most of the famous arcade platforms like capcom CPS-1,2,3, Neo Geo, etc...

    Yeah, Ill stick to MVS too.
    Ive been wanting to build an Odroid console for portability reasons, and even a CRT MAME build for other arcades at some point but this NeoGeo Mini seems more like a cool collectible and nothing else.

    Nah, I have a Neo and I'd still want this if the stick and buttons were good and it had an internal battery. And I'd like a screen larger than a smartphone, but oh well.

We're planning to move back to the US around the end of this year (hopefully, if everyone's visas come through) and I don't want to be stuck with a Switch I can't buy any more digital games for. The other option is waiting until after the move to buy the system, but that goes against my instant gratification nature.
    Yep it's entirely possible. You can buy a Japanese Switch and then simply create a US eShop account on the console. The opposite is also possible, of course (i.e. Japanese account on US console).

    So anyone buying the International Version? I don't want this thing but at the same time I'm a sucker for Neo Stuff. Plus Amazon makes it so easy. Worst case scenario it stays sitting on my desk and I mess with it every once and awhile for shits and gigs.

    I have it on Pre-Order with two controllers.

    This is legit official shit. Not some licensed permission handheld ladyboy. You love the NEOGEO, just having the boxes in your pad and gazing upon them will give you the good time vibes. Once again, you will have something most pissant faggors won't even know what it is and once again the question will be asked...."what's neo-geo", hahaha you fucking idiots! - you can give them a taste of the greatest fucking system ever created by man. If you don't have friends then you can plug a little ass power brick to it giving it some charge while you're in bed and its on your belly and get some fucking Last Resort blaster action before bed. Fuck yeah!


    So you know what the fuck is up:

    Im definitely tempted, doesnt look like they ship to Canada though. Also adding the two controllers makes it a fairly expensive toy for what it is.

At less than $15 I wasnt too disappointed though; the guide is comparable to the older neogeo and neogeo cd mini guidebooks released back in the 90s.
    I too was a bit disappointed in the book, i thought it was going to have many pictures plus some artwork but 95 percent of it is just move lists

    I have no idea why I purchased the Neo Mini. Now it is sitting up there on the shelves, still sealed.

    You would have to also buy some kind of external power supply if you want to take it anywhere. Bafflingly, it has no battery.

    Why bother? He already knows what Neo Geo games are like. He just has to imagine them on a tiny screen, with shitty controls, and shitty emulation. Or on a large screen with ridiculously bad image quality, shitty controls, and shitty emulation.

    Word, just cancelled my pre-order. I rather just use that money towards the Switch Neo Games that I want and use that as my Portable Neo.

    Precisely, I have bought it because it is an official snk product. It's is meant to sit pretty on a shelf.

    BTW, the joypad is shit.

    Eh, I think it looks ok. I'm at least going to give it a shot, then let it take its rightful place in its box next to the rest of the mini reissue consoles.
