    Mid 90s Neo "Star" Unreleased Console - Info

    Came across this short documentary on YT today. What else do we know about this console? Looks like it would have been a beast! Anyone else hear of this?

    If the Neo Geo didn't send SNK bankrupt then this surely would have!

    The leftovers of this project supposedly went into the HNG64. We all know how that worked out ...

    Strange, there were already (at least two) threads about it:

    No worries, it wasn't my intention to lecture anyone on anything. This was meant as a little tribute to xsq, the member who, among other things, was renowned for his funny "SEARCH FUNCTION" indoctrinations ;).

    It's a monument to 90's electronics design gone amok. It's a thing of beauty; not a turd.

    If you're a fan of Sega CD, or one of those people who thought it would be logical for the Neo Geo CD to be an add-on for the AES when you first heard of it, then this thing is a hardware lover's dream come true.
