From Neo-Geo
Jump to navigation Jump to search

English Neo Geo carts that have the Neo Geo logo have stripes that go above the logo on the spine and to the right of the logo on the front cover. There was an idea by SNK to make the color of the stripe representative of the game’s genre: Red for fighting games, blue for shooters, and green for sports titles; but SNK never kept this uniform, and on many release simply reverted to the red stripes. Thus, nearly all official SNK produced carts were made with red stripes. There have been attempts to “correct” inserts to match SNK’s attempts by independent collectors and producers, but these are not authentic SNK creations. There was never an official orange stripe.
