Posted by: Sean Colleli at 6/27/2013 2:24 AM
I consider myself a moderately serious retrogamer and while I never owned the Neo Geo, I can appreciate the special place it holds for many nostalgic gamers. SNK Playmore is making the infamously expensive console and its even pricier library available again through the Neo Geo X handheld console. They just released Neo Geo X Mega Pack: Volume 1, which compiles all 15 titles previously released in volumes 1-5 of the Neo Geo Classics series. The Mega Pack comes in a collector's case with bonus stickers and a high speed charging cable. It will also include the latest firmware update for the handheld to address various performance and stability issues. Hit the jump for pictures of the collection and more details.
