Twenty years ago the NeoGeo was released by SNK.  Now you can once again relive those memories...or if you never had a NeoGeo because they were pretty pricey, you can create new memories as the NeoGeo X Gold Limited Edition system is now available, though it seems to be sold out on most of the online retailers they list on the official site.

The system comes with the NeoGeo X Handheld, the NeoGeo X Station which houses the handheld for charging and AV output, a NeoGeo X Arcade Stick, and twenty pre-loaded games, including classics such as Baseball Stars II, Fatal Fury, Magician Lord, and The King of Fighters '96.  All that for only $200.  That's a pretty good deal considering the original NeoGeo Gold system debuted at a whopping $650 or so.
