Neo Geo coming back as a handheld gaming system


Don't know if anyone here ever played on a Neo Geo back in the 90's, but it was one of the most expensive gaming systems made back then. It was awesome in the sense that games were a lot like arcade games.

So, was excited to see this article on Yahoo today,

One of the priciest consoles in video game history is getting a reboot...and it's still kinda pricy.
Releasing December 6, the Neo Geo X Gold Entertainment System is a handheld that plays classic Neo Geo arcade games. In addition to the handheld itself (which boasts a 4.3-inch LCD screen), it comes packaged with a standard-sized joystick controller, a dock that connects the handheld to your TV, and 20 pre-loaded Neo Geo games.
And it can be yours for only $200. Wait, really? Doesn't that seem a little steep for a system that only plays games that are roughly two decades old? Maybe when you compare it to a new Nintendo 3DS (retail price: $170), but not when you compare it to the original Neo Geo home console.

Nice but I think the days of hand held gaming systems are long gone. Most games I play now work on my iPhone.
Handheld's these days have much better battery life and tons of more game content than phones. I do like Angry Birds and a few other games on my Android phone but they're nothing compared to games on the Playstation Vita like Gravity Rush.

Even on my PSP 3000, the game play and graphics are far better than anything I've played on any phone.
