Is Nostalgia worth $450??

NEO GEO was huge in the 90s as the brand you'd see often at arcades. They did have a console but it never took off compared to Sega and Nintendo. You can take home this retro-looking arcade, but we're not sure if the memories are worth $450.

    As I understand it, some actual NeoGeo carts can still go for a hefty price. This just sounds like a lower cost way of skipping all that.

    Well $450 is probably a bit much even with the screen, keyboard and everything. It is a big thing. At least there is a good selection of games, unlike the capcom board one who only has a dozen games for a wopping £200-ripoff. Alternatively the Neogeo mini is certainly a cheaper alternative. Also you can get plenty of neogeo collections discs for console or pc too.

    450? ooofff! i paid 300€ for a real early '90s arcade cab featuring a 25" CRT in full working order past year, and i was conflicted about my nostalgia bias on the value of things. This product makes me feel WAY less guilt now

    for anyone actually wanting to play NeoGeo and not just buying something like this for interior decoration reasons I'd recommend Mister FPGA. few frames extra lag with software emulation might not sound like much but you will feel the difference when playing on hardware instead.

    Nice piece of nostagia, but not worth $450 because most people could build an emulation machine based on Raspberry Pi 4 for less than $250 (including arcade cabinet, arcade joystick, and monitor)

  • W Johnson
    W Johnson2 måneder siden

    Really great video (mad props to Anthony, one of my faves) and NEOGEO hit the market right when arcade based gaming bottomed out and kept going... which is too bad they had a lot of great games for the time (esp the Baseball games). Even with a hefty nostalgia factor, for the price point vs games vs hardware... I'd have to pass.

    SNK these days is nothing more than another cheap, crappy Chinese company selling more cheap, crappy Emulation machines, only this one acquired the rights to SNK & can thus slap the SNK name on stuff and charge more for it. Considering how obviously cheaply made this thing is, I can only imagine the profit margins they are making off this thing. I mean they're charging nearly $500 for it, for what is essentially nothing more than a cheap Android based Emulation box, LCD display and some plywood, and still couldn't be bothered to put decent buttons in the thing. This is the typical Chinese business model these days. They are getting STUPID rich off of us over in China, they really are.

    Anthony is the BEST GUY of the whole team so far. But this time I don’t understand him, no arguments but saying it’s not worth it.🤷‍♂️ And since when an arcade cabinet has clicking buttons?...🤦‍♂️ Anyway, one more guy who doesn’t know its subject and trash talks it because another guy did the same before him and so well, doing same is the easiest way to review... Disappointing Anthony. Or maybe is he too young for knowing the arcade area in past? A guy from 1980.

    I don't think you can have nostalgia for something that didn't exist or isn't true to the original. Further I'd say it's something you can't have if you didn't own the item at the time. This is just an unboxing. I clicked, liked, and stayed for Anthony though.
