We should already have NGPC games on the 3DS' virtual console. We should have had a NGPC collection on the DS. But, no, that would require SNK do something other than whoring out the same selection of "classic" NeoGeo games over and over.
I would instant buy 4 3DS if they show that Gal Fights and Card Fighters would come to 3DS' virtual console

I'm not sure why but this doesn't sound too expensive considering all the stuff you get...
the real question is about future games... are they going to release updates? or is there a store.

I don't think I would be able to handle ngpc titles on the ds. That stick would make me rage. On the 3ds however? Yes. Motm would be mine again.

But does the $199 include the dock and joystick? If so and if you could connect the stick to pc AND it features great build and emulation quality, that might just justify the price. Any less would of course be expected by blaze from what I've read:/

Based on what the PR says, yes.
I wonder how many copies they will produce for this...I want it but at the same time I don't want to cough 200 bucks and then watch this go down to half its price in a few months.

Cool that it includes the dock and stick. But... I just cannot see this being all that popular even among Neo-Geo enthusiasts who more than likely have a zillion of these games already and plenty of other ways to play them.

So much hype for a $200 render... I'll wait and see how the final product is. Either way, I sure-as-hell am not buying this at anywhere near $200.

I don't think that 200 is too much for a handled + 20 games + charge dock + arcade stick...

I hope that next revision of psvita will have tv out and gamepad compability too.

I don't think the price is bad at all if it can really run all NeoGeo games as well as the original. It would cost you more to get a PS2 or Wii with a stick and those games on VC or disks and you couldn't even get all of them and they wouldn't be portable.

As much as 'd love so see SvC:MotM re-released on a console with more visibility, SNKP would probably need to work out some licensing deal with Capcom to distribute something with their IPs in it outside of the hardware it was originally released on.
I'd pay good money for that, as it's still the best crossover between both companies, but many people wouldn't be able to look past the small color count to make it profitable.

As much as I love SNK's stuff and am willing to throw money at them, I still want to know if it'll be possible to add more games to this - most of them I already have from older compilations on the PS2, and I draw the line at buying the same game(s) twice.
I don't think 3-Count Bout was in any of them though - it was nice when that game got a nod in KoF XIII's intro dialogue between Kensou and Raiden, through a mention of Red Dragon.

i wonder if this is the reason neo geo station on PSN got neglected? i'd buy it if the hardware is well made and there is future support, but i'd like to see more games on PSN first. the emulation was fantastic.

I kind of wanted to believe it was because M2 had to work on SEGA Vintage Collections but... Damn, it's more than a whole year that NGS doesn't see an update (or even news) so I think it's very unlikely.
Also, the NGS Facebook page is basically all about Android/iPhone/Minis stuff since so many months, and it's been completely sidetracked from its original purpose: SNK PRs keep updating it and never care to reply to anyone asking about PSN (and 90% of comments are just about 'when in the world is NGS gonna get new games?'), so I take this obtuse silence as the most blatant proof the service has been dropped.

I was waiting for Real Bout so much, and seeing it coming for this 'new' console is such a disappointment: even more since I can't stop reading that bit saying 'an expandable game card slot' and thinking... Why? Are they selling this thing for 200 bucks just because they want to make some nostalgia-easy-money around day1 with the hardware, knowing already that people will just use it with illegally downloaded roms?

I'm so excited about this, my boss should send me home. I don't know why there's so much hate, but this is a hella deal to me. With no games included, I'd pay $200.
