Whats NEOGEO Station?

NEOGEO Station is a game service that allows the player to take full advantage of high-quality PlayStation®3 and PSP® (PlayStation®Portable)

You can enjoy the original version of the NEOGEO games you buy on the PlayStation®Store,
and moreover, can play in Versus Mode and in Cooperative Mode on PS3™ system with the Online NETWORK MODE function.
Similar functions are also available on PSP® system via a Wireless LAN connection (Ad hoc Mode).

In addition, NEOGEO Station features many options that didn’t exist at the time of the NEOGEO ROM system:
along with common features such as changing the button configuration and display / screen size settings,
the possibilities to save and replay your gameplay (replay data) at any time allows you to enjoy the NEOGEO games even more.

    just as a NEOGEO ROM system with a MEMORY CARD inserted would let you do.
    You will be able to save and load your game progression, unlock hidden characters
    or perform cheats as well as it was possible on the original NEOGEO ROM system equipped of a NEOGEO MEMORY CARD.
    Furthermore, the information saved in the NEOGEO MEMORY CARD is saved as System Save data.

Okay, i got a question: Is the Neo Geo Station an App for the PS3 or is this just a brand name for all the Neo Geo games coming to PSN?
They havent said yet... they talk about a service. So we dont know yet.
Maybe when you buy the first game you also download the app. Dunno.

EDIT : Just asked lets wait now.

Not found. Oh noes!

Not that it matters. Am I wrong assuming that the NeoGeo library consists mainly of beat 'em ups and shmups? I respect that they're bringing those games to modern consoles.

No trophies. Sorry.

According to one of the trailers the netcode is good, its the first time they say something like that.

Mega Shock? More like Mega Suck. This is essentially just a slightly spiced up Game Archives brand. Yet they want to charge 9 bucks to run a game on the PS3, and another 7 bucks to run a game on the PSP as well. Fuck that. The standard has been set by PS1 and PCE games, and Neo Geo is just lagging behind like a bunch of bitches, yet they dare to charge more? GTFO. :lol

Also, you don't have to bother asking. It's not an app, they're all individual games. Neo Geo "Shit" Station is just a brand for how they're going to overcharge PSN users with their garbage.

This press release makes it much clearer: http://asia.playstation.com/sg/en/news/pressDetail/207452
Oh i see.
Thanks for the info.. see you online on KOF and GAROU!

Garou will be the only title I am likely to buy. I would definitely have supported Metal Slug is it was a PS3/PSN combined release like normal Game Archives titles, but I'm not spending 16 bucks just to be able to play it on PS3 and PSP. At least with Garou I know I'll never play a fighter seriously on the PSP. Lulz.

No, and I have no objections with charging more for an enhanced Game Archives line at all. My issue with how they took one of the best things about the retro releases (you can play on PS3 or PSP, regardless of where you bought it originally) and split it into separate products, while still operating under the rules of Game Archives (no trophies). As an owner of a PS3 and a PSP, I would prefer if they charged 10-12 bucks instead, and had both PS3 and PSP versions in the game.

No complains about Garou though. No one should play that on the PSP anyway. :lol

(I agree about the PS3/PSP thing)

Will buy if comes with good netcodes.
Yeah im really curious because these games are emulated so its easier to use rollback style netcode. (Since you already have the game state in binary form)

Yeah I'll probably only pick up Garou as well, because well it's Garou. Other wise this thing is pretty terrible top to bottom. The prices are too steep and they could have gone the Game Room route and then just sell roms. Would have also made it really easy to put some trophies into the basic client.

The only one I'd get is Metal Slug 1.

Wish they put in KOF96 at least. KOF 94 and 95 are barely playable for today's standards.

They should have put in Samsho 2 instead of 1 as well.

Wait, I just noticed the wording here:

Procedure to avoid Original Bugs
“I want to play a NEOGEO Station game exactly as its original version”.
NEOGEO Station has not corrected any bug present in the original versions of the NEOGEO games, don’t worry.
If a bug that locks up the game occurs, you can return to the game easily just by doing a reset with the RESET function in the PAUSE MENU.
I appreciate the thought, but is it really a good idea for them to specifically market the fact that the games might have bugs (which might even cause the game to lock up!) and that they are not correcting any bugs as a FAVOR to consumers? :lol :lol

if they corrected bugs, you would have purists complaining about 'tainted' versions of the game.

I think the best solution would be just to not say anything about it though. You don't have to fix bugs in legacy releases, and no one really expects it unless it's totally game breaking. Once purists try the games out and find that the bugs are still there, they'll tell their friends and be happy it's "as it is", but I don't think anyone who might not otherwise know there might be bugs in old games needs to be informed that there might indeed be bugs and that they will STILL be in there, like that's a good thing. Lol.

Me too, maybe I'd get Fatal Fury for the kicks, but honestly the catalog doesn't hook me up too much considering the price and the ps3/psp issue.

There are no words.
it might be seperate because of technical issues too. i don't know how hard it is to disable features like PS3 netplay, replay save, online rankings and possible trophies. there might be problems when people try to juggle games between PS3 and PSP.

just my assumption.

The only technical problem I see is that SNK Playmore technically wants to make more money out of people who actually want to use a game on both the PS3 and the PSP. :p
