    Talking Neo Geo games to hit Virtual Console this Summer

    http://www.joystiq.com/2007/04/18/ne...ole-worldwide/

    Great news for those who can't afford the carts! "A little more than a SNES title $8!"

    I may make my first Virtual Console purchase with these!

    Hopefully, we'll see some sort of Wii fighter joystick...but I'm not holding my breath.

    It would be cool if SNK released something similar to the Neo Stick 2 for the PS2, but a wireless one with a Wiimote dock.

    I read the article on IGN this morning. The president of SNK said they plan on pulling from all 120 released Neo games. This is truly excellent news...I'm happy I never spent the $ on the system as I'm officially out of room in my entertainment center!

    A step in the right direction for sure, especially on SNKP's part. This should get a great series of IP out to more people who always wanted to play the games but never could. Of course, this is all subject to SNKP's reputation for delaying EVERYTHING.

    Personally, I'll hold my breath for them to release content on the 360. Since I already own my favorites on MVS it's hard for me to justify buying them again without a better controller and online play.

    Of course, the first released game for the VC will be Andro Dunos.

    Second will be Double Dragon.

    Without a joystick I can't see how these are going to be that much fun. Most, if not all Neo games thrive on that arcade-like experience.

    And besides, most of the mainstream stuff has been released elsewhere, so it's not 'OMG I CAN FINALLY PLAY ART OF FIGHTING' or anything like that.

    I think I'm the only Neo Geo owner (with Phantom convertor, natch) who absolutely detests joysticks. Hated them in arcades, hated them on the home system.

    The fact that I can now get they for about $10, play on a HD TV with minimal resolution loss (I'm expecting TG16 like results) and play with the Nintendo equivalent of a Saturn controller?

    They'll have all my money.

    I wonder which games that will be released. The biggest Neo Geo games are like 80MB large. Will fill up the internal memory damn fast. Good price tho

    Heh, use a ps2-gamecube converter and a ps2 arcade stick. I'm hoping to see some kind of Arcade stick to come out for the Wii. Not just for VC, but for other games.

    I'm just afraid how much Nintendo will try and sell the games for. I won't buy any if they're over 800 points.

    Given SNKP's track record, I'm highly skeptical about this until I see a title list. ONe that doesn't include NAM 1975 on it.

    Problem is, there are more than 120 released NEO games, so once again, the President of SNK Playmore shows what an idiot he is.

    God, if you're going to run a company with a large fan base, at least get your information correct.

    There were 146 officially released Neo-Geo MVS games, 12 of which were released outside of the US.

    In addition, there were 17 proto games that were not released, some of which are completed, and fully playable (ie. Ghostlop, Fun Fun Brothers)

    SNK Playmore continues to disappoint...
    Great to deal with: Leonk, AdamG, Cheesystick, DigitalPress, ButtaSuperb, Hydr0x, Darth Vader, Gary Gnu, Portnoyd, NexWave, Postermen, Kaine23, ARCZero, kai123, Buyatari, Minilek, DREW, bighab, AlanD, Flack

    Could he have been referring to first party SNK games(as well as the ones from companies they've absorbed, like ADK)? That's what I assumed he meant.

    Also, if Andro Dunos was among the first games out, I would be a happy man. I love that fuckin game, but don't own a copy of it myself.

    This will be hurting the sega genesis for what fighting games will be on the virtual game console. I don't see sega releasing time killers for the virtual game console. I am not certain if a mortal Kombat game makes it to the virtual game console for the genesis.

    Taking the snk and the Mortal kombat games for the genesis, all they have is Street fighter 2: championship edition, Super Street fighter, Ballz 3d,Clay fighter, Time Killers, Double Dragon 5, Eternal Champions, Shaq-fu,Budokan: the martial Spirit,Justice League Task Force, Ka-ge-ki: steel, Slaughtersport, and TNNT: Tournament Fighters.

    Yuck! After you take out the MK games for the system. The only genesis fighting game that is worthy of a virtual game console release is Eternal Champions, if the street fighter 2 games will be on the genesis vc system due to capcom putting them on the snes.

    Also...I am sure it is safe to assume that any of the games be they fighting games or otherwise were available on both the Genny and the SNES, then I have little doubt that the SNES version will always be the one to get released over the Genesis versions. So MK and TMNT:fighters..etc...will likely come to the VC at some point, but it will likely be the SNES versions and not the Genesis versions.

    I just want the samurai showdown games to be on VC. Especially Samurai Showdown V special. The real one, not that censored crap.
