SNK Neo Geo Pocket Consoles
The world-renowned SNK Neo Geo Pocket was released in Japan in 1998 but never officially made its way over to the UK and the rest of the west. Of course, this didn’t stop avid gamers from getting their hands on the system and instantly beginning to claim it as one of the best around.
Although a somewhat nifty and exciting handheld, the Neo Geo Pocket faced intense competition from the Nintendo Game Boy Advance, the powerhouse of the time. The GBA featured a full colour screen and ultimately lead to a pretty early demise of the the competition.
Replaced by the SNK’s revised coloured version less than a year after release, the monochrome version never really had time to hit its true potential. There were only ten games released although there were a number of key titles available that makes this console a must. Samurai Shodown, Sonic the Hedgehog’s Pocket Adventure and King of Fighters R-1 all appeared and the benefits of the console don’t stop there. Games for the colour Pocket are compatible with the non-colour version and vice-versa. Of course the Neo Geo Pocket’s screen still displays monochrome but the possibility to get hold of any game is a dream come true for many collectors.
