NEOGEO X GOLD NAMED ‘CONSOLE OF THE YEAR’ by IGN

Press Release for Immediate Distribution

 
London, UK – January 16th 2014

The NEOGEO X GOLD gaming console is named as ‘My Console of the Year’ by respected Editorial Contributor for worldwide online publication, IGN

The NEOGEO X was created to give fans of SNK’s classic AES console and its extensive range of classic arcade standard games, an affordable way to either re-live (or experience for the first time) this distinctive piece of gaming history. The IGN article below, details how the console lives up to this expectation, with its authentic Arcade Stick, glorious recreation of the AES console (in the form of the docking station, with HDMI output) and portable handheld console, giving you access to up to 36 esteemed SNK games wherever you are.

The article details how the NEOGEO X GOLD was the clear winner over the Sony PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Wii U and how it delivers on all of the key factors that it was developed for.

Andy Corrigan on IGN quoted:

“Thanks to the HDMI docking station and accompanying Arcade Stick that came with the Gold edition, both designed to look just like the original Neo-Geo AES console and its peripherals, I’m also able to recreate what it might just have felt like to play on the AES in my youth”

“I find myself every bit as wide-eyed, focused and eager to soak in all they have to teach, just as I would have been in the 90s. It’s been surprisingly awesome to find myself in that place once again.”

The NEOGEOX GOLD Limited Edition console is currently on special offer at only £150 at FunStock.co.uk - you also, unbelievably, get the NEOGEO X MEGA pack (with 15 additional NEOGEO games) included in the deal: http://www.funstock.co.uk/neogeo-x-with-mega-pack
