Blaze claims Neo Geo X sellout

The Neo Geo X handheld has suffered a slight delay in Europe, although apparently the US launch stock has sold out.

The machine was supposed to launch in Europe earlier this month but despite going on sale in the US there’s no sign of the unit in the UK.

"Blaze and all our European distributors are collecting our stock this weekend from Asia and shipping it over Christmas to all our customers," a Blaze spokesperson told Eurogamer.

"In the UK, Funstock are our exclusive retailer for the Christmas season and they wrote to everyone to tell them 10 days ago when they would be getting theirs, so everyone who has placed an order is 100 per cent in the loop.

"I have received feedback today that all our distributors in Europe have now pre-sold all their stock. We have kept a quantity back for the New Year, but expect, ourselves, to be totally sold out early January."

Blaze also claims that the US launch has been a big success.

"US distributor Tommo released the first of their stock in the US version the day before yesterday,” he added. They have totally sold out and this has been a great boost for us in Europe as it has reviewed very well and our web sales went absolutely crazy yesterday. I have not seen anything like it before."
