No Comment 25 Views

High prices and minimal additions could sink this $8.99 per title for PS3 and $6.99 per title for PSP is steep to say the least, and there are other options to play these games.

SNK Playmore announced today that they will be launching the NEOGEO Station on the PlayStation Network to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NEOGEO videogame system on December 21st, 2010.  The NEOGEO Station will be a continuously growing’ library of classic NEOGEO games available via the PlayStation Network for $8.99 per title for PS3 and $6.99 per title for PSP (see below for comparison to other options available).

Since its release in 1990, the revolutionary "NEOGEO" videogame system has attracted millions of fans worldwide with its unforgettable library of arcade classics. In commemorating the 20th anniversary of the legendary NEOGEO MVS & AES, SNK has updated NEOGEO games for PlayStation 3 and PSPs with VERSUS and/or CO-OP Play so players all over the world can compete against each other via the PlayStation Network (PSP Versions will be compatible with Ad-Hoc Mode**). SNK is also adding a variety of features both hardcore fans and a new generation of NEOGEO gamers will be sure to appreciate.

The first 10 game titles on "NEOGEO Station" will be available on December 21, 2010 for the PS3 and will include "FATAL FURY", "METAL SLUG", and "THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’94". "FATAL FURY" and "METAL SLUG" will also be available for the PSP on December 21. Continuing in 2011, SNK PLAYMORE USA will offer the PSP versions of the other eight game titles as well as a wide variety of other games that made the "NEOGEO" world-famous in the 90

Here is the complete launch title list for NEOGEO Station - each PS3 version will sell for a suggested price of $8.99 per title, each PSP version will cost $6.99 per title. All titles listed will be available for the PS3 on December 21, 2010 and except where noted, in January for the PSP:

  • FATAL FURY (PSP 12/21)
  • ALPHA MISSION II
  • THE KING OF FIGHTERS ’94
  • SAMURAI SHODOWN
  • BASEBALL STARS PROFESSIONAL
  • MAGICIAN LORD
  • METAL SLUG (PSP 12/21)
  • LEAGUE BOWLING
  • SUPER SIDEKICKS
  • ART OF FIGHTING

This is a big series of classic games that have been updated and promise to be as popular as they once were with many of us who remember and played them originally still around and kicking so we can play them again.

However, the price is pretty steep considering you can find them in various forms for cheaper. Plus, I don’t see why they didn’t make them into Minis so that one could be played on both platforms. It just seems like a greedy cash grab on the part of SNK Playmore now. I guess it depends on what you really want, value or some superficial additions.
