SNK terminates Neo Geo X Gold licensing, Tommo required to cease production

DNP Neo Geo X Gold console pulled by SNK, retro gaming dies just a little more

Not even a year after the Neo Geo X’s rocky road to market, creator SNK is pulling the plug. The firm has severed ties with manufacturer / distributor Tommo, ordering it to “immediately cease any and all manufacturing, distribution, marketing and promotion and selling of the Licensed Products.” Affected items include the handheld console, the SNK NeGeo X arcade stick and all applicable software. This isn’t really a surprise for a system that was plagued with delays and pricing issues from the word “go,” but it’s sad to see nonetheless. A handful of retailers have the console marked down from its $200 price, so if you were on the fence about buying one new, now would be the time to get off of it. Or, you could always go the wooden route.
