For a brief few years in the early 1990s, the NEOGEO was the pinnacle of video gaming.
An elite, exclusive console that didn’t just emulate the arcade experience - as so many 8- and 16-bit consoles tried to do - it was the arcade experience, pixel for pixel on your TV at home.
It was the console that everyone aspired to, but was owned only by a relatively small number of hardcore fans.
This exclusivity has helped make it one of the most sought-after relics of retro-gaming, with hardware and software now commanding prices that, ironically, vastly eclipse their original cost.
