Now You Can Own An Incredibly Expensive Neo Geo Made Of Exotic Wood


Are you serious about the Neo Geo? Like, really serious? Then you should check out Analogue Interactive, a company that makes console-sized Neo Geo MVS arcade systems that will run on your home entertainment centre.

And if you’re really serious, check out their just-launched “Black Label” line, which incorporate exotic wood from all over the world. Sure, you can get a regular old model for $US649, but why not get one made out of Leopardwood? Or Cocobolo?

Check out the price list here. A standard Hickory or Cherry Neo Geo would run you $US1,299, but if you want a more exotic type of wood, you’ll have to pay an “exotic wood surcharge” on top of that. I’ve never paid an exotic wood surcharge, but I bet doing so would make me feel quite lordly.

  • ` a YouTube user called “ashens” reviewed the black plastic version of the neo geo, found it to be a piece of badly made crap, so no way im spending over $1000 in this

    • Ashen’s did review a Neo Geo device recently, but it was the recently released Neo Geo X system. As you would remember the system was not produced by Neo Geo but rather a company with a rather horrid track record in Blaze, as well as this the Neo Geo X primarily is a handheld (which unsurprisingly only utilises crappy emulation to play the Neo Geo titles) and the actual console unit itself was a plastic shell to hook the handheld into. . .

      These units in the article appear to be made by a third party enthusiast using the original Neo Geo design in mind and therefore I would expect if you’re going to be paying over a grand for this thing, the actual unit itself will be a functioning piece of hardware, not a crappy plastic shell. . .

  • Nintendo Magazine System would always have full page ads for the Neo-Geo home console. $989, in 1993! Thos were the days…
