The Future is Now! #SNK #SNK40th #NEOGEO #ネオジオ

I can't believe its been four whole decades since the Fury of Gaming world was set on Fire with the original launch of NeoGeo system by SNK, but it seems they are now looking to re-capture the youth of yesterday's Arcade Gaming with possible launch of their own Official NeoGeo Classic Mini, and from the way the cloth is covering the picture above, I think its going to be an Mini Bartop Arcade! :)

Sega wants in on the “classic edition” action for the Mega Drive’s 30’s anniversary

The internet was on fire last night after two big announcements were made by Sega, first we are happy to report all the details on their upcoming new Sega Genesis Mini, now originally the news was 'only in Japan', but PolyGon has gotten the low-down on all this 'sudden mini craze' by Sega, and it seems the failed AtGames flashback people are still involved, but its all new hardware, emulation, features and other regions might also get the 'cartridge port' like the previous attempts of Sega Mini that AtGames was doing via previous license agreements, but this all new with more official Sega marketing and team behind it, so hopefully it all works out better.

A Digital Review of the Analogue Super NT

Released in Japan in November of 1990, the Super NES was arguably one of the best entertainment system consoles ever released.
