Neo Geo Pocket

Released towards the end of 1998 in Japan, the Neo Geo Pocket was yet another challenger to Nintendo's Game Boy.

The Neo Geo Pocket had great battery life (even the Pocket Color managed around 40 hours from just two batteries!), an area where so many Game Boy competitors had failed, and a number of SNK's popular arcade games appeared on the system.

But the sales figures were lower than SNK were expecting and the machine was discontinued after just a few months, only to be immediately replaced by the Neo Geo Pocket Color. Due to it's short lifespan the original Neo Geo Pocket was never released outside Asia.

An unusual feature of the Neo Geo Pocket is that it's forwards compatible and is therefore able to play most (but not all) of the Neo Geo Pocket Color games.

We need more info about this computer ! If you designed, used, or have more info about this system, please send us pictures or anything you might find useful.
Please consider donating your old computer / videogame system to or one of our partners from anywhere in the world (Europe, America, Asia, etc.).


Strange that this is forward compatible with the Neo Geo Pocket Color. Perhaps they knew or intended this little unit to be a stopgap to the latter. And perhaps this is also why sales were low for it upon it''s initial sales run and why it was only released in Japan....
