I don't have a Neo Geo but I thought this looked pretty awesome and it is still in development.

Looks great, and nice to see a new Neo Geo game, but the price as usual is ridiculous! 400 EUR for a Metal Slug clone? Even if I had the hardware I wouldn't buy it at that price.

Wow that's some price. I assume that comes on a MVS cartridge?

Looks and sounds very good, NGDev are great devs, though the only thing i don't like the look of is the 'floaty' main character, they need to add some gravity to him! Imo that makes the game look 'cheap' if you know what i mean like a badly programmed PD game, fix that and wow, pity Neo Geo CD owners never get any ports of these games, i don't mind the 10 minute loading!, once its in ram you were ok!

That price is for the standard version on MVS, the limited edition with shockbox is 450EUR! I understand why these games were so expensive  back in the day, the memory and other components cost a lot. I also understand why the old games still cost so much on ebay today, supply and demand. However, I have no idea why they charge so much for these new games, other than they can because people will buy them at that price. It's crazy!

And yes, it sucks for CD owners like myself that these never get CD releases, but I would imagine that this game is too big to fit on a CD. That's the reason only the first two Metal Slug games were released on CD, and some of the other later Neo Geo games too. It's funny to think that a cartridge can hold more than a CD, but that's the case when it comes to the Neo Geo.

No the biggest Metal Slug 3 Neo-Geo game is 708MB, so technically it could fit on a CD, i just think at the time sales were drying so they ended porting games to the format.
But it doesn't explain why homebrew games do the same, Last Hope was ported to the NGCD, though i know a couple of games back in the day had slightly smaller sprites than the AES version, but i thought that was just down to reducing the loading times to a minimum.

Either way its annoying that all we get is Frogfeast and couple of demos!

Dam, your right, could end up been a great business for these guys and others, but it still remains what the logistics on cost, marketing, distribution, copyrights and many other things yet to be revealed regarding the Retro VGS machine.

I'm sure they've been in contact with many devs regarding this, but remember, I don't think these guys will want to be completely tied in to contracts regarding their IP's and such. remember if this flops on it's arse, could cost devs dearly.
