Wow cant believe there is no battery inside! As he says, its not usable as a portable now, cant even charge it up, pretty poor decision to make imo.

It is a very strange decision. They must have really wanted to hit that price but I think most people buying this would have payed a bit more to have an internal battery.

I did see one review where they mentioned it would run off of a portable charger. Not perfect but better than nothing and I know I have a couple of them sitting here collecting dust. I'd finally have a reason to use them!

Thats the trouble with more and more manufacturers, they EXPECT us to have the stuff to be able to run what we are buying, same for the NES Mini etc, but at least in that case that came with a hdmi cable.
But come on, them selling thousands it would cost only pennies to add them, sign of things to come? sure, am i bothered? yeah could sway me to not buy one now.

Neo Geo was a sign of luxury, this product has no battery, no cables and no joypad for 2 player, heck you even have to put the decals on yourself, far from the luxery look, even the Neo Geo X looked and was packaged better than this (emulation not withstanding).
