Neo Geo Pocket

Neo Geo Pocket

This is the start of the collection. A Neo Geo Pocket (Black and White version). I was always intreagued by these little things. Smaller in all dimentions than the updated colour counterpart the B&W system feels very well put together.  Nothing creaks, the buttons are responsive and the thumb pad is very clicky.

Not released in Eurpoe (to my knowledge) this B&W unit definitly has the Japanese “dinky” feel to it. Tactile and fun to use as long as you’re outside as it does seem to hjave a major weakness compared to the colour syste min that the screen is pretty terrible to use inside. The colour units I’ve owned before always worked in modest artificial light, this… well, it doesn’t…
