SNK Bringing NeoGeo Games To PSN

Celebrating the system's 20th anniversary, NeoGeo Station to PlayStation Network on December 21, allowing PSN users to download classic NeoGeo games like Fatal Fury and Metal Slug.
In what it says is a celebration of the system's 20th anniversary, SNK Playmore USA will bring NeoGeo Station to PlayStation Network on December 21, allowing PSN users to download classic NeoGeo games. "The NeoGeo Station will be a continuously growing' library of classic NeoGeo games," SNK describes. Users can play the titles either on their PlayStation 3 or PSPs, and online versus and co-op play will be included. The company also promises to add new features geared at satisfying old-school NeoGeo fans as well as new customers. NeoGeo Station will launch with a slate of titles that include Fatal Fury, Metal Slug and The King of Fighters '94. All titles will be $8.99 per console version, and $6.99 for PSP versions -- the latter editions will mostly be available starting in January, except for Fatal Fury and Metal Slug, which will be available for PSP when NeoGeo Station launches. The initial launch list is as follows: Fatal Fury Alpha Mission II The King Of Fighters '94 Samurai Shodown Baseball Stars Professional Magician Lord Metal Slug League Bowling Super Sidekicks Art of Fighting The console initially launched in 1990 for home use as well as in coin-op arcades. As a home console, its very high launch price -- $649 for a bundle in the U.S. and $399 for the system as stand-alone -- was considered the primary factor prohibitive to its success, although many of the system's games and brands are still well-loved among gamers today.
