SNK, Tommo Feud Over Neo Geo X

October 8, 2013 - GamePolitics Staff

According to a report on Gamasutra, the rhetoric is heating up between the makers of the unlicensed hand-held device, the Neo Geo X, and the classic Neo Geo platform owners.

Last week, Neo Geo X developer SNK Playmore said that it had ended an agreement with Tommo Inc, the company that manufactures the handheld in North America. Although SNK Playmore did not go into the details of why the deal was terminated, it noted that Tommo was no longer licensed to make or sell any Neo Geo X products.

But today Tommo hit back at SMK Playmore, saying that it had not breached any contract with SNK Playmore, and that it plans to continue supporting and marketing the Neo Geo X . The company even went so far as to say that it plans on making the device for a long time and has an agreement in place to manufacture the handheld until 2016. The manufacturer is now demanding that SNK Playmore retracts its termination announcement. It will be interesting to see how SNK Playmore responds.

In case you didn't know, the Neo Geo X plays classic Neo games, hence its name.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.

If anything what Ashens put in his review of the unit, it is of poor quality with bad emulation, and hardware or design decisions in terms of video output. So it's possible that is why SNK is pulling the license.


anyone who is interested in that review

If you don't like something I said in a post, don't just hit the dislike, let me know your thoughts! I'm interested in knowing everyone's opinions, even when they don't mesh with my own.
