The Neo Geo is a cartridge-based arcade and home video game system released in 1990 by Japanese game company SNK. The hardware featured comparatively colorful 2D graphics and high-quality sound.
The MVS (Multi Video System), as the Neo Geo was known to the coin-op industry, offered arcade operators the ability to put up to 6 different arcade titles into a single cabinet, a key economic consideration for operators with limited floorspace. With its games stored on self-contained cartridges, a game-cabinet could be exchanged for a different game-title by swapping the game’s ROM-cartridge and cabinet artwork. Several popular franchise-series, including Fatal Fury, The King of Fighters, Metal Slug and Samurai Shodown, were released for the platform.
Outside the arcade-industry, the Neo Geo was also made available to the consumer-market as a very costly home console, known as the AES (Advanced Entertainment System.)
For the AES, many of the most popular and/or most wanted cartridges have become extremely difficult to find as well as prohibitively expensive. In addition, 35% of the NEO-GEO cartridge library (that is 31 of the 148 game releases) were never released on home cartridge format.
MVS games are much, much more affordable than their AES counterparts. A Consolized MVS is essentially an arcade board converted to a home console setup, allowing you to play MVS games on a TV or monitor, without resorting to bootlegs or massively expensive games.
