[EN]: From time to time, there have been a few retro-consoles released to the public. A re-release of the Atari 2600 comes to mind, which I’ve seen it in stores, even as of recent. Though now there is a certain preference for downloading retro games in current consoles, especially those titles of the arcade or old-console-type, it’s nice to actually play games the way they were meant to be played on a new version of a console with a replica of the original controller.
The arrival of the Neo Geo arcade system and game console brought lots of quality games, preferably of the fighting type. I remember the games cartridges were expensive to buy then, due to the fact it was actual arcade games, and the system, an arcade console. This new retro-console will be released on December 6, 2012, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the NeoGeo AES console. The NeoGeo X Gold entertainement system will be sold at $199.99, and will come packed with the NeoGeo X Station, the NeoGeo X portable along with 20 pre-loaded games, and the NeoGeo X Joystick.
The portable device will have modern features such as a game card slot, its own LCD screen, a headphone jack, and will work with both the joystick and the station to charge the device and transfer the game to an HDTV or monitor via HDMI or A/V out. Read the press release to check out what games will come pre-loaded.

Aunque ahora hay una cierta preferencia por descargar juegos retros a las consolas presentes, más bien aquellos títulos de pinball, arcade o tragamonedas, o de viejas consolas, es verdaderamente bueno jugar juegos de la manera en que estaban destinados a ser jugados en una nueva versión de una consola con una replica del control original.
La llegada del sistema arcade NeoGeo y consola de juegos trajo varios juegos de calidad, preferiblemente los del género de luchas. Recuerdo los cartchos que eran caros para comprarlos debido a que eran verdaderos juegos arcade, y el sistema, una consola arcade.

El sistema de entretenimiento NeoGeo X Gold será vendido a $199.99, y vendrá empacado con la NeoGeo X Station (consola), el portátil NeoGeo X y 20 juegos pre-cargados, y la palanca de juego NeoGeo X Joystick.
