For the first time we could really have an arcade at home. The Neo-Geo was SNKs latest arcade kit in a console. The game cartridges you bought contained the exact same ROM-chips found in the arcade versions. Unfortunately, arcade hardware isn't cheap and nor were the Neo-Geo cartridges, at £100 and up most of us couldn't afford it. A few years later a CD version arrived dramatically reducing the game costs but it was too late, the gaming world had gone all 3D.
