For those who missed out on the Neo Geo game console the first time around, SNK Playmore's Neo Geo Station games for the PlayStation Network have provided something of a history lesson in classic gaming. Now you can get your education on the cheap, as a month-long discount on all of those titles kicks off today.
You see, back in the day, we liked our video games to have exactly two dimensions. None of this fancy-pants running around in 3D worlds, listening to rock music and smoking the goofballs. We only had a side view of our games and, well, that was more than enough.
Whether you're a grumpy ole'-timer like Grandpappy Winslett or not, however, many of the Neo Geo's classic games hold up today. They may night be as visually stunning or technically polished as modern offerings, but that doesn't mean they aren't still a blast to play.
Between now and Sept. 25, all Neo Geo Station games on the PlayStation Network are getting marked down by 50 percent. That means all of the PlayStation 3 games will move from $8.99 to $4.99 for the next month, with all PlayStation Portable games moving from $6.99 to $3.49. Or, if you're feeling particularly nostalgic, you can pick up a 10-game bundle pack on the PS3 for $39.99. Not a bad way to celebrate Neo Geo's 20th anniversary, huh?
Without further ado, here's a list of the discounted games:
Alpha Mission II
Art of Fighting
Baseball Stars 2
Baseball Stars Professional
Metal Slug 2
The King of Fighters '94
The King of Fighters '95
The King of Fighters '96
