SNK Playmore is getting back into the hardware market with the NeoGeo X Gold Entertainment System. Designed to play games from the original NeoGeo arcade and console gaming system, the retro portable is set for worldwide release December 6, with a $200 asking price.

Contrary to popular belief, 3 Count Bout is actually a pro wrestling game, and not a super-hot boy band.

The NeoGeo X Gold will come with 20 games built in and includes a game card slot to add more later. It also features a recharging and docking station with HDMI and A/V hookups so players can see the action on a TV set or other monitor. On top of that, the system will have its own joystick fashioned after the original NeoGeo home console controller, a 4.3-inch LCD screen, stereo speakers, and a standard headphone jack.
