Ok, so I’ve got a guy locally here with a Neo Geo MVS system (arcade cab, not the home).
Installed with a 1 slot PCB with Metal Slug included and he’s asking $200.
He’s also got a 4 slot PCB he’s selling seperately and a bunch of games. I may or may not go for the extras, he’s only asking about 80 for the extra PCB with a UniBios.
He claims everything in working condition and no problems, I’m going to go over and check it out this weekend.
First, just wanted to know if this is a decent price assuming it’s in good working order.
Second question is this… I love Neo Geo and would probably keep it as is for a while, but assuming I got bored how hard would it be to mod this thing and just make it a Mame/Dreamcast/Jamma cab or whatever I felt like.
I know I can just gut the whole thing and put a Dreamcast or something in it easy, but I’m wondering how hard it is to replace the Control Panels on these. Because I’d like to swap it with a 6 button SF style layout at some point.
Thoughts? Would you jump on the deal? What should I look for when I go check it out? I’m new to working with arcade cabinets (part of why I like Neo Geo as a starter because the carts seem easy to work with, plus the games rock).
From what I can tell it’s one of these for reference. Although I don’t know if other style cabs were used for MVS, this is all I’ve ever seen at the arcade.
