Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro

First look at the Neo Geo Arcade Stick Pro from SNK, it’s rumored to come with built-in games

are those buttons between the lever and the 30mms functional? If so, that’s wack as hell… Unless it has a lock switch too

Saw this on Twitter yesterday.

Looks… cute?
It’s not often you see rounded arcade stick designs like this.
I can’t really see it being priced at a number that would get me to buy one, but it’s differently cute enough that I might consider grabbing one if the price is right.

I’m going to assume that it’s the Start/Select buttons.
I don’t think I’d have a problem with accidentally hitting those buttons, but that varies from play-style/grip-style per player…

Yeah, I don’t think I’d have too many issues, but why risk it? It just seems like a silly place to put that. It’s in the middle of all the action

Any worries about hitting those during play should be trumped by a desire to work on better execution.

Uh I guess…? But if this thing comes pre-loaded with a bunch of games and one of my nephews wants to play, having a start button where he’s going smack it just seems dumb. They seem really low profile, and like I said before I bet they have a lock switch, but it just doesn’t seem intelligently designed :woman_shrugging:

That so called “pro” stick’s outline looks a hell of a lot like Qanba’s Q6 camo fightstick (the Q6 itself looked like an overblown sega saturn joypad …)

I’m not a fan of that design. It looks really bland & boring and, doesn’t get me pumped for some NeoGeo action.

As for the built-in games? Sorry. The Pandora Box line did it first and BETTER. I myself own a kickass, custom Pandora Box 6, all Sanwa parts, 1300+ games, excellent emulation, sexy SEGA Astro City cabinet artwork, Bubbletops, etc.

Also the irony of an Arcade stick that looks like a gamepad…

So those two things we thought were the Start and Select buttons are actually LED lights that indicate which mode it’s in.

At least, it can be used on PC. I expect this to have the same low quality display output as those Neo Geo Mini consoles.

Still it is leagues better than Capcom’s Arcade Stick

So pretty much the enrity of the Who’s Who’s of Neo Geo Fighting games.

Wow! Nice lineup.

I would`ve picked one of the Real Bout games over FF3
And AOF2 over the 1st one, but yeah it’s a pretty good list.
