Busy days are over and here i am mates! My last post was about a week or more so its really nice to get back on track.
I, at times encounter consoles of different sizes, shapes and built. They can even be weird and out of the normal shape but, not did i encounter a cartridge this huge.
It's a NEO GEO MVS game.I'll be honest, i did not have any knowledge on Neo geo MVS specifically or any NEO GEO SNK products during the time i got this stuff, so i was pretty startled of its size.
Yes, its almost of the same size as the Nintendo's AV Famicom.
Or close to a commercially popular earphone box. It is indeed fairly large and bulky compared to other cartridges i realized.
This game is the famous metal slug sequel , Metal slug 2. A more graphically nice update of the first release which was a hit,just to mention.
Later on, for a 362 Mbit cartridge , i understood that it is not surprising how huge it is and the other MVS cartridges.Probably, they needed this huge boards to store more memory or something, because at its time, this games really took a quantum leap when it comes to video gaming technology.
It even have vents on it, because this cartridge would usually sit inside a arcade machine cabinet , unlike the home version AES which is comfortably placed at houses.
They also have 4 screws just right above that are easily accessible, for maintenance purposes is guess.
It is also noticeable that unlike usual cartridges, it does have 2 boards inside that inserts simultaneously to the console.
It may be a long shot but i am really dreaming to play this game and actually own a mvs arcade system, or even just an adapter with an aes system someday. Yea, i know , i know, its a dream worth big bucks =D . It is fine , as to dream is FREE. =D Who knows.
