Sony has recently released that they will be releasing some classic Neo Geo games on December 21st on the Playstation network, and now SNK is looking to complete the retro gaming experience with their Neo Geo gamepad for the Playstation 3.

For me, the Neo Geo was the system that everyone drooled over but no one could get their parents to buy at the hefty $650 price tag it commanded in 1990. With a floating 8 way D-pad, the controller was and is a popular item and now SNK has a PS3 worthy equivalent, complete with PS3 button and USB connectivity. This gamepad is slotted to only be released in Japan for 3,129 yen. That comes to around $37 American, and Play-Asia will send you one Stateside for $45.
