Yes SNK released the rolls royce of the console of that era. His name was NEOGEO (AES). It was very very expensive console and the same for its games on cartridge. The price of console was about 600Euro and a game in a 100M cartridge, about 150/200 Euro. The Neo Geo was able to use up to 330M games.
Another innovation was that the SNK release also a version of neogeo (MVS) for public videogames room. So you could play the same game both in your home or in the pub. With a special memory cards you could save you progress in the home console and play them in the public console and viceversa.
In the last pics the games that i own for this awesome console. The game displayed in the TV is King of the Monsters 2. The NeoGeo was the best console for play beat' em up games.
I still have some SNK stamps and brochures about neogeo console and videogames.I bought my SNK neogeo about 22years ago and now with bad weather (in my country), i'm playing with it.
