Neo Geo Pocket
The monochrome Neo Geo Pocket was released in 1998.
By the year 2000, the Neo Geo Pocket was slightly profitable in the United States, and held a two percent marketshare of handhelds. Problems with SNK in Japan would lead to the console's withdraw in American markets.
Due to financial difficulties and new ownership of SNK by Aruze, including a rocky stint in the Pachinko business, the Neo Geo Pocket Color was discontinued in Canada and the United States on June 13th, 2000.
