SNK, Tommo Feud Over Neo Geo X

According to a report on Gamasutra, the rhetoric is heating up between the makers of the unlicensed hand-held device, the Neo Geo X, and the classic Neo Geo platform owners.

Last week, Neo Geo X developer SNK Playmore said that it had ended an agreement with Tommo Inc, the company that manufactures the handheld in North America. Although SNK Playmore did not go into the details of why the deal was terminated, it noted that Tommo was no longer licensed to make or sell any Neo Geo X products.

But today Tommo hit back at SMK Playmore, saying that it had not breached any contract with SNK Playmore, and that it plans to continue supporting and marketing the Neo Geo X . The company even went so far as to say that it plans on making the device for a long time and has an agreement in place to manufacture the handheld until 2016. The manufacturer is now demanding that SNK Playmore retracts its termination announcement. It will be interesting to see how SNK Playmore responds.

In case you didn't know, the Neo Geo X plays classic Neo games, hence its name.

We'll have more on this story as it develops.
