The SNES was capable of producing better screen resolutions after all. Games like Street Fighter II and Final Fight almost mirrored the arcade versions perfectly, especially when graphics were concerned.

No, the SNES has a lower screen resolution than any of the Neo Geo systems.

The SNES is 256x224 with 16 - 16 color palettes (8 for the screen and 8 for the sprites), and it only has 64k VRAM.
The Neo Geo is 320x224 with 256 - 16 color palettes (The Neo Geo uses sprites for everything). The most limited Neo Geo system (Neo Geo CD) has 512k of VRAM.

And, the SNES can do a maximum of 3 planes of graphics, but not all planes can use 16 color tiles. (Only two can be used, if both use 16 color tiles).
The Neo Geo can easily to 2 or 3 planes with 16 color tiles each.

The 68000 in the Neo Geo performs a lot better than the 65816 chip in the SNES, and has 16 bit access instead of 8 bit for the 65816.

The only advantage the SNES has is Mode 7. The Neo Geo can do the scaling, but not the rotation.

I have:

Neo Geo CD Top Loader, Japan
Neo Geo CD Front Loader, US(?)
Neo Geo CDZ, Japan
Neo Geo AES, US
Neo Geo MVS 1 Slot, Japan, in an arcade cabinet. I also have the control panel, but it won't fit in my cabinet.

The monitor in my arcade cabinent is finally starting to go out.  I've got the brightness adjusted all the way up but it's still really dark.  Anyone had to have their monitor fixed yet?

Hmmmm... as long as I've been around here, I have never noticed this thread. Maybe it is because I mostly go to the NEo Geo CD section of the forums.
I have a top loader NG CD and two NGPC. Wishing in a dream I had the AES.  :(

They're elite.  stupid expensive at back in the day, still several hundred today.  You don't trip over them at flea markets, goodwills, and yardsells like everything else and they're quality built.  Personally I believe the game library is weak but the games worth playing are not to be missed.  Almost everything worth playing is available in an anthology collection or on a virtual console, xbox live, etc. so the system itself isn't a must purchase but for the collector its an attainable rarity.  the aes especially is one step below prototype carts, and two steps above atari 2600 **** and unlike the other two the aes is fun to play.
