Hi guys,
I'm new to atarisage,so hi everybody,I was just wondering if anyone could help me.
Iv got the chance to buy this jaguar prototype but i don't know if it's legit or not and I don't know anything about prototypes.
Unfortunately iv only got this one picture and the console is boxed.
Also does anybody know what it's worth?as I don't want to over pay.
Many thanks in advance.
Cheers Sam.

I'm no expert but it does not look that much different to me than a retail unit...other than the ROM has a sticker on it and appears to be socketed. Do you know any history behind the unit?

It's missing the electrical tape and SNEZ connectors.

I think getting a better picture of the so called box would be appropriate. I did look inside my Jag and its about the same unit as a whole minus whats already been mentioned stickers and socket.

 

Could the person who has it get you more info and some more pictures?

Isn't that a stubulator Jag for use with the alpine board?

I was thinking that or a JBL cable setup?

Appears to be stubulator Jaguar for use with Alpine but should be able to play retail games just fine. Does it come with an Alpine development board too?

Prices are really weird in the Jaguar market right now but I would say probably between $200-$250 permitting it is in perfect working order.

... I don't know anything about prototypes.
...


Curious, why buy a prototype if you know nothing about prototypes? Why not just save a bunch of money and get yourself a regular Jag?

Sometimes the point of buying proto is to know more about it and find out what's different from final version.

I agree. This is probably not a prototype but a Dev unit.
