It just seems from what I have through the years that the only thing that would saved the Jaguar was a competent and flush with money Atari who actually helped developers. It wasn't the hardware. It was the lack of triple A software that hurt it.

I was so jazzed when I got but I just didn't see much in the terms of software that made me think it was that much better than Super NES or the Gensis. My two cents.

That.

And bad management.

And lack of advertising.

And poor relations with developers and retailers.

And competing against a 800-pound gorilla (Sony).

And really low budgets and team sizes compared to competitors.

And Atari running out of money.

And...

 

To succeed in the marketplace, what the Jaguar needed was a miracle.

Totally agree. Doesn't matter anyway. Atari, for all intents and purposes, is dead. Just nice to see people producing, games, controllers and other goodies for the Jag!
