Supposedly Atari had around 100,000 unsold Jaguar consoles at the end of 1995 from what I read (no clue as to how accurate it is but who knows?)
Atari’s report to stockholders that year was bleak: “From the introduction of Jaguar in late 1993 through the end of 1995, Atari sold approximately 125,000 units of Jaguar. As of December 31, 1995, Atari had approximately 100,000 units of Jaguar in inventory … . There can be no assurance that Atari’s substantial unsold inventory of Jaguar and related software can be sold at current or reduced prices if at all.”
I know Tigerdirect bought some and sold them dirt cheap on their site around 1997 and obviously Brad from Best Electronics. But did those two, and maybe any other company that managed to get their hands on some, buy all the of the remaining unsold consoles Atari had on hand? (i've read KB Toys supposedly had massive displays of them for like $19.99 in the late 90s, but seeing as how I am 25 and was only born in 1992 i'm too young to remember and obviously wouldn't of been paying attention as a 6 year old or whatever)
Or did Atari have a bunch of leftovers that they ended up disposing of, or recycling, or whatever? Just how many factory sealed Jaguar consoles does Best Electronics have on hand?
