Are these carts still being made?

Yes, there is a batch in production right now. There is currently a global chip shortage, especially in microcontrollers and FPGA’s, so this may be the last batch for a while. 😕

I noticed the lead time for many chips is a year, it that what you are looking at?

 

I'm working around it where I can, but basically, yes. It's not a good situation atm.

Is there a timeframe for the for the latest batch, example March 2022 and do you know what resellers will get stock?  Thanks.

They are back in stock at Stone Age Gamer.  I just ordered one.  I would have ordered one from here but I wasn't sure if I was high enough on the wait list and I wanted to make sure I could secure one from this batch.  It sounds like it could be a long time before another batch is ready.

I don't see the shipping cost, which of the merchants sends across Europe?

Just to let everyone know, I have (finally) abandoned the Jaguar GameDrive waiting list.  I sent 300 emails yesterday to those on the list to try and sell the 100+ units I have in stock, and only received 40 positive responses, which resulted in (thus far) 31 sales.  Given this waiting list was created in early 2020 and we're now in 2022, it's time to put it to rest. 

 

Given all other vendors are selling these directly, without the encumbrance of a waiting list, as well as the sheer amount of time required to manage the list and individually giving people on the list access to purchase the Jaguar GameDrive, and the diminishing responses to invitations to purchase over time, it's nigh time to kill it.  Also, I figure most people who wanted one early on have been able to buy one at one of the various vendors selling them.

 

I am still limiting purchases to one to a customer, though. 

 

Here's a direct link to the Jaguar GameDrive entry in the AtariAge Store:

I didn't realize AA had any, I just bought one from Stone Age gamer because I didn't want to miss out again like I did last year. My name came up on the list last year and I didn't have the cash.

I can only imagine how hard that is to manage.   I ended up getting one through Stone Age Gamer, but made a large order of Atari homebrews/products in your store ;).    You make amazing products and will continue to promote what you offer :).

The Jaguar GameDrives sold out overnight.  I still have the waiting list setup, and will now use it to notify people when more copies are available, versus trying to walk through the list to notify people in order (and then giving them access to a hidden Jaguar GameDrive entry in the store that they can order from, which was the most time consuming part). 

 

Sign up here and you'll get an email the moment I have more Jaguar GameDrives available:

So it wasn't exactly scarce to glut either. Thanks for the service, my slot came up just in time to combine with Gravitic Mines. I would have hated to let my slot go to save on shipping.
