The... awkward joypad! title=The Atari Jaguar is a 16/32bit games console, created by Atari Corp. in 1993 with the main goal to compete with the Sega Megadrive and the SNES. Due to its technical specs it was finally considered as the main opponent of the 3DO games system (and Sony Playstation released a bit later).
Jaguar was packed with power beyond the limits of its time (though there were powerful machines as SNES). Its specs would allow it to create great games with thousands of colors on screen, CD quality stereo sound and rapid use of 3D objects. It was also supporting two Jaguar consoles to be networked with each other (JagLink Interface)! It was created to surpass the power of the Megadrive and the SNES and later to compete with the 3DO CD-game console. Jaguar was released in the US in November 1993 and after one year it hit the markets in Europe and Australia. This console was the first promoted as a 64bit machine but due to the bad marketing and its expensive price it proved to be a commercial failure for its mother Atari. The company was forced to leave the video games console market after that. The Jaguar has some tenths of games in its library, while software houses have been making games until 1998.
