Just when you thought you’d heard the last from Atari they released the Atari Jaguar! Get ready to play some JAG!!! This system was released in 1993 to take on the Super Nintendo and the Sega Genesis. The Jag was promoted as the first 64 bit gaming system doubling the power of the 16 bit systems. Do the math the advertisements would say, but their 64 bit was far from true 64 bit gaming. The Jaguar also attempted to compete in the market with the Sega Saturn and Sony PlayStation. Atari also made a CD attachment for the Jaguar, but very few were sold. Sadly the Atari Jaguar did not live up to the hype and was a complete failure. This was the last console system to carry the Atari name until the Atari flashback machines which were systems with built in Atari 2600 games banking on Nostalgia.
