Type5th Generation 64-bit Console
Launch23rd November 1993
Discontinued1996


The Jaguar was Atari's last console. Despite shouting about it being the first 64-bit console, lack of software support, and later, competition from the Saturn and Playstation helped cement its demise. Even a CD add-on couldn't save it!

Despite all this, the machine has a cult following, and currently has a thriving homebrew scene.
