Most probably haven't played, or heard of it, So l'll give a brief recap...
The Atari Jaguar was launched in 1993, Orriginally it was supposed to be a 32 bit console called the panther. But atari decided to skip to 64 bit, That's right 64 bit in 93'.
The commercials consisted of an old women in a classroom saying "you think you have the most powerful gaming console?" "let's take a look, Genesis is 16 bits, 3DO is 32 bit, Jaguar is 64 bit!".
"Jaguar! Jaguar!! JAGUAR!!!"
anyways, there whole motto was "do the math", but gamers who bought the Jaguar found that games looked 32 bit and some 16 bit!
This caused a lot of controversy among people whether it really was 64 bit graphics.
Scientists found that it was in fact 64 bit, But you never saw it? This was because the Jaguar was so complexly designed that it was almost impossible to manufacture a game all the way up to 64 bit.
Sad but true.
The Jaguar did have a fanbase off their games, Don't get me wrong, Jaguar had great games, but their mistake was advertising for 'Peak efficiency' when they really should've called it 32 bit, since that's the average game.
Later on they made a bigger mistake, They made a CD add on, ring any bells? how about segas bad attempts to make the genesis last longer.
the Jaguar CD should've been it's own console.
Guess what, The CD add-on actually allowed 64 bit graphics and some games could even pass for 128 bit! No joke, The only problem was, people wouldn't want to buy the Jaguar just so they can buy the CD add on.
But the graphics were brilliant, it's sad the console just faded away...
Theres some history for you.
Edit: oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the CD console was Extremely delicate.
Sorry if my review is a bit iffy on you're point standards, this was a review I had done on the wii(no joke, took me 2 hours... yes I have a pc ) enjoy
