Removed links[edit]

The link to AtariAge on the history of the Jaguar should not be included here because it only contains one paragraph on the Jaguar II, and it's not even a detailed paragraph. If there's a better page somewhere that focuses on the Jaguar II then it would be appropriate for this article. 03:04, 3 March 2006 (UTC)

When[edit]

Could somebody please state when it was in development?

Confusion over end of the project ?[edit]

The opening section is confusing about the end of the project - was it cancelled in 1995 (as explicitly stated) or (as inferred) when Atari was absorbed by JTS in 1996 ? If it was cancelled prior to the merger, then the reference to JTS is redundant & misleading. Anyone able to shed any light on this (preferably with references) ?

It was cancelled in the summer of 1995. I corrected the opening section. JohnMat 23:26, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Jargon[edit]

The Oberon graphics chip, which replaced Tom from Jaguar, taped out and was running in this prototype. Its companion chip, Puck, had not taped out by the time the project was cancelled in the summer of 1995 (the prototypes used Jerry chips).

What on earth does "tape out" mean?

Sorry about the jargon. Tape out is the release of a chip to manufactturing (it used to be sent on a tape). I edited the descritpion to refer to whether or not the design was complete. JohnMat 23:27, 8 March 2007 (UTC)

Sucessor unit[edit]

I strongly disagree with the listing of the Flashback, a reproduced 2600, being listed as a successor unit for the Jaguar II, in particular when the units page itself disagrees with this listing. This is Wikipedia, we should not be willy nilly adding "Oh, Atari made this, it must be a successor unit" for what is a reproduction of an older model. We don't go around listing the Nintendo Gameboy as the successor of the NES, do we? No, as they are in two different lineages. Or of the Lynx being the predecessor of the Jaguar, despite it arriving in between the Jaguar and the 7800. (Downix (talk) 05:02, 9 March 2008 (UTC))

No refernces[edit]

There are ZERO references on this entire page and the page is NOT new. Does anyone have at least one source to base any of this page on? It's been here for awhile. — Preceding unsigned comment added by TheKingsTable (talkcontribs) 22:26, 16 February 2014 (UTC)
