Topic: Why did Atari use Cartridges and not CD from the get go?
Replies: 9

I believe the Jag CD was an afterthought. The Jag was developed in 1991, before the CD hoopla. But then when it got closer to launch time, CD mania started & Atari scraped together plans for a Jag CD, but it wouldn't be ready in time for the launch of the Jag cart system. Kind of like how the Saturn...

This is what I meant in that other thread when I say your 3DO bias is a bit much at times. ;) Iron Soldier has plenty of great textures. Check out the tanks, helicopters etc. They move super smooth and look realistic and are full of great looking textures. Battlemorph and Hoverstrike unconquered lan...

The only difference is the CD version has a CG intro and cutscenes and higher quality music from the CD. Same game otherwise. :) I also like Iron Soldier 1 more than 2 because IS1 is not hard as nails like IS2 is, even on the easy setting.. :shock: I have IS3 on the PS. I haven't played it a lot. It...

Ya I remember reading that before. Great read. Atari didn't have nearly enough money to compete. Plain and simple.

Just try to be a bit less biased against the Jag, 3DOKid. ;) It's not nice to create a Jag forum on a 3DO message board, invite Jag fans over, to have us read topics like "the 3DO is better than the Jag, right?" A topic like that belongs in the 3DO section... I noticed another comment / post or 2 fr...

How is the PS version sloppy? :? The Saturn, PS & Jag version are equally as good.. Little differences here and there, but not much.

Nice collections guys. :) My 3DO collection just really increased in size! I just bought 39 3DO games for $120 shipped! :D I have an FZ-1 and 50 or 60 something 3DO games now! :D Anyway, back to the Jag. ;) I've owned almost all of the Jag games. Currently I own all 44 originally released carts, but...

Ya, I heard / read the 3DO port was rushed, or something. Though I did notice something about the 3DO version of Doom. Although the framerate is poor, the resolution is VERY good. Even using just AV cables, 3DO Doom looked super-sharp on my 35 inch Trinitron. Noticeably more so than the Jag, 32X, PS...

Well, I just quadrupled my Jag game collection... I just ordered Zero 5, Checkered Flag, and Missile Command 3D! Eventually, I think I'll pick up Breakout 2000, AvP, Pitfall, and Attack of the Mutant Penguins. Cybermorph, Skyhammer, Atari Karts, and Iron Soldier are possibilities, too. I have loose...

So I've compiled this over the months... Would be cool to do this for the 3DO and other systems eh? I'm thinking of doing it for the 3DO... ;) The titles were in bold (at Atari Age) to help make it easier to browse the list, but I had trouble copying and pasting this block of text as html here.

Must be something with your Jaguar if 2 games did the same thing. Is your Jag beat up or well used?

Or, since you got the 2 brand new copies from the same place, I wonder if they have a bad batch of Dooms? Corrupted carts somehow.
