Long live the 32-bit 3DO and Atari Jaguar

Blake Snow

GameSetWatch examines the niche cult following of the 3DO and Atari Jaguar even to this day. What you might not know is that a homebrew scene still churns out new games. That's right, in 2007, games are still being released for them by enthusiasts. Both consoles still living the 32-bit dream. The Jaguar even sees proper new cartridge games being sold for actually money and active chat rooms still discussing the ill-fated system. Console fanboys never die.

From the article: "The 3DO multiplayer and the Atari Jaguar have been dead twice as long as they were alive – yet a handful of e-Necromancers keep the spirits of these long since gone consoles alive. In the dark places on the web, past the Xbox 360 groups, beneath the PS3 and the Wii - the fans of early 32bit generation hardware keep these machines alive."
