Bill Loguidice Posted October 12, 2015 Share Posted October 12, 2015 I do feel that there is a far stronger Jaguar community than 3D0, as well as being a stronger homebrew scene... It's all very well and good to compare systems by 'back in the day', or whatever, but ultimately it's here and now that matters too... Absolutely. The Jaguar has great homebrew support considering how poorly it sold. It helped the platform immensely from an emotional standpoint that it was Atari's swan song. I doubt there will ever be such an emotional attachment to the 3DO, even though it sold far better, has far more games, was taken better advantage of overall, etc. I suppose in part because of that there's also less of a need/incentive to create for it (and then there's the whole being able to play copied CDs on it thing, which probably arguably reduces the incentive to create for-pay homebrews on it even further). When push comes to shove I'd still recommend a 3DO far more than a Jaguar to someone really wanting an opinion on which one to get, but there's no denying there are some interesting aspects to the platform (for me, I love the spinner support and the six button Pro controller, which makes up for the sins of the stock controller).
