A good deal if you can get a cheap , working , unboxed Jag - then you'll have a boxed Jag with a game , 2 controllers , and a spare power supply for virtually the price of an unboxed Jag - I'd say that was a pretty good deal

So, do you reckon it can be fixed? If anyone has any Jaguar games that they are selling then PM me :)

Sounds like the connector pins in the console are a bit loose. Maybe try bend them slightly or such.

Including postage, no. Can get a new, boxed one for £15 quid and up with a bit of luck.

A new Jaguar for 15 quid? You'd have to be very lucky get a deal like that.
I think it should be easy to fix the cart slot.

Well i got it today and it it works fine, no problems whatsoever. Well, apart the awful controller and Cybermorph, which is just a textureless mess :lol:

i got one as a direct swap for two nes games i didn't want!

so i wouldn't pay much for one!

£1.20 isn't bad if it works/can be repaired
and £10 is a fair postage price as far as ebay goes!

Hey, I like Jaguar's controller! The Pro Controller is a definite improvement over the standard one though even if its increasingly difficult to source. :)

I bought a brand new Jaguar from GAME a few years ago when they were selling them off (and Lynx's) for £10. I never really got my tenners worth of gameplay so I didn't consider it a good purchase.

I have Doom for Jaguar if you want it.

You have Doom and you didn't get a tenner's worth of gameplay?

No, even though the conversion is passable I hated the pad so much that it made having any fun a futile mission. I actually preferred the SNES verison.

I also got a Jaguar for £15 from Gamestation a few years back.

Pick up Tempest 2k. Its the only game I ever play on my Jag. Well worth it just for that.
