Curious to see where this goes. Clear Jaguar shells will be neat. I'm excited about the new system that will come after this but have to temper my excitement with knowing how long these projects can take and how things usually go.

They sold beyond thier expectations 150 console shells 600 cartridge shells. More news coming soon.  Also, I got them coming to chat tonight to talk more about it.

 

Wow! Over $11K is sales of the clear Jaguar parts!!!

 

Wish I had the money to order one!

heres some more about retro vgs from a post mike did at AA

 

 

Hey Guys!

 

I just wanted to address the cartridge pricing.  We will be doing all manufacturing of both the consoles and cartridges here in the USA (PCB's however, will be contract manufactured and arrive to our facility as a sub assembly), under our own roof, in Southern California.  Carts will be priced based on the games that are on them.  For example, a new game from a fledgling indie or homebrew developer might be priced $19.99 while a popular franchise sequel might be $40-$50 depending on licensing costs mainly!  And everything inbetween.  So the short answer are carts will be priced from $19.99 to $49.99.

 

We are targeting the console to be $149.99.  The retail box will include the console with four controller ports ( x 2 USB  for the x 2 pack-in controllers and x 2 9-Pin ports for classic controllers), a pack-in game (possibly up to three pack-in games only for Kickstarter buyers), HDMI cable (and possibly composite and/or S-Video too) and AC Adapter.  There is a small chance this might have to price out at $179.99 based on system hardware which will be a gamers and developers delight. . . . but doing all we can to try and stay at that $150 price point.

 

More details will be revealed about system hardware and development criteria soon.

I think there should be new section just RetroVGS or maybe continue the other topic that somebody else did.

keep this open though in case he does another console/cart shell runs.

:mac_bomb:  The Retro VGS is not a Jaguar. This thread should be about ordering the clear Jaguar shells, which is a Jaguar-related topic. Further discussions of the new Retro system should be had in Classic Gaming General.
