    Default How many Atari Jaguar games released in North America?

    I'm gonna go with 49 for carts and 13 for CDs. I don't count anything released after Worms in 1998. Just whatever would have been commercially available during the consoles initial run before they became public domain.

    Wikipedia says 50 and 13. Is there one of those you're not counting?

    Also, it's important to point out that the system itself was released into the public domain, not the games themselves.

    Does AirCars really count? Considering it was sold by mail order. And was it technically licensed by Atari? I don't remember it being licensed when I bought my cartridge back in the day, the first run. I know that it was so bad that even Atari wouldn't even publish it, but they might have assigned them an encryption code during development that made it possible to be played on a standard Jaguar before the Battlesphere folks finally cracked Atari's cart encryption.

    I cross referenced the list I found and Wikipedia's list. My lost has Air Cars but i didnt include Iron Soldier 2 as a cart because im trying to figure out whether or not it was actually sold to consumers as a cartridge in 1997.
