Item specifics

This is the Holy Grail of Jaguar Collecting. There are only 2 working Jaguar VR Headsets known to be in worldwide existence, all others were destroyed shortly after Atari merged with JTS back in 1996. This is the first time EVER that a working Jaguar VR Headset has been put onto Ebay. Many years ago there was a non-working blue/gray mock-up that was sold. This setup is the Red/Gray Low Resolution Setup. It is also the ONLY Atari VR Headset that has the Atari Jaguar Logo and markings on the Headset which is really cool, it can also be seen in a few old Atari videos and displays and was in some old gaming magazines and was at some gaming conventions back in the 1990's at the Atari booth. This Headset has been passed down from Private Collectors over the years and now you have a once in a lifetime chance to own a piece of the Atari Jaguar History. There are also 2 non-working Mock-ups(red/gray&blue/gray) and a working blue/gray high resolution setup known to exist.

Since it was in it's Prototype stage and was eventually dropped for the higher resolution Blue/Gray set-up it does have a few minor issues from time to time. I have replaced the original ribbon cable connector that connects the Jaguar console to the VR tracker, there are now 3 new spare connectors that make a huge difference. Sometimes the headset shows a double screen when looking through the Headset, without taking it apart I haven't been able to adjust this issue, it seems minor like maybe a short in a wire ,but not being an expert I didn't want to open it up and possibly ruin it since it is so expensive and unique. It takes a lot of patience to get it running and I have included set-up and connection instructions to help.The tracker uses infra-red tracking,so the Headset must face the tracker when its being used. You will need an Atari Jaguar console with hookups and a working controller and also an extra power supply for the tracker( It must be an official Jaguar power supply or else you will run the risk ruining the tracker). You will also need a Scart connector to RGB monitor if you are using an Atari SC1435 Monitor. The only game released that works with the VR setup is Missile Command 3D which is included boxed and complete. Zone Hunter was rumored complete but hasn't been found aside from a useless dead Alpine Board long ago. Also included in this lot is a prototype Space Joystick PCB and a Jaguar VR gun and a few other items listed below. Its in pretty good condition overall for what it is, but there are a few scuffs and marks on the headset and tracker, nothing is broken, its very fragile and needs TLC. It does work once its setup correctly, sometimes not the best, sometimes it's fine. It is a prototype and it's being sold as-is, no refunds and no returns will be accepted, all sales are final. I usually only ship to the United States but if you are overseas or have zero feedback contact me first and I may be able to ship to you depending.

I originally bought this Jaguar VR with the intent on taking it to gaming conventions for others to see and enjoy,sadly it never really happened the way I wanted and it's just collecting dust in the closet. I'm not very active in the Jaguar community much anymore and I really need to let this go due to financial reasons. Its the last piece of what was my enormous Jaguar collection. I'm starting the bid for much less then what I paid for it and I really hope it goes to a great home, it should probably be in a Videogame Museum.
