Not quite accurate, I think Atari were already well on the way down the toilet when they released the Jaguar. In a similar way to the CD32, it was a last ditch effort to make some money.
Although the Jag had a crippling HW bug and a terriable SDK is was quite a nice bit of HW and a lot of our fav games looked far better on it than on our Miggys.
