Shocking loss. I don't know the details except it happened suddenly.
What came after the Jaguar was the PS1 which for all it's greatness, ushered in corporate development and with it the bleached, repetitive, bland titles which for the most part we're still playing today. - David Wightman

He was Mr. Atari. I don't think anyone was more Mr Atari than him except Nolan Bushnell.

Very sad and terrible loss. Prayers for his family and all those affected by his sudden passing.
Much respect to him and his contributions to the Atari legacy/scene. He will be sorely missed.
