Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle That Defined A Generation





I only heard about Console Wars on the recommendation from Neumatic and the fact that he was able to use Halt and Catch Fire as a prime example is what got me to check out the book. I do agree that it exactly like the series and more. You guys know that I'm a gamer through and through. I was raised on Arcade games and I've had a number of consoles over my lifetime: Atari 2600, Colecovision, Playstation 2 and Xbox 360. Ironically though, the two systems I've never owned or played is what this book is about: Nintendo Vs. Sega. Even though I was over and done with gaming during this particular time in history, I was aware of what was happening. It was unavoidable, the commercials were everywhere at the time. I'm glad I got a chance to catch up on the behind the scenes stuff as it was all new to me. I am looking forward to the eventual movie, but I really hope they take this serious. My concern is that since Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are exec producing it, they might have the idea to turn it into a dumb-down comedy. I hope it's more along the lines of.....Halt and Catch Fire. A good reason from end to end. Worth a Rent from the Library if you are into how business' are run or if you are a gamer.
