I doubt this will get many reply, if any, as this place doesn't seem to be the hype of activity it once was .
Anyway, I recently purchased a book entitled console Wars by Blake Harris, with segments at the beginning from seth rogan and Evan Goldberg. This is a fantastic read (I haven't even finished it yet, as it's 558 pages!) as it's a great insight into the boffins at sega and Nintendo during the 90's and the evolution of video games and the rise and fall of Sega. The back reads:
"in 1990 nintendo had a near monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival at sega of Tom kalinske, a man who knew nothing about video games but everything about fighting uphill battles. His ruthlessly unconventional tactics, combined with the bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed sega and eventually led to a David and goliath showdown with rival nintendo. The battle was vicious, relentless and highly profitable, a conflict that pitched brother against brother, kid against adult, sonic against Mario, and the US. against Japan."
Has anybody else read this book? What are thoughts on it? Personally I found it thoroughly enjoyable so far, and I highly recommend this title .
