Console wars going right to the silver screen
If you had to choose one historical event of the gaming history to be turned into a book and a movie, you will probably choose the raging console wars between Sega and Nintendo that in the 80’s and 90’s made the industry grow in incredible ways and that gave us so many great games, an exhaustive race to overgrow their rival.
Blake Harris surely did think it, and so he wrote a book called “Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the battle that defined a generation“, who will be released at Americans bookstores this may, and next August in UK.
But not only that, Sony Pictures and Scott Rudin, of The Social Network and Moneyball fame, are on the works to bring the book into a movie, directed by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. Not much more is known, except that Blake Harris is making his own take of it too as a documentary film who will coexist with the hollywood movie made by Sonic Pictures.
So, would yo go to the cinema to see a movie about the Sega Vs Nintendo wars?
