Console Wars

Growing up in the late '80s and early '90s certainly had its drawbacks — hair metal, hair styles in general, Hammer pants, etc. — but one thing you didn't miss out on is video games. With the NES firmly entrenched, upstart Sega released the Genesis, starting a bit-based battle that still rages today (albeit with different players). Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation takes a look at the, ahem, genesis of this rivalry through the lens of more than 200 interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, telling a fascinating story and making it a must-read for fans of retro gaming.
