Console Wars documentary coming to CBS All-Access
Back in 2014, author Blake J. Harris wrote about the 1990s battle between Nintendo and Sega in his book, Console Wars. The book followed Sega of America CEO Tom Kalinske and his efforts to take Sega to the top of the game industry. The book also details the internal friction between Sega of America and Sega of Japan, where Sony approached Sega for a collaboration. While Sega America was onboard, Sega Japan canceled the deal, thus the PlayStation was born and its success most likely had a factor in ending Sega’s console business.
Now Console Wars is being adapted into a documentary by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg for CBS All-Access premiering on September 23. There's also word the story is being developed into a scripted limited TV series. We’re not sure how deep the series will go into the history of the console wars, but we’ll be there watching on day one. Check out the trailer below:
