Before Xbox vs. Playstation, there was Nintendo vs. Sega. Following the success of The Accidental Billionaires and Moneyball comes Console Wars—a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry.
Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Tom Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader. It’s the story of how a humble family man, with an extraordinary imagination and a gift for turning problems into competitive advantages, inspired a team of underdogs to slay a giant and, as a result, birth a $60 billion dollar industry.
With a foreword by Seth Rogen and Even Goldberg, Console Wars by Blake J. Harris is on sale May 20th. Pre-order your copy now.
