The Console Wars: Interview With Blake J. Harris

Dec 9, 2014

Any child of the 90’s knows what it meant to own a Sega Genesis. Or how it felt to open up your Christmas presents and not find a Super Nintendo hiding behind the wrapping paper. I had the pleasure of speaking with Blake J. Harris, the author of Console Wars – a book that describes not only the marketing battle between Sega and Nintendo, but also what happened behind the scenes at these corporations. Coming off of Sony’s first PlayStation Experience event in Las Vegas, I can’t help but feel we are seeing a whole new battle; the similarities are striking. If you have interest in learning more about the corporate side of the gaming industry, this is the best source available. You can purchase the book here at Amazon.

If you’d like to hear what Blake J. Harris has to say about the book and how he went about gathering data, you can listen here.
