Console Wars Documentary Premieres September 23
September 12, 2020
The long-gestating documentary based on friend-of-the-podcast Blake J. Harris' Console Wars is finally ready for its premiere. Set to debut on the CBS All Access streaming service on September 23, 2020, a trailer for the film was released yesterday that looks to keep the heart and soul of the book intact thanks to interviews with key figures from the Nintendo versus Sega battles of the 1990s including Howard Phillips, Peter Main, and Howard Lincoln on the Nintendo side and and Tom Kalinske, Shinobu Toyoda, Al Nilsen, Ellen Beth Van Buskirk, Paul Rioux, and Bill White from Team Sega. I absolutely loved the book. I've even given copies of it as gifts. Obviously I'm excited for the documentary. If you're a fan of gaming in the 1990s, you should be too. I'm certain we will discuss the film on the Power Button podcast shortly after its premiere.
