Thoughts on book Console Wars by Blake J Harris

Erik - Good Book. Highlights what Sega did right and wrong, while showing readers many of the things Nintendo clings to today are practices they used 30 years ago.

John - Great book, shows the mistakes that both Nintendo and Sega did to allow Sony to dominate the late 90's. It really shows how Sega of Japan is what killed Sega and they pretty much continue to do that today.
