    Seth Rogen is making a movie about Sega vs. Nintendo, and it's being optioned by Sony.
    It's based on this upcoming book, which he foreworded.
    I am so confused.

    making cool music no one gives a shit about
    This is going to be great. This Is The End had me roaring, so more movies directed by these guys is fine by me.

    I assume this is just going to focus on the USA then, as this line is only true for that territory.

    Jack shit.
    I wonder how much misinformation is in this movie then. I was thinking this was a documentary before reading that summary.

    I mean, that summary already says that the Genrsis came out in 1990 (apparently) and that it was "US vs. Japan" (I don't get this line).

    That's the weird part. If what the press release says is accurate, there is a movie, which Rogen is directing and the book writer is producing, and a documentary, which their roles are reversed. So it sounds like there's going to be a dramatization of the events version, kind of like that Jobs movie, and a more informative version based on the same material. Strange approach, but the "over two hundred" interviews the writer conducted can't be too far off base.

    It's wiki time. There's no need to be afraid.
    I wish they wouldn't.

    There's already too much misinformation already - an entire generation of schoolkids think that Nintendo was relevant in the UK, and it means as a nation we're sleepwalking into forgetting our entire home computing heritage!



    Also even in the US, events after 1993 get a bit muddled. The Super Nintendo starts throwing some punches but some don't land until after the Sega Saturn. So it's really difficult to judge success and discover which console "won". Except in non-US, non-Japanese regions where it was a Sega walkover.

    Welcome to every biopic/movie based on true events movie ever made.

    I think nothing but good can come from this. I know that personally, I always fact-check after seeing a "true story," and I know many others do too. If anything, this will help people get more educated, and maybe boost some Sega sales in the meantime.

    Get ready for the price of the Genesis to increase exponentially. All the kids that weren't part of this will buy a Genesis because its hip and cool.
