Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are set to write and direct the upcoming film adaptation of Blake Harris’ behind-the-scenes drama, Console Wars. Sony Pictures and Scott Rudin are now reportedly acquiring the necessary assets to develop the film.
Console Wars is an underdog story revisiting the past showdown between the Nintendo and the then up-and-coming Sega Corporation. Harris referenced hundreds of old interviews to recap the historical corporate showdown as accurately as possible. The gaming industry grew from this ferocious competition to become the top grossing entertainment medium in the world.
Surely we all remember the Sega/SNES generation, right? It was the generation that bred the extremist we’ve now come to know as console fanboys, a generation that brought us Sonic the Hedgehog in his glory days before he decided it was too mainstream to be a console mascot. Damn it Sonic… All those years I stood up for you.
Which team were you on back during this time? #TeamSNES or #TeamGenesis? Let us know in the comments.
