Amazon is offering the Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation Kindle e-book for $1.99 right now. It regularly sells for $15 on Kindle and this is the lowest price we have tracked on it.
Written by Blake J. Harris, it follows the story of the 1990’s gaming giants. More specifically, Sega’s battle with Nintendo for the hearts and minds of gamers everywhere:
Following the success of The Accidental Billionaires and Moneyball comes Console Wars—a mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes business thriller that chronicles how Sega, a small, scrappy gaming company led by an unlikely visionary and a team of rebels, took on the juggernaut Nintendo and revolutionized the video game industry.
In 1990, Nintendo had a virtual monopoly on the video game industry. Sega, on the other hand, was just a faltering arcade company with big aspirations and even bigger personalities. But that would all change with the arrival of Tom Kalinske, a man who knew nothing about videogames and everything about fighting uphill battles. His unconventional tactics, combined with the blood, sweat and bold ideas of his renegade employees, transformed Sega and eventually led to a ruthless David-and-Goliath showdown with rival Nintendo.
