Seems like Sony Pictures and The Social Network producer are developing a documentary and a feature film based on the popular book “Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation” (by Blake Harris). They are defining it as behind-the-scenes business thriller flick and this book follows the success of The Accidental Billionaires and Moneyball.
Description from the book’s Amazon page:
“Based on over two hundred interviews with former Sega and Nintendo employees, Console Wars is the underdog tale of how Kalinske miraculously turned an industry punchline into a market leader. It’s the story of how a humble family man, with an extraordinary imagination and a gift for turning problems into competitive advantages, inspired a team of underdogs to slay a giant and, as a result, birth a $60 billion dollar industry.”
Considering the success of Moneyball and The Social Network, expectations are huge for this.
