He had a minor accident with another vehicle. When he went out to inspect the damage he was struck by a car.

He was also the man behind the Virtual Boy, which led to him eventually leaving Nintendo. No matter what success he had with the Game Boy, the VB failure put him in the doghouse. He was assigned to a banishment room (where he was given nothing to do, with the hope that he would resign).

A little off topic for the movie but...any way to get Blu-Rays of Dragon's Lair and Space Ace? I know they did a DVD version of them back in the early 2000s, but I would like to see a new transfer.

There are Blu-rays of them available, but they look to be out of print. There are PS3 versions as well, and the picture quality is very nice.

Or Trip Hawkin's 3DO or Atari's Jaguar.

I remember my Japanese friend had a PC Engine and how awestruck we were by Nectaris.

The really heated flame wars (that I remember) were the ones on Usenet between the N64 fans and the PSX fans. They also tented to be pretty one-sided, with the PSX fans generally winning.

I don't think they could bring that in under an NC-17 rating.

re: Console Wars (Sega vs. Nintendo story) coming to CBS All Access

CBS All Access is moving into feature documentaries for the first time with a film based on Blake J. Harris’ book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation. The SVOD service is also developing a limited series based on the source material.

The feature doc is produced in partnership with Legendary Television Studios and Oscar-winning documentarian Doug Blush. It is directed by Harris and Jonah Tulis and is being executive produced by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s Point Grey Productions and Scott Rudin Productions.

The limited series is being written by Mike Rosolio and Jordan Vogt-Roberts attached to direct. Point Grey’s President is also exec producing.

Julian Rosenberg from Circle of Confusion produces both alongside Tulis and Harris.

Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation, published by HarperCollins in 2014, is described as the mesmerizing, behind-the-scenes drama 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 this vein, someone should make The King of Kong into a limited series starring someone like Adam Samberg.

The movie is brilliant.

And yes, I meant Andy Samberg (I'm 50, cut me some slack ). Would make the perfect mini-series on HBO.

I will wait until this premieres and I can watch that and the twilight zone during a free preview window.

This just popped up for me on CBS All Access. It says that it premieres on September 23rd. Has this really been in the works for over 6 years?

Six years ago a feature film was announced. Then it turned into a mini series + a doc. I doubt the doc has taken that long.

Re: Console Wars (Sega vs. Nintendo story) coming to CBS All Access

Anyone watch this yet? I'm still working through "High Score" on Netflix and I was wondering how much of the same ground they cover and how they compare. The Console Wars movie is only and hour and half so it's about the length of two episodes of High Score.
