I highly recommend the new 5-part documentary “Playing w/ Power” on Crackle (free), detailing on the competition faced by Nintendo over the decades and how they keep reinventing themselves to overcome the challenges. 1st ep was more about old history being a card and toy company, could start at Ep 2 too if too long. I couldn’t believe I finished all 5 eps in one sitting as it was very informative. As they say in the doc, Nintendo had created a monster (Playstation), and the war w/ Sony made the Nintendo/Sega rivalry seem trivial. so it’s a bit strange for Ken Kutaragi to downplay it like that. heck, there’s the joke commercial w/ Crash trolling the NoA HQ.
“The Father of PlayStation” Ken Kutaragi sat down with Katsuhiro Harada in the latest episode of his weekly talk show, Harada’s Bar. The two men shared stories on the past, present, and future of the video game industry. Among the topics were personal rumors, working with Nintendo, the importance of free publicity, and accepting change. We have summarized some of the highlights below.
