Console Wars Trailer

"They were furious with us!" "I did not expect the US Congress to get involved." A video game war! CBS All Access has released an official trailer for a documentary titled Console Wars, from filmmakers Blake J. Harris & Jonah Tulis. This was set to premiere at this year's SXSW Film Festival, and will next launch on the CBS streaming service later this month. In 1990, SEGA, a fledgling arcade company assembled a team of misfits to take on the greatest video game company in the world, Nintendo. It was a once-in-a-lifetime, no-holds-barred conflict that pit brother against brother, kids against grownups, Sonic against Mario, and also uniquely American capitalism against centuries-old Japanese tradition. For the first time ever, the men and women who fought on the front lines for Sega and Nintendo discuss this battle that defined a generation. Executive produced by Seth Rogen & Evan Goldberg. This sounds and looks radical! Dig the 8-bit graphics.

Here's the first official trailer for Harris & Tulis' doc series Console Wars, direct from YouTube:
