Post the apocalyptic battle of Heaven and Hell for the souls of Earth (This is the End), Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are setting their sights on a different battle – the one for the television screens of the ’90s, Sega vs Nintendo.
The film titled Console Wars, will be an adaption of the book Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo and the Battle that Defined a Generation, which traces the battle for console domination that the houses of Mario and Sonic undertook throughout the 90’s for console domination. Ironically it will be produced by Sony who’s Playstation was born after both Nintendo and Sega dropped the ball on consoles that played CDs and ended up taking the mantle as the number one selling console of that generation.
Rogen and Goldberg have created a stoner comedy empire with films like Superbad and Pineapple express. For some context to the console war of the 90’s, have a look at the video below (note Michael Jacksons: Moon Walker).
