The Rise and Fall of Sega Enterprises

One of the crew, Damien McFerran, has written an excellent article for Eurogamer about Sega’s rise to power in the 16-Bit era, and their subsequent fall from grace.

“The stars began to align with the 1989 launch of the Mega Drive – rechristened Genesis – in North America. After a encouraging start, the new console started to chip away at Nintendo’s previously unassailable lead.

Well worth a read for all Sega fans.
