The 2014 book, like a novel, but telling real events, is an entertaining take on Nintendo's epic battle with Sega to sell consoles in the 90's. It is also controversial for Harri's use of fictional dialogue based on true interviews with key people. The AV club wrote at that time that "innovation and the company's fault in the Sega-Nintendo collision is so entertaining that Harris's functional prose still tells a lively story."
Rogen and Goldberg were originally ready to make a film adaptation of the book in 2014 and a documentary was also allegedly in the works. TV seems to be the wisest choice for such a project, giving the events – which happened over many years – enough time to play. The pilot will be led by Skull IslandJordan Vogt-Roberts, and written by Mike Rosolio (American vandal). Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are aboard as leading manufacturers.
