GENERATION SEGA - VOL. 1

Régis Monterrin



 

The history of SEGA is one of the most complex, rich and dense in the entire video game industry! But in Génération SEGA , Régis Monterrin offers you some insight to finally see things more clearly. The result of more than ten years of research and investigation, this book will take you on a journey between New York, Hawaii, Tokyo, Brussels and also Paris. You will thus discover the true origins of SEGA, but also how the firm imposed itself in France, thanks to numerous exclusive interviews with actors of the time.


Unique fact: the book is based on exceptional testimonies (descendants, historical actors, archival documents...) and also focuses, for the first time, on the birth and emergence of SEGA Europe and SEGA France . Through this chronological account, the reader will therefore discover how the Japanese giant shaped its success on the Old Continent. The book also sheds light on the past of one of the pillars of the company, the American Irving Bromberg, who started out in the 1920s in the automobile industry.

176 pages filled with unpublished visual documents (archive photos, censored advertisements...).
