Nintendo/Sony related:

Basically the entirety of the Internet and all gaming publications can be summed up by this link. All Sony fans have done is swap 'Nintendo' for 'Sony' and vice-versa, and all other console manufacturers names remain the same. It is the proliferation of this perspective that has caused this web page's creation.

It is worth noting that the Monopoly advocated here severely affected the Sega Master System, TurboGrafx -16, and caused Sega to be running in the red by the end of the Genesis days, for having to aggressively market the Genesis to compete against Nintendo's monopoly. Similarly, Sony's virtual monopoly has negatively affected the, Sega Dreamcast, Microsoft Xbox, and Nintendo Gamecube's sales and third party support.

Great fan site with hardware info on all of Sega's consoles, development docs, game lists, freeware roms, emulator updates and more.

Sam Pettus' Sega Base

Somewhat dramatized account of Magazine Hype and Sega's own internal politics surrounding every Sega console's development and release, and eventual discontinuation. It is this perspective that most of the Internet and gaming media today is operating from when they mention Sega. Meaning that they are not coming from a gaming perspective, but from a financial-political perspective when they mention Sega "failing" at anything.
