Me and Nace10 (from http://www.brickarchives.wordpress.com/ ) were speaking about the new relationship between SEGA and Nintendo , and we spoke of how they hated each other before.
We talked about how amazing it was that SEGA and Nintendo were in a constant battle during the 90’s (“The Console Wars”) but are now joined to make games for Mario’s commercial arch-nemesis , SONIC. During the Console Wars , SEGA had the 16-bit Genesis that immediately took over the 8-bit NES (and , thus , Genesis does what Nintendon’t). It’s higher definition graphics and hit game Sonic the Hedgehog rocketed the system into the record books , and right into Nintendo’s territory. Nintendo responded with the Super Nintendo , a 16-bit console equal to the Genesis. But , SEGA already secured their place. Nintendo eventually took over with the Nintendo 64 , with 64-bit graphics that overran the 32-bit Saturn , one year after the Saturn’s creation. Shortly after , SEGA’s Dreamcast over-took Nintendo , but it faced another enemy: Playstation 2. At the time it came out , SEGA stopped making systems completely , and now they just make games.
Now that Sega and Nintendo (unofficially Segtindo) have joined , maybe we can expect a new system! With two of the best video game console companies joined , there is no limit to the possibilities.
I would like to take a moment to say thank you to the viewers that flooded in when I posted about Segtindo . I was one of the first people to blog about it , and it gained me tons of viewers and comments. Thank you guys , please comment , GOD BLESS!
