Blake J. Harris is a writer and filmmaker based out of New York. In May of 2014, HarperCollins published his book, Console Wars: Sega, Nintendo, and the Battle that Defined a Generation, an insightful, behind-the-scenes look at the video game console battle between mighty Nintendo and Sega, the cunning upstart, in the late ’80s and early ’90s. Within its pages, Harris studies the people, products and strategic gambits that helped put Sega on the map and put a dent in Nintendo’s dominance.
Harris is currently co-directing the documentary based on his book, which is being produced by Scott Rudin, Seth Rogen, and Evan Goldberg. He will also serve as an executive producer on Sony’s feature-film adaptation of Console Wars.
