    Default A European look on the Sega VS Nintendo war by Kim Justice



    This is a nice change of pace from all the videos with the US point of view. Also this channel is great and massively underrated, you should check it out.

    A lot of this resonates with the Oceania region as well. I was actually on holiday in Europe xmas 92 when the SF2 release dropped there, and I was mesmerised by the in-store game setups where people could play these incredible new releases. Some of the most firmly etched memories of the trip actually. And it was the same across all the countries in Europe. Peoplr crowded around SNES units playing SF2.

    Yeah, but us Oceanians say Sei-ga. Sae-ga sounds like a child bumbling it to me!

    I thought the Brits originally did that "Seega" pronunciation as well. I remember a friend from England saying telling me was called "Seega" over there. This was around 1990, though, so maybe that was only prior to the influence of the Sonic intro voice.

    Neat video. The more perspectives from around the world, the better. As a North American I tried to follow the European market as well as I could back in the day. It was kind of frustrating having access to UK magazines like Sega Power but not having access to buying the SMS games we missed out on. At least with the C64 I managed to get some imports through the piracy scene.

    Nitpick - Alex Kidd in Shinobi World wasn't a PAL-exclusive.

    Everyone over here called it 'seega' even after the sonic sound clip. Most probably still say it like that. Fuckin backwards kiwis.

    About the Oceania market, have Australia and New Zealand always been pretty much the same for game releases or are there some intra-market differences? I read that John Sands released the Sega SC-3000 in Australia and Grandstand did in New Zealand. Any other differences? And I imagine Fiji didn't have much in terms of video game sales.

    I know Ozisoft did Sega distribution in the SMS era. Prior to the internet my only knowledge of that company was seeing their name on the C64 game A Journey to the Centre of the Earth.

    I've watched a couple of Kim's videos recently. They are pretty entertaining.

    I'll check it out when I get back in town.

    Kim Justice is one of the best youtubers at the minute tbh, her documentaries are basically full-length insights into gaming history worthy of actual television.

    The kinda thing i wish youtubers did more, but that requires actual research and dedication to the subject.
