MCV UK’s Christopher Dring takes us back to the very first E3 in 1995 and discovers that while the products may be more advanced, the industry is much the same.
In 1995, the incumbent Sega brought its next console, the Saturn, to E3. Sony, meanwhile, was the plucky challenger who would go on to steal the show with a new console it priced $100 cheaper than its rival.
The rest, of course, is history. Dring’s article brings a bygone era into the present with commentary from some of the industry’s then-biggest players, including former Sega America boss Tom Kalinske, and former PlayStation US boss Steve Race.
