Go back in time with this awesome Hideki Sato interview from 1998

Shmuplations, a wonderful website (I literally only discovered just now), which translates developer interviews, has posted up a cracking interview from 1998 with Hideki Sato.

For those who don’t know, Hideki Sato ran Sega’s console R&D during the company’s booming 16-bit era and later became SEGA’s President in 2002.

According to Shmuplations, this developer interview was originally featured in the November 1998 issue of Famitsu DC, and later recompiled for the 2001 Sega Consumer History book.

The interview looks at SEGA’s hardware history – focusing on the (then) new Dreamcast console and previous products in SEGA’s gaming catalogue.

It gives a really interesting insight into the development that went on behind the scenes, particularly with the Dreamcast and the decisions the company ultimately made when making each console. It’s also a reminder of what could have been with the Dreamcast…

I’m the European Editor of SEGA Nerds and co-founder of the original SEGA Nerds website with Chris back in 2004 or 2005 (genuinely can’t remember which year it was now!).

I’ve been a SEGA fan pretty much all my gaming life – though I am also SEGA Nerds’ resident Microsoft fanboy (well, every site needs one) and since SEGA went third party, I guess it’s now ok to admit that I like Nintendo and Sony too :0)

I’m also the Content Manager of the big data company, Digital Contact Ltd, in the UK: http://digitalcontact.co.uk/company/team/
