Shmuplations releases translated interview with SEGA of Japan hardware legend Hideki Sato

SegaHardware

Thanks to shmuplations.com, we now have the full interview with SEGA of Japan’s Hideki Sato, the legend who helmed SEGA’s console R&D during the 16-bit era and later became the company president in 2002. The interview initially appeared in the Japanese publication Famitsu DC in 1998 and was later republished in the 2001 “SEGA Consumer History” book. Several hardcore fans, myself included, have that book in their collection, but were unable to read the interview due to the obvious language barrier. Now we have the whole thing in english! Check out the full translated interview here. The interview is in two parts, with part one covering the Dreamcast and part two covering past hardware.

Thanks shmuplations.com!

    I was pretty excited by the title, I thought he may have given a recent interview.
    That said, it should still be a nice read, but it is almost 20 years old.

    Sega are still hardware company, they still make their own consoles, just not the home series of consoles.
