The Great Video Game Crash Part 1
TCW Podcast Episode 019 - The Great Video Game Crash Part 1
We go over the lead up to the crash, and the unique situation that caused it. We touch on who to blame for the crash. Is it all Atari's fault? What about retailers, and distributers? There is also the fly by night operations that could have been the straw that broke the camel's back. We cover this and more in part one!
