Just to make it a bit easier:
Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4

I've lived through these days and I've read similar articles countless times. It still, almost, brings a tear to my eye.

Sega's history is so long and convoluted you'd need a sizeable book to fit it all in!

Wow! Very interesting reading so far, and I'm only up to part 2. The prologue alone was fascinating.

I've watched the video before. It's very sad and depressing.
