The target of Kodak had been expressed by the chairman as “To make Kodak do for photos what Apple does for music: help people to organize and manage their personal library of images. In an ideal world, consumers of the future will snap pictures on Kodak’s cameras, save them on its memory cards, put them on paper through its printers, and edit them on in-store digital kiosks.” Trying to catch the consumer in to a world of Kodak was not practically possible.

From that point forward Sega had discovered that their marketing and advertisements were crucial to their product’s overall sales performance in the market which led to their revised approach to expose their consoles and appeal to the consumer aggressively through social and cultural structures as well as releasing their consoles internationally. By 1989, Sega released their next console referred to as the Mega Drive in Japan and Sega Genesis in North America as a start of a new era for the company’s approach in attempt to compete with Nintendo’s second generation console, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) released in 1991.
