Console Wars[0] was a good book about this. Mostly centers around Sega, but the development of the PlayStation is a major topic covered as well.

I think when people say "Console War" they're probably specifically referring to SNES vs Genesis during the 90s. Plus there's a book titled Consoles Wars about that very subject. And said console war even inspired a manga/anime series.

Though there's always been "console wars" since the beginning of the medium. Atari vs. everyone. Nintendo vs. Sega. Nintendo vs. Sony (and later vs. Microsoft).

Console Wars was very interesting learning about Nintendo and Sega during the 80s and 90s.

Another book (also great audiobook) I'd suggest is Console Wars. I've listened to that audiobook just as much as Masters of Doom. It tells the story of Sega vs. Nintendo in the 80s/90s.
