Nintendo Promotional Videos Acquired!

Recommended Posts

I won the following Nintendo promotional tapes on eBay today:

Donkey Kong Country

Nintendo 64

Starfox 64

Diddy Kong Racing

Banjo Kazooie

Check them out: nintendovids1rk4.jpgnintendovids2wh8.jpg\\

Although a couple of these are already available on YouTube I'd like to release them in better quality XviD files under the Retromags banner. It may be a month or so before these are released since I still have to pick up and install the capture card in addition to figuring out a couple of tricks like converting the Retromags.com banner into a 3 second video clip to start and end each video. Please let me know if you can give pointers on this.

The DKC video is from Sears but I'm 95% sure that it's the same thing that Nintendo Power sent out to subscribers. I'm very excited about both the DKC and th Nintendo 64">N64 videos because they are both the oldest and they are also unavailable on YouTube.

I'm glad that this part of the project is finally becoming a reality. If you know of or have access to any other promotional tapes for Nintendo or any other system that would qualify as "retro" (5+ years old) let me know and we'll try to get it released. :grin:

Cool, just be sure if you're going to release them on YouTube, watch out. Some butthole is going around reporting people.

I don't plan to release them on YouTube, only Bittorrent. Could you elaborate on this YouTube reporting?

I'm sure this goes without saying, but that box art would make a very nice addition to the torrent. :)
