DEMO DISC VOL 1
Note that the Sonic Adventure Autodemo's serial number is 610-2079 with the time stamp being (1998-10-16). While the Autodemo was the next promotional disc for SEGA to produce, it's no surprise that the Autodemo was all set and ready well before the Dreamcast Promotion Disk as the Autodemo was simply the TGS version with additional coding.
As I suspected, the Dreamcast Promotion Disk contained nothing more but a high quality video showcasing the Dreamcast and some of the games that were coming out for it. However, it wasn't a complete disappointment. Apart from having a high quality video of these games in action (some of which were still in their development stages), there was this lovely gem which we've never seen before.
Look forward to whoever can provide either a youtube version or download of this dreamcast video. In any case, enjoy!
Apart from recently acquiring some Japanese SEGA Promotional VHS tapes which I talked about [here], I've also recently acquired this little oddity. All of which have been shipped out and are on their way as we speak.
There's very little info about it apart from what's posted [here] (that's who I bought it from). The model number is 610-7027. According to [this], it's the second promotional disc that was released (the first being Dream Passport) followed by a series of promotional discs called Dream Preview (model numbers are 610-7027-00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05 and 06) which I'm still after. Next after that was the Sonic Adventure Autodemo (model number is 610-7029). If this disc is anything like the Dream Preview discs given their model numbers, it'll most likely have preview videos and not actual game data. At least that's what one person who had a Dream Preview disc said [here].
I noticed under "Contents", it mentions something about Sonic Adventure. I go into all the details about it [here]. But like I said there, even if this disc only has preview videos, there's still plenty to take from this disc. We'll have raw clean crisp clear version of these preview videos straight from the GD-ROM. We'll have more information about this mysterious Dreamcast promotional disc in general and it's another one to cross off SEGA Retro's hit list [here].
For those who are curious, the VHS tapes costed £19.25 + £12.81 for fees and shipping charges within Japan. The Promotional disc costed £132.76 + £23.71 for fees and shipping charges within Japan. International shipping and packaging for all the items costed £38.14. Giving me a grand total of £226.67 for the whole thing. That's not including any tools I still need to get and the import charges which I'm dreading. Did I invest more than I should have on these items? It's debatable. Will the outcome be very rewarding regardless of how much was spent? Very much so.
If it's alright, I would like to do a little donation for this Retro exclusive. Not looking for the whole thing to be funded, but if anyone could chip in a little for the fees, charges, shipping, packaging, etc. That would great. Let's face it, if the fees and shipping charges don't finish me off, the import charges will. I'm looking around £75 in donations. My PayPal address is: [email protected]
tl;dr - Found rare and unusual Japanese SEGA/Sonic stuff. Would like to do a donation (target being around £75). My PayPal address is: [email protected]
