Hey folks, I uploaded this old Japanese Dreamcast promo video from 1998 through my Patreon (which centers around providing better digitized rips of game video media to the net) that looks to have been sent out to consumers prior to the launch of the console there. There's about a minute of Sonic Adventure footage dating just ten days prior to the October 16, 1998 AutoDemo, if the date on the tape means anything. Without overselling or revealing too much of the specifics (since you pros would probably spot things for exact, near-missable details better than I could), the biggest thing I took away from this footage was the fact that SA1 was originally meant to run at 60FPS, a familiar fact to many here, but here we have another source to substantiate with. I really think this game looked better in motion than it did in the final version. It seems the 30FPS cap was implemented in the AD just shortly after this was cassette was produced. I have here a compilation of the pre-AutoDemo footage from the promo in this handy-dandy clip I uploaded, featuring Big's ass as the thumbnail. Some select screens follow: And check out some of these rough draft versions of the wallpapers they made before their final JP counterpoints. They were shown in the internet segment of the promo. Gamma's Dear My Friend note is kinda hostile. There's plenty of prerelease stuff of other games ranging from Blue Stinger to Geist Force, D2, and other games. There's surprisingly nothing on Resident Evil: Code Veronica, despite it being announced just two months prior! Hope this serves of some use here. As I mentioned in my Patreon post, there was actually a GD-ROM variant of this tape but has the obvious low bit-rate holding it back that analog media wouldn't innately have. Happy to supply what I hope is superior to that. =) EDIT: Actually according to Hidden Palace, that Promotion Disk was pressed on Oct. 22, 1998, which would date this VHS footage ahead by 16 days.
