    ok, so i decided to go through my room today in sheer boredom...

    and i found some cool classic stuff...
    some snes games, some realy old game manuals, a luigi doll... and a "Donkey Kong Country EXPOSED" video tape.
    i thought to myself... wow... this tape is realy old and maybe even rare.

    so i did some research and found this: http://www.pressthebuttons.com/2006/08/index.html
    its a realy old, beta version of donkey kong, nintendo promo video.

    i have the box and the tape in perfect condition, and i cant find a single one on ebay to see how much it would be (or how rare)
    heres the video if you want to see it: http://youtube.com/watch?v=stc0RuRv2RA

    so i think im pretty lucky : )
    what do you guys think?

    I've got two copies. I don't think it's rare, but it is a great video.

    Yeah I had that video or a very similar one on VHS, can't remember where I got it from mind you. It's not rare but a nice nostlgia trip nonetheless. I also had a lot of cheat/tips videos... there was a really great one by NMS (official Nintendo mag 'Nintendo Magazine System') of StreetFighter II that covered the game, bosses and moves in depth. EDIT - not as cool as I remember it but being but here's the vid.

    Yeah. I think I had this video too. If I remember correctly, I got it with one issue of Nintendo Power. Great upload though.

    Edit: Oh! I also think that I remember seeing this at the videogame kiosks that they set up in the electronics departments of stores. Anybody else remember that.

    I also have that tape. At the end of it, we catch a glimpse of Killer instinct running on the arcade board wich was supposedly the same as the N64 (unreleased then).

    That was the highlight of this video.

    Donkey Kong Country was amazing for it's time. Heck, it still looks amazing now.

    EDIT: I wish I was subscribed to Nintendo Power back then, all kinds of goodies were given out.
