    I'm going to give a speech about the Wii basically. What I'm gonna be telling is first a bit of history, starting with the NES, and then working my way up to Wii and explain why it's different from the other consoles. Since I'm limited to 8 minutes, aside from Nintendo I'm only mentioning Sony, and I'm not mentioning handhelds.

    I'm going to be using PowerPoint so I want some nice high-res original color pictures of all the consoles on a white background, as well as a similar picture of the controller. I should mention I'm preferably looking for Japanese versions of the console. Example: http://www.productwiki.com/upload/images/n...o_ds_lite11.jpg

    So far I've found NES + controller, SNES, PS2, GC, Wii. What I still need is pictures of this:

    - SNES controller FOUND! Thanks filozof!
    - Playstation FOUND! Thanks Thax!
    - Playstation controller FOUND! Thanks filozof!
    - Nintendo 64 FOUND! Thanks Thax!
    - Nintendo 64 controller FOUND! Thanks nintendofreak!

    Also, to show the progress in graphics, I wanted to show highres screenshots of the following games (already found Mario Bros):

    - Mario World found myself
    - Mario 64 found myself
    - Mario Sunshine found myself

    On top of that, I also wish I could find some of those action shots where people are playing Wii sports or maybe a high-res videoclip as demonstration. FOUND!

    Only two things left!

    I need a promotional picture of a middle aged or old person playing on a DS lite (preferably Brain Age)
    Also, a new request. I was thinking of showing the Wii Fit video but could only find a 320x240 version.

    Honestly, I've been looking for a while and only useful ones I could find were those 3:

    Best hi def Nintendo 64 pic I could find:

    I know they aren't exactly what you're looking for but both had the controllers so I thought you could use them. It's really hard to find just the controller for some reason.

    It's not really possible to find in-game screens with that quality though. I literally couldn't find any..

    EDIT: This might help too btw:

    @Nintendofreak: Thanks man. But the old people picture isn't showing up when I click on it. I'm gonna use the controller though!

    @filozof: Nice work! I'm still holding out for a better n64 pic, but the rest was usable. The pic of the old people playing is also good, but I think I need a few more and will decide what to use afterwards.

    This stuff is hard to find, isn't it? I was surprised myself! Please keep looking if you have the time!

    Edit: Those promotional pictures with old people playing come from E3 2006, right? Or was it E3 2005? I need more of those and higher res.

    Thanks. I somehow got the picture to work. I found some nice wii sports pictures on IGN of people playing the game. So, my priority now is to find a promotional picture of someone with a DS in their hands.

    Middle aged/old person playing brain age: there's at least 2 brilliant ones of a guy on http://www.touchgenerations.com , but the site's in flash so I don't know if you can get it from there directly.

    "Touch Generations" is the promotional name that Nintendo uses for the games that appeal to all age groups (Brain Training, Picross, etc.). So typing "Touch Generations" into google might turn up a few things...?

    (edit: there's another, mostly non-flash site at http://touchgenerations.com/enGB/home/home.php )

    Ok, so I gave my speech. It was a great success. I finished it off with a video of WiiFit. Thanks again for all the help. I would post my speech, but it's all written in Japanese [​IMG] I guess I could upload the powerpoint presentation since it's mostly pictures if anyone's interested.
