Saving old VHS gaming videos from tape-rot

Filed under: General — Tags: , , , , , , , — Bryan @ 8:22 pm

I’ve been digging through all the old archive materials I have in storage from Game Zero and realized I have quite a few VHS tapes from publishers with all kinds of content on them from the mid 1990’s. I did a cursory check and found that quite a few of these videos are not actually on-line. So if you’re interested, stop on by the Game Zero channel I’ve setup on YouTube and browse through the growing library.

I’ve already posted a couple of things that turned out to be of interest to people. One of them was an video recording I made back in 1995 of an hour-and-a-half of gameplay of a beta release of Biohazard (Resident Evil).

I also discovered in one of the media b-rolls from Sega is a snippet of footage from SegaCD release Virtual VCR: Prince and the N.P.G. – Diamonds and Pearls… which to the best of my knowledge has no known footage on-line for it. I have even read speculation that it didn’t actually exist. Well, I can assure you it existed enough to be in this preview reel recorded for distribution at the 1993 Winter CES. I can only imagine the title was scrapped due to the feud with Warner Bros which led to him changing his name that very year.

Share and Enjoy
