Once you watch it...after 7 days pass...you play SH2.

On a more serious note, interesting find, first time hearing about it. Sounds kind of weird actually, why bother making something so rare? Was it even meant for the public?

No, dude says he worked at a video game store and it was only a promo. I guess something like the video VHS promos they had in video stores, but advertising games. I had a friend who worked at a video rental store and I have a copy of "Dead Alive" which was a promo and had writing over the screen, meant to be played in store or watched by employees or something, I have a few like that. Haven't heard of this SH2 thing though, but I am imagining it must be something like that. Couldn't find any info though.

That post is from today, I will be waiting to see if he actually posts a video clip from it.

Nope but I'm definitely interested in seeing the content and if the person really wants to sell I think it would make a cool addition to my collection :) I just signed up on the forum to say as much haha

Yeah, I just randomly showed up on that forum looking for something completely different, never been there before, and that had been posted today. ^_^

Interested in at least finding out what's supposed to be on it though.

This is very intriguing. I love to get a look at it too.

So it seems. He said nothing more after that.

Disappointing. I wanted to see the video, or or accurately, what was on it.

Yeah, I hope so. It would at least be interesting to learn what it is.

I've bought this tape, pending he finds a VCR to check if it works. He's quite slow on responding and stuff, so may be a bit before I get it. I don't have a VCR at the moment, but one day I'll find out what's on it. So as long as I don't die in a horrible accident, it's "secure".

I would not expect much though, considering it's a retailer tape presumably for playing in shops around the release date. It's most likely just a common trailer.

Anybody still remember this? :)

The guy took 2-3 months to respond to every message, until he stopped completely. I tried again a few weeks ago, 8 months after I last heard from him, and suddenly I got a Paypal address and a shipping quote! I had the tape shipped to a friend of mine in Canada, and I'll get the tape myself when I return from Japan in about a month.

He uploaded a transfer a while back though, so you can watch the SH2 trailer on Youtube:

As expected from a trailer played in shops around the game's release, there's nothing unseen. But now you know. :)

1st thing came to me after reading these was.... The Ring! (Imagination running wild again!)

Reminds me of the (Ben's) ZELDA story [!] (I'm getting emotional just remembering that story!)
I wonder if I should start back to searching for it again. [?]
REVEAL SPOILER
It's still out there.... somewhere!
