To be honest I didint think it was a news worthy video, the only thing unique is some small segment about a dude making music for the vb

Btw whats that between 01:08-01:20? a demo for the vb no one has seen?

I think it's quite interesting and I really enjoyed watching it.

This is an example of what makes this video interesting. ;-) Not sure what it is, probably footage from unknown promotion video(s). Sequences from it were used in the Japanese system commercials:

What was really interesting is watching English being translated from German from Japanese. Why can't the world just speak one singular language?! Well, anyway, what was the last game in that report? It looked like Stunt Racer FX for the Super Nintendo, but with updated graphics?
