Considering the huge leaps made by competitive gaming in the last year with EVO and MLG, it’s incredible to watch this footage – a news report on the 1982 Australian Colecovision Championship, complete with a strange middle-aged man claiming he is Australia’s first video game super hero. This is classic stuff.

Thanks to Matt Keller over at Retro Gaming Australia for digging it up. Incredible find!
