That's incredibly nice of you! It's fun to give stuff away (I gave away our old Gamecube in a "tell me why you should get it" contest on another board).
It might be easier to sort of "normalize" the responses if *you* choose one pic and let everyone write the caption. Just a suggestion (then it's more about the creativity of the caption, and not about searching the web for pics).
If you're using the purchase a VC for someone else, I'd assume the distribution will be based on the recipient (and not the purchaser), so I'd say you can buy a game for anyone regardless of region or PAL vs. NTSC, etc.
Take care ~
