** In most countries where ''[=DanceDanceRevolution=] A'' is available, you have to pay a surcharge for Premium mode (which unlocks extra modifiers and guarantees a full set of stages even if you fail all of them). For the North American version, however, Konami mandates that Premium cost the same as standard; the only catch being that you need an [=eAMUSEMENT=] card like in other regions.

** The Japanese version of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' allows Psycho Mantis to make some remarks on Suikoden, [=PoiPoi=], Tokimeki Memorial, Policenauts and Snatcher, to name a few, if they are on your memory card.

** The item in question is a bodybuilder card featuring [[MythologyGag Meiyuan,]] which upon obtaining it and having the other bodybuilder cards, would allow the Magimel brothers to make an "invisible dress" for Gepetto's doll. Apparently, Midway didn't want to promote LoliCon, even though said loli in question is a lifeless puppet with no primary sexual characteristics.
