* UncreditedRole: In late 2017, multiple original songs starting being credited to "BEMANI Sound Team" rather than the actual contributing artist. This was later sorta-reversed, with artists now being credited as "BEMANI Sound Team [='=]''(artist)''[='=]".

*** As of 12/20/2017, it seems that both parties have come to a compromise. While the Bemani Sound Team labeling is still in effect, this is now followed by the actual artist who made the song. [[https://twitter.com/pmdream/status/943101876911751168 Example]]

** Arcade BEMANI games are released not only in Japan, but also other Asian regions, such as South Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, only the Korean versions are translated; players in other non-Japanese [=eAMUSEMENT=] regions don't get translated versions.

** Arcade BEMANI games are released not only in Japan, but also other Asian regions, such as South Korea, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. Unfortunately, only the Korean versions are translated; players in other non-Japanese [=eAMUSEMENT=] regions don't get translated versions. The sole exception is Dance Dance Revolution, which gets a decent amount of English-language arcade releases here and there.



* FanworkBan: From 2011 to 2015, the online service ''Programmed World'' allowed players on current BEMANI cabinets in [[NoExportForYou countries not served by the eAMUSEMENT network]] to enjoy functions and features that are otherwise exclusive to [=eA=]-connected machines. Unfortunately, in March 2015, Konami sent a cease-and-desist order to arcades running PW-connected cabinets as well as the PW staff, forcing the service to go offline. It is speculated that Konami is planning to expand [=eAMUSEMENT=] service to outside of Eastern and Southeast Asia, as on the same weekend, the [=eAMUSEMENT=] website [[https://twitter.com/polyphonicroom/status/574415118366175232 announced plans to provide global website service to players outside of Japan]], although whether this will actually lead to global [=eAMUSEMENT=] service has yet to be seen. (Hint: it won't.)

* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: At least ''[=DanceEvolution=] Arcade'' gets offline kits. As for ''Miraidagakki''? There's no legal way to play it anymore, and ''[=BeatStream=]'' will fall to the same fate on September 1, 2017.

** In October 2017, it was increasingly speculated that the Bemani division -- specifically, the staff musicians -- was facing internal issues [[HistoryRepeats not unlike]] what had happened to Creator/HideoKojima prior to the release of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolidV''. A telltale sign that something was amiss was the sudden [[UnPerson removal]] of references to artists from promotional material and artwork in certain locations. Then, the song information page for "GERBERA" on the ''Sound Voltex'' website removed the reference to TAG and credited it to "BEMANI Sound Team" instead. Several new songs added to various Bemani games (including the aforementioned "GERBERA") in early-November were similarly credited to "BEMANI Sound Team" rather than an individual artist. However, one of them -- "Mychronicle" on ''Pop'n music'' -- has an EasterEgg keysound at the end with various voices saying "[=Des-ROW!=]"; it's not known if this was in the song from the beginning or was snuck in as a subtle acknowledgement that something was wrong.
