* BadExportForYou: 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.

** BEMANI cabinets at Round 1 US locations are Japan-region, and thus come with all the perks of playing with PASELI and drawbacks of playing with regular credits. The problem: ''no Round 1 location in the US has PASELI enabled'', meaning that, among other things, you can't get extra stages in ''IIDX'' or anti-GameOver insurance on games that offer it.

* NoExportForYou: If you were to make a pie chart of the number of BEMANI games released in Eastern and Southeast Asia and the number of BEMANI games released overseas, the result would be Pac-Man with a nearly-closed mouth. It got worse in 2012 when Konami started requiring BEMANI games to be connected to the [=eAMUSEMENT=] network, as well as making their games lease-only as part of the [=eAMUSEMENT=] Participation program rather than outright purchasable. As a result of all this, there are gamers in the West who have been big fans of Konami for decades, yet can't even name a single BEMANI game other than ''VideoGame/{{DanceDanceRevolution}}''. There are efforts to run a third-party clone of the [=eAMUSEMENT=] network, but see FanworkBan above for what this can lead to.

* 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.
