Added DiffLines:

** Jason was originally written as the kidnap victim, while Shaun was the one to die in the prologue. They were flipped around during development. Jason was also intended to be a younger child and his death was originally more graphic, but due to complaints by Sony, Jason was aged up and his death scene toned down.

** There were some scenes that would have elaborated onto some plot threads but were scrapped in the final game. The biggest cuts were interactive sequences for Ethan Mars's blackouts, involving being flooded in water and haunted by Jason. At the end, it would have been revealed that [[spoiler: Ethan and the Origami Killer grew some kind of psychic link when Ethan was knocked into a coma at the beginning of the game]]. While the blackouts were kept, these scenes were removed due to David Cage feeling that they were too supernatural for the tone of the story, and deciding that the PlotHole caused by its removal [[VoodooShark was better than the explanation]].
** There was also going to be scenes explaining why Madison Paige suffers from insomnia. She was originally meant to have been a war correspondent during the WarOnTerror and had witnessed (and been nearly killed by) a terrorist bombing attack she was unable to prevent, leaving her with PTSD. This was replaced by the events shown in the Taxidermist episode.
