  • You know that awesome Resident Evil 2 commercial shot by George Romero that only played in Japan? Blame star Brad Renfro's contract, which stipulated his work on the ad couldn't be seen outside of the land of the rising sun. Thanks, Brad...
  • The Parasite Eve preview states the game takes place across eight days. It actually covers only six days.
  • The International Previews section refers to Brave Fencer Musashiden as "Brave Fencer Musashinden".
