Trivia
  • Pay close attention to the Gran Turismo video. In one of the shots, you see the Japanese equivalent of a Crash Bandicoot poster.

  • This is the infamous "MST3K" issue where the cast members were given earlier opening movies from past Underground discs and get to rip them apart in true MST3K fashion. 

  • Puyo Puyo Sun, though never released in America on the PlayStation, was brought over on the Genesis under the disguise of Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine.


  • During the Q+A session, when the beta-tester is playing Einhander, you see two US Debug systems with the original Dual Analog controller in the player's hands.
