The Dodo plane that is always in the air back in Grand Theft Auto: Vice City is in this game. The DeadDodo is mentioned in handling file and and can be spawned with third-party trainers. However, simply spawning through it without further modifications will crash the game upon spawning. A Dodo can also be spawned with the debug menu and while it does not crash the game, it won't accelerate.
The Hunter attack helicopter is in the game as a leftover from Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, but is never used. It can be spawned during story mission Karmageddon by getting on top of the biggest pyramid opposite police station in Staunton Island and pressing L + Up + Select + Cross. If done correctly, a sound will be heard and the Hunter will be accessible on the helipad on top of Big Shot Casino.
The little toy copter from Vice City was to return, but was cut. It can still be spawned with the debug menu or trainers, but a mod needs to be installed in order to control it. Trying to enter it without further modification crashes the game.
The Bus from Grand Theft Auto III was most likely mean to return. However, it was disabled from spawning and can now only be spawned via the debug menu or trainers.
Another vehicle from Grand Theft Auto III. The vehicle is functional, but the texture mapping is rather buggy and always appears as a black paintjob.
An odd-looking vehicle that can only be found in the iOS/Android versions, which can be modded back into the game as it has the necessary filenames.
An unused and rather gory variant of the Leone Sentinel likely intended for The Made Man. In the final game, a regular Leone Sentinel is used instead.
- Toyota Supra: Interestingly, a Toyota Supra is listed in text files. It is unknown what its in-game name would be (assuming it would be changed), although the previous game's Jester did resemble a Toyota Supra.
- Subaru Impreza WRX: Just as interesting, a Subaru Impreza WRX is also listed in text files. It is unknown if this would be its name if it made it to the final, although the previous game's Sultan did resemble a Subaru Impreza.
- Dodo: Unlike the DeadDodo, this one will not crash the game upon spawning. However, it has no acceleration, making it undrivable.
Showcase The Weapon And Upload The Model From The Tear Gas.
Like most games from the Grand Theft Auto series Tear Gas is not available normally, but can be obtained through trainers.
Data for the scrapped returning weapon from Vice City can be found in the PlayStation 2 version, but only the texture and HUD icon remains. The icon interestingly contrasts with the other weapons in the game, signifying it may have been cut early in development.
Placeholder Loading Screens
Three placeholder loading screens which can only be found unused in the PlayStation 2 version.
Unused screens for a TV newscast about the closing/opening of the bridges are present on the PS2 disc.
Some leftover debug textures can be found on some .chk files in the PlayStation 2 version.
Early Map Icons
Early map icons for JD O'Toole, Salvatore Leone, Maria Latore and Leon McAffrey. Oddly, the early textures are named after Vice City characters, radar_diaz, radar_cortez, radar_lawyer and radar_kent, respectively.
Police boats are in the game, but never used by LCPD. However, unused quotes for the coast guard can be found in the files.
It seems that the player was originally going to have to pick up a change of clothes at Mr.Benz, instead of the safehouse.
~w~New outfits become available to the player during the game, and must be collected from Mr. Benz. ~w~Follow the ~h~Shirt blip~w~ on the radar to find ~h~Mr. Benz clothes shop.

Among the debug text above, the "Sick Fuck" strings from GTA 3 are present.
Sick Fuck Sick Fucker Sick Fuck Selected Sick Fucker Selected
Most likely an early name for the Rampages or something completely different.
Seems to be all that remains of a cut RC Car mission.
ENGLISH.gxt/ST_ASSI/Assasination contracts complete
It seems that the assassination missions from Vice City were going to return at one point.
Early Mission Complete Theme
An early Mission Complete theme is present on the disc. It's a clip from the intro cutscene of the game, with the sound effects from the cutscene still there, hinting that it might just have been a placeholder.
Vice City Leftovers
There's quite a few Vice City Leftovers to be found.
The radio stations and two assets are listed in ENGLISH.GXT among the Map Legends, oddly enough.
Wildstyle Radio Station Flash FM Radio Station KChat Radio Station Fever 105 Radio Station
VRock Radio Station VCPR Radio Station Espantoso Radio Station Emotion 98.3 Radio Station
Wave 103 Radio Station Sun Yard Strip Club
Accessible with the debug menu is this short test cutscene, cuttest. It uses a clip of audio from the beginning cutscene to the Biker Heat mission.
- Leon McAffrey's missions are labeled RAY1 to RAY5. Ray Machowski is his partner who was more prominently featured in Grand Theft Auto III.
- Between the Ma Cipriani missions Dead Meat (MAC4) and No Son of Mine (MAC5) is an additional mission Casa (MAC4_0). Nothing remains of it but the name, it could be a simple leftover however.

There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
The menu in the Japanese version uses different wording for its options. Additonally, subtitles are turned on by default in the Japanese version.
For the German version, many of the changes done were similar to that of Grand Theft Auto III. These include:
- Blood was removed, including bloodied tire tracks when driving over pedestrians.
- The ability to kick enemies when they are lying on the ground.
- The removal of headshots caused by the sniper rifle and katana.
- Pedestrians won't drop money when they are killed.
- The massacre minigame is removed.
- The statistic menu removes the body count numbers.
Early PSP versions of the game was notable for a buffer overflow exploit in the saved games, opening the floodgates of homebrew programs to be run using specially crafted saves by Fanjita and n00bz. Not only a new firmware was released to patch it (which turned out to be ineffectual for a while), the game was reissued with the exploit fixed; distinguishing fixed and original versions were noticeably difficult, likely to crack down the use of the exploit.
This was an important point in PSP homebrew history.
