Unused Songs

Left in the PlayStation 3 version are text strings for songs that are not used in the game, but were once planned. Some of them got replaced with another song from that group.

Version Differences


The original version of the game allows the player to take photographs called "Dreamshots" and post them to their wall menu. The Remastered version removes the Dreamshot feature but still allows the player to access the photo mode, relying on the built-in share features of eighth generation consoles for sharing content instead.
