Missing Intro

For some reason, the scene at the start of the game of Pac-Man falling down to Bot Boneyard is missing in the NTSC GameCube version. This was fixed in the PAL release.

Incorrect Portrait

On the GameCube and Xbox versions, during Orson's final line in Gogekka Central, the subtitles incorrectly use the portrait for the Gogekka construction worker. The Windows, PlayStation Portable, and PlayStation 2 versions use the correct portrait.

Pinky Eye Color Subtitle Oddity

The cutscenes that are rendered in engine in the console versions are presented as FMV's in the PlayStation Portable version. Due to the subtitles being baked into the video files, separate FMV's are used depending if subtitles are turned on or off. As a result, the cutscenes may differ slightly. The cutscene where Pinky is introduced has a strange quirk where her eye color changes depending on the setting. They are black with subtitles off, and grey with subtitles on.

Her eyes are usually black on PlayStation 2 and grey in all other versions. The video file with subtitles on resembles the Xbox version with the grey eyes and unanimated sludge.
