Hmmm...
To do:
Good chance there's a lot more debugging stuff lying around.

The Sims 2 Pets is the fifth console entry in the series, based off the Windows expansion pack that focuses on pets. It's also notable for being the first Sims game on consoles that waters a lot of stuff down including the removal of death and fears, a simpler social system, lack of story mode and some other tidbits. It was also the first Sims console game not to be released on the Xbox, the last to be released on the Nintendo GameCube and the first to be released on the Nintendo Wii.

As this game was built off of The Sims 2 for consoles, it's safe to say most unused content would appear there. Although, most of the Urbz leftovers have been taken out likely due to make space.

Graphics for Xbox controller buttons can be found in the game, leftover from the previous console installment. It seems that an Xbox port of The Sims 2: Pets was once considered, but due to the Xbox 360 being released around the time and having drastically different hardware, it would've sold poorly.

EyeToy Leftovers

The PlayStation 2 version of the game and it's followup doesn't have EyeToy support, so the icons and funframes from the previous entry go unused. Strangely, the first funframe is missing.

Leftover Wants & Fears

As Fears were completely removed from the game, the leftover graphics for most of the Fears are present. There are even graphics for platinum and gold Wants aswell!

Unused Music

The Create-A-Sim, Neighborhood View and Build/Buy Mode music from the previous conosle installment are present in the files. They're also in The Sims 2: Castaway (PlayStation 2, Wii).

Unused Jingles

There are several jingles left over from The Sims 2. Also, some other sound effects like the social mode are missing, meaning it got scrapped very early in development.

Camera Debug Text

Some camera debugging info is present in SLUS_215.36 at 3F6EA8. It's unknown if it still can be accessed from the game.
