Minecraft

The feature to feed parrots cookies to breed and tame was removed in a patch due to outcry from the Minecraft community. In real-life, chocolate cookies can kill birds if fed to them and people felt that children who played the game would try to copy this. The feature was changed prior to the release of patch 1.12.

Feeding cookies to parrots was also a subtle reference to the song "Polly" by the band Nirvana.

Attachment
As a professed fan of the Banjo-Kaoozie series, Youtuber Jonathan Aryan "Jon" Jafari (Jontron) was originally going to voice a character for the game. Due to a controversy over his political views, however, Playtonic removed Jontron's voice from the game in a mandatory day-one update. He would have originally voiced a character stuck in an outhouse in the "Galleon Galaxy" level.

For Honor
As of March 2017, unlocking all of the in-game outfits, emotes and minor items would cost around $732. The cost for acquiring all of the items outraged the game's community prompting the game's director, Damien Kieken, to respond by stating "We never had an intention for you to unlock everything in the game. For us that doesn't really make any sense." He then compared the game to how in World of Warcraft and in any MOBA players would never try to unlock everything and just play one to three characters.

Sonic Adventure
Sonic Adventure had a limited edition release available two months before the release of the SEGA Dreamcast in North America.

Although those copies were never meant to make it into the hands of the public, the copies that did make it to the public usually are incomplete or have a Hollywood Video sticker on the top of the disc.

As a result of a sponsorship deal between the motor racing circuit Donington Park in Leicestershire, England and SEGA, the 1993 European Grand Prix was adorned with SEGA logos. Even the race itself was renamed the SEGA European Grand Prix.

Ayrton Senna won the rain-drenched event after passing four cars on the first lap and holding off his teammate Alain Prost through the race's length, and was presented a trophy which featured Sonic the Hedgehog. While the image of Senna holding this trophy was widely circulated around the Internet, it was unfortunately only a fake trophy used for a photo op. It's unknown what became of the Sonic trophy.

Console: GameCube
According to former Nintendo president Hiroshi Yamauchi, the GameCube's cheap price was the result of Nintendo's perception that gamers cared only about the games themselves, and that game consoles were just pieces of hardware that were required to play the games. As a result, Nintendo decided to make the GameCube's price significantly lower than the competition's in order to make the former's titles more accessible to consumers.

A pamphlet that came with King's Quest VI listed a bunch of radio stations that received the game's iconic song, "Girl in the Tower".
