Pokemon Yellow
If the player attempts to enter The Safari Zone without sufficient money to enter enough times, the worker who lets you in will take pity and allow you to enter with one safari ball. This was not an interaction in Pokemon Red & Blue and exists as a way to prevent the player from progressing in the game as a result of being unable to acquire enough money to get the HM03, surf, which is found in the park.

Ratchet & Clank
In the demo version, a cutscene in Blackwater City shows Darla Gratch says she's reporting for "Channel 64 News", but her microphone has a 2 on it. In the official release version, her small dialogue was change to "Channel 2 News", but her mouth doesn't match the words she says.

Michael Jackson's Moonwalker
Early pressings of the Genesis version included snippets from "Thriller," the title track of Jackson's bestselling 1982 album, that would play whenever a special attack was used in stages 3-1, 3-2, 3-3 and 5-3. However, because "Thriller" was written by Rod Temperton and not by Jackson himself, the quotations from this song were replaced with ones from "Billie Jean" (also from the "Thriller" album) and "Another Part of Me" (from the 1987 "Bad" album); in these later pressings, stages 3-1, 3-2, and 5-3 use "Another Part of Me", while 3-3 uses "Billie Jean".
