The infamous Red LED lights that surround the 360's power button actually represent different problems depending on how many are alight. One red light meant a hardware failure. Two red lights signify overheating. Three red lights meant a general hardware failure, and four red lights meant and AV cable error. The notorious "Red Ring of Death" is actually, contrary to it's name, a 3-Light problem (General Hardware Failure).

Winning in-game the Happy Lucky Lottery isn't actually based on luck at all but on the date from when you bought the ticket based off of the GameCube's internal clock. The prizes are as follow: 4th prize is anywhere between 4 to 10 days, 3rd prize is 25 to 35 days, 2nd prize is 85 to 115 days, and 1st prize is 335 to 395 days. If you change the system's clock to a day prior and went back to talk to Lucky who runs the lottery, he'll know that the internal clock has been messed with. You can either admit to it or lie to not having tampered with it, however you'll need to pay 500 coins in order to reset the lottery, regardless. Daylight savings is not put into account. Buying a new ticket won't actually increase your chances of winning either but will instead reset the days back to 0 from when you bought it.

Resident Evil 2
In an interview, Noboru Sugimura stated that Leon was originally supposed to start out in civilian attire. There would've been a scene between him and Marvin at the police station where he'd change into his police uniform.

"It’s true that with Racoon City destroyed, the police wouldn’t be actively on duty, so there’d be no real need for Leon to change into his uniform… but we wanted to show his determination to protect both the city and his principles by having him change into his uniform regardless. It was a scene with a lot of meaning. Unfortunately, due to a problem with the CG it got cut."
