That was brilliant. Tricky game programmers!

I love cross reference throwbacks in games like this – plus Symphony of the Night was my favorite Castlevania game, nay, best game ever!

“Introduced in 1993, the 3DO was the first video game system to be based entirely on CD technology.” – VGFacts

“Due to South Korea banning Japanese cultural imports at the end of World War II, the Master System was distributed by South Korean company Samsung, and was named the Gam*Boy.
Samsung released many consoles in South Korea under alternate names, like the Game Boy, Genesis, NES, Game Gear, SNES and Nintendo 64.” –VGFacts

“Ironically, SEGA’s GD-Rom technology was created as DVDs were not available for SEGA, and they wanted to create a disc that would be hard for pirates to copy and use.
“Sega intended to use the format to curb piracy common to standard compact discs and to offer increased storage capacity. It is similar to the standard CD-ROM except that the pits on the disc are packed more closely together, resulting in a higher storage capacity: around 1.2 gigabytes, which is almost double the storage capacity of a typical CD”
The Dreamcast is infamous for being the easiest console to pirate games on.” – VGFacts
