  • The PS2 version is region-locked so that it plays the original soundtrack of Sonic the Hedgehog CD on a Japanese system; if it detects another region (even European), it defaults to the American soundtrack, and there is no in-game music selection. This is not the case for the GameCube release, which may have been done to save space.
  • The version of Sonic R in the GameCube release supports up to four players, whereas the PlayStation 2 version only supports up to two players.
  • SegaSonic the Hedgehog was initially planned as a title to be included in this compilation but was left out due to problems with emulating the game's original trackball control scheme.
  • Sonic Eraser was initially planned to be included in the compilation, but was not for unknown reasons.[citation needed]
    • Furthermore, three Mega Drive games from the Wonder Boy Series were also planned, but were not included for unknown reasons.
  • Two of the games not included (Sonic Eraser and Monster World IV) have a different color for the "MD" Symbol (the original "MD" is pink/purple, while the other is orange\red).
  • Knuckles' Chaotix was originally planned to be included in the compilation, but it was not due to the difficult nature of emulating the 32X software.
  • The song "Sonic 3 MegaD Mix" was included in the album, True Colors: The Best of Sonic the Hedgehog Part 2, unedited.
  • The Unlockable Demos are all from Sonic Mega Collection Plus, even though they are all still playable on the GameCube.
