Either that or, you know, it's just a bug. Apparently the game has a problem in which you cannot continue playin...

Sure, we've had plenty of screens from the game to look over, but footage has been few and far between.

Poor Sony. First we stole Crash Bandicoot, and now it's Taiko Drum Master, which previously appeared (outside of the arcade) on the PS2.
