Corrected entry: How come people using the OASIS have their haptics on full effect for battle? Couldn't they just disable, or literally cut out the haptics during battle to avoid feeling pain? When fighting in the OASIS, the "pain" is really your own suit hitting you, so why hasn't anyone just disabled them?
Corrected entry: At the end, when he's in the room where Halliday grew up, with the younger version of Halliday, Young Halliday is playing Yar's Revenge with what appears to be an Intellivision and Intellivision controller. Yar's Revenge was an Atari game.
Corrected entry: When Aech is using the Halo Assault Rifle on Planet DOOM, she blasts through a few enemies, ducks and rolls as she goes through a trench on a large kill streak, firing many rounds. When she comes up and shoots someone behind them in the one long continuous shot, she has not reloaded her weapon at all. Yet the ammo indicator on the weapon shows there to be 32 rounds in the magazine. The Halo Assault rifle only holds a 32 round or 36 round ammo magazine. It is only after that moment that we see the ammo count on the weapon that it starts counting down with her shots. So her weapon is still fully loaded after that stint in a single camera shot without reloading. (00:05:20)Quantom X
Corrected entry: The team claims to have hacked the Bossman's chair to make him think he got out of the game while he was still in it. However, getting out of the game when he is done with it only means physically removing the tech from his eyes. You cannot be convinced that you pulled it off without physically pulling it off.
Corrected entry: At the end there is mention of 3 Atari 2600 titles in the Swordquest series. However, there were 4.
Corrected entry: Wade lived with his aunt and played his game in a separate location. When he calls his aunt on the phone, her boyfriend grabs the cellphone and tells him to never call there again. This does not make sense considering he lives there.
Continuity mistake: Right in the beginning, Wade hops out a window from his home and starts walking beside it to the edge to climb to the next level down. As he starts walking he passes by another window with a curtain. It then cuts to a closer angle and suddenly the window no longer has a curtain. Also a wire appears on the wall in front of him. And you can tell it is the same house, not a time jump, as the rust at the top of the window frame is exactly the same. (00:01:15)Quantom X
Trivia: In the video that Halliday left behind after his death, you see floral arrangements around his coffin that are in the shape of the Star Trek's Federation symbol and one of the Enterprise. But the really cool thing is his coffin is actually a photon torpedo, exactly like Spock was put in after his death at the end of Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan. Complete with the blue Federation flag draped over the end of it. (00:08:05)Quantom X
