Post Deleted Scene
The Policenauts Private Collection has the game's original story boards on it, with deleted scenes intact. It looks like they were originally planning on having the console version(s) open with a poker match with all of the policenauts.
(timed link)
The PC-98 version just starts on Earth with the opening credits and doesn't show outer-space at all (nor the implication of sabotage), which I like more then what was present in the console releases.

HOWEVER, if the above scene was still in place, you would get to know the Policenauts more before the game starts. Which would make having the scene, right afterwards, involving potential sabotage more shocking and interesting.

I'm not sure why they cut this...Though, admittedly, I can't read the notes or dialogue panels, so I can't be total sure if this poker scene is a winner or not.
What do you guys think? I'm I the only one that thinks the console version's opening feels a tad patched in? Do you think this deleted scene would actually improve it?

Nice find! I think it could have been great. It would have helped mitigate the obvious question of, "who are (were) the policenauts?" For a large part of the game I found that I knew little to nothing about the three that aren't Jonathan or Ed.

I ripped a ton of textures and sounds from the Private Collection -- including all the storyboards.
I used Snailrush's PSound and PSicture.

Scan the following files in the CDROM:\PILOT\ directory.

BAC_MD.DPK -- Background artwork
CHA_MD.DPK -- Character artwork
CONTE.DPK -- Storyboards
DATABASE.DPK -- Database textures
ETC.DPK -- Konami logo, loading screen, etc textures
ETC_MD.DPK -- Misc. item artwork
MAKING.DPK -- "Making" menu textures
MEC_MD.DPK -- Mech / vehicle artwork
MENU_GMS.DPK -- Menu textures
PICTURE.DPK -- Encyclopedia pictures
PN_BGM1.PAC -- Background music (won't extract the long tracks)
PN_SE1.PAC -- Sound effects
PN_VOX1.PAC -- Voice files
POSTER.DPK -- PN Logo and promotional artwork
SEIYU.DPK -- VA character select textures
VOICE.DPK -- VA menu textures
