The original Japanese version, "Jet Set Radio" did not contain the levels featuring Cube and Combo (Grind Square was one of these levels).
When the game was brought to the USA, the name was changed to "Jet Grind Radio" and these extra levels were added. Songs from Rob Zombie were also added. Although, during the game, DJ Professor K still refers to the radio station as "Jet Set Radio".
In Europe, the game kept it's original catchy title "Jet Set Radio", and had the extra levels. It does not have the Rob Zombie songs (which is a good thing in my opinion). It also has some differently translated dialogue from the USA version.
The three districts of Tokyo-to are actually the names of real districts of the real city of Tokyo in Japan. They are Benten-cho, Kogane-cho, and Shibuya-cho. The names of the real districts are simply Benten, Kogame, and Shibuya, but the "-cho" suffix can be added, as "-cho" simply means "district" or "area" in Japanese.
