The scene where Jimmy uses the flute to open the warp cuts to his avatar on the video game screen, it shows his points rising quickly because of it. In reality, using the warp flute in the game earns you no points at all.
When Jimmy is given his number as they walk into the competition hall, it's 357. In another scene as he walks down the aisle to play, the number on his back can clearly be seen to be 427. When he wins the preliminaries, it's back to 357 again.

In the scene where Jimmy is playing Ninja Gaiden with Corey and Haley watching, Haley remarks that it's Jimmy's "second time through and he hasn't even taken a hit yet!" However, if you look closely at Jimmy's health meter, it clearly shows that he HAS taken a hit.

Having seen the movie 62 times the biggest mistake I noticed is when they're driving through Reno in the back of the pick-up, there is a clock visible in the background that keeps changing times, from 12:07 I believe to 11:42 and then back 12:08.

When Corey's father & brother pick up the truck at the junk yard, the father is playing Zelda II. The game is correct, but the music is not. The music is the overworld music when you walk around in Zelda II, not when playing through stages.

When Christian Slater unplugs the Nintendo, they wrap everything up and leave, but look closely and you'll notice they left behind the R/F switch for the Nintendo

The cover of the movie is wrong. Corey is on the cover wearing the Power Glove on his left hand, when it should be on his right. (considering Lucas wore it on his right, and the box clearly displays a right hand.)
