Points are given at performances and when a task is completed and can be used to buy more clothes and accessories.

In 2011, many rumors started circulating the internet about the Wii version of the game being able to be used as an exploit for players to hack their console. The major source of this rumor was from hacking site "PSXTOOLS.DE".
This caused the game to be sold out at most major retailers for a period of time, as well as resellers putting listings up for the game on sites such as eBay for ridiculous prices. It was later discovered that no such exploit existed, and popularity for the game plummeted.
