At that time you are able to listen to the stage soundtracks, view the movies of the character you just beat Story Mode with and the attract movies (Arcade Intro, PlayStation2 Intro, and E3/TGS trailers).

Earning Game Money
You earn money in Arcade Mode, if you play higher ranked CPU opponents you will be rewarded with a higher amount of G after defeating the opponent. The money earned per fight in Arcade Mode ranges from 800G to about 4000G. In Arcade Mode you will also encounter random roulettes which multiply your winnings. The fastest way to get some money in the bank at first is to unlock the endingd for all characters by completing Story Mode with everybody. This gets you 100,000G per character for the first time through only.You can also collect money while playing 'Devil Within' and are rewarded an extra 100,000G upon completing the quest.
Getting Expensive Items For Free
That's right, you can get a bunch of the high priced items for free when you play 'Devil Within' a second time after you have already completed the quest. Various expensive items will be scattered around throughout the game.
Gaining Ranks Quicky
In order to gain ranks quickly you must play opponents of the same rank as you are, same as it is in the arcade version. When defeating CPU opponents of the same rank as your character it usually only requires 3 to 5 wins to get a promotion.After your fight has ended in Arcade Mode you can select on of 3 opponents with the directional pad, you can't always select an opponent with the same rank but do so when one is available. You;ll have your character rank maxed out in no time.
Hidden Story Mode Interludes
Don't always be quick to defeat the Story Mode interlude opponents, in some cases when you lose you get to see a different movie as part of the story.
