Default PCCB vs. PCCG

Does anybody know the difference, as in, how did they allocate releases to B or G? I see they coexisted, but PCCG for some reason has mostly N64 releases, and a bunch of arcade/ps1 releases, but generally very few game releases compared to PCCB.

It mainly depends on the label, or which other companies they're working with.

PC*A - PONY CANYON (mainly general j-pop, j-rock etc.)
PC*B - SCITRON
PC*C - CONFUSION
PC*D - Walt Disney Records
PC*E - distribution for other companies
PC*F - unused
PC*G - PONY CANYON (mainly anime and related music)
PC*H - PONY CANYON
PC*I - PCI MUSIC
PC*J - Johnny & Associates
PC*K - PONY CANYON
PC*L - CANYON Classics
PC*M - MASSIVE RECORDS
PC*N - loversoul/LSG
PC*O - unused
PC*P - PONY CANYON (mainly used for BDs/DVDs)
PC*Q - unused
PC*R - PONY CANYON (mainly used for live action soundtracks)
PC*S - PONY CANYON
PC*T - unused
PC*U - UNLIMITED RECORDS
PC*V - unused
PC*W - Walt Disney Records
PC*X - distribution for other companies
PC*Y - CANYON INTERNATIONAL

The third character is the media.
