Oh yes they pushed it that far.A member of Pokecommunity Furanty contacted Nintendo about the slot machines. They have replied subtly that the games are not released so game content is not known. But due to the EU legislations the slots will be out.

since they disabled the slots in the EU verison, why diddn't do it for the NA verison?

Because games companies hate Europe.

(God dammit, I liked the slots.)

Because despite NA's stupidity, they don't mind casinos.

Actually, they got off easy. You get coins automatically.

Sounds really stupid. I guess there isn't anything we can do about it though. /:

It's that whole "gambling" stigma. Pokemon cards already went through this in some Arab country or something.

This is nothing ot do with Nintendo, or any other games company.
This is, once again, the doing of those stupid bereaucrats in Brussels.
Perhaps if UKIP get in, then the UK games may still have the slots.

To be honest, I am surprised that the slots weren't forced out earlier, but I do not agree with their decision to do so.

Mm, because a game that teaches kids that capturing wild animals against their will and forcing them to fight other similarly captured creatures in order to boost their own public status is a good thing is a lot more productive to a positive upbringing than something that takes up such a tiny portion of the product.

Considering how well the slots would screw me out of my coins I would think they would serve as an ideal deterrent to gambling.

Would you kindly tell a certain group of people in the German government to not be douchebags with violent games as well?

They are giving them away for free along with all the event legends in a in-game post Elite 4 shop.

=/. Wonder if they'll have Roulette?

They'll probably drop the game corner completely.
I'm also suprised that they haven't done this before now.^^

I honestly don't get what the big deal is. It's okay to simulate animal fights, but not gambling?
I love the double standards of society.

I don't get it either.
Tbh, I'm suprised either are allowed with the way it is now.
