No Slot Machines in European Platinum games

    As Filb.de and Bisafans.de posted, the slot machines in the European version of Platinum can't be used anymore. Instead of that, you can sometimes find a few coins which other players left there.

    It is unknown, why this is like that, but probably it's because gambling is not allowed for minors.

    What do you think of that?

    I think it's extremely exaggerated and stupid...

    It is exaggerated.

    First, considering that the legal age is nearly the same in USA and possibly Japan for the Casino.
    Second, considering that the Game Corner was available in Diamond and Pearl in Europe and that it was available in the older generations.

    Here is something that will make the sales of Pokémon Platinum lower...

    How many coins do people find at a time? Because there's a TM that is 20 000 coins, and if you only find around 50 coins a day... And the Explosion TM won't be available anymore.

    Wow. WOW. You're right. All it says is "It's a Game Machine!", then you occasionally find some coins.

    I just found about 140 coins from all the machines.

    How do we get the Explosion TM then?

    So can you just randomly find the Explosion TM there, too?
    Added to the list of prizes?
    Please say the prizes' prices went down, at least.

    Maybe they'll decrease the amount for getting TMs and prizes?
    Thats so stupid that they are concerned about kids gambling virtual money.

    No, the prizes are still the same price. So it's essentially 400000 Pokédollars for the Giga Impact TM.

    WHAT?

    EDIT: Just figured out something. Assuming you pick up all the Coins every day and don't buy any yourself, it will only take SIX MONTHS to get the Giga Impact TM.

    This kinda ruins it abit for me

    It's so sad that you can laugh about it...Luckily almost everyone here has Diamond or Pearl so it doesn't hurt that much.

    Eh, I'll just get them on Diamond or pearl and trade them over. It's only slightly more effort.

    It's nice to know that Sinnoh at least has gambling laws, anyway.

    Anything else I should know about the Europe Platinum? Because I feel like trading it in and getting a damn US one now.. But then again I'll miss the key. God damnit.

    D/P take place in the same time as Pt no?
    It doesn't make sense... D:

    It isn't proven to be in all versions of Pokémon Platinum, only in the Italian and German versions, so there are chances that they will be available in the French, English and Spanish ones.

    Maybe Platinum takes place in a more moral parallel universe where underage gambling is illegal and the police force actually does something?

    It is in the UK one, I just checked on mine.

    Sorry.

    I always thought the Game Corners were open to Trainers of all ages, since they make money through battles and such, and that makes it okay. In fact, I think they're designed to teach kids moderation. That's why coins are so expensive.

    EDIT: Rank up! Woo!

    You know, poke_girl, you should trade it in for an US Platinum.
