    It's amazing to me that that article said so much, without saying anything at all. What exactly has been made that is Bond related? (I know one answer is nothing any of us care about) They went into the names of the projects without disclosing anything about them that is relevant.

    @0BradyM0Bondfanatic7 I believe these are the first batch of casino games that Variety reported on in March.

    "The franchise have made a multi-year licensing deal with gambling products specialist Scientific Games Corp., which will lead to the super-spy’s image being used on casino slot machines.

    Scientific Games said it expects to showcase the first James Bond-themed slot games at the Global Gaming Expo on Oct. 3-5 in Las Vegas. That means the first machines could begin appearing in casinos next year.

    I figured as much, @Red_Snow (that Bond would feature in gambling games) but beyond that I just got no context for any of it in the actual press release.

    All that besides, I know none of us care about that anyway, and are disappointed with how the Bond license is being used.

    @BMW_with_missiles, haha, when I read the press release the first thing I thought of was what Konami are doing with Metal Gear. Great minds and all that... ;)

    Oh, so they are going the route of each film (or at least three of them) gets its own slot machine? I assume DAF was included because of the Vegas setting? I don't play slots that often but I'll be sure to check these out at some point.

    They'll need to watch out when they make those Diamonds Are Forever slot machines available to casinos worldwide. Elephants will come from all over just to get their chance at winning big.

    I was under the impression that you couldn't pull the lever unless you had your elephant with you!

    Seriously though, I hope that the designers put as much thought into this as the hardcore fans would have, even if it is for some silly slot machines. If people are going to be exposed to the Bond brand then I'd hate to have it come off as generic.

    They just need to get the crack team who did World of Espionage to design the machines. Instant and guaranteed success there!

    Ha! Woe is World of Espionage. Haven't even tried it because it's only Bond in name. *Pukes in mouth*

    Yes, I remember pointing out how fitting the acronymn for WOE was when it was first announced to someone here. It's like the devs knew what they were making was garbage.

    And I know just as much about this project as I did before watching the video, which is very little.

    Someone needs to tell them that the "007 back to back", is from Charlie's Angels.

    Ugh. They give us this BS while letting the video game license sit unused.

    You mean you have to use you hands...? It's like a baby's toy...
  • To be fair I think casino games are far enough away from the concept of console video games that this is a seperate topic. Besides, Bond and gambling go well together I'd definitely have a go on a Bond themed slot machine if I found myself in a casino with one.

    This isn't them running the game licence into the ground like with 007 Legends and that terrible mobile game, it's just them expanding the franchise in a different way. When I was trying to find out more about it I discovered that there was also a Game Of Thrones machine unveilled. But I know that this doesn't affect the video game licence because Telltale are still doing their Game Of Thrones game. So that proves it is has nothing to do with the computer game licence, relax guys.

    I'm as annoyed about the lack of a new Bond video game as any of you but this isn't the place to bitch about it. It's a different thing (although they don't help themselves by calling it a "gaming experience"). By that logic, you may as well go on the comics thread or a thread about the 007 aftershave or something and say "why are they doing this but they're not using the video game licence". It isn't really relevant.

    I know from my work that the Scientific Games Corporation are the ones behind the National Lottery scratchcard games here in the UK. They even had Bond film scratchcards at one point, for CR and QoS I believe.
