No more predatory loot boxes in gaming

For those unaware, as of yesterday (Wed, Aug 7), video game companies are forced to show you odds of winning certain in game prizes. It’s a good call for those with kids who have to have that one item/character/cosmetic and will drain their pockets for said items.

Another win involves companies making millions off of players who “need” certain in game items and willing to pay unrealistic amounts of money. As far as when the ruling is enforced, that’s up to to the developers and Sony/Nintendo/Microsoft.

So what does this mean? Means no more companies trying to milk the customers out of money for something virtual. The debate of loot boxes being legalized gaming is up for debate.
