U.S. Lawmaker Already Has a Plan For Games With Loot Boxes
Hawaii Democratic State Rep. Chris Lee has announced a detailed plan to reign in video games that include loot boxes. The representative previously entered the loot box debate in November, when he posted a video criticizing the practice.
The high-profile release of Star Wars Battlefront II has been plagued with controversy over the game’s loot box mechanics. EA, the game’s publisher, even overhauled Battlefront 2‘s progression system prior to launch (though not quite successfully). As loot boxes have gained increasing attention, some have looked to government regulation of video games as a means of combatting the practice.
