In this video, Lilo discusses ESRB Speaks on In-Game Purchases!
Loot boxes, DLCs, and in-game purchases. Oh, my! In-game purchases have been a hot topic for the gaming industry since last year. The big question has been whether loot boxes are gambling. Lately, legislation has requested laws be made about in-game purchases. Throughout all of this, the Entertainment Software Review Board (ESRB) has remained mostly quiet. They said loot boxes are no more gambling than trading card games.
Their silence has been broken! The ESRB has ordered video games to label if they have in-game purchases. However, their officially ruling leaves a lot of room. It is simple for game companies to get around the label. No changes have been made on age ratings.
Lilo Nash thinks the ESRB wants to avoid doing much about in-game purchases. It would open a can of worms. If in-game purchases are gambling, what will happen to trading card games? Would games like YuGiOh! and Magic the Gathering have age restrictions?
The next topic will be Australian Gaming Industry!
