Earlier today it was reported that 4 bills have been submitted by Chris Lee of Hawaii that serve as legislation for Loot Box microtransactions within video games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 EA and Overwatch. These bills focus on the gambling aspects of the pseudo slot machine systems in order to force developers and publishers to disclose exact percentages, clearly label all games that contain loot boxes, and place a 21 year age restriction on their sale in Hawaii.

Bills target video games with rewards for a price

  4. i don't see it sticking. Most AAA game developers can afford to start a suit against the state of Hawaii over them restricting interstate trade.

  6. just remember anytime you say "there aught to be a law…", the government will not hesitate killing you to enforce it.

    and of course, the statist solution to the problem is commissions, bureaus, and agencies…
