Representative Chris Lee outlines plans for loot box legislation
Democrat representative Chris Lee raised his concerns over the Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes on 22 November and things are progressing. In a new video update from Chris Lee he talks through the process of drafting loot box legislation.
Chris Lee has posted a document which he wants gamers or concerned parents to send to governing officials to highlight the problem. Those that are interested in learning more about the scourge of loot boxes can check out more articles on the topic here.
The proposal is to prohibit the sale of loot boxes to anyone under the age of 21 which he says would likely be enough adding, “if you take away that share of the market form the gaming industry, they might actually change games across the board for the better.”
The legislation won’t be passed for some time, if at all, but this is the first step towards a solution to the gambling in loot mechanics.
