With the ethical questions surrounding loot boxes becoming more and more prevalent it’s now taken its most drastic response yet. According to the ESA or Electronic Software Association the 3 console manufactures will be forcing game studios to roll out to new games soon as well as new games in the future with the odds. This is coming off the backs of many court issues where companies like EA are battling to make loot boxes seem like “surprise mechanics” when the governments of many countries see them as gambling to minors. It’s not stated when any of the console manufacturers will be rolling out this initiative but it’s great to see them finally take a stand against companies like EA.
