Star Wars Battlefront 2 loot boxes investigated by Belgian Gaming Commission

Zomoniac

5 months ago

@LichtenbergFGRS true, but again it's no different from trading cards in that respect. Plenty of stuff targeted at kids uses the same mentality as blind loot boxes, from capsule toys to Pokémon cards to Kinder eggs.

If those drops for which you have no use can't be resold then I guess it might become a harder defence, but for something like FUT you're looking at a modern-day Panini book, and with the ability to sell/swap your unwanted cards on the marketplace they could easily argue there's no situation in which you end up with nothing.

@Thermobaric I suspect therein lies the loophole, as you're not using those credits to 'potentially' win something. You always win something, just rarely the thing you want. Much as it's an abomination when used in game design and I hope it is a short-lived fad, if it goes to court I can see them using a defence that it's more analogous to football stickers or CCGs than sports betting or casino games, as you can't end up getting nothing for your money.

@riceNpea People tried it a lot in 08, though I only saw one goal from thousands of attempts online, but I think it was mostly because you had about a 50% chance of getting a corner if you weighted it right.

@Rivuzu If I was feeling cynical I'd suggest that was by design. Amusing as their anti-piracy measure was, it felt a tad ironic as it's not too far fetched to think a substantial amount of idea theft went into the game's creation.

People must've been getting swept up in launch day excitement. My nearest 7 Argoses were showing stock of both versions at about 7pm on Friday, and by 9am on Saturday everything was gone. Guessing everyone got home from work on Friday, read all the forum posts and crumbled. Rare that happens with a launch, either it's pre-ordered out or easily available.
