Whilst we may have spoken about this previously, the UK Government has finally issued out its call against lootboxes.
Visitors to the GOV.UK site now have access to a variety of documents (including some in Welsh. Bendigedig, cariad!) wherein they can submit evidence against loot boxes.
There is a form for evidence and a form for “Player Experience Questions”. Basically, if you have any previous examples of dealing with lootboxes, microtransactions, etc, the UK Government wants to know.
The page notes;
“On 8 June 2020 the government’s response to the DCMS Select Committee Immersive and Addictive Technologies Inquiry announced that the government will launch a call for evidence to gather evidence and understand the impact of loot boxes. This followed a commitment made by the government to review the Gambling Act 2005 with a particular focus on tackling issues around online loot boxes”.
Which, in laymen’s terms, means the Government is following through on what the DCMS asked of it.
So, what are you waiting for? You can find the forms here.
