this is pure speculation. Speculation might not even be a strong enough word. More like. Rambling blah blah.
SG has made like, 600 million dollars off of loot boxes.
increasing global criticism on loot boxes:
“We recommend that loot boxes that contain the element of chance should not be sold to children playing games, and instead in-game credits should be earned through rewards won through playing the games,” the Parliament report reads. “In the absence of research which proves that no harm is being done by exposing children to gambling through the purchasing of loot boxes, then, we believe the precautionary principle should apply and they are not permitted in games played by children until the evidence proves otherwise.”
“When you speak to any gamer, even gamers who do buy those games and do buy into those loot boxes, none of them are happy with it,” games journalist and PR Ryan Brown told Newsbeat in June.
“They don’t deem it as being fun, they wish it wasn’t there.”
Some of these games are derided as being “pay to win” because of the advantages given by items from loot boxes. But the lucky draw nature of loot boxes has also drawn criticism from governments around the world, which fear the technique takes advantage of psychological factors that also contribute to gambling addiction.
Some countries like Belgium and the Netherlands have already banned the sale of loot boxes outright. By contrast, trade groups in the US like the Entertainment Software Association (ESA) are calling for self-regulation.
With all of the above in mind, check out these new power house heroes:
Now… I’m not gonna say these are THE BEST heroes that have ever been released. But they sure aren’t bad. There’s a darn decent chance these are some of the best heroes out there. Ever.
With that in mind, I pose to you this question:
Is it possible SG is trying to squeeze the juice outta the lemon before the lemon is declared illegal across much of the globe?
You’re gonna be tempted to answer a simple “no” and then just move on. But feel free to add some descriptors and whatnot. Ya know. Forum. Discussion. Words
