[h=2]What you need to know[/h]
  • Microtransactions and loot boxes have become increasingly obtuse in recent years.
  • The Entertainment Software Association and console manufacturers want to change that.
  • Today, the body announced that Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony will soon require odds disclosures.
  • This means that you'll know how rare an item is and how likely you are to get it if you buy a randomized loot crate.
A few years ago, Star Wars Battlefront II ignited a microtransactions controversy which many world governments cracked down on. The long-term effects continue because even the United States is taking action against the practice. Luckily, Microsoft, Nintendo, and Sony are also on board to add more transparency to loot crates.
