Jim Sterling & Angry Joe YouTubers already talk about this.

I mean what else EA & Epic supposed to say? It's their job to defend this stuff. You can even bring up the fact that it isn't considered gambling, because that has a basis in what others have parroted before. It had a basis in reality. Surprise mechanics? Lol, That's the fucking excuse joke if I ever heard.

(As far as no one hasn't made a thread, their too damn busy bashing Xbox One/MS/Scarlet to even think about this and the fact this is just a Hearing and they are not in Court really isn't to go by)

I watched the Jim Sterling and Angry Joe videos on this the other day and my god was that some of the most absolute scummy and ridiculous excuses I’ve ever heard trying to defend lootboxes. It’s absolutely disgusting the lengths that these clowns go to trying to defend them.

Funny thing is, that EA lady couldn't even look at the guy's face when she started talking. I tell ya, EA has one of the worst PR I ever seen. If your gonna be professional, look'em in the eyes lady otherwise, your a lying......

Yawn! People will still buy EA games no matter how much people bitch about them on forums like these. As for lootboxes, well its the most overrated gaming concern outside of the Anti-SJW crybabies. :)

Wait, do people really argue that lootboxes aren't gambling? But, you're paying real money for a CHANCE at getting a good item, but you don't know what you're in for going into it. That's literally gambling, and doesn't make sense when there is no such thing as a rare digital item. There's no limit over how many times a server can send 1s and 0s to another machine.

EA execs have reportedly given their performance bonuses to employees

"the publisher was recognised as one of the best companies to work for at the start of 2018, and now it seems that EA’s top executives have diverted their own bonuses to employees."

Pure evil

@Zuon: Its not really gambling though. If I go to a casino or buy a lottery ticket I might win something or I might win nothing and lose all my money.

Lootboxes you pay money and get somethi,g every time, its just random items though. Its like those little toys kids can buy at any store that sells toys, the ones that are usually in sealed bags that you can't see what's in them. You pay and get a toy, you just don't know what it is.

As for lootboxes I don't give two shits about them AS long as its cosmetics, once you start pushing things that alter gameplay that's were I draw a line and wouldn't buy the game.

I hate loot boxes. It’s why I don’t spend money on them. I tend to avoid games that have them.

At the same time, I have no sympathy for idiots who rack up thousands in debt for these things. It is their own fault.

For those that have kids who do this, it is your fault for being a terrible parent. Teach them better. Don’t put their phone in your name. Don’t attach your credit cards to anything they own. Have passwords for all your things so they can’t steal your phone and rack up purchases.

It’s just common sense but humans are dumb lol

@vfighter: That would be a good argument if it weren't for a few things.

1. Most lottery tickets don't exceed $5

2. It is very unreasonable to pay for a $30 lootbox, only to be given an item that you could have easily gotten in the $5 lootbox.

3. If you've already paid $60 - 100 for the game itself (depending on edition), gambling lootboxes have no reason to even be in the game.

None of these points are valid counter arguments.

Not sure about bigger than your hand but we have some big buggers.

As for dominos, well I know what i'm having for dinner tonight.
