Senate recommending a "comprehensive review of loot boxes in video games"

The Senate enquiry into loot boxes has handed its report to parliament, recommending that the Federal Government undertake a “comprehensive review of loot boxes in video games”, Kotaku is reporting.

The report noted that the “global consensus” on whether loot boxes were considered a gambling mechanism “has not been reached, nor has a uniform approach to dealing with the issue been adopted”, but mentioned the approaches that several countries including Belgium, France, the UK, and New Zealand have made to regulating their use in-game and protecting vulnerable parties from harm.

IGEA, who contributed submissions and testimony, released a statement saying, “IGEA welcomes the Committee’s measured and considered approach to this inquiry, which concludes with the sole recommendation of a future comprehensive review into loot boxes in video games.”

More information about the findings of the report can be found in the Kotaku article.
