By his wording he even goes off and says it's gambling if he's saying studios need to avoid turning gamers into addicts.

It's obvious that publishers and devs can not be trusted anymore, I be been saying it since last gen when it all started, there needs to be a body in place made up of gamers that can restrict the use of it all. A body could be used for all kinds of wrongs not just MT's and loot boxes, and it should be run by gamers and publishers and devs should have to by law legally abide what is set in stone by them because it's getting beyond a joke gaming is now.

Wait till next gen when more yet outrageous methods of forcing gamers to pay come into effect, the greed is real now. What was once a gaming culture where developers mostly did it for the fans and gamers now is a multitude billion dollar industry which reminds me of when the premier-ship in English football changed when I was a kid in the early 90's. All it took for football to change was that one million pound signing pretty much like all it took was a multi million pound sales for developers.

I have put into effect my own way of getting my own back on all this greed, I say no to any game period that is full priced and ridden with MT's now. If the pubs and devs wo not behave decently and they are out for lining there pockets I myself will not give them a penny even in a standard copy sale, they do not deserve it no matter how good the game looks . It may be a bit harsh my choice to completely avoid the game that has MT's or loot boxes and I maybe missing out on some very good games just a shame more wo not follow suit on it. Some devs are making there games about this whole loot box crap and the fact that a game is now reliant and without them a game ca not work properly, that is the way they are making the game look and sound That a players now have to compete for loot boxes, entirely the wrong attitude.
