The loot box bill has entered the United States Senate. The bill is called Protecting Children from Abusive Games Act, and the full text of the law has also released.
The bill is 18 pages long and give information about what a loot box is, and how it takes advantage of players, notably younger audiences. Those who are behind the bill wish to prohibit anyone under the age of 18 from having access to microtransactions in games.
So far, we only have the bill’s official text. No one has officially read it on the Senate floor or formally discussed the matter beyond closed doors. With the bill filed, the Senate must issue a vote to bring it before them to discuss it amongst themselves. After that, they can edit the proposal, adjust amendments, fine-tune the text, and give a more precise definition to how the bill is going to prevent loot boxes from reaching players under the age of 18.
