The loot box system in Star Wars: Battlefront II has ignited a huge conversation about the monetisation practice across the industry. After Belgian regulators declared they did indeed consider loot boxes gambling, US politicians from the state of Hawaii have condemned publishers EA for their “predatory practices” and are investigating legislative options.


Representatives Chris Lee and Sean Quinlan (both Democrats) held a press conference late on November 20 - you can watch highlights in the video above. Lee describes Battlefront II as “a Star Wars-themed online casino, designed to lure kids into spending money.” Referencing Admiral Ackbar, he goes further, saying “it’s a trap.”
