They should have seen this coming a mile away. Now, while I can't say anything will actually come of this, something eventually will because the industry had so many chances to clean up this garbage but kept responding with libertarian promises of "the market will fix itself" and the market didn't. Where the industry used to have a lot of gamers standing behind it, microtransactions basically started to reveal that the game industry is more focused on finding new ways to monetize than it is in innovating new, fun ways to play their games. There was only so much before they'd start to lose the core players as a good defense mechanism.

 

And while there's no guarantee that this measure will start to clean up the problem (it probably won't even pass), if it doesn't, each new approach is only going to get more draconian so that it does more harm than good (the whole "the government is the last entity we need to clean up anything").

Why don't they vote to break up EA and break up Activision/Blizzard.
