I'm conflicted on this. 


On the one hand, I'm not one for government regulations on video games at all. 


On the other hand, microtransactions and lootboxes are a complete cancer in the video game industry, and are the source of the worst parts of the industry.  Not to mention that the industry itself has done a piss-poor job of regulating itself, so the threat of government regulation is pretty much the last resort here.

We look forward to sharing with the senator the tools and information the industry already provides that keeps the control of in-game spending in parents’ hands. Parents already have the ability to limit or prohibit in-game purchases with easy to use parental controls."

I think it's enough that parents have a way of controlling these in-game purchases in these types of games.
