LOL can children even buy loot boxes? do they have credit cards and shit?
Epic Games Refunds Family After Son Spends $1,200 on Fortnite
12 year old spends nearly £700 on video game in three days
17-year-old uses his dad's credit card to spend $7,600 playing 'FIFA'
As for shit, they don't call them diaper dirtiers for nothing.
Yeah, but did the child have a credit card, or were the parents negligent? Children cant buy loot boxes, their parents buy them for them.
If a kid swipes $20 from mom's purse, and goes into a store to buy a pack of scratch lotto tickets, is it the parents fault for failing to keep money out of reach from the child?
The bigger picture is that the child should not have access to a consumable product that presents gambling as entertainment. So the sales clerk at the store will not sell it to the child; we as a society made laws to protect children because they are vulnerable to gambling entertainment due to a lack of understanding the value of money.
A gas station clerk can look at the kid and tell. A game Dev nor publisher can tell who's at the keyboard or tablet. Anyone can lie about their age online.
Besides, it's not the kids that are the big money makers. It's adults. The minors just make good news pieces.
