WASHINGTON – April 9, 2019 – The Entertainment Software Association released the following statement in response to the announced Federal Trade Commission public workshop on loot boxes:
“The Federal Trade Commission previously recognized that the video game industry excels in partnering with caregivers and consumers by providing reliable video game ratings and comprehensive information. The industry also provides robust parental controls that ensure parents maintain control over in-game spending. We look forward to highlighting that information and resources to the FTC.”
