Star Citizen backers looking to build their own fleet can now buy a new ship pack containing 117 craft—nearly every ship in the game—along with 163 extra items, including upgrades, skins and in-game posters. It's a mere $27,000.

:lol: .

...you'll only be able to view the purchase page if you've already spent $1,000 on the open-world space sim.

The president of the ESA defends lootboxes, surprising nobody.

An industry lobbying group sockpuppet wrote:the effort to regulate them as a form of gambling "challenges our industry's freedom to innovate, and impairs our ability to continuously test new business models, which drive creativity and engagement with our audience."

Valve pull trading csgo and dota 2 items from the Netherlands, will still sell people lootboxes though

It'll be interesting to see how EA react now - although Valve are still raking it in though.

Star Citizen :dread:

I think there's another really big issue with lootboxes and dlc, especially as gaming moves to mobile platforms, which is the problem that the temptation is so close by.

A friend of mine had a gambling addiction which he was able to beat a few years ago and one of the big reasons for that I think was that it was fairly easy for him to avoid going to a casino as it's this big physical place. On the other hand I remember another friend told me he spent over $6000 on DLC for some game, I think Warframe, I'm not sure.

Imagine how much harder it is for people to break these kinds of addictions when the portal through which you do it is so close by, and in cases like a cell phone or computer, can't just be avoided as they need them for work and such.

Maybe if you're a dirty southerner.
