ESRB Changes Stance, Adds ‘In-Game Purchases’

After months of controversy surrounding loot boxes in video games, the ESRB is changing up their original stance. They have decided to create a new designation on game covers signifying in-game purchases. This will be separate from the standard ‘T for Teen’ or ‘M for Mature’ ratings we are used to seeing. The designation will be given to any game that allows users to purchase digital goods with real-world currency, including but not limited to loot boxes.
