      The ongoing dispute about loot boxes, microtransactions, and optional in-game purchases is reaching its next stage in France, as Senator Jerome Duraine has written an open letter to the French gambling agency ARJEL (Autorité de régulation des jeux en ligne) as of last week, informing them about the danger he thinks consumers may run into facing this kind of content.

      The French senator want to discuss the matter with the responsible companies to ensure local gamers and the industry don't get hurt by the trend. Interestingly, Duraine addresses progress-driven and other game-deciding influences in those loot chests in detail, because he thinks cosmetic items like skins are a common thing in gaming nowadays.

      What do you make of the letter?
