The booties have been a real source of problems for Electronic Arts in recent months, starting with outrage over its implementation last year in Star Wars: Battlefront 2 and growing from there to a wave of international criticism. However, EA boss Andrew Wilson said in an earnings interview that the company will “squeeze” booties, challenging the common complaint as a form of gambling.

“As you can imagine, we are working with all industry associations in the world and with regulators in several states and territories, many of whom we have been working with for some time have our values ​​and we have shown that programs like FIFA Ultimate Team is not the game, “Wilson said in response to a question about possible changes to the microtransaction team in the latest FIFA team. “We do not believe that FIFA Ultimate Team or ankle boots are betting.”

(In search of the alpha word that Wilson describes as “we do not believe that the FIFA Ultimate Team – all the looting boxes are betting on games of chance” But the voice of the phone is not clear, nor does it make sense to say “game boxes” are playing “immediately after saying that FUT is not gambling I have continued with EA to clarify).

Wilson explained that EA’s position is based on the fact that players always get a certain amount of items in each FUT package and that they are not allowed or allowed to monetize the virtual currency elements of real-world funds. . “We are actively looking to eliminate it where it is in an illegal environment, and we are working with regulators in different jurisdictions to achieve it,” he said.

The conclusion is that EA “will continue forward” with micro-transactions in the games. “We are always thinking about our players, we are always thinking about how to provide this type of experience in a transparent, fun, fair and balanced way for players,” said Wilson. “We will communicate with regulators around the world on this issue.”

Commission Belgian Games recently announced that looting funds in FIFA 18 are contrary to the laws of gambling in the country, despite the irony, that the Star Wars: Battlefront 2, the game that began to shake the box of booty, it turned out to be compatible with the law. The Netherlands also warned that “coercive measures” could be taken against game publishers whose stolen funds violate the regulations, and the United States indicated earlier this year that they would examine them more closely.
