Polygon: The ESRB’s new warning seems to hide loot boxes in plain sight

https://archive.fo/wVxAg

>Patricia Vance at first sounded a little confused by the pushback. Another reporter on the call Tuesday pointed out to Vance, the president of the Entertainment Software Rating Board, just how expansive the board’s new labeling of in-game purchases really was. Practically anything you see touted at E3 2017, The Game Awards, PlayStation Experience, it’s all carrying some kind of in-app purchase.

>Vance suggested that there are post-release expansions that are not offered for sale from within a game. I know I scratched my head trying to think of one; it sounded like the others on the line were, too. I tried to repeat the question in a different way, pointing out that a current game — South Park: The Fractured But Whole — has chapter extensions and a season pass, literally available from within the game (a bus stop serves as the marketplace for that). None of that was objectionable before loot crates hit the scene last fall. And there are no loot crates in the South Park game.

>Vance stuck to the message. A season pass and DLC offered from within the game gets the in-game purchases label, and the ESRB encourages all parents to set spending controls using tools on the platforms available.

>“The new In-Game Purchases label will be applied to games with in-game offers to purchase digital goods or premiums with real world currency,” the ESRB said in a statement, “including but not limited to bonus levels, skins, surprise items (such as item packs, loot boxes, mystery awards), music, virtual coins and other forms of in-game currency, subscriptions, season passes and upgrades (eg. to disable ads).”

>To me, it has the effect of obscuring, or normalizing (there’s a trendy word) the phenomenon of loot crates. If they’re just another in-game purchase, and gamers have tolerated them for years, what’s the BFD about this one, right? I’m not the only one who feels this way.

>A ‘Missed Opportunity’ to educate consumers

>But I do respect Lee’s consistency of message, that there’s at least a class of microtransactions that deserve more attention. I still think he and his colleagues face a steep challenge, because it can still be argued they’re seeking to regulate content, and video game publishers won big against that effort in 2011 when the Supreme Court threw out a California law and found video games to be protected works of free expression.

>For its part, the ESRB seems unwilling to call out loot boxes as any kind of special or distinctive transaction. It was pointed out to Vance that the ESRB has content descriptors for gambling (and “simulated gambling”). Not that I expected the ESRB — a creation of the Entertainment Software Association — to regulate them as such. The ESA has been clear since the Battlefront 2 controversy broke that it does not consider loot boxes to be gambling, as Lee and other regulators and lawmakers allege.

>”I’m sure you’re all asking why we did not do something more specific to loot boxes,” Vance said. And, yeah, we were. She pointed to focus-group research that suggested parents weren’t familiar with the concept, and even those who were, weren’t actually informed about what a loot crate involves.

>A more specific warning is needed

>To my mind, that would suggest the necessity of a warning more specific than the ESRB is offering, rather than a blanket label that equates story extension DLC with a spin at the wheel for virtual items. The ESRB’s thrust is clear: Drive the focus toward parental controls that are available on consoles and other systems, which we’ve called a problem already solved. This isn’t surprising, and this approach was suggested to me by others within the industry a couple of weeks ago after the Hawaii legislation was introduced.

>A public service campaign calling attention to the parental support a console provides — and has provided for years — is fine. What’s bothering everyone is this is an industry trend, and the only way that can effectively be regulated is if no one’s buying it. Good luck with that, especially on something as popular as The Lord of the Rings, Star Wars or Call of Duty.

Net Neutrality is dead, but technically it's always been with us:

https://archive.is/yAryk

>In 1946, the Supreme Court decided the case of Marsh v. Alabama, in which a Jehovah’s Witness was arrested for trespassing because she was distributing religious literature in Chickasaw, Alabama, a town that was wholly owned by the Gulf Shipbuilding Corporation. Marsh argued that because the town’s roads and sidewalks were the only means by which she could exercise her freedom of speech—and because the town of Chickasaw had been open to public use in all other respects—the trespassing arrest violated her rights under the First Amendment.

>In a 5-3 decision, the Supreme Court ruled in Marsh’s favor. Justice Hugo Black decreed that private entities do not have the right to ban speech on their property if they happen to own a monopoly on the means by which speech can take place. Black also argued that the more that private entities open their property up to public use, the fewer rights they have to control or ban what people do on that property.

>Given that Google, Twitter, Apple, Facebook, and other edge providers are publicly-accessible entities that have deliberately pushed for monopoly control over the Internet, it’s clear that Marsh v. Alabama prohibits them from censoring right-wingers. The statute also applies to ISPs, since they wield a monopoly over Internet access. All it would take to shut down online censorship is a halfway-decent lawyer arguing that these left-wing Big Tech companies are literally violating the Constitution.

Big Tech Companies are already violating the Constitution, and ISPs would too if they throttle!

< Similar Cases

Similar cases to Marsh Vs Alabama have happened:

Lloyd Corp. V. Tanner https://archive.is/nPTjs (it went the other way)

Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins https://archive.is/RRpwv

>Marsh v. Alabama ruled in favor of Marsh, since the entirety of the town was owned by the same company, effectively making it a monopoly

>Lloyd Corp. V. Tanner ruled in favor of Lloyd Corp., since they only owned the mall, and not the surrounding area, thus Tanner still has the right to protest in other publicly-accessible areas

>For Pruneyard Shopping Center v. Robins, it was decided that state laws can expand upon federal free speech laws, but cannot infringe upon them

>On December 27, 2012, the Supreme Court of California reaffirmed Pruneyard but narrowed its applicability to the facts of the original case.[16] The entire court concurred in Associate Justice Joyce Kennard's holding that Pruneyard applies only to "common areas" of shopping centers that are designed and furnished to encourage shoppers to linger, congregate, relax, or converse at leisure, but does not apply to any other open portions of shopping centers merely intended to facilitate the efficient movement of shoppers in and out of tenants, including concrete aprons and sidewalks which shoppers simply walk across as they move between parking lots and big-box stores. In other words, the court effectively immunized most (but not all) strip malls and shopping centers from Pruneyard, except for those with areas analogous to public gathering areas such as plazas, atriums, or food courts.

> I'm guessing this would make applying such laws to the Internet that much more complex. But I'm no expert in law.

So the law may not be as clear cut as it appears. A new precedent could be argued for if it was taken to court however.

> If you get banned/shadowbanned, make a new account and keep RTing and spreading information they want to censor- why give them their perfect "safe-space" platform? They didn't leave us in peace, and would snuff out where we refuge if given the chance. Become Umman Manda (pic related). I'm not saying raid. But I am saying we should make them work hard for a change.

> Spread alternatives (Mastadon, Gab.Ai, Minds, Bluehand, Wrongthink.net etc). Remember, we want to stop Twitter being the "main" social media hub. So spread around even the ones you don't like (as long as they function- any biases can be solved by dilution.

There's also the Overton Window theory (what's appropriate to say in public discourse).

The edgy left pulls it to the left, and the edgy right pulls it to the right.

The purge of the worst of the right (and then some) is to allow the Overton Window to be pulled to the left as it was before GG & Trump threw spanners in the work.

Twitter caught red-handed admitting they censor conservatives & Trump supporters

>>331496

They want "shitty people" off their website. People of logic, people of fact, people pushing against bullshit.

I started the OP as if breaking or killing Twitter are two different things. They are not.

Twitter's purpose is to push narratives and reinforce MSM propaganda. If we break Twitter- it is no longer Twitter as we know it now, so it is dead and replaced by a better Twitter. If Twitter shuts down- it is dead.

Get this info out however you can! Tag-jack (include unrelated popular trends), include the stock-code for Twitter ($TWTR), show it to people in real life- and most importantly- if you are banned from Twitter, make another account.

They want shitty people to be gone? Overload them with it. Break their censorship block, and their safe-space. Only reason I'm here is thanks to an anon posting about fullchan on halfchan about a week or two after GG was banned from discussion. Censorship can be broken, and we know that normalfags are against SJW when properly motivated (i.e. when they've been lied to, or risk being under the boot).

Don't run and hide to another place. Fuck Twitter up.

Well anons, its 2018! Once again the Christmas Stalingrad comes to an end, and #GamerGate is still here.

As you can see, we still have some decent activity going on, as the various factions and branches of #GG continue to pursue their goals.

>Magic the Gathering is seeing a moderate sized eruption of a #GG-like phenomenon after permabanning one of their commentators for being a shitlord

>Gawker is meddling around with an attempt to revive

>Our Wikipedia article still sucks and the bullshit going on over there continues to compromise the integrity of their entire site

8chan continues to do well, with over 12000 UIDs among the first page of boards. A considerable recovery from the damage done by Josh and the 8chan site issues, so props to Codemoney for handling that.

Hotwheels, our beloved former admin, literally found Jesus and became a religious man this year. I'm happy he's found a comfortable place in life there in the Philippines.

There was a recent resurgence in aGG activity on Twitter a few days ago, attempting to push Twitter to ban #GG related accounts in their Great Wrongthink Purge. This failed, and nearly all of #GG who were still on Twitter yet remain, including yours truly somehow.

And I have a present for you! A project is now underway called Project Alexandria. The goal of which is to

So one of our Twitterfront peeps just got back a FOIA request he made about the FBI investigation into #GG.

From the sound of it he got a couple CDs of redacted documents going all the way back to September 2014.

https://twitter.com/livebeef

https://twitter.com/whenindoubtdo

Notable things so far:

The bomb threat against Anita in Utah is hilariously bad and full of memes.

Someone used the dox of a senior admin at Intel and tried to open a bank account with it.

Apparently at least one person back on halfchan sent threats and got busted.

Some underageb& admitted to sending someone 40-50 harassing phonecalls and got busted.

Apparently /baph/ is mentioned by name? Sounds like it, anyway. Pics related to all of the above.

They're going to do a full dump on KiA, and the information is working its way to Usher and Techraptor as we speak. Or in other words…

Let's try to collate, combine and centralize any and all information we have on these slimebags, eventually leading to some OC and infographics we can dump on twitter, leddit and wherever whenever a product of their's is released, or just for general usage and redpilling.

Newest Tencent article on (((Wikipedia))).

The most interesting parts in it are Controversy paragraph and third text paragraph.

Controversy

Copying claims

>Many of Tencent's software and services are remarkably similar to those of competitors.

>The founder and chairman, Huateng "Pony Ma" Ma, famously said, "[To] copy is not evil." A former CEO and President of SINA.com, Wang Zhidong, said, "Pony Ma is a notorious king of copying."

>Jack Ma of Alibaba Group stated, "The problem with Tencent is the lack of innovation; all of their products are copies.

>As of 2009, the company held 400 patents.

Anti-malware software cheating allegations

>In 2015, security testing firms AV-Comparatives, AV-TEST and Virus Bulletin jointly decided to remove Tencent from their software whitelists.

>The Tencent products supplied for testing were found to contain optimizations that made the software appear less exploitable when benchmarked but actually provided greater scope for delivering exploits.

>Additionally, software settings were detrimental to end-users protection if used. Qihoo was later also accused of cheating, while Tencent was accused of actively gaming the anti-malware tests.

'"Tencent gets involved in Rocket League in April to bring it to China and be more actively involved in game management; by September they create a crate and key microtransaction system. Before that point they'd been praised for "how they did microtransactions right" and now they have even redditors complaining about what happened'''

A couple of asides that come to mind in regards to Tencent:

^ On the mobile gaming front, they were responsible for the push for Nexon's properties to go mobile, like the failed Dungeon aNd Fighter Mobile (Dungeon Fighter Online in the west) game.

* Related to the first, Tencent actually encourages the practice of gold farming, though this is a common feature when it comes to China-based online games. This is even in the face of stricter regulations on video games passed into laws, they're known to exploit loopholes.

Nintendo Deal With Tencent Paves Way for China Push

https://archive.fo/koDA7

> For all its global popularity, Nintendo Co. has had relatively limited business in China. Now a deal with Tencent Holdings Ltd. has investors excited at the prospect that Nintendo’s Switch console and smartphone games could take off in one of the world’s biggest game markets.

> Nintendo shares shot up by more than 7% to a nine-year high Tuesday as investors welcomed its deal to put one of China’s most popular videogames—Tencent’s “Honor of Kings”—on the Nintendo Switch this winter. The game is called “Arena of Valor” in Europe, and a U.S. launch under that name is set for later this year.

> For the moment, the deal, disclosed last week in a Nintendo video posted online, doesn’t directly involve users in China because the Switch isn’t sold there. But it could be a precursor to further arrangements allowing Nintendo to sell the Switch and its mobile games in China, said people familiar with the thinking of Nintendo and Tencent executives.

> “This is very positive in the longer term in getting Chinese publishers supporting the Switch,” said Macquarie Capital Securities analyst David Gibson. He said he expected Nintendo to introduce the Switch in China by March 2019.

> China is the world’s largest smartphone game market, and “Honor of Kings,” first released two years ago, is one of its standout hits. Research firm App Annie said the game was the top-grossing app in China during the second quarter of this year, earning some $87 million a month on average on Apple Inc.’s iOS platform.

> The game, a battle between five-player teams, has been so popular that this summer, Tencent imposed daily playing-time limits on players aged 18 and under and imposed a curfew for children 12 and under. It was introduced in Europe in August.

> For 15 years starting in 2000, China blocked videogame console makers from its market, saying the consoles could hurt young people’s education. After it opened up in 2015, Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp. released their latest consoles. NinPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

Brilliant Judo-strategy by half/pol/.

We use the FakeNews meme against the real fake news and also promote the idea that no comment section = suspect story.

>promote the idea that no comment section = suspect story.

That's actually a pretty good indicator.

Same with a moderated comments section that somehow has no comments questioning or disagreeing.

We need to have a frank discussion about new developments concerning Gawker. You may have been under the impression that Uni vision purchased Gawker last year, that was not technically true. Univision purchased Gizmodo Media Group a holding company with the shitty sites Gizmodo, Jezebel, Deadspin, Kotaku, Jalopnik, and Lifehacker; Gawker itself was not included. The Judge allowed Nick Denton to delay the sail of Gawker itself because GG had made it so toxic that it would have dragged down the value of the other assets if bundled.

Well the actual Gawker site is now getting ready to be auctioned off along with the rights to sue Peter Thiel for his roll in helping Hogan achieve justice. Seriously the rights to sue someone is being auctioned. Anyhoo the nigger fucking faggot Nick Denton wants to bid for it, Peter Thiel himself wants to bid but some probably illegal bullshit is happening to block him and a bunch of former employees are on kikestarter wanting you to help them buy it for them because they want to work for themselves like a bunch of commie hippy fagots.

Anyway after reading over kikestarters TOS it's clear that what they are trying to do is in clear violation. You cant use kikestarter to be mean or victimize anyone, gawker literally is all about that. And this campain states that they want to preserve all the old articles and shit.

I was half way into writing the report pointing out specific instances of there bullshit like when they made fun of someone for having his dad die or a woman for having cancer. But like what would I achieve, if they get kicked from kikestarter they would just try to Streisand it and get even more victim bux from some other platform.

Also I don't know if these hippies would be the worst owners. Someone's going to end up with the website. Presumably if Peter gets it he would shut it down but he may not want to pay the final asking price or he may not be allowed to even bid. Denton did a class act of fucking it up the first time maybe he could fail a second? Maybe these hippies will find out just how hard it is to play with the big boys.

One of the most hilarious aspects of the kikestarter campaign is that if thPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
