I don't think you can draw a direct parallel with this and STEAM.
Essentially, several apps and games contain in-game currency, which can be purchased with real money with the touch of a finger
Now I don't own a a IPhone so I'm not aware of how "one touch" this thing is or if it does have some warring you are about to spend real
money. Even so I think in game
real money transactions should be illegal.
As an example. We all know how buying games on steam works. Click game, add to basket, check out agree to terms buy. I have no problem with this. What I do have a problem with is that say for example I buy Firefighter Thomas great adventure (made up crappy children's game) and it ends up having a micro transaction system.
Now thous saying that this is the result of bad parenting are basically saying that everytime before I let my young relatives play one of thees games I have to check them thoroughly my self to make sure they don't contain some micro-transaction scheme designed to rob me blind. We (the consumer) should be protected against that kind of crap and the court in this instance seams to agree with me.
Like I said. There really should be a law banning this sort of setup.Edited by Bit_reaper - 6/27/13 at 7:09pm
