I know he should have had better controls... but I agree with the Dad

FIFA have set up a game where children can enter a lottery to get a favourite player... It's set for 3 years old FFS.

 

That thing has got scamming the gullible written all over it.

In fairness Chambers... 3 year olds are pretty known for being gullible....

I agree with Doggers, the controls on the switch are shythouse.  cant beat the n64 control ime.

What they are trying to do with these online gaming platforms is give people an unfair advantage at a price.

They are so hooked they'll pay.

You might say its like drug dealing but without the risk.

Just to clarify this: the game, or the lottery, are not "set for 3 years old". The reference in the article to 3 years old is a reference to the PEGI ratings system.  The 3+ rating states:

"The content of games with a PEGI 3 rating is considered suitable for all age groups. The game should not contain any sounds or pictures that are likely to frighten young children. A very mild form of violence (in a comical context or a childlike setting) is acceptable. No bad language should be heard"

It's football, so no bad language or scary sounds or pictures, hence the low rating.

If the expenditure of £550 in three weeks would “empty your bank account”, get a better job FGS

Too many games like this.  Knowing exactly what I was doing I blew about £400 on lootboxes in Star Wars: The Old Republic once.  I got the item I wanted and it made me pretty much invincible until EA worked out the trick that I, and others, were using.  However, it very much is a gambling response no matter how much they try to pretend it isn’t.  Belgium have got this one spot on.
