Japan To Stop Kids From Going Micro-Transaction Crazy

Some Japanese kids have been going bananas on mobile phone games, racking up insane bills by virtual crap. The country's six major social game operators decided this week to limit the amount players under 18 can spend to ¥10,000 ($124). Players under 15 will be capped at ¥5000 ($60).

Even with these spending caps, this can add up real quick.

    The cap for people under 15 should be a grand total of ZERO. Seriously? WTF.
