New Delhi: After the Government of India decided to ban 117 other apps including the most popular gaming mobile app PUBG, many have shown massive disappointment with the government’s decision. “They are engaged in activities which are prejudicial to sovereignty and integrity of India, defense of India, security of state and public order,” said GOI.
Due to its free-to-play nature and easy availability, PUBG Mobile attracted many gamers allowing them to play games despite the limitation on the hardware. A free-to-play game often comes free for all with either ads or monetary payment for cosmetic changes. A pay-to-win game often provides a paywall that restricts a player’s performance, especially in multi-player games to the extent of monetary-value spent by the player on the game. This often led to unfair matches and grinding of resources to get things, which otherwise can only be obtained by premium in-game currency.
One of the major attractions of the game was the in-game mic that helped gamers talk to friends while playing the game.
