PlayStation has put out a survey for gamers attending Evo, asking about sorts of NFTs they is perhaps fascinated by buying.
It is Evo in the intervening time, which for these within the know is the most important combating recreation championship round. Quite a few video games participate within the event yearly, however this 12 months a comparatively regarding query is being requested by PlayStation in a survey despatched to gamers at Evo, one all about everybody’s least favorite subject in the intervening time; NFTs.
The survey, which IGN confirmed was actual, requested these answering the survey “Which of the next NFT/ Digital Collectibles would you be most fascinated by buying?” adopted by issues like “PlayStation Objects, Favorite Recreation Characters,” and “Evo-branded” collectibles.
In fact, a survey by no means signifies that one thing is explicitly being deliberate, however the query is not whether or not anybody can be fascinated by NFTs within the first place, simply what sort of NFTs. Niko Companions analyst Daniel Ahmad pointed out this does not appear to be associated to the lately introduced PlayStation Stars program, and that “digital collectibles is only a time period that’s used interchangeably with NFTs.”
Introduced final month, the PlayStation Stars loyalty program instantly raised eyebrows on the point out of digital collectibles, with many fearing that meant NFTs. Fortunately, that is not the case, and all in it simply feels like a rewards program, with the digital collectibles simply being issues like figures of varied online game characters.
Contemplating the survey is particularly at Evo, it may simply be that some form of NFTs are deliberate for the event. Why it is a survey from PlayStation particularly is probably going simply because of the truth that the corporate acquired Evo final 12 months.
We’ll have to attend and see whether or not the survey truly leads to something concrete, however seeing as nearly everybody in video games unanimously hates them, let’s hope not!
