NFTs, i.e. non-fungible tokens, had been a hot topic last year and equal to multiple terms. While some corporate bosses and high animals in the video game industry advanced the digitally protected, unique objects as the Next Savior of Industry, players and fans stood to the whole above all critical.
So Ubisoft’s NFT offensive named Quartz triggered a huge shit storm and also the developers of Stalker 2 harvested after the announcement of NFT content a decent baking whistle, which even brought them to the Krypton plans again to discard. And although we have only immersed the toe tips in the new year, the next big company jumps on the NFT train.
Square Enix wants to get into business
The speech is from Square Enix, the Japanese company behind tremendous game rows such as Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts or the soon appearing foreseen. Yoke Matsuda, the President of the Publisher and Developer, has spoken not only for NFTs yesterday in a detailed statement, but also looks in them the future of the industry. In addition to the development of NFTs and the étagère, Matsuda also spoke about Game motivation :
I realize that some people play ‘to have fun’ and that they are currently the majority of players who pronounce their reservations about these new trends, and understandably. However, I believe that there is a certain amount People who are motivation it is to play ‘to contribute to’, and so help to make a game even more exciting.
Traditional games so far has not offered a clear incentive for this group, which were extremely motivated only by arbitrary, personal feelings such as good will and altruism. […] When we develop ourselves in the token economy, it will be more unique for users Give incentives that result in greater motivation resistance and also create a noticeable advantage for their creative achievements.
Head shake and criticism of the player
The resonance to Matsuda’s statement fell out little surprisingly predominantly negative. Fans shake their heads, criticize the decision and are partly horrified about the statements of the Square Enix President: especially on Twitter are many of those contributions. Even sharper than the support of NFTs itself the set of game fun was recorded.
Namely, it is symbolic for the mixing of crypto and video games, which is considered toxic by many fans. The fact that video games are not to serve primarily for entertainment and as a leisure pleasure, but according to some companies best should be combined with works and money-making combined will meet in players on all over the world on Here criticism.
A Tweet also chokes the problem of the agreement of NFTs and environmental protection and attracts unambiguous parallels to Final Fantasy 7: People who have created the Final Fantasy 7, a game about eco-terrorists who fight to the Protecting planets in front of a company that literally sucks life out of the planet… have now become exactly this company. When will Square Enix be renamed Shira?
