Oh pricey, right here we go once more! Only a few weeks after Sony unveiled its PS Stars loyalty scheme and said that this system’s digital rewards are “definitely not NFTs“, the corporate has been discovered asking gamers whether or not they’d be concerned about buying NFTs. You could not make it up.
The query comes by way of a brand new PlayStation survey that is out there at Evo 2022 — the large combating sport occasion that is occurring this weekend (which is now owned and sponsored by Sony). It asks: “Which of the next NFT / Digital Collectibles would you be most concerned about buying?” The potential solutions embrace Evo-branded, favorite music artists, favorite esports gamers / groups, PlayStation gadgets, and favorite sport characters (by way of @snorlaxownz).
Now after all, it is value remembering that this is only a survey. Large corporations like Sony have to try to cowl as many bases as they will, and person suggestions is a crucial a part of trying to know what individuals are at the moment concerned about. This might simply be Sony testing the waters (though it does really feel like the entire NFT bubble has lengthy since burst).
There’s additionally no direct indication that this survey has something to do with the aforementioned PS Stars scheme. Each point out ‘Digital Collectibles’, however this survey seems to be extra common in its objective.
However, the survey is already attracting loads of destructive consideration on social media. The criticism has been just about fast, and it is attainable that Sony should wheel out some sort of assertion on the matter over the approaching days.
