SEGA Waffles on NFTs

A report on TweakTown follows up on interest SEGA has expressed in incorporating NFT technology into future games (thanks VGC). The article notes a recent company meeting where SEGA CEO Haruki Satomi discussed possible issues with such a plan. It sounds like this may not happen, as he says this will not proceed if it's perceived as "simple money-making," and it's probably hard to find gamers who will not view it that way. Here's word:
"In terms of NFT, we would like to try out various experiments and we have already started many different studies and considerations but nothing is decided at this point regarding P2E.

"There have been many announcement about this already including at overseas but there are users who shows negative reactions at this point.

"We need to carefully assess many things such as how we can mitigate the negative elements, how much we can introduce this within the Japanese regulation, what will be accepted and what will not be by the users.

"Then, we will consider this further if this leads to our mission "Constantly Creating, Forever Captivating", but if it is perceived as simple money-making, I would like to make a decision not to proceed."

Interesting that Ready Player One got brought up. A key part of that dystopian setting is that regular people are so destitute that they are living in vertical slums and wreckage.

NFTs and Cryptocurrency in games will add nothing beneficial to users that couldn't be done some traditional way. It's another scam to siphon off additional cash, multiple times, depending on how the Store/Exchange gets set up.
