Gaming businesses want blockchain gaming to become widely used
Ryo Matsubara, representative director, Oasys, reportedly emphasized the significance of the project’s partners, including Bandai Namco, Sega, and Square Enix, with regard to their collaboration in this project, with the existence of a long-term plan for blockchain-based play-to-earn (P2E) gaming, at the 2022 Tokyo Games Show.
According to a representative of the Oasys blockchain project, Japanese gaming businesses are striving for the widespread adoption of blockchain-based games and are not anticipated to be swayed by the gaming community’s opposition to cryptocurrencies and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Ryo Matsubara, representative director, Oasys, reportedly emphasized the value of the project’s partners, including Bandai Namco, Sega, and Square Enix, with regard to their collaboration in this project, with the presence of a long-term plan for blockchain-based play-to-earn (P2E) gaming, at the 2022 Tokyo Games Show.
They are unwilling to alter that rule. They truly get how blockchain will be adopted in the future. They want to develop the next future [of gaming], not only focus on the income, Matsubara continued.
Tekken and Pac-Man were developed by Bandai Namco, and the Final Fantasy series was produced by Square Enix, according to information provided by Cointelegraph. Matsubara said that new blockchain-based games should first be developed and given time to grow before attempting to integrate blockchain technology into conventional video games. Strong [popular] IP will be introduced after the model has been fixed, made sustainable, and successful, according to Matsubara. Due to the desire for purported speculation rather than gaming, Matsubara emphasized the issue of projects being dependent on the price of in-game tokens.
Furthermore, according to Luke Sillay of Blowfish Studios, a division of Animoca Brands with an Australian focus, rather than playing games to gain tokens, consumers prefer to have fun. According to Oasys, its mainnet launch for its proof-of-stake blockchain, which targets the gaming industry, is anticipated to take place in the next months of this year. Additionally, it appears that western gaming corporations have extended their exposure to blockchain gaming, including Epic Games, the creators of Fortnite. A new free-to-play NFT game named Blankos Block Party by Mythical Games was recently added to the Epic Games shop.
