Gaming: will the Web3 war actually happen?
Whether it's Ubisoft or Sony, most of the long-established players in the video game industry are taking an increasing interest in cryptos. They are doing so both for business opportunities, and also to counter the rise of 100% web3 players who are no longer hiding their ambitions...
Usually Sony manages to keep its secrets well, but this time it didn't work out. A few weeks ago, a leak revealed that the 🇯🇵 giant had filed a new series of patents related to blockchain and NFTs.
This is the second leak on the subject in just under a year 😅.
According to the initial elements, which have not been commented on by the Tokyo-based group, the new patents concern the possibility of owning and using NFTs in the Playstation manufacturer's games 🎮. There is even mention of the possibility of transferring these NFTs to other universes, and therefore potentially those of competitors.
Without this being written in black and white, this means that Sony could, in time, digitise all the assets of its games, avatars, objects and others in order to make them interoperable with others.
