NFT aside from regular coin/token ensures that no other same token on a network is same. This technology has it's use, not sure if here, but on the bigger picture as if you want to have unique character for example which no other player has in the game. Than you can deploy it as a NFT and that ensure it. But it has to be generated and loaded through the hash, which isn't exactly hard to do.
That's what I keep telling you guys. It's literally an infinite copy. For anyone to even display the unique NPC on everyone's computers it means that everyone has it. All that is actually unique is the NFT code itself, which is basically nothing.I just watched this and its pretty good rant, but also got me to thinking with mod support for STALKER(confirmed) I mean how are they going stop someone copying what someone paid for? What a cluster fuck.

It will be interesting to see if one of these companies screws up a contract and then gets slammed with a cease and desist order from one of the NFT owners.
Essentially from my understanding they are selling partial ownership of the game since they are selling in game assets. They likely at some point will have NFT troll companies arise like the current crop of patent troll companies.
I thought that was the point of NFT. Selling assets from the game that are owned as opposed to access to in game assets which is what we have now with MTX.You don't own any part of the game.
You're never getting anything approaching a copyright, or IP through this method. You're literally just paying for the NFT code itself, which sits in a ledger. When they shut down their game that they own, you have nothing but your NFT code linking to an item in a dead game you don't own the rights to.
NFTs are just the result of using the blockchain technology to artificially create scarcity of digital assets, it's just next level DRMs.
If I buy a skin in COD I am paying for access to use that skin. I assumed if they sold it as an NFT then I own the asset and I can resell it and they cannot resell it again without my permission unless it was in the contract: say only 5000 copies or am I completely wrong.
One directly leads to the other. One game at a time.Depends how they will do it.. if thy really have to implement this crap.
If they will have some in-game assets up for NFT sales for big bucks? who cares.
If it's items, drops and loot being sold as NFTs.... then it's game over man
That is actually a really cool idea. It would be like selling "used" games. Shame it would never happen. Devs(or steam) would be shooting themselves in the footSo if in-game assets can be NFTs, could for example Steam product keys be made as NFTs so you could play the game and then sell the product key forward?
If they find a way to increase their profits via allowing users to sell their product keys, they will probably do it.That is actually a really cool idea. It would be like selling "used" games. Shame it would never happen. Devs(or steam) would be shooting themselves in the foot
I still don't really understand this stuff yet. Should I be mad at it or not?
If things go bad I can always retire from new games and play all the older games without this crap.
Remember when I could just make my own face in Madden 2005? And it was just a gameplay feature? How have FPS games not adopted this feature yet. Instead of all these horrible characters, just let me play as myself and pay for cosmetic items to wear.Remember when fans could be put into the game through winning a free contest or doing something amazing in the community? Or how about when people who were huge fans and ended up passing away were added into various games in some shape or form as a gesture of appreciation and remembrance?
Yeah fuck that, pay us for the privilege. The only limit is how big your bank account is!
Yeah but why is that desirable?. Is it a situation where the 'owner' has like copyright on that knife, and only they can use it or something?.
I mean its cool i suppose, if you care about stuff like that.
This is FUD from the Greta Thunberg types. Especially since the energy needed to run NFTs could be made from renewables. It's a complete non-issue.
They're selling a way to become an NPC in the game. I don't see it as shady. Many Kickstarter games have done the same (or something similar).If it sounds like shady bullshit then it probably is. My worry isn't so much the shit they are telling us about, but the shit they are not. Stalker 2 just went from a game that was interested in to a game I don't entirely trust.
Microsoft needs to be asking questions about this as well as they are promoting this game for Game Pass.
There is no free energy, there are no free resources
See all the people who are trying desperately to defend NFTs? Don't ever listen to a word they say. Don't trust them as they are easily duped, gullible, or just maliciously ignorant.
The whole thing is reliant on the greater fool theory.
The ones heavily promoting it and trying to get other people to buy in know what they are doing.
If you want a simplistic view of it, but can't wrap your head around unique digital ownership, think about ready player one.
Dumb and cynical but ultimately fairly unobtrusive. It reminds me of like a Kickstarter reward or something.
