Xbox head Phil Spencer has expressed his concerns about current NFT-based game projects that feel “more about discovery than entertainment.”
In an interview with Axios, Spencer said the current situation with NFT in games is a lot of “speculation and experimentation,” and added that exploration games aren’t the type of content he wants on the Xbox store.
“All I want to say today on NFT is that I think there’s a lot of speculation and experimentation going on, and some of the creations I see today are more of a sense of discovery than of entertainment. “, I said.
“I don’t think every NFT game needs to be explored. I just think we’re on the journey of the people who learn it. And I can understand that early on you’ve probably seen a lot of things perhaps. Not something you want in your store.
“I think anything we’ve looked at in our storefront that we say is exploratory is going to be something we want to, you know, take action. We don’t want to. that kind of content.”
We also recently spoke with Zynga president Bernard Kim on this topic, discussing Environmental impact, tax impact of NFTs, and more.
