SEGA SAMMY HOLDINGS lately addressed their in-game NFT plans in the annual management meeting. Currently, the company does not have any solid plans and will keep on to test the best way to introduce NFTs. SEGA originally planned to release NFTs via Play-to-Earn (P2E) games the previous summer. Meanwhile, the announcement received a lot of negative reactions, mainly by longtime SEGA fans.
The management meeting was highly anticipated because it generally shows the company’s core decisions and also future directions. The Chairman and Vice President of SEGA SAMMY HOLDINGS, together with the Chairman of SEGA CORPORATION, pointed out the organization in addressing the latest concerns and upcoming prospects.
There are many factors to consider. Initially, the company aims to make sure that the initiative is not just another money-making opportunity, but a precious addition to their games. They also want to make sure that all their upcoming gaming models follow Japanese rules. Finally, the management plans to reduce any negative elements which NFT gaming may provide.
Some fans have expressed their frustration in the industry pioneer. One of the main subjects was the environmental effect that NFTs may have. Actually, SEGA’s Sonic the Hedgehog itself is an ecologist, fighting Dr. Eggman’s threat to the planet. Some vulgar and disrespectful comments were obvious. There is even a petition to overturn this decision.
