A future that would be completely at odds with the status quo that prevailed until recently seems to be suggested by the evolving gaming landscape and the expectations placed on NFTs. Previously, it may have been assumed that NFTs and gaming were two distinct components of avenues that would never intersect.
Games and NFTs have become an unbreakable combination as a result of the mutually beneficial benefits they provide.
The trend of gaming has been around for a while. The price of NFTs is increasing, which is evidence that the years 2020 and 2021 could be regarded as the "golden age" of NFTs. Millions of dollars, if not billions of dollars, in NFT sales, were frequently seen.
The NFT space has also been affected by the earthquakes that shook the crypto industry. On the surface, this might have caused a little decline in NFT use and value. This was a benefit in disguise, too, as it made it easier to tell great NFT projects from subpar ones.
Gaming was one of the most obvious applications that NFTs could investigate. NFTs' introduction into the gaming industry served as a panacea, particularly for players who had little reluctance to spend their money on gaming equipment with a finite shelf life.
The year 2022 and a tiny portion of the final quarter of 2021 could be regarded as the beginning of the NFT era in the gaming industry.
2023 is anticipated to see the transition of NFT gaming from adolescence to adulthood. These are the NFT gaming trends to look out for in 2023 at this pivotal time.
The focus of mainstream gaming will shift toward NFTs.
Sony recently submitted patent applications for the use of digital collectibles in its console gaming ecosystem. One of the faces of the towering gaming totem pole is the PlayStation, and if they enter the NFT market, it is obvious that the gaming industry is changing.
You can definitely anticipate that the hard-core traditional gamers, also known as gaming purists, will become more familiar with concepts of NFTs and the benefits that they bring to the table when mainstream gaming companies (we're not just talking about console manufacturers but also game development companies) get into NFTs.
Gaming will be viewed by businesses as a metaverse brand-building platform.
Brands entering athletic arenas is nothing new. No, we're not talking about obvious companies that support football clubs like Adidas; rather, we're talking about completely unrelated companies like Emirates. You can anticipate that brands will have a large presence in the virtual digital environment because many games will go into the metaverse.
Full-fledged metaverse sporting events featuring brand partnerships and sponsorships wouldn't be shocking. Brands will have the chance to increase their visibility on this cutting-edge digital platform, especially among a population that is on this cutting-edge digital platform, especially among a population that is online and tech-savvy! P2E will gain popularity as a source of income.
