Without a doubt the gaming world will be the next big player to make the leap to NFTs, despite the still great rejection presented by many users. However, beyond the additional content within the games themselves, it seems that the companies themselves want to give themselves a little more exposure by taking advantage of these digital tokens.
Specifically, this time It was none other than Atarihistorical creator of some of the most iconic classic consoles in the world, who has decided to celebrate his 50th anniversary with the launch of the so-called GFTs, loot boxes that will randomly contain one of the various NFT contents created for the occasion .
“As a celebration of the brand that launched the modern gaming industry. The Atari 50th Anniversary Commemorative GFT Collection pays tribute to 50 years of Atari, celebrating the exciting future ahead while commemorating the iconic Atari 2600 console and fan-favorite games like Combat, Swordquest, Asteroids, Centipede and more“, shared the company.
As we can read in the recently opened official store of these GFTs, this collection will have up to 10 different tokens, divided into three rarity ranges Common, Rare and Epic, with aperture percentages ranging from 0.2% to 35%. However, the company did not come to specify if there is a limited number of units, or if on the contrary, there will be an indefinite number only limited by this probability.
However, unlike traditional NFTs, these Atari GFTs are presented as a gift for a third more than for a personal purchase (although one can always buy them as a gift for oneself), adding the curious addition of not being able to open until the expiry of a specific date, next February 1.
So Atari joins Konamianother video game veteran who made his NFT debut with the sale of some Exclusive Castlevania content for over $160,000; and Ubisoft, which is committed to offering exclusive content in its own games to provide additional utility for these elements.
