PlayStation is conducting a survey at Evo fighting game tournament asking players to tell them which type of NFT they are most passionate about.
Evo is taking place between August 5 and 7, and Twitter user Snorlax Ownz shared a survey from PlayStation at the event – as Sony bought Evo last year – saying: “A special PlayStation quest at Evo is asking players about what gaming NFTs they want to see from PlayStation.”
IGN has confirmed the presence of the survey at the event, which comes after the announcement of PlayStation Stars, a rewards program that was promised to “definitely not” be NFTs.

As part of the survey, PlayStation asked users “what do you collect most?” then provided a list with the follow-up question “which of the following NFT/Digital Collectibles would you most be interested in purchasing?” The list is as follows:
- Favourite music artists
- Favorite Esports teams/players
- PlayStation items
- Favorite Game Characters
The presence of this survey doesn’t confirm or deny that PlayStation is in-fact going into NFTs, but it does seem to indicate that the platform holder is considering it.
Daniel Ahmad, an analyst with Niko Partners, was then tweeted about how this isn’t actually related to the rewards program: “This isn’t related to PlayStation Stars in this case, digital collectables is just a term that is used interchangeably with NFTs.”
Developers claim that GameStop is selling indie NFTs to them without their consent. Someone on the company’s marketplace has apparently been selling HTML 5 games they did not make, and don’t have the permission to sell.
A court case about the matter is also available. Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare This was because the court ruled the plaintiff never played the game it claimed to be based on.
