Epic Games Store will allow games that feature NFT, Blockchain and Crypto technology, PS5 Store add a New Games row, and heyZeusHeresToat is a content creator you should check out on Twitch.

Epic Games Welcomes NFT and Blockchain Games

In an exciting development for the gaming community, Epic Games, the prominent video game developer and publisher, has decided to allow NFT (Non-Fungible Token) games and blockchain technology games on their platform. This decision comes in response to a recent ban from Steam, a popular gaming platform.

Tim Sweeney, co-founder and head of Epic Games, took to Twitter to announce the news. He stated, "Epic Games Store will welcome games that make use of blockchain tech, provided that they follow the relevant laws, disclose their terms, and are age-rated by an appropriate group. Though Epic's not using crypto on our games, we welcome innovation in the areas of technology and finance."

It is interesting to see Epic Games taking this step, considering that NFT and blockchain technology are relatively new concepts in the gaming industry. NFTs are unique digital assets that can represent ownership or proof of authenticity for digital items, such as in-game items, artwork, or collectibles. On the other hand, blockchain technology offers transparency, security, and decentralized control, making it suitable for various applications, including gaming.

While personally, I have not had the opportunity to play any games that feature NFT or blockchain technology, it is exciting to witness the gaming industry embracing innovative technologies. This decision by Epic Games could pave the way for more developers and publishers to explore the possibilities offered by NFTs and blockchain in their games.

PlayStation 5 Store Update

In other news, PlayStation has made an update to its PlayStation Store, specifically for PlayStation 5 users. They have added a new game reel at the top of the store, making it easier for users to find newly released games. This enhancement is a welcome addition, as it allows gamers to quickly browse through the latest releases without any hassle.

Shuhei Yoshida, a prominent figure at PlayStation, shared this news on Twitter, stating, "PlayStation Store on PlayStation 5 now has a new game strand on the top page, making it super easy to find newly released games." This update showcases PlayStation's commitment to improving the user experience and ensuring that gamers have convenient access to the latest titles.

As a PlayStation enthusiast, I appreciate the effort that PlayStation has put into enhancing the user interface and making it more intuitive. The addition of the new game reel on the top page of the PlayStation Store will undoubtedly streamline the process of discovering and exploring newly released games.

heyZeusHeresToast Feature

Lastly, I would like to take this opportunity to highlight the achievements and talent of heyZeusHeresToast, a prominent figure in the gaming community. Known as the "blood God" among his peers, heyZeusHeresToast has made a name for himself primarily through his speedrunning skills in games such as Bloodborne, Sekiro, and other Souls-like games.

heyZeusHeresToast's dedication and skill have earned him recognition, including being featured in Games Done Quick, a popular speedrunning charity event. His ability to complete games at breakneck speeds while showcasing remarkable gameplay strategies is truly awe-inspiring.

Additionally, the PlayStation 5 Store's update improves the user experience by making it easier to discover newly released games. Lastly, heyZeusHeresToast's talent and contributions to the gaming community are remarkable and worthy of recognition. Be sure to check out his content and support him in his future endeavors.
