Valve said it has updated its rules for posting games on Steam to ban blockchain-based games that allow receiving or exchanging cryptocurrencies or NFTs.
Literally immediately after the appearance of the relevant news, it became known that Epic Games, on the contrary, is open to such games in its store. Perhaps Epic Games would not have somehow acted in this direction, but in this case, the emphasis was probably placed precisely on the opposition to Steam.
Epic Games representatives noted that there will be certain restrictions for the aforementioned games, but the company is ready to work with developers in a new area.
Epic says games must comply with financial laws, clearly explain how blockchain is used, and have appropriate age ratings. It also states that developers will not be able to use Epic’s payment service to accept cryptocurrency, instead they will have to use their own payment systems.
At the moment, games using NFT are rare and are mostly known to those who are actively interested in the cryptocurrency market as well. However, many analysts believe that NFT will greatly affect the gaming market in the foreseeable future, opening up new opportunities.

As it became known, Sony is preparing a new PlayStation Spartacus service, which will feature games from the PlayStation, PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3 and possibly PlayStation Portable consoles. Scheduled to launch next fall, it will be a response to Microsoft’s Xbox Gamepass service.
The source of Bloomberg was a Sony employee who asked to remain anonymous. He has access to documents with such information. PlayStation Spartacus will be integrated with other services of the company: PS Plus and PS Now. The new service will be available on both PS4 and PS5.
The PlayStation Spartacus will be split into three categories, in one of which users will be able to stream classic games from PS1, PS2, PS3 as well as PSP. Another category will have an extensive catalog of options for the PS4, and a third for the PS5. At the same time, the service will not include games from the PS Vita, which Sony itself considers a failure.
