Some or all of the Castlevania NFTs say that there's unlockable assets.  So it seems they're getting "something" that a non-owner doesn't have access to.  I'm guessing these unlockables are higher resolutions of the videos or images?  If they then go ahead and post that picture or share it on the internet, then they won't really own anything special other than the receipt. 

I'm also curious if the owner would be able to hide the digital asset once purchased.  Does the auction page disappear once there's a buyer and then if you didn't save the file (publicly accessible representation of the asset) and didn't buy the asset, do you then lose your chance save the file if you don't find it posted by someone else who did or the item goes for auction again?

Legend has it that Konami is laundering money in the cavity of the “Wall Meat” NFT…

Just makes them look scummy and lazy.

As opposed to just being regular lazy with the pachislot and gacha games they've been haucking until now.

They hadn't even reached their ultimate scum form yet.

Seems like the auction was a success and there will probably be more.  I’m sure other properties are coming, but wonder how long it would be before another Castlevania one comes out.  Environmental issues aside, I think they’re rather neat.  They belong in a museum.  Sure, the average gamer can’t really get on the bidding game when they’re this pricy, but anyone can enjoy the artwork or even add it to their own “favorites” gallery (i think).  It’s kind of entertaining to watch the value of these things.  I just hope the time they spend producing these doesn’t detract them from making a new game and would like to think it’d encourage them to do so.  We’ll see how long this “fad” lasts though haha.  I feel bad for anyone who gets burned buying these things and losing money.  Hope they’re all able to take the hit.

That's the only way NFTs can appreciate. That's how the money pool gets bigger.

If the success of the Netflix series didn't convince them to start developing a new game, I don't think this fad will.

The thing that I really hate about this is that it's not too far along after the whole Wada/Heritage Auctions thing started getting heat. I'm not saying that situation is related to this, other than both being about entities wanting to find a low-effort way to make money off of gaming nostalgia.

Heh, true. I guess I did understate the do-nothing business strategy of Konami when it comes to their IPs. I shudder to think about what they'll actually try next while not giving anything close to a shit.
It's like Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, but instead it's Who Wants Fried Chicken? I do.

At least the results might discourage other companies from adding gameplay elements to NFTs.  I don’t think I’d be happy if the price of a dlc is based on the marketplace.

And of course, they didn't factor in seven simple words that can bring the whole thing down:

"Right click. Save as. Share with others."

Tell that to all those NFT buyers. Idiots, all of them.

it'd be interesting if we got a set of nfts for the 35th anniversary of every konami game made =o.  35 is such a strange anniversary.
