The Zilliqa Gaming Console will be released in 2023
Access to the Gaming Hub for beta testing will still start in October. However, it will take a while before the Zilliqa Gaming Console is available for purchase. According to Valentin Cobelea, Head of Gaming Technology at Zilliqa, a release in the second quarter of 2023 is targeted. Pre-orders should be possible as early as in the first quarter of 2023. It remains to be seen what price will be.
Performance of the Web 3.0 console
The console should have quite a bit of power, as it is supposed to be equipped with an Intel i9 processor and an NVIDIA 1650 graphics card. A resolution of 1440p and a frame rate of 60FPS is supposed to be possible. While this means it can’t keep up with flagships like the Xbox Series X or Playstation 5, it certainly exceeds the requirements of current blockchain titles.
Play to Earn for the next generation
So far, the quality of blockchain games has left a lot to be desired. The existing titles lacked appeal and mostly ended up on the sidelines as mobile games. This is now to change with the new Zilliqa Game Console. According to the manufacturer, it will be possible to play first-party titles on it. The tokens earned can be converted directly into fiat (normal currency) with the help of the integrated Web 3.0 wallet. Initially, two in-house titles are to be released for the console. But according to Valentin Cobelea, there were many discussions already about the “potential” to include more blockchain titles to drive growth in this market.
Playing high-quality titles and making money in the process. That should certainly interest crypto fans. In any case, the console seems to be the answer to today’s needs and has the potential to appeal to a broad player base.
