I caught this one while writing an article about EA and all the money it is making and it looks like Niantic are already making great efforts to destroy its own game.. at least in my opinions and opinions will differ on this
We posted just yesterday about the launch of the latest AR offering called Peridot and while the thought in that post in generally is “it looks like fun but I do not like AR games” .. we honestly thought the idea had a lot of promise for a long term playing of the game much like the once upon a time craze that was tamagotchis
Today however we learn that Amazon has put its nasty crap into the game and not its just a way for them to figure out what you have, what you need and how to sell it to you. When the article was being written yesterday about the launch an urge of calling it an NFT style of game was resisted but seems its way worse.. its another shopping portal
Amazon announced today that it’s launching a new shopping platform called Amazon Anywhere. This new “immersive shopping experience” allows customers to purchase real items within virtual worlds like games. The company is rolling the Anywhere experience out first within Peridot, Niantic’s new AR pet simulator mobile game.
