The Most Watched Game Trailer Isn’t GTA VI, But This Game

The GTA VI trailer which was recently released has indeed succeeded in attracting gamers’ attention. However, even though the number of viewers gathered is so large, in fact the video made by Rockstar is still inferior to the popularity of mobile games.

If you visit the Rockstar Games YouTube channel now, you can see the trailer for the latest GTA series, which has been watched 168 million times. This number is enough to overthrow the Minecraft trailer which was released 12 years ago.

Mojang as the developer of Minecraft, through its one minute video, has currently succeeded in getting 167 million views. But at that time it only placed it in second place, as the most watched video game trailer.

Unfortunately Rockstar is still not halfway there, to beat the most watched game trailer which was successfully snatched by Subway Surfers. Published in 2012, the trailer has been watched more than 361 million times, as quoted by Game Station from IGN, Thursday (18/1/2024).

Even so, it looks like the GTA VI trailer still has a big chance of winning the title. Because this game will only be officially released in 2025. Maybe when it actually launches, this opportunity can be realized.

Moreover, gamers are very enthusiastic about this new Rockstar game. Because after many rumors circulated, they finally confirmed that they would bring him in.

Meanwhile, Take-Two Interactive, which is in charge of publishing it, said that when it is released, GTA VI will not be available on PC. So gamers can only play it on PS5, Xbox Series

The Sandbox, a Minecraft-style game that can earn cryptocurrency

Recently, The Sandbox game has been on the rise, which is a game similar to Minecraft where players can earn crypto money in it. So what is The Sandbox?

The Sandbox is a game that provides a metaverse experience in it, namely players can gather in a virtual world, and apart from playing, they can also create assets to sell using cryptocurrency.

This game itself was created with the Ethererum blockchain, one of the most popular cryptocurrencies today. In this game, the ‘currency’ used is $SAND, which is an ERC-20 utility token that can be used for various in-game transactions.

Digital assets created by players include various things related to adventures or stories, be it characters, in-game items, equipment or digital decoration items, as quoted by Game Station from IGN, Friday (17/12/2021).

The game itself can be said to be similar to Minecraft, where players can create whatever they want. The goods they make can then be sold using the $SAND currency, and these assets can then be sold freely in the form of non-fungible tokens (NFT).

There are three main products that form the ecosystem of The Sandbox, namely:

1.VoxEdit, where users can create 3D objects in The Sandbox metaverse

2.Sandbox Marketplace, which is a ‘marketplace’ for players to sell and buy products.

3.Sandbox Game Maker, where players can create their own 3D games for free.

Don’t worry, even though it involves making various digital items, players don’t need to have in-depth knowledge of coding, because the software provided by The Sandbox is fairly user-friendly.

Recently, Adidas Originals also marketed its products in NFT form and can be used exclusively in this game. Not only that, Adidas also bought a plot of virtual land, which they will fill with content and various exclusive experiences for their users.
