Following PlayStation’s mention of Shiba Inu, some SHIB enthusiasts believe the upcoming puzzle game is themed after the cryptocurrency.
However, the upcoming Humanity game is not themed after the 15th-largest cryptocurrency by market capitalization.
PlayStation’s mention of Shiba Inu was due to game design. Notably, players will take on the role of a Shiba Inu dog, tasked with guiding crowds through different trials and unlocking new powers.
Some Shiba Inu enthusiasts are yet to understand the game concept, hoping to get more details from SHIB team members.
SHIB Holders Can Buy PlayStation Gift Cards
Although the upcoming Humanity game is entirely unrelated to Shiba Inu, SHIB holders can still use the token to purchase PlayStation gift cards, thanks to BitPay.
BitPay allows users to buy PlayStation gift cards using Shiba Inu as a payment method.
According to BitPay, gamers must download the BitPay app and select PlayStation from the gift card section. Choose the amount you want to buy and pay with SHIB.
