Sony to integrate discord into PlayStation


Sony wants to do business with Discord, and for this they have partnered so that PlayStation users can enjoy the Discord experiences early next year.

They have not yet given much detail of what that integration will look like, but Sony says the two companies are "working hard to connect Discord with their social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network."

It's still too early to find out if Discord will have a comprehensive app on PlayStation consoles or whether it will be a more limited integration (such as connecting PSN and Discord accounts to chat more easily with friends off-platform), but the news is expected on the subject in the coming months, before launch.

At the same time, Sony has reported that it is investing an uns specified amount of money in Discord as part of its H Series investment round as a minority investor.

Discord continues to stand out as one of the largest online communities in the gaming world. In December they had more than 140 million users active, and over the last few weeks, we have been seeing how there was interest on the part of Microsoft to buy the platform (surely to integrate it with Xbox, just as Sony wants to do with PS).

It is clear that Discord has much more value when it does not have a partial owner, as in this way it can continue to offer its service to all games without showing preferences of any platform.
