PlayStation and Discord decided to collaborate! Will this partnership put Discord’s community and chat features on the gaming platform?
Sony’s PlayStation decided to partner with Discord, one of the biggest chat and community platforms. Could this collaboration lead to something big? What should the consoles expect from their partnership?
PlayStation and Discord’s announcements surprised some experts and other game analysts since it is an unpredictable one. The collaboration comes after some rumors, claiming that Microsoft was already in talks with Discord to acquire the chat community, circulated on the internet.
However, Microsoft’s talks with Discord ended at the end of April. Because of this, PlayStation made a big grab since it is now trying to acquire or partner with Discord. If this really comes true, it will be a huge innovation that the console’s fans can really enjoy.
As of the moment, Xbox platforms are integrated with Discord. Although this is the case, this feature is still limited, forcing the Xbox console fans to link their two accounts so that their friends on Discord can see the popular titles they are playing. Meanwhile, PlayStation fans could have a better experience once Discord and Microsoft’s competitor release their new technology.
What Should You Expect From the New Partnership?
Right now, it is still unclear if PlayStation‘s integration of Discord service will be better than Xbox’s current feature. However, some experts claimed that Sony’s console will have a better feature once Discord’s technology is integrated with it.
Sony announced the new PlayStation and Discord collaboration via its official website. This blog post was also posted by the company’s president and CEO Jim Ryan.
Sony’s CEO confirmed that PlayStation has already made a minority investment in Discord as part of a deal between the two companies to bring their experience together. This innovation is expected to be launch this year. However, Sony and Discord still haven’t confirmed the exact date.
The giant game company confirmed the new partnership with Discord after PS5 received its first big triple-A game launch in “Returnal.” On the other hand, Sony’s official blog post didn’t provide any details regarding the upcoming feature developed with Discord.
Because of this, the console’s fans are currently having a hard time knowing what are the new things they could expect from the giant game company and Discord partnership. Although this is the case, some analysts explained that it is really simple to know how Sony’s console will offer Discord’s community and chat features.
Some rumors claimed that the giant game company will have its consoles’ integrated with Discord’s chat features, allowing players to share their screenshots and video captures with their friends on the giant chat and video platform.
On the other hand, the giant game company previously released a new patent that shows a new button for PS consoles. The patent explained that this button could be used to access Discord’s chat features. However, these are all still rumors. Whatever the outcome may be, Sony console’s fans could still expect an exciting gaming innovation.
