When video games enter the online realm, communication and community are very important. Among all the companies that are able to provide this convenience, whether on the PC or mobile market, Discord stands out as the most popular. Through him, many gaming communities are formed and active, complete with easy organization via features such as voice chat for joint gaming action. Over the past few weeks, there have been rumors that Discord will end up being bought by Microsoft for a dozen billion USD. But a surprise suddenly arrived!
Instead of Microsoft, it was Playstation that ended up announcing a partnership with Discord along with its 140 million users worldwide. There is no concrete form yet, but this collaboration is said to connect Discord with the gaming and social experiences of the Playstation Network. Sony says that the ultimate goal is to make the Discord and Playstation experience closer to their console or mobile app, where friends, groups, communities will be able to interact and communicate more easily while playing games together.
With this announcement, Sony also announced a small investment in Discord itself for an undisclosed figure. They promised to share more details in the next few months. What do you think? Do you welcome the positive relationship between the two of them?
