The PS5’s voice chat deserves to be there, but it lacks the functionality to be truly comprehensive, especially when compared to PC genre standards like Discord. Luckily, Sony just announced via a blog post that Discord would finally make its way to its console.
The first users to be able to take advantage of it are those registered in the beta program, but it seems obvious that the novelty will arrive shortly in the weeks to come.
The arrival of Discord is certainly the most important element of this update. It will allow PC and PS5 players to share the same voice room. Here is what it looks like:
Is Sony targeting PC gamers?
Other important additions are coming to this update, such as the ability to download your captures directly to the PlayStation application or the migration of data saved using the PlayStation Network from a PS4 to the PS5. It was a real lack at the launch of the console and finally Sony fixed the problem.
More broadly, in this update, we can no doubt note Sony’s desire to attract PC gamers to them. Discord compatibility is a strong marker, but also the arrival of VRR on 1440p, a typical definition of PC screens supported on the console since July 2022.
With the maddening rise in the price of laptops or the surge in the price of graphics cards, Sony undoubtedly has a card to play with a console capable of displaying 1440p at only 550 euros, while strengthening the capacity of its console to blend into a typical PC gamer setup and ecosystem. With consoles finally available in stores, the offensive can begin.
