After the issue of Discord and the possible acquisition by Microsoft burst like a soap bubble, competitor Sony is now right around the corner and announces a new cooperation with the popular communication platform Discord on Monday, May 3. 2021 at night.
For users of PlayStation consoles, the partnership between Sony and Discord should make itself felt starting next year, it is said. Consequently, the beginning of 2022 is to begin integrating the “social experience” that Discord makes possible on PlayStation.
Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony, notes that PlayStation is constantly looking for new ways to enable gamers around the world to connect, make friends and have fun experiences in the community, as well as exchange lasting memories.
Sony participates in Discord
Discord is now used by more than 140 million people every month. The respective teams are already working together to combine the social aspect of Discord with the gaming experience of PlayStation Network. In addition to the console, the combined experience of the possibilities of Discord and PlayStation will be brought together on the mobile phone to make communication even easier. Whether it’s playing games, having fun, or just spending time together.
In the course of the cooperation revealed today, Sony Interactive Entertainment acquired a minority stake in Discord. Ryan himself has been inspired by his idea of bringing friends and communities together in new ways since the first conversation with Discord co-founders Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy.
The possibilities for players to form communities and enjoy game experiences together is at the heart of all cooperation.
