Sony announces investment and partnership with Discord to bring the chat app to PlayStation – TechCrunch
Sony and Discord have announced a partnership that will integrate the latter’s popular gaming-focused chat app with PlayStation’s own built-in social tools. The exact nature of the partnership is not expressed in the brief announcement post. Discord has partnered with console platforms before, though its deal with Microsoft was not a particularly deep integration. While the new PlayStation is better than the old one when it comes to voice chat, the old one wasn’t great to begin with, and Discord is not just easier to use but something millions of gamers already do use daily. Sony has done its part, financially speaking, by taking part in Discord’s recent $100 million H round.
