Discord Is Finally Coming to PlayStation Consoles Next Year

At last, Discord is finally making its debut on gaming consoles thanks to a new partnership with PlayStation. The instant messaging app has been available on PC and mobile phones for years now, with advanced text, voice and video chat functionality that consoles have been missing.

Sony is currently working with Discord to natively integrate the app’s services with the PlayStation network’s current feature set.

“Together, our teams are already hard at work connecting Discord with your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network. Our goal is to bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year, allowing friends, groups, and communities to hang out, have fun, and communicate more easily while playing games together.”– Jim Ryan, President of SIE.

As a part of this new partnership, PlayStation has made a minority investment in Discord. It’s quite ironic to see Discord partnering with PlayStation when just a few weeks ago we heard rumours about Microsoft potentially acquiring the chat service.

The details on how the app’s features will be married to the current PlayStation network haven’t been revealed, although that might change soon with E3 fast approaching. With Microsoft squishing the boundaries between PC gaming and Xbox consoles, PlayStation’s move to embrace a cross-platform friendly communications platform makes sense.
