Announcing PlayStation’s new Partnership with Discord, it will integrate with your social experience on PlayStation beginning early next year


Recommended Posts

Fucking awesome.

 

 

Jim Ryan, President & CEO

At PlayStation, we’re constantly looking for new ways to enable players around the world to connect with one another, form new friendships and communities, and share fun experiences and lasting memories. It’s in this spirit that we’re excited to announce a new partnership with Discord, the communication service popularized by gamers and used by more than 140 million people every month around the world.
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.
To bring these experiences to life for our players, Sony Interactive Entertainment has made a minority investment as part of Discord’s Series H round. From our very first conversation with co-founders Jason Citron and Stan Vishnevskiy, I was inspired by their lifelong love for gaming and our teams’ shared passion to help bring friends and communities together in new ways. Empowering players to create communities and enjoy shared gaming experiences is at the heart of what we do, so we are beyond excited to start this journey with one of the world’s most popular communication services.

Ah, I guess the people running Discord were more interested in achieving significant long-term growth rather than cashing out right now.

 

Probably because after achieving even more growth of their service, they could cash out for even more money later on.

Discord has been partnered with Microsoft for three years you autistic dunce

 

It went from MS buying Discord to them improving their relationship with PS. How is this not a positive for Sony. PS got something positive it did not already have when it looked like they would never be able to just a week ago.

 

LMAO so when Xbox or PC gets a game that PS has already had yous both don't lose your minds? :biggrin:

Both of you begging for things Sony already has on the daily and claim huge ownage when MS gets them but now the other way around 'isn't even a get'. 

Good to know :mj:

Nobody said it wasn't a positive..  but it's certainly not a "get"... meaning that Sony would have something over MS...

 

LMAO losing your shit over Discord integration :rofl:

:biggrin: The PC begging for things Sony has had for years coming in with this argument is hilarious. 

Good to know when PC gets Bloodborne after half a decade that you will be just 'get with the times', 'not even a get', right? :reg:

 

'losing my shit'? lol one post that triggered you and Dyno

That would be a get. Even a decade later, it signals Sony going multiplatform which they already have. Getting discord integration should have happened years ago.

Apparently a 'get' is 'meaning that Sony would have something over MS'.

Sorry but it seems that even if MS got Sony exclusives day 1 then it's not a 'get' since it isn't MS getting something over Sony, it's them getting the same thing Sony has already had.

 Sorry I don't make the rules :francis: Blame Remij.

lmao.. Discord is a 3rd party app... it's already integrated into PC and Xbox for years now.

 

Bloodborne is a PS4 exclusive game published by Sony....  Of course PC getting it would be a "get" because it doesn't appear anywhere else other than Playstation.  If Bloodborne came to PC AND Xbox at the same time... then it wouldn't be a "get" for the PC...

 

And yes... you're losing your shit.. over Discord :D

'MS is buying Discord'

 

'Slow johnny' is becoming a compliment :tom:

MS actually were in advanced talks to buy them... lmfao

 

And you're acting like the deal fell through because Discord instead wanted to partner with Sony over some integration... that's what your post read like :rofls: 

 

"omg they dumped MS and went with Sony... what a GET!!!" :rofl:
