I will no longer have to use my phone Bluetooth in one ear and my PC headset hanging off the other ear.

u/Bartman326 May 03 '21

I do headphones on top of earbud lol it's awful

19

u/istolejujusbike May 03 '21

Wouldn’t your friends just hear all your gameplay then?

31

u/abroaderr May 03 '21

Matters where your microphone is. I use wired earbuds to my phone and wired headphones for the game. The earbud’s mic comes outside of the game audio so they don’t hear a thing. This setup does hurt my ears though

8

u/istolejujusbike May 03 '21

Ahh okay. I was picturing buddy using air pods or something. That makes more sense

6

u/Bartman326 May 04 '21

Funnily enough the nice headset is being used for discord and the nice 3d audio compatible video game is getting the 20$ earbuds

3

u/istolejujusbike May 04 '21

Lmfao gotta do what ya gotta do

5

u/niceaccountman May 04 '21

lmaoo i do this too. Every time I take them off i can feel my ear canal expanding by a couple centimeters

1

u/Bartman326 May 04 '21

its so annoying after an hour or two. The Xbox headset that can hook up to the console and discord is such a dream but at least with this news the problem will go away completely.

u/Cheeft May 03 '21

200 IQ tho.

3

u/Bartman326 May 04 '21

well after the headache its more like 162 IQ

u/you-cant-twerk May 04 '21

I was in the process of making this cable for my cousin that would be a 2 device -> 1 headphone so you could plug your phone and controller into a headset and talk to both. Then my cousin bought a PC and it was no longer needed. Never finished nor tested if it would work. But I have all the parts to make cables now!

2

u/studdlypig May 04 '21

That actually sounds pretty cool. Maybe one day you'll get it to work

1

u/Eduardo-izquierdo May 03 '21

I use 2 headsets

1

u/Nirvlime May 04 '21

Have you tried installing PS Remote Play on PC and joining a party through the app? Seems to work okay for me.

1

u/studdlypig May 04 '21

Actually didn't even know that was a thing , I'll have to try that next time. Than you!

1

u/Just_Games04 May 10 '21

Don't get your hopes up tho, you need much stronger connection than, let's say, share play. Even my 150mb/s wifi couldn't do it

1

u/Nakertaja 23d ago

You can always have remote play on low quality and watch your tv. Controller input is barely noticeable. Of course this kind of setup needs to be close to your tv if you don't have wireless headset and sony's dongle for dualshock, but I've done it few times.

u/pineappleundies May 03 '21

If done correctly, this could be huge for cross platform games and make playing with others so much easier

u/folkdeath95 May 03 '21

Please god let me use Discord with PC friends on Warzone instead of their absolute shithole in-game comms.

38

u/ntnkrm May 03 '21

My friends and I found out you could change how you sound in game and you can sound like how you could in MW2 so we put it on and re-enacted the “I’m a pussy and I use riot shield” lobby

So it isn’t all bad

19

u/Chooklin May 04 '21

“Yum yum yum yum yum I eat d***s all day!”

77

u/Helian7 Prime_D7 May 03 '21

I only played it a little but me(ps5) and my duo(pc) could barely get the damn thing to work at all. Sometimes I couldn't hear him, sometimes him me. Sometimes the party failed and we had to restart the game. Definitely needs work does cross platform.

u/Doolandeer May 04 '21

Or if you can't afford that, I use my cellphones in-ear headphones with the Discord app, and throw my gaming over the ear headphones on top of that.

2

u/BadNewsBears808 May 04 '21

This is the real answer

2

u/BLACKMAAN May 04 '21

Hi, can you let me know which exact headphone you use? Thanks!

u/ohhfasho May 04 '21

Just make the rest of your family use discord in their phones like I did Lol

2

u/Hollow_Sans May 04 '21

It's called immersion /s

208

u/afatmess Zuawg May 03 '21

It would be great for me and my friends who play FFXIV. Some of us are on PS4 and some of us are on PC so having Discord integrated with PlayStation would be super convenient.

30

u/gtetrakai May 03 '21

You can sort of do it now already; I set this up for a couple of people in our static who are on ps4. You basically need a second instance of discord running on your computer and a ps4 to run a group chat for the ps4 players. There are guides online to do it and it's pretty easy if you have all the cables already. If you don't, then its an Amazon purchase away.

155

u/eoten May 03 '21

That's too much work and expense for a casual.

50

u/4Coffins May 03 '21

I’ve just been connecting to my friends on discord via the phone app

17

u/Scarkaiser May 03 '21

This is what I have been doing too.

23

u/Promethe_S Enter PSN ID May 03 '21

That works but it's hard to hear and focus on the the discord call when I have headphones on

1

u/miseri6325 May 04 '21

There are a handful of headsets out there that allow you to use both Discord and in game audio at the same time. That's what I do.

-1

u/SwarthyRuffian May 03 '21

Or they could just run discord from their phone

u/theblackfool May 03 '21

I hope the fact that they are saying it's going to take a year to implement means they are doing it right.

13

u/greasybirdfeeder May 03 '21

Well they are taking till early 2022 to implement a chat app so hopefully thats enough time not to fuck it up.

6

u/wajdaan_b May 04 '21

and it took 7 years to make CP2077..... i'm kidding. i really hope discord integration means more than just a rich presence as your status, but actual cross-platform voice chat because games like rocket league really need that

6

u/you-cant-twerk May 04 '21

Just the idea of being able to enjoy any game, and be able to sit with my friends in a chat while they're on PC or PS5 sounds amazing.

2

u/mahtaliel May 04 '21

Yeah, this could be awesome. I play Final Fantasy 14 with a friend who's on pc and i've been using discord on my phone so far. Which drains the phone battery superquickly. it would be great to be able to use discord on the ps4 instead

5

u/ILikeSugarCookies May 03 '21

Really hope Xbox can work something out with them too so Playstation and Xbox bros can party up together as well. I had a PC-PS-Xbox Warzone party last night and game chat in that game (and most others) is so inhibiting.

1

u/[deleted] May 05 '21

1

u/ILikeSugarCookies May 05 '21

No it doesn't. It's simply account linking that tracks gaming. You can't join discord parties for chat.

2

u/Anomaly1134 May 03 '21

This is huge!!! Is Microsoft already partnered, or is this an exclusive deal?

7

u/NeoKnife May 04 '21

Microsoft tried to buy them out. Looks like the partnership with Sony was a better offer.

1

u/dudu0407 May 04 '21

True.Can’t agree more.

-5

u/Plague-Doctor66 May 03 '21

Do you really expect that from Sony?

5

u/pineappleundies May 03 '21

I expect anything at this point. They said crossplay wouldn't happen and they're 100% on board with that so never say never. Granted, they can still make it shit but I doubt discord would allow it

88

u/SkrallTheRoamer May 03 '21

awesome, was waiting for this for a long time. just hope it will come to ps4 aswell. great feature for crossplay games or just chatting with friends on another system. the playstation party system is lacking a lot of options.

42

u/lilfrosty808 May 03 '21

They said they were committed to working it with PS4 too! Let’s fucking go!

u/TheRealBroseph May 04 '21

But there's nothing in the actual article that shows they're planning on PS4 integration

as long as there isn't a quote from a Sony or discord person specifically confirming ps4 support the website might just assume...

u/sensual_manatee May 03 '21

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.

It’s always a privilege to work with great partners to bring fresh experiences to our fans, and we’ll have more to share in the coming months. Stay tuned to our channels and @Discord for all the latest updates.

u/MapleStoryPSN May 03 '21

Watch Sony exclude the PS4 in this partnership.

226

u/srbman 73 400 May 03 '21

While that's very likely, they did spend a lot of time breaking the old PS4 chat system to line it up with the PS5. Maybe that'll mean PS4 will get the Discord features as well.

75

u/tanker3061 May 03 '21

I hope so but I think PS4 didn't get that recent party update that PS5 did with the voice modifier on individual party members so they might just slowly be tryna drop it. But I really wish I'm wrong

36

u/srbman 73 400 May 03 '21

Yea, I can honestly see it going either way. It really depends on whether Discord would replace existing Parties or just be an extra option on the side. If it's replacing the current parties, then it'll have to be on PS4 as well so they don't suddenly alienate 100+ million people. If it's just an extra option, then it might just be for PS5.

10

u/HotTakes4HotCakes May 03 '21 edited May 03 '21

I don't think it's going to be on PS4 because that would require manpower and time to add the functionality into the PS4 to update it, which Sony is understandably not willing to spend that money on. Adjusting the PS4 chat functionality to align it with PS5 is different than integrating entirely new functionality involving third party software. If they add anything it'll be the simplest things, not true integration.

Much as we may not like it, PS4 is old software now and companies don't typically invest in new features for old software if its predecessor is out. That's pretty typical of tech in general, really, not just console gaming. They will maintain older software, they rarely improve it, I'd for no other reason than they want to compel you to update.

Besides, the alterations to the PS4 chat system were probably part of the development of the PS5 from the get go. They're only just announcing a partnership now, and by the time they have something ready, the PS4 will be even older and more people will own PS5s. There's just no incentive to worry about the PS4 from Sony's point of view.

u/zucduc May 03 '21

Dang I wish I could turn down individual people

3

u/Extra_Dope May 05 '21

I never use my PS4 for chat so I didn’t realize this wasn’t a thing!!! Omg how do you deal with bad mics? At least you can mute people right?

3

u/zucduc May 05 '21

Yeah muting people is all you can do

2

u/tanker3061 May 03 '21

Let's hope Sony treats everyone fairly for this

5

u/KungPaoChicken_ May 04 '21

It’d honestly surprise me if they excluded the PS4 as they recently removed the communities feature right? Would make sense that they removed it to streamline Discord implementation as that essentially does everything the communities feature did but better

7

u/poopnada May 03 '21

sony did this with ps2 and ps3...

13

u/TacoChowder May 03 '21

Well, the PS2 abs PS3 are long out of production. Porting discord to them would be a lot of work for nothing

12

u/Tom245332 May 03 '21

Not the point he was making. Sony tends to drop support for their legacy consoles eventually more so than Microsoft does.

-5

u/TacoChowder May 03 '21

We don't, technically, know the exact point they were making

5

u/poopnada May 03 '21

i was referencing that sony dropped online support for the ps2, when they could have easily supported it under psn that they made available for ps3. sony were producing ps2s up until like 2013 or something.

sony also dropped support for linux after people paid a lot of money to use it and developed games for it.

my point was, sony has a history of this.

1

u/huto May 04 '21

OTOH, didn't the 3 retain most of its online capabilities until recently?

2

u/[deleted] May 04 '21

I mean the PS5 is the new product. Of course it’s going to get new features

-2

u/HotTakes4HotCakes May 03 '21

I mean, it would probably require a significant deal of programing to integrate it in a meaningful way, and PS4 is no longer the primary focus, so yeah, I don't see it happening.

Is that really surprising? I can't think of any time a console, or an OS for that matter, has seen a significant feature update after its predecessor has been released. This is pretty expected.

7

u/Matt_37 May 03 '21

Yeah, because PS5s are affordable and in stock worldwide, no games are launched for the PS4 anymore and there isn't an userbase of tens of millions of people using the PS4.

That would be nothing more than a dick move.

82

u/xwulfd May 03 '21

oh wow

No wonder they removed the communities coz discord is coming

u/xwulfd May 03 '21

yeah discord really wanted to be independent

u/The_Master_Of_Dark May 03 '21

Quite a U-turn from nearly being bought by Microsoft to partnering with Sony.

39

u/Tekataha_ May 03 '21

I hope they don't pull a "It's PS5 Exclusive" on us. I really hope they don't. Don't isolate the 100 million PS4 users

8

u/MonsterHunter6353 May 03 '21

actually it's 114 million active monthly users along with the 90 million active xbox users but still. that's over 200 million active users that they'd be isolating and it'd be completely useless even if it was avaiullable for all playstation users as they can already talk to other PS users or PC users through the playstation party chat

68

u/I_Have_3_Legs May 03 '21

As an Xbox user I am both happy and mad. Happy console users get discord and mad Xbox couldn’t do the same. All my friends are on pc and they always complain about having to be in Xbox party chat to talk with me

58

u/xwulfd May 03 '21

MS wanted to get discord but discord said no

38

u/charlie_xavier May 03 '21

Yeah this is great news. I was extremely worried when I heard rumblings about MS acquiring Discord. MS doesn't have he beat record with social/chat apps.

13

u/xwulfd May 03 '21

what was the latest social chat that MS acquired? was it Skype or there was a newer one?

19

u/charlie_xavier May 03 '21

Skype, teams, lunch are the ones I've used that MS turned to less user friendly goop.

2

u/Torx_Rench May 04 '21

Teams is not less user friendly goop. It's just not game focused. It's actually pretty incredible and basically every company uses it now.

u/charlie_xavier May 04 '21

It's garbage

u/kittehsfureva May 03 '21

Mixer, their planned streaming service that they killed after not too long

-12

u/MonsterHunter6353 May 03 '21

they've literally aquired tons of things since then. minecraft is an example as that is doing better then ever

11

u/Gabians May 03 '21

what was the latest social chat that MS acquired?

7

u/flekkzo flekkzo May 03 '21

MS record in general is better than Tencent’s, so MS fully owning them would be an improvement.

8

u/pb7280 May 03 '21

You know it was Discord that reached out to MS first to ask their interest right...?

14

u/xwulfd May 03 '21

Yes but for partnership only but MS said we buy it so discord was like nope

1

u/Extra_Dope May 05 '21

Discord somewhat has a work around on Xbox already though. Quarrel app connects your discord account

6

u/SkrallTheRoamer May 03 '21

wait, i thought you had a discord app on xbox? id hope we all could use it.

8

u/I_Have_3_Legs May 03 '21

No. We can link our discord to Xbox account and it will sho a little icon but we have no discord app. It sucks

3

u/MonsterHunter6353 May 03 '21

we have quarrel which is an unofficial discord client but it causes a ton of lag and overall sucks

5

u/Casually_Selected May 03 '21

I thought Discord came to Xbox already. Am I wrong?

5

u/I_Have_3_Legs May 03 '21

It is not an app on Xbox. You can just link them and it will show a little discord icon on your Xbox profile. Discord will show the what you are doing on Xbox if they are linked too but you cannot use discord app on Xbox.

u/Seanspeed May 03 '21

Might well come to Xbox still.

2

u/Scarkaiser May 03 '21

It could still come to Xbox, unless it's some kind of exclusivity agreement (I did not see mention of one in the article)?

Sony is smart to jump on this, and this is coming from a guy who mostly plays Xbox.

u/I_Have_3_Legs May 03 '21

I hope

12

u/HeavyDT May 03 '21

Sony didn't buy Discord just announced a partnership, MS was trying to buy Discord but that fell through for whatever reason don't know if this had any effect on it but they could still do a partnership as well. MS already allows linking on outside accounts including discord and way ahead of Sony here so the path to integrating it deeper into xbox live would actually be simple.

-13

u/stashanz May 03 '21

Doubt it. Microsoft had their chance to acquire discord and it didn't pan out for whatever reason, and this was within the last few months. Seems like Discord moved on.

16

u/srbman 73 400 May 03 '21

Microsoft don't need to acquire Discord in order to have Discord integration on Xbox.

-16

u/stashanz May 03 '21

Sony wouldn't enter into a partnership with Discord if Discord was going to work with its direct competitor.

19

u/cuntpuncherexpress WoodWhistle May 03 '21

They did with Spotify, a service that is also on Xbox. Why would this be any different if the goal is cross-platform play? Xbox is one of those platforms. This move adds value to the Playstation multiplayer experience, it doesn’t have to do so at the cost of other players on Xbox. Discord is just a service, no different than Spotify, Netflix, etc. No reason it needs to be exclusive.

1

u/stashanz May 03 '21

Those are fair points. This partnership news coming after MS and Discord decided to not get into bed together, and MS saying it wants to focus on its own comm software just has me hard doubting. I hope I'm proven wrong though as that would be best for the consumer.

Sony had (has?) a partnership with Spotify, yet the app exists in Xbox

u/ShadowofTheNight2530 May 03 '21

If it was best for buissness like this is i could see it happening

2

u/idigsquirrels May 03 '21

Try the quarrel app on Xbox. It’s an unofficial discord client but it basically allows you to use a discord party (from your standard discord account) instead of an Xbox party for voice chat

2

u/dust-free2 May 04 '21

I imagine this was a rumor that went rouge.

This was the source of the original rumor (as far as I can tell):

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-03-23/microsoft-said-to-be-in-talks-to-buy-discord-for-more-than-10b

Their analyst was connecting dots to make the story more interesting.

Discord was looking for investors. They approached multiple companies including Microsoft. Some how that becomes Discord is looking to get bought out and Microsoft wants to do that because they bought zenimax. Their analysts got it wrong which happens and shows the power of rumors when there is little information and lots of speculation.

The reality is probably multiple companies were brought in and I bet Sony, Microsoft, and even Nintendo may have all agreed for a minority investment to become partners. Maybe only Sony did, we probably will see in the coming months with e3 approaching.

Now people could argue that Microsoft don't care because they have Xbox party chat on both PC and console, but they also release games on steam now. I definitely see Discord coming to Xbox and I think even Nintendo would join in because they don't have a great chat system right now.

My guess is that discord is likely doing this investment round as a final push before going for an IPO to help drive share value. Discord becomes worth way more of you can get partners like Sony and potentially have a better revenue stream from ps+ (Sony could give nitro to those on ps+ supported by a revenue share to discord).

1

u/Scarkaiser May 03 '21

Sounds like you and I are in the same boat.

24

u/Scarkaiser May 03 '21

I'm mostly an Xbox guy, but this is cool. I would love to be able to chat with friends on Discord while playing on Playstation. This is great, because I mostly play consoles and my friends play PC.

Hopefully, Microsoft can get something like this going on XB1, as well.

8

u/MonsterHunter6353 May 03 '21

it'd have to come to xbox or the swicth otherwise this would just be a worthless investment by sony and discord as playstation players can already just use the playstation party system to talk to other ps4/5 and pc players

4

u/ModsAreThoughtCops May 04 '21

Yeah, that’s a good point.

Why even invest in this if the end goal is to talk to all the same people you could already talk to?

3

u/Searse May 04 '21

PlayStation party system does not work between PC and PlayStation besides using the in-game voice chat which usually ends up poor quality.

3

u/Solar_Maniack May 04 '21

You can’t use the ps party to talk to pc users. So Im sure that what this will be used for. Also discord (IMO) is just a superior chat system to all other parties in terms of quality and usage. I’d definetly use this over ps parties even with other ps users

2

u/abashir7866 Enter PSN ID May 03 '21

If they do, that will be pog cuz most of my friends are either pc players or xbox players

u/Galnick May 03 '21

I wonder what this means for vulgar language and NSFW content since Sony tends to crack down on that stuff

-11

u/Bordanka May 03 '21

Hope it's going to g0 better than with Microsoft and they get rid of all gross stuff.

8

u/vandridine May 03 '21

I mean, so will Sony. Every discard I am apart of post things which will get you perma banned on the Sony platform. There is no way they allow unfiltered content on discord as it now on PC.

1

u/Just_Games04 May 10 '21

Yeah, that's gonna suck. I have tons of NSFW servers

4

u/Csub May 04 '21

I just hope we will have access to the full features here.

Including voice chat, streaming, written chat and access to NSFW channels and servers. We know how strict Sony is with these so I have my concerns. I wish they just let us be big boys and girls and access age restricted stuff, and games without censores if we say we are adults.

3

u/Just_Games04 May 10 '21

For real. I think I'm old enough to see the big boy words without daddy Sony covering my eyes

2

u/Csub May 10 '21

Yeah I'm all for having the option with limited, family and kid friendly profiles but regular ones should be treated as adults and thus have access to adult stuff and games, without censore.

u/_CARLOX_ May 03 '21

Such a 180º turn as a while ago they claimed sony wasn't interested.

u/captainfalconxiiii May 03 '21

Does that mean I can put my PSN as a connection on Discord, like with Xbox?

16

u/srbman 73 400 May 03 '21

It'll probably be a little more fleshed out than the current Xbox functionality.

6

u/MonsterHunter6353 May 03 '21

well the xbox functionality is non existant so yes

2

u/[deleted] May 04 '21

I hope Discord also partners with Xbox so it isn't just exclusive to Playstation. It'd be yet another step forward for cross-platform progress between consoles/PC.

u/Shrekt115 May 03 '21

Interesting, I wonder how it will work

4

u/ndeaaaaaaa 2 22 57 287 May 03 '21

This could be great, hopefully it's not an exclusivity deal and discord can do it with nintendo and xbox (does xbox already have it? Not sure)

u/Brief-Discussion538 May 03 '21

yes xbox has it

u/Sufinsil May 04 '21

Xbox Profiles can link to Discord, to show friends in Discord that you are online and playing an Xbox game.. You can't access your Discord groups on Xbox.

u/Eeyore_is_Homeless May 04 '21

I really hope they get their own administration and moderation team. The discord’s team is... creepy.

u/Sooperballz May 03 '21

I don’t know what Discord is and at this point, i’m too afraid to ask.

u/mindblower32 May 03 '21

Think Communities+Voice/Text chat with rooms

u/virindimaster May 03 '21

I have never used discord, can’t say I ever will do it’s just something else I’ll never use, I’m not really sure exactly what it is but people seem to be happy about it which I suppose is good.

u/AidThisFellowUser May 03 '21

I wonder if this has anything to do with Microsoft finishing the acquisition talks with Discord

Hope this isn't something Sony will make exclusive. It would be awesome if I could use Discord on all platforms. Hate having to use the Xbox party system on my PC.

Apparently discord recently rejected a HUGE offer from Microsoft. Wonder what Sony offered.

I created an account a while back to see what all the fuss was about. To be honest, I can't stand it... such a mess. It's like a nightmare of all the worst mid-late 90s chat rooms combined.

Personal opinion, of course. If it's your thing, great. I still have the account, but have used it for maybe 10 minutes in total.

I honestly thought I was the only one who felt this!

u/Paranoimia_UK May 03 '21

Just needs someone to start posting "a/s/l?" to every new member and we'll have regressed completely! :-)

u/spectreVII May 04 '21

Yeah to be honest I just use it with some friends when I play Final Fantasy XIV online, a few of us are on PS5 and a few are on PC.

I agree that it is a mess. I eventually ended up on a server for each online game I play and a few other communities. While they have the folders feature, what's beyond dumb design is that when you label the folders, you can't see the fucking name till you open the folder or move your mouse over it :|

So am I going to have to reactive a discord account I haven’t used since I stopped playing Game Of Thrones: Conquest?

u/CorruptLemon May 04 '21

Yeah probably no shit

I would much rather type than use voice chat in most games, I look forward to seeing how this works out

u/osami2002 May 04 '21

When the Microsoft failed with the purchase, I was hoping for the Sony to make a partnership with the Discord, and they did it. I AM FKING HAPPY.

u/silbyz May 04 '21

This would be so useful for when my friend wants to play apex on xbox but has to use his phone on speaker with discord. I was growing annoyed with not hearing my surroundings in game.

Why wasn't this phased in instead of Sony just going "fuck your communities, they are all done. Oh the replacement will not be available for almost a year."

I want to stream a ps4 game without delay to my friends on discord.

u/cookiethumper88 May 04 '21

It's about frickin time!

u/so_punk May 04 '21

Anymore it’s easier to start a private chat on PS and swap it over to game chat especially for trayarch servers absolutely garbage. And the war zone chat servers aren’t much better but at least they work 80% of the time.

u/jaredohseJ232 May 04 '21

Just to be clear, if this is a ps5 only thing, im not spending $500 so i can use an app i have on my phone and play my ps4 games with 10 more fps

u/snuppy420 May 05 '21

When does it come out?

Oh no. Oh no no no.... this will end badly for discord.

u/strand_of_hair May 03 '21

Why is everyone so stupid here? This uses the same words the Xbox/Discord partnership from a few years ago had, and what was that? Connecting your account to Xbox so you can display what you’re playing on Discord… that’s it.

This does not mean Discord will come to Playstation and no one should look at it that way.

Oh snap! This is mega huge! Now I can chat with the boys and play exclusives they don't worry a out!

u/Lupinthrope May 04 '21

Please come to Xbox and Switch too, end this console exclusive shit. I get first party games but have cross-platform play become the norm.

u/TruckFluster May 03 '21

I have since switched from PS4 to PC as of about a year ago, I was constantly yelling at PS and Sony on Twitter about adding discord because I had so many friends on PC that I wanted to talk to while gaming. I’m glad they made this move but oh my god will it be shit if they make it PS5 exclusive.

u/Vesania6 May 03 '21

Im fine with that but for fucks sake add a push to talk button behind the controller, right where your middle finger can reach. And make it by default.

u/Sufinsil May 04 '21

DualSense has a built in mute button. Does not default to mute unless you change it.

u/roflrad Legit_siK May 04 '21

Imagine Sony forces discords hand into making "Discord Plus" pay to use voice comms but chatting would be free.

Wonder how long it'll be before Epic Game Store is incorporated into Discord? Or Discord being available to use on PS5 🤔🤔
