    In a blog post shared today, Jim Ryan, president and CEO of Sony Interactive Entertainment, announced a new partnership between PlayStation and Discord. The aim of the partnership, which is to begin early next year, is said to "bring the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile". These experiences will enable "friends, groups, and communities to hang out, have fun, and communicate more easily while playing games together".

    Details are vague regarding what exactly will emerge out of this partnership but the post reads that the teams are "hard at work connecting Discord with your social and gaming experience on PlayStation Network".

    Additionally, Jim Ryan mentions in the announcement that "Sony Interactive Entertainment has made a minority investment as part of Discord’s Series H round". This comes after a potential acquisition of Discord by Microsoft reportedly fell through two weeks ago.

    So that's why they ended up rejecting Microsoft's proposal.

    So... this means that Discord will be closed down in five years or so?

    Wasn't Sony very supportive of Crash Bandicoot for the PS1?



    Edit: Yeah it says "Sony" in the intro.

    Wonderful, two prolific censors forming a partnership. Makes me wonder what sort of unpleasant policies they might be able to come up with when they put their heads together.
