PlayStation owners can connect to Discord from today. This will make it easier for them to share their activities and connect with others using the social network.
Discord's blog article explains that PlayStation 4 owners and HTML5 owners will be able to link their PSN accounts with Discord. After the PSN account has been linked, players will be able to view their activity while playing on any of the consoles. Discord will allow players to show their PSN username, which makes it easier for others to find them and join the fun.
Discord claims that the feature will "gradually roll out" to U.S. users. The feature will be available first to Discord users, with more countries soon. Discord will support the feature on all platforms, including iOS, Windows, and the web app.
Discord claims that the integration is part of a continuing partnership with Sony. It will allow players to create "great shared experiences for their friends and communities." PlayStation made a minority stake in Discord last May to form a partnership.
This news comes only hours after PlayStation announced it was buying Destiny developer Bungie for $3.6 million. Bungie promised fans that they will continue to have full creative control over the Destiny universe and independent publishing. "
