Sony to join in with Discord for enabling Chat features on PlayStation.

Sony has acquired a minority investment in the chat service, Discord, according to a recent announcement.

Prior to this announcement, talks were ongoing about a buyout. And two companies, Microsoft and Epic Games, were among the potential buyers, with Microsoft allegedly offering over $10 billion. However, the company halted talks to consider going public.

Sony purchased a stake in the online chat service to integrate it with PlayStation. As a result, users will be able to communicate more easily among themselves.

PlayStation users will be able to use this feature in the initial days of next year i.e 2022.

Sony’s decision – and Microsoft’s interest – is understandable. The service is heavily sought after, with over 140 million users reported in December 2020. Even more significant, however, is its popularity among gamers.
