Link Your PlayStation Account To Discord Starting Today
PlayStation has announced that PS owners can connect their accounts to Discord starting today. This will make it easier for players to share their activity and connect with other users using the social platform.
Per Discord’s blog post, PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5 owners will have the option to link their PSN account to Discord. Once the PSN account has been linked, they will have the option to display their activity when playing a game on their console. Players also have the ability to display their PSN username on Discord, making it easier for other users to find them and play along.
Discord says the feature will be “gradually rolling out” to U.S. Discord users first, with additional countries coming soon. The feature will be available on every platform that supports Discord such as Windows, iOS, and the web app.
This integration works in part with the ongoing partnership with Sony that Discord says will allow players to:
“Collectively create great shared experiences for your friends and communities.”
Here’s how Discord says to connect a PlayStation account:
“To connect your Discord account to your PlayStation Network account, open up Discord and head into User Settings > Connections on either desktop or web. On mobile, go to User Settings > Connections.” From there, you’ll enter your login information for your PlayStation account. Pretty easy. It also notes that you can toggle whether anyone can see your PlayStation status based on your preferences.
Last year PlayStation made a small investment in the social platform with the intention of helping form a partnership between the two companies. PlayStation has been in the headlines with big news this week as they announced yesterday that they were acquiring Bungie in a mega-deal worth $3.6B.
