Only in the US, but will be with us in the UK and everywhere else soon.
Sony’s previously announced partnership with Discord is finally here, and PlayStation users can start linking their PSN accounts with the chat platform from today.
Sony Interactive Entertainment president Jim Ryan announced Discord integration for PlayStation Network last May, saying the companies were aiming to bring
the Discord and PlayStation experiences closer together on console and mobile starting early next year.
At the time, it wasn’t entirely clear how far that integration might actually go, but now, in a new post on the Discord website, all has been revealed.
From today, PlayStation owners in the US will have the option to link to their PSN account from within Discord – via the ‘User Settings > Connections’ menu on desktop, mobile, or on the web – this will then display whichever PS4 or PS5 game they are currently playing in their profile for other Discord users to see.
Additionally, PlayStation users can opt to display their PSN IDs directly on their Discord profiles. Discord says it is
especially great for knowing if your friend is currently playing a game that supports cross-play on another platform.
Discord is rolling out the new feature “gradually” and only to users in the US at first. For all other PlayStationer’s elsewhere, PSN ID integration will be heading to you “soon”. Stay posted
