Elon Musk is “looking into” X integration being removed from PS5 and Xbox Series X/S
Elon Musk, the CEO of X (formerly Twitter), has stated that he will "look into" Microsoft and Sony removing the ability to share player content directly to the platform.
Following Sony's announcement that PS4/5 players will no longer be able to directly share clips and screenshots to the social media platform, X user X News Daily stated that the change will make the site "less convenient for console players'' as it attempts to become a major player in the game livestreaming world. Musk responded quickly to the user, saying, "I will look into this."
Both the Xbox Series X/S and the PS5 previously allowed players to instantly share content to the platform via the capture tools. Players must now upload content to their console's respective app, download the image or video on their PC or mobile device, and then manually upload it to X.
Musk's decision to raise the cost of accessing X's API for larger corporations is thought to have caused both console manufacturers to drop support entirely, with the CEO's constant controversial changes possibly causing even more problems for the companies.
