“I’d gladly pay whatever price I have to be able to stream directly from my PS5 to @X. Not everyone is streaming their games from a PC, so is there any chance that we can make a deal with gaming consoles to put @X in their stores as a streaming app?” the user tweeted.

In an unexpected turn, Elon Musk responded with a promising statement, stating, “Yup, we’re working on it.” This cryptic acknowledgment sparked anticipation among gamers, hinting at a potential collaboration between X and PlayStation 5.
However, some X users tempered expectations, noting that PlayStation had recently removed “X” with the ability to upload clips and screenshots. Skepticism arose regarding the feasibility of introducing X as a streaming app on gaming consoles, citing recent actions taken by PlayStation.
Despite reservations, there was an undercurrent of optimism in the X community, with one user acknowledging the endeavor’s potential. As the gaming world eagerly awaits further developments, Elon Musk’s brief but intriguing response has fueled speculation about a future where PS5 gamers could seamlessly stream their gameplay directly to X, opening new avenues for sharing and engaging with the gaming community.
