As revealed in the latest PlayStation Blog post, Senior Vice President of PlayStation Worldwide Marketing Eric Lempel revealed their collaboration with Scott. "Through our mutual passion for gaming and creativity, we plan on collaborating with Travis and his Cactus Jack brand to produce innovative projects that we hope will delight our collective fans."

The PlayStation team says they chose Scott because he is "constantly surprising" and "incredibly innovative," which is something they are looking for when going into a new generation of gaming.

I actually don't know much about anything about this dude. I guess I'm told old to be hip these days. Your thoughts, SW? Does this collaboration excite you?

This is weird as heck. I was in front of gamestop a few weeks back and PS people were talking about thousands of dollars of Travis sneakers and scalping.

Now I see this PS ad with him and shoes. What is this?

Why would game makers need input from a horrible rapper? I just don't get it.

@Pedro: Not necessarily. It could easily make them some money as there are a lot of stupid young people that listen to his horrible music.

I just don't see what kind of input he would have in game development. I guess we could get a lot of games with horrible music now.

He's had a ps5 for a few months now. I was wondering how he got it.

I also had no idea who he was until I saw his name on the outside of McDonald's and my nephew told me.

The guy can reach a ton of younger gamers and can help amplify your brand. It's a good move.

I do not think anyone who does not listen to contemporary rap will know who is Travis Scott. As someone who detest current rap (I often see it as angry Black urban music with so much profanity), I do not know who he is.

I like Travis Scott as an artist, but I cannot stand his fanbase and the bandwagon that follows. I gotta say, Travis looks like the grown-up Marcus who advertise PSP lol.

All jest aside, Sony has made some questionable decisions here lately...Is Travis Scott really going to bring more people to PS5? Obviously, this partnership isn't aimed at Gamespot/System Wars, it's aimed at his fans. I don't really care, I'm not at the age where a Social Media influencer has any importance to me. He is famous though.

I think sony is playing it well, we know the usual reviewers get units, but sony is going outside that quadrant in search of even wider audience.

Dude has 34 million fallowers on Instagram, i see sony sending units to people with many fallowers could pay off hugely, remember gaming was popular in 1994, but sony expanded the market when they enter the console market, maybe they are looking for ways to expand it more.

Publicity is always good.

Sounds OK, let's see what they do. I do like the Bautista in Gears 5 as someone mentioned.

If sony can wrap up Justin Bieber and Travis Scott, they will be unstoppable force for Gen Z and its high quality choices of musicians..

Maybe they could sign on the old lady who lives a couple houses down from me and pretend it's a big deal.

Do you expect all Black men to have names like LeBron, Kobe, Shaq, etc.?

Dude do you ever laugh? do you know what humour is?

Yeah, I had no idea who this was and had never heard of him... I had to ask my wife and kids. They all knew about him. My wife said he is Kylie or Kendall Jenner or something like that baby daddy.. lmao... I was like.. yeah ok.

Also Mcdonalds partnering with him as well and making a meal with his branding or something like that.. I dunno...

I listened to part of a song she played me and it was absolute dog shit.
