Sony isn't budging on Fortnite cross-platform play

"With. more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we've built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles". In addition to confirming that Fortnite for the Switch has already been downloaded over 2 million time, Fils-Aime added, "We embrace working with a developer and enabling them to bring their vision to life and whether that's Fortnite, whether that's a number of the other games that have cross-platform play on our console, from a developer standpoint that's what we want". But, "Fortnite" fans who tried using accounts created via PS4 quickly discovered those accounts won't work on Switch.

These downsides do not occur with Xbox One and then the Swtich versions.

But the move leaves Fortnite players with the feeling that they are being punished because Sony views the success of the Switch as a threat to the PlayStation 4's dominance of the current generation of consoles.

Sony chiefs are under pressure to respond to complaints about "cross-play" restrictions imposed on Fortnite. Sony does not support cross-play support between the PS4 and the Switch, and that also means that you can't play Fortnite on the Switch with the account you've created on the PlayStation because that account is tied to your PSN account. "I was a tester on PC whos (sic) finished every season and spent hundreds of dollars on the game but nope no Switch play for me since I played once on a PS4", said one person on Reddit. If you've never played Fortnite, you really shouldn't start on the PS4.

Opposition Fury as Jeff Smith and Labour supports Brexit
Her mission is clear: to find a way to unite the warring Brexit factions in her party before they derail the government. Jenkin tweeted: "There is only agreement for discussions, not concessions". "There is no inconsistency here".

Sony has yet to confirm it is responsible for the constraint, but it issued the following statement to the BBC.

In E3 interviews, representatives for Sony's fellow console makers were relatively diplomatic in expressing their annoyance.

Nintendo of America President Reggie Fils-Aime chose to weigh in on the situation at E3, saying that his company has no problem with cross-play against competing console systems. While it would absolutely prefer that folks talk about how much they're looking forward to those games, the general public is instead talking about one thing and one thing only: Fortnite. "I look at that and I wish people could get to play together". "If people want to go buy someone else's console and play games there, great, as long as we're all leaning in to how do we make this business for everybody as vibrant as possible".
