Sony Issues Statement Regarding Fortnite Cross-Platform Play on PS4

Fallout Shelter E3 2016- Quest

Are you surprised Netflix and YouTube still aren't available on Switch? However, many of those players found themselves locked out from playing because their Fortnite account was tied to their PlayStation 4. The online backlash to the account locking has only gotten worse since news got out and Sony, for their part, haven't exactly handled the situation well, releasing a statement that can only be described as tone-deaf. You can play solo or join up with a group of friends to take down the rest of the gamers.

Of course, there are other, more reasonable explanations for not supporting cross-platform play on certain devices.

Ultimate was revealed at E3 earlier this week, with a lengthy chunk of Nintendo's E3 Direct dedicated to it, a lot of what we learned was minor technical tweaks that matter more to competitive players than casual fans.

You can nearly understand Sony wanting to block cross-platform access with the Xbox. That means losing outfits, rewards, and in-game purchases, too.

Still, Sony hasn't said anything since it commented on the controversy to the BBC.

In response, Sony issued a statement to the BBC: "We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience". Fortnite is already a huge hit with PS4 fans, offering a true free-to-play experience so gamers can jump in and play online. It was understood that cross-play on the PS4 version of Fortnite would be limited to PC, Mac, iOS, and Android, but nothing was said about not being able to use your account on the Switch. Switch and Xbox One users could play with each other, as well as PC users, but not with PS4 players.

The biggest video game event of the year featured plenty of major game announcements throughout the week, from the world's top game makers including Nintendo, Sony, Microsoft, Bethesda, Square Enix, Ubisoft, and others. And we work hard with them to bring that to life.

The PlayStation 4 is the strongest selling console of this generation by a large margin, but one industry watcher said that this did not make it immune to attack. "And for us, at Nintendo, we believe that honoring the vision of a developer, honoring the fans and allowing the crossplay is really the right thing to do".

It's been a whopping rise to success for Epic Games and its Fortnite platform.
