Sony Responds To Fortnite Backlash Regarding Cross-Play Restrictions On PS4

To say fans were excited that Fortnite for the Switch launched during E3 would be an understatement. Not allowing me to sign-in to FortniteSwitch with my Epic account because it's linked to PS4 is tone deaf and points more to fear than market dominance. In fact, you can't even log in with a PS4 account. This means that a Fortnite account, once logged-in on a PlayStation 4 is then forever tied to that platform. One of the popular reveals came courtesy of Nintendo, who after months of rumors and speculation announced that not only would popular battle-royale title Fortnitebe coming to the Switch, but that it would be available that day.

More information on the new statement from Sony can be found on the BBC'sofficial website. Is it worth starting up a new account?
Players were rightfully furious about the restriction. Only time will tell if they will fix the locked accounts. 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.
Naturally, this only inflamed the situation as by omission creates the impression that Sony views Nintendo and Microsoft platforms as competitors first and foremost.
Sony finally broke its silence on the matter today with a statement provided to the BBC.

Now, Sony is facing a great deal of pressure from fans and even rival companies to provide cross-play for games like "Fortnite" - that is, the ability for PlayStation 4 gamers to play with people on other platforms.
Sony is taking a lot of criticism at the moment with regards to cross-play. "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".
"In fairness, there are three different things going on, Fils-Aime said". If you've never played Fortnite, you really shouldn't start on the PS4. It looks more like the iPhone version of the game than the one you can play on consoles and computers.
