Sony Responses To Fortnite Cross-Play Controversy With PS4 And Nintendo Switch


The whole situation with Sony and Fortnite has angered many fans with their reluctance to embrace cross-play with the Nintendo Switch and Xbox One. The fact that the company won’t allow PlayStation 4 owners of Fortnite who try out the game on their Nintendo Switch to log in with their account has made things worse. The company issued the following statement to the BBC and it doesn’t come across very well. Here’s what they say:
”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. With 79 million PS4s sold around the world and 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. We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms.”
