Fortnite on the Switch Lacks PS4 Cross-Play Because Sony Is Stubborn

Fortnite on the Switch Lacks PS4 Cross-Play Because Sony Is Stubborn

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.

We doubt this will appease furious Fortnite fans who are lambasting Sony over its unwillingness to partake in cross-play with other consoles. "Neither the "Fortnite" website nor Epic Customer Service are able to change this".

One of the main problems with that is that any in-game progress previously made in Fortnite will not be included on the Nintendo Switch. It's a complex, silly, and - most importantly - free game that's available on almost every platform: PC, Mac, iPhone/iPad, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4.

As I've said this past week this has gone far beyond a grudge or a pissing match between Xbox and PlayStation. Other consoles, however, is where it draws the line. The slightly disappointing news is that it doesn't appear that Fortnite for Switch will contain any Nintendo-specific content. 2DS and 3DS are for kids and families to get engaged for the first time potentially in video games, and Nintendo Switch is going to be that game where consumers want to play Smash Bros., Zelda and all of those big epic games.

Major military exercises ‘suspended indefinitely’ on Korean peninsula, says US official
If implemented, the halting of the joint military exercises would be one of the most controversial moves to come from the summit. Add North Korea as an interest to stay up to date on the latest North Korea news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

What you can do to make Sony pay attention to you is to stop playing Fortnite on your PS4, especially if you've got a second gaming computer available that can run the game, be it a smartphone, PC, or a different console.

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".

In E3 interviews, representatives for Sony's fellow console makers were relatively diplomatic in expressing their annoyance. Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé - who just yesterday argued that multi-platform games should start arriving faster on the Switch in the near future - responded to an interview by Bloomberg covering a range of important topics for Nintendo. Many posts on Reddit saw players getting angry about the so-called "cross-play" problem. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe. Sure, at least some of the fragments can be put together, but true "play anywhere" capability still doesn't exist.
