Sony’s Responds To Lack Of Fortnite Cross-Play

The game company is facing backlash from PlayStation 4 players who are disappointed that they can't access their PlayStation 4 accounts for the wildly popular battle royale game Fortnite on the Nintendo Switch.

If you happen to be a Switch hardware owner or would be willing to purchase one of Nintendo's consoles purely to play Fortnite, then you can expect to be able to get the game with Switch compatibility immediately as of 10:00AM PST.

Canada parliament condemns Trump's attacks on Trudeau and tariffs
Trudeau had to unequivocally deny it. "We are being taken advantage of by virtually every one of those countries", he said. Trump and Kim shook hands and posed for photos before their almost 40-minute one-on-one conversation behind closed doors.


The BBC did manage to elicit some sort of response from a Sony spokeswoman: "We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience". That isn't the case here, though, because you can play Fortnite with people on PS4, PC, iOS, and Android devices.

This has caused problems this week for Fortnite fans because while most people don't bounce between PS4 and Xbox One, the hybrid home/handheld Switch system enables fundamentally different opportunities for play. It turns out that Fortnite accounts associated with the PS4 won't work on the Switch.

It's been roughly 16 months since the Nintendo Switch launched and there's still no sight of Netflix or Youtube, but that will change in "due time", according to Reggie Fils-Aime. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella notes on Twitter that 40 percent of Switch owners in the U.S. also own a PS4, meaning this isn't likely to be a small-scale problem among the tens of millions of Fortnite players. The Switch only just received Fortnite in their gaming catalog this week.

This may not have surprised many Xbox One owners, though, given that Sony doesn't allow Fortnite account sharing between the Xbox and PlayStation platforms as well.

With E3 2018 said and done, the major publishers have left gamers with all kinds content to look forward to in the near future. Sure, at least some of the fragments can be put together, but true "play anywhere" capability still doesn't exist.
