Sony is locking Fortnite accounts to PS4, and players are mad

Sony chiefs are under pressure to respond to complaints about "cross-play" restrictions imposed on Fortnite. But the company never mentioned the Switch in a comment provided to to BBC and others.

"Fortnite is absolutely massive and it's only going to get bigger - it's about to come to Android - so Sony has got to start thinking about its closed-garden ecosystem".

These downsides do not occur with Xbox One and then the Swtich versions. However, you can only play on the PS4 if you started there - Sony doesn't let the data out to other platforms.

You can nearly understand Sony wanting to block cross-platform access with the Xbox. Many games don't bridge the gap between the PC and consoles, for example, due to their different input methods. The bigger problem comes from the fact that once you visit and log in Sony's island you can't leave. Even if you entirely disconnect your Epic Account from your PSN account, you still can't associate it with another system. "The game mechanic of buying something that you're not sure what's inside is as old as baseball cards", he told Bloomberg. That's unfortunate for anyone who wanted to play Fortnite with their friends regardless of what console they own. "To play Fortnite on Switch, please create a new account".

Several months ago, we declared Yoshi to be one of the most exciting Nintendo Switch games of 2018, with the side-scrolling platformer set to be a return to form for the company while also giving the titular green dragon a wonderfully colorful new adventure.

The other major takeaway is that Sony might have too much power regarding accounts for outside services.

And, like always, Nintendo, Disney, and others have stolen the show by dropping release dates of games we have been itching for: Games like Kingdom Hearts 3, Fallout 76, and Super Smash Bros. are finally (!) available for preorder, with most being officially released in Fall 2018 and Winter 2019.

"With. 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". Some gamers dropped a lot of money on in-game content for the PlayStation version of the game, and it's all locked down on Sony's platform - they can't access it on the Switch or any other version of the game. Fortnite is already a huge hit with PS4 fans, offering a true free-to-play experience so gamers can jump in and play online.
