I'm a big Sony fan, but this is some bullshit. They really need to reverse their crossplay policy
For shame Sony. I hope more devs come forward to push for crossplay (as they benefit as well from larger combined player pools) without the fear of being punished by Sony as their platform distributor.
I'm fine with them reversing this policy for everything except PC, had too many bad experiences with cheaters on that platform, Switch and Xbox would be fine though.
Lol. 5 minutes after I made a new account and bought the battle pass.
Seems like Stw isn't even an option on switch so I'm good.
stated explicitly that the PS4 Pro was designed and released to compete against PC, to keep players from migrating away from Sony's ecosystem as time went on and the OG PS4 showed its age.
Well damn... I've hated Fortnite since I tried it on PS4 but this 50 vs 50 mode is the shit! Absolutely rinsed my battery tonight, probably the first time I've played from 100 down to 10 percent. Works pretty well in handheld mode too!
We sure because mine wouldn't link until I deactivated Sony and now it works fine.
As I said before, I think if all platforms end up with the same numbers of online users, then there would be no more obstacles for Sony because their own playerbase would benefit and the companies would all share network load and costs anyway.
Fo da playas.
Multiple people on reddit saying it doesn't work.
I also tried the method mentioned above and it still won't allow me to play using my account on Switch.
I came for this
How it allowed them in the first place is beyond me.
Ah, the miracle of meme birth.
I'm sure Sony will fix this after this backlash. This is unacceptable.
C'mon Sony, release the beast.
However, if there is no network strain involved then that would change the situation..
Btw I take offence with "fanboyism", I wrote all gamers are created equal and it doesn't matter which games you prefer. A fanboy would say that game X is the best and people who buy system Y are stupid and whatnot.
Console playerbases are a direct result of the console companies their actions. Again, players should not bear that burden.
Also you should not feel sorry for your favorite company if they 'lose'; unless you have stock or something. Wheras a fanboy will cry if his favorite system loses NPD or if an exclusive title does not have a high enough metacritic.
Haven't really seen many Sony exec interviews during E3 this week. Maybe they're dodging them all because they don't want to answer the crossplay question again.
the developers of Rocket League stated plainly that they could have cross-platform play with Xbox and PS4 running with a flip of a switch (their words), except that Sony is preventing them from doing so. A political barrier is what they called it. Connecting an Xbox Live player and a PSN player is as simple as putting them on the same Rocket League server, on their end.
The Fortnite Celebrity Pro-Am is starting any time now
Wow, I'm glad Epic finally allows you to Unlink your accounts manually without jumping through hoops. Should've had this feature a looong time ago.
Next question though... how do you Log out of an account on Switch Fortnite.
