Ok so while this thread isn’t about crossplay/crossprogression, one thing I can say definitively is that Sony will have a hard time selling a lot of these bundles with crossprogression being blocked on an account basis.

It’s absolutely tone deaf for Sony and Epic to push this right now. A few weeks ago though it would’ve been a great bundle push since kids are all about Fortnite right now
No they wont.

I don’t know why but I’m cracking up at “includes exclusive skin AND”
like oh shoot what could it be? What is it?!
“500 vbucks, dont spend it all in one place”

Nice move I guess, many will be tricked not knowing that the "gaming phenomenon" is free to play.
Can confirm. I work at a retailer, and constantly get asked about “which console to buy for my X year old.”

“Do you have any copies of that Fort thing? How much is it?”

Sony is gonna sell so many of these

Fortnite has reached Minecraft status of random people not even into games talking about it.
I work in the music industry. I went to a showcase festival last month (basically new artists playing to crowds that are 75% labels, managers and agents) and one of the hot new artists played a song about Fortnite. It's definitely crossed over!

User Warned: Ignoring Modpost - Do not discuss crossplay drama in this thread.
The "I hope all your friends have the same game system as you" bundle.
You mean I hope you are looking forward to playing EXACTLY LIKE YOU HAVE BEEN PLAYING SHOOTERS FOR YEARS WITH FELLOW PLAYSTATION AND PC PLAYERS.
Oh, and do you think the new Black Ops will be bringing in Nintendo players? NO BECAUSE THEY WILL NOT EVEN HAVE THE GAME. You will be playing with Xbox players and PC players just like Xbox players have been doing for years.
For fuck sake you people need to give it the up and just stop making yourselves sound like jackasses with your salty little tantrums.

Is it weird to expect alot of third party vendors to buy these, pilfer the code for skins and then resell the systems on ebay?

Accusing people of having a "salty little tantrum" while having a salty little tantrum. Classy.

Not having a tantrum at all, just trying to make things readable because it seems that many seem to have an issue with evading facts and reality and since I really should't change colors or go with the geocities flashing text codes caps is the only answer

Oh my god you're joking. You honestly think this is true?

How out of touch do you have to be to believe this?

If anything blocking crossplay will convince more people to pick this up, as most of their friends are already playing Fortnite on their PS4s.

Amen. Some people on this site don't even know what they're complaining about anymore.

Posting the truth isn't having a tantrum though.

The kiddos will be buzzing for this.

Should have had a Fortnite PS4 controller as well.

Yeesh at those couple first pages...

I know Sony is tripping with the cross play stuff but many the recent threads and posts are essentially...

Speaking of being tone deaf.

Save the World is early access of a free to play game. It will be free soon.

Fortnite is free to play. The BR mode is free now and the Save the World mode is in paid early access.
"soon" was supposed to be early this year. Still no ETA in sight so until then it's still a 40 dollar game.

If this comes to the states and sticks around till November I wouldn't be surprised if it's the best selling ps4 bundle even above the Spider-Man bundle.

Which has nothing to do with this thread. Funny how Hex got warned and the poster he was replying to got nothing.
The majority of this thread is still about crossplay dispite the mod warning on the first page. Honestly there's not much else to talk about regarding this Sony and Fortnite.

When I was a kid I would play a hell of these F2P games. Parents don't buy everything that is available all the time, they normally require good grades/behavior to gift you a new game. That is why these games would be really nice, and that is why I think this kind of bundle can do a very good job selling Ps4's. Everyone everywhere talks about fortnite, same thing with PUBG last year. So basically, I can't see how this is a bad time,well, just if you think that only exist players with multiple consoles.

I'm sure people know its free but you still need a console/phone to play it on.
Even if they do it can still unsettle their thought. They could've gone to buy another console/PS4 SKU but since this one has the Fortnite label on it, they'll go for it 100%.
