Sony blocks Fortnite cross-play on Switch

Sandy Mccarthy | 14 June, 2018, 21:45

It is also available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.

Not allowing me to sign-in to Fortnite Switch with my Epic account because it's linked to PS4 is tone deaf and points more to fear than market dominance. This isn't the fault of Nintendo or Epic (the Fortnite developer). "To play "Fortnite" on Switch, please create a new account".

The Switch version of Fortnite has all the same features as the version on PC and other consoles. However, the visuals have been stripped down to run smoother on the Switch's Tegra X1 chip. It looks more like the iPhone version of the game than the one you can play on consoles and computers. The bigger problem comes from the fact that once you visit and log in Sony's island you can't leave. You can link your account to every other platform-and Xbox Live director of programming Larry "Fritz Nelson" Hryb tweeted instructions for how to connect your Xbox Live account to Epic so you can access your items on Switch-but not to the PS4.

Not only did Sony did not acknowledge the hottest console out there, which happens to be the Switch right now, but it also did not provide any insight into what would make cross-play impossible between the PS4 and the Switch. It's a little vague, but it explains that Epic support can't do anything to help. Let us know your thoughts in the comments. But it's understandable, or at least not unusual for Sony. Minecraft and Paladins are a few more examples where Sony gates off its player base.

Drake dropped a new music video for his song "I'm Upset" late Wednesday, and it's jam-packed with nostalgia from his " Degrassi " days.

There is no such limitation when moving between the Xbox One and Switch. Many games don't bridge the gap between the PC and consoles, for example, due to their different input methods.

Fortnite is now on the Nintendo Switch as well, so players can start enjoying perks and more add-ons like these in the future. That's unfortunate for anyone who wanted to play Fortnite with their friends regardless of what console they own.

Complaints about the matter are already threatening to overshadow Sony's publicity efforts at the E3 video games show in Los Angeles.

"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".
