  • Sony Announces Blocking PS4 Cross-play with Nintendo Switch for Fortnite

Sony announces that they will not be supporting cross play for PS4 with Nintendo Switch. Also Fortnite on Nintendo Switch does not have Save The World mode.

Sony just made a lot of people hate them. In retrospect, a lot of people will now be preferring Nintendo Switch and Epic Games will be doing a lot of business. Why is it happening though?

Sony made an announcement. In this announcement, Sony said that they will be blocking Fortnite cross-play and progression for Nintendo Switch with PS4.

What does that really mean?

On the basis of PS4 cross-play with Nintendo Switch, any gamer who has an account for Epic Games for Fortnite on either PS4 or Nintendo Switch can play via the account on either gaming consoles.

That means that anyone who has an Epic Games account could play Fortnite on PS4 at home and take it on the go on Nintendo Switch.

So, by blocking the crossplay, Sony has limited playing Fortnite on the PS4 alone if you have an account registered through PS4. You cannot play with the same account on Nintendo Switch.

If you have to play Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, you cannot play the game on PS4 with the same account. Switch version of Fortnite is also giving this update when gamers are trying to play with the same account on Switch, “This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch.”

You now have to get separate Epic Games accounts for both the gaming consoles. You cannot use the skins, merchandise, lives and other features that you have bought or earned on one gaming console on the other gaming console.

Since the decision has come through Sony, everyone is blaming Sony for making this hard for the gamers. By blocking crossplay, they are forcing the gamers’ hands to make double the effort, double the finances and double the accounts.

People are taking out their anger on Resetera forums and Reddit. They are using a lot of colorful languages as well as a show of resentment over Sony’s decision.
