  • Sony Trying to Do Damage Control on Blocking Fortnite Cross-play on Nintendo Switch

Sony is finally saying something after facing a lot of backlash from gamers for blocking cross-play on Nintendo Switch

Sony is facing a lot of backlash. Just days ago, they announced that they will not be supporting cross-play on Nintendo Switch with PS4. What that means is that any gamer who has a registered Epic Games account on PS4, they cannot play with that same account on Nintendo Switch.

Turns out, this is not only the case for Nintendo Switch, Sony is not supporting cross-play with Xbox as well. In the meanwhile, Nintendo Switch has launched Fortnite and they have recorded 2 million downloads since its launch. Not only that, they are also supporting cross-play with Xbox, Mac, and PC.

Gamers are furious. They have taken out their anger on gaming forums. They are even saying that Sony is hijacking their account. Sony has finally responded with a very detailed statement; ”We’re always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience. Fortnite is already a huge hit with PS4 fans, offering a true free-to-play experience so gamers can jump in and play online. With 79 million PS4s sold around the world and 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. We also offer Fortnite cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for Fortnite fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms.”

Well, they can start by reconsidering their stance on blocking cross-play.
