The thing I don't understand about why Sony is doing this is because they already had cross play with final fantasy 11 back on the ps2, so why be taken steps backwards now

According to an article just released by IGN A former Sony executive is quoted as saying it’s all about the money... I’ll post on this soon :)

Even if you don’t like fortnite we should argue to get cross play on all games
Kalan Darkclaw (3 months ago)
Why are people so surprised about a fornite profile cant be moved to a switch ? To me it's common sense that if Sony isn't doing cross play why would you think that profile on you psn would transfer to any other platform ? That to me is like moving to Florida and being surprised there are hurricanes.

I've already stated this in our community Discord, but if Sony does not get their act together on this soon I'll be forced to add them to my boycott list. I have 14 and WoW to keep myself busy with, along with my Switch. Just because you are top dog does not mean you should turn your back on your consumers. That is what EA does and we all know how everyone feels about EA. I love Sony and have been with them for years, but if they keep running their business as such I will not hesitate going with Microsoft for my next Gen choice!
Zoeila (3 months ago)
i don't give a shit about crossplay. i don't keep friends that own different console's. simply because typically the people that own x-box don't jive with me. i get that people are mad but be rational. what incentive does sony have to add crossplay so people can go away from playstation and play on another system. regardless of what happens ill never own an xbox because they dont have the type of games i like.
Paul Dougherty (3 months ago)
Did anybody file a class action suit against Sony yet? I've invested little time (and no money) into Fortnite (I've played on PC and PS4 and was wondering why nothing from PS4 was showing up on PC), so I'm not particularly upset about this, but I can understand why people are.
Work To Game (3 months ago)
It might come to that, but I hope it doesn't... I'd rather have Sony play nice with others. #crossplaynow :)

Yea they gonna add cross play with their biggest rival ms for one shitty game ? Fuck no sony dont budge
Work To Game (2 months ago)
I think it’s really up to Sony and it’s player base to decide (ultimately) and I know it’s not a big deal for some people, but for others it is a big deal. It all just depends on what is important to you. Personally I think cross play will help developers and their games in the long run. Especially small and Indy devs who can have a larger connected community over their game rather then three+ separate ones.
Danny Lopez (2 months ago)
Work To Game if they do then thats cool i honestly dont care what does piss me off is everyone crying about it like its a big deal when its not they dont need to add it for fortnite that game is a fad my 12 year old loves it lol i cant stand it
Work To Game (2 months ago)
And if they do?
Danny Lopez (3 months ago)
Who gives a shit about cross play u wanna play with sony players buy a ps4 simple
Work To Game (2 months ago)
A lot of PS4 players do, I'm one of them... it's not so simple as not everyone can afford all consoles to play all games. CrossPlay is good for developers and gamers, and shouldn't this be the choice of the developer rather then the platform holder? #crossplaynow :)
tical2399 (3 months ago)
Brian, as a follow up to my post yesterday, its not so much that some of us don't want cross play its that we are not willing to give up buying from sony (we like their games and services more than we like cross play) to move them in that direction. Its like the Monique issue from a few months back. If you don't know she's a black comedian who feld she got a low ball offer from netflix. She asked the black community (card carrying member here) to boycott netflix on her behalf. Shes asked us to give up a service we like to fight her battle. Your movement feels like that, Seems like you want general playstation players to boycott their console / service of choice to aid in your fight to get cross play. Not a fan of that.
Mad King (3 months ago)
Holy shit i didnt expect for it to happen this fast. If it was any other game it would have taken time but since its fortnite which i hate to admit is the most played game. Its happening very fast and aggressively. And with the ps5 on the horizon reportedly not having backwards compatibility for ps4. It will definitely hit sony hard. Sony has grown complacent at the top. They feel as if exclusives will keep carrying the ps and because of that they will crash and fall harder than any other console. That ofcourse is the worse case scenario where sony refuses crossplay. If it allows crossplay it will still hurt them but to a lesser degree. Sony makes profit from isolationism and if you take that and exclusives away from sony you dont have much to be an incentive to get a ps. Their hardware isnt anything special to look at unlike some pc and the one x and isnt portable like a switch. Their multiplayer servers arent special either compared to pc and xbox. So it leaves nothing that can help the ps stand by itself. Sony already puts to much weight on the ps to carry the company since they rely on it compared to other products they have. So if sony doubles down on isolationism and just throws more money on exclusives eventually people will see the ps as a burden. Not to say people wont have a ps but it will only be used for exclusives. Xbox already is the best place for multiplats and more bang for your buck, the switch offers a portable console with some of the best couch co-op features and pc dominates vr already. And all of those will have crossplay(along with mac, android, and ios) which just leaves sony by itself. Its a dam shame tbh for sony to be this petty and misguided to keep the gaming community from truly being united. But sony is way too deep into isolationism for them to change their minds now. Because if fortnite gets crossplay other games will want it to. Like final fantasy xix or whatever the mmo is called. In which sony single handedly ruined crossplay on it along with keeping nintendo and xbox from having it.

why would any sony fan support this, take it from someone that has all 3 consoles i wish i bought all my 3rd party games on xbox now and if sony thinks they can be consumer friendly in the begging to get sells, just to make us kiss there ass when there so far a head now they got another thing coming people will not forget this bull shit and you sony will be the next EA
Captain Ivan Danko (3 months ago)
This is Sony's "Deal with it" moment. Back when Xbox One was originally announced to have the always online component, that was their response and the damage to their brand was massive. Sony are being just as stubborn and it will come back to haunt them at some point.

daniel jenkin (3 months ago)
I really am thinking Sony is being fearful of the switches potential to tap into multiple markets and if Sony don't change then the switch will gain more popularity
cosmosofinfinity (3 months ago)
This is a game as high profile as Star Wars Battlefront 2, so hopefully we can stir up attention to a similar mainstream level as that game, so Sony will actually feel the pressure and maybe, just maybe, change their policy.
Kingcletis (3 months ago)
With Sony not enabling cross play just makes them look weak and greedy , I started with an original xbox and stayed with microsoft for years until these last 2-3 years when Microsoft had placed all the needless rules. So i hopped over to Playstation, I do enjoy my playstation but i bought a xbox s to play with my friends. Hopefully Sony will make this right and enable cross play. I don't play Fortnite much but i'm hoping this will open some doors for FFXIV to be available on the Xbox so i'm all for the cross play keep up the pressure fellow gamers!

I don't want cross play nor I think it makes sense tbh. But that's me.
Noctis Gaming (3 months ago)
I don't see it as anti consumer , since Sony consoles and sometimes Nintendo are my main choices for gaming I want Sony to do as good as it possibly can and I don't see how this helps in that at all , if people can play online together regardless of console of choice many people could skip buying a Sony system since they can team up with their friends in it regardless of their choice of system , I want PlayStation brand to be as successful as it can be so it keeps delivering exclusives and what not , you get my point?
Noctis Gaming (3 months ago)
G-Theorem Tell me how this makes sense from a business stand point? Cause I can perfectly see why they don't want to do it , but that's me.
Marty V (3 months ago)
I can stand by this much more. social media and sharing your oppinion is perfect. I just felt like boycotting is like bullying a bully. it doesn't make things better it's just turns it into a battle of who can hold their breath longer. and sony has a bigger wallet than I do ...
Azure Arcade (3 months ago)
Boycotting is easy. Been doing it for years. But that's because I'm not okay with being treated like crap by companies who think they reserve the right to restrict or extort me. To each their own. I enjoy having the control over companies through purchases and aim to utilize that if need be. It also seems Sony's stock did end up taking a hit from this one. So chin up and remember that you if you have a community behind you you can do big things. Even against big corps.
Work To Game (3 months ago)
That's why I gave two options, you can choose to not spend $$$ with Sony, or you can raise your voice. :) The point is to take action. :)
Azura Moonstar (3 months ago)
hpe they fix it, if ff11 in 2004 can be on ps2, 360 pc. Other games can do cross play.

Class FF-101 (3 months ago)
For the first time ever I'm actually considering getting an Xbox, at least an S. There are a few niche titles I've wanted that didn't really justify it but for third party, they are starting to seem a bit more appealing if Sony doesn't fix this moving forward. This isn't just about Fortnite but other games moving forward. Many forget that they've done this with Warframe and other multi plat games already, but they just didn't have the massive vocal fanbase that Fortnite does.
BoLoYu (2 months ago)
Class FF-101 Good luck paying for Live too when you don't need Plus to play Fortnite.
luis garcia (3 months ago)
Class FF-101 I agree with you. Although it’s too late for some of my games. Injustice basically I really hope it comes to the switch and if it ever did I would love my cross progression available but Sony shot that hope in the head.
Paul Dougherty (3 months ago)
I'll second the suggestion about the X. It's a substantial upgrade over the base console. I'd save up a little more and get one if you don't have an Xbox and are looking to pick one up.
Work To Game (3 months ago)
With pressure building, I hope Sony changes. Players shouldn't be forced to own all platforms if they don't want them. The S is nice, but the X is really awesome. If you don't have a PS4 Pro, and are looking for a real upgrade, that's what I recommend, if you can afford it.

Many Rocket League, Minecraft, Warframe and FFXIV allwant to let Crossplay happen but Sony being a big baby. And Xbox I know FFXIV is you guys . Get with the times. Let SquareEnix on your Console cause im waiting to BUY it for XBox even tho I have it on my PS4. But We need to keep this going strong. #CROSSPLAYNOW
Devon Morgenstern (2 months ago)
Work To Game Sony's first party line up sells their console, looking at sales for each of their first party games and the indie devs THEY support is what has proven that over and over they are pushing out the better games. Sony doesn't focus heavy on multi-player like Xbox and honestly doesn't need to with the games they have. Also the people complaining about not having their fortnite "account" on the switch is quite laughable as anyone who is any least bit knowledgeable about the way console accounts work knows it's not ever going to happen because they are "fortnite accounts" they are PlayStation network accounts used to play fortnite. So people can either become educated and learn before throwing fits or make themselves look entitled and little kids.
Work To Game (2 months ago)
Sony has done an amazing job supporting their first party, amen to that. But do you feel their first party lineup is strong enough to carry them on that alone? I look at Nintendo, sure Nintendo makes great games, but without third party support it’s a system that gathers dust while waiting for game releases. Would love to know your thoughts here. :) loving the discussing by the way :)
Danny Lopez (2 months ago)
Work To Game honestly im enjoying all the amazing games that sony is producing for me and most sony fans would agree i honestly could care less for this crap im glad sony is focoused on whats importand THE GAMES and not some fad and ppl thowing tantrums crossplay is absolutely not needed but like i said if it happens i really dont care
Work To Game (2 months ago)
I’m not a fan of Loot boxes and micro transactions. But there was no heads up, no warning, it just feel on players. This is a betrayal of trust and respect for the customer. Which makes Sony look like the Sony that launched the PS3 at $600 and told players to work more to afford it, rather then the Sony that launched the PS4 and told the world that they are gamer focused over microsoft.
Danny Lopez (2 months ago)
The baby here is you crying over your precious micro transaction save data account what makes you think you own any of the crap you buy in fortnite ? See ppl thats why lootboxes and microtransactions in games are bad

Happens on warframe for years but fortnite breaks the news xD...ok
cosmosofinfinity (3 months ago)
Warframe didn't explicitly hijack your account and make it unchangeable which device it can be played on. In other words, Warframe is a game that was never cross-platform multiplayer in the first place, and so that game didn't even have any fuckery like this.
Work To Game (3 months ago)
It's just a size thing, Fortnite is a household name, and over 2Million downloads on Switch in 24 hours is insane.
