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
Work To Game (2 days ago)
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 :)

I waited for fortnite on NS but now I cant play it I really hope they fix this

I hope that Sony does right by gamers in the long run. This gives me the feeling that they are reverting back to their PS2 era days.

I'm really hoping PlayStation steps up and realizes and admits their mistake and fixes it. Thank you so much man for the info. Subbed and liked for sure

Welcome F1ex to the Workforce. (Something we say around here) I hope so too. I really hope Sony does what’s best for gamers.

I think all companies needing to sign an agreement for crossplay for another consoles.
Lavar Ball (6 days ago)
Even if you don’t like fortnite we should argue to get cross play on all games
Kalan Darkclaw (6 days 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 (6 days 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 (6 days 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 (6 days ago)
It might come to that, but I hope it doesn't... I'd rather have Sony play nice with others. #crossplaynow :)
Patrick Calnan (6 days ago)
I was thinking about switching to playstation, but this nonsense has gone to far. Im not going to spend money on a console that doesn't listen to their consumers.

Well Switch, PC, and Xbox all are playing nice together so far, so you have your pick :)

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.
KingAbadazad Gaming (5 days ago)
He gave us 2 choices its apparent you only paid attention to the boycott choice, as a ps4 user who does want crossplay i will still make purchases but we should definitely be raising our voices and being upset, sony is a joke #

They definitely are thinking backwards. Gunna hurt em in the long run 100% and if theyd be coolwith it then theyd retain sales and have the community on their side
Captain Ivan Danko (6 days 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.

G-Theorem (6 days ago)
There is no situation where crossplay is bad. If you want to only play with ps4 players you can still just do that. Having the option to is only beneficial.
meme man (6 days 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 (6 days 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.
Kevin Fields Jr (6 days 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!

Sooooo sony says that they can't protect their player base if they allowed cross-play with the other consoles but they allow it with ios and PC which is legit probably the most hostile platform with hackers and generally older players???!? *BIG THOMP*🤔🤔🤔 #crossplaynow
2:09 Yeah, like people are dying because of this... People are bitching about this whole cross play shit and payed little to no attention on Net Neutrality.

Noctis Gaming (6 days ago)
I don't want cross play nor I think it makes sense tbh. But that's me.
G-Theorem (6 days ago)
Noctis Gaming lets agree to disagree. Its black and white I cant wrap my mind around why anyone as a consumer wouldn’t want it.
Noctis Gaming (6 days 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?
G-Theorem (6 days ago)
Noctis Gaming Right now they are number 1. What made them number 1 this gen to begin with? Their consumer pro practices when microsoft was anti consumer. Yes they have great exclusives but before they even had good exclusives on the console their pro consumer practices were what put them ahead. A new generation is just on the horizon. When the competition is pro consumer and sony is the only one not doing it they will fall faster than they rose from the ashes in the ps3 gen. The same way battlefront 2 died a quick death Sony can as well. To sum it up it is in their best interest and their fans interest. It just takes enough people to say its not okay to ruin them. Greg miller a playstation fanatic has stated himself he will go to xbox for fortnite to avoid the nonsensical practices of sony. If you follow greg miller you will understand the weight of that.
Noctis Gaming (6 days 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.
G-Theorem (6 days ago)
Noctis Gaming You don’t have to use it. But it should be an option. There is literally no loss in having it as you can still only choose to play with people on the same platform. It makes perfect sense it allows a larger pool of players and allows players to play with anyone regardless of platform. If thats not clear idk what to tell you man. Imagine if apple said you can only interact with people on social media that have an apple device. That would be ridiculous. This is just as ridiculous. Don’t be blinded it only hurts gaming.
Marty V (6 days 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 days 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 (6 days 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 (6 days ago)
hpe they fix it, if ff11 in 2004 can be on ps2, 360 pc. Other games can do cross play.
Work To Game (6 days ago)
I hope so too Azura :)
Class FF-101 (6 days 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 (15 hours ago)
Class FF-101 Good luck paying for Live too when you don't need Plus to play Fortnite.
luis garcia (6 days 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 (6 days 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 (6 days 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.

Guess who's back, back again in the comments XD but for real tho sony is ganna lose this war if they keep it up like that #crossplaynow
Abdul Rahman Setarah (6 days ago)
Work To Game agreed!!

Nep Gamer I understand but I'm talking about the long run, sure that they have the best gear and great games and graphics and ect. But im saying if they keep doing it like this their ganna Lose their followers u know, what's the point of great gear if no one use's it
Nep Gamer (6 days ago)
Abdul Rahman Setarah they are so ahead of the game they could probably careless.
Work To Game (6 days ago)
If pressure keeps mounting, yes, I hope more news sources cover this and the market reacts to this.

Progress in how u chose a closed ecosystem and surprised it doesn't do what we all knew it doesn't do omg but keep pushing they will cave eventually best of luck
Heddgy Emtix (7 days ago)
Work To Game np crossplay doesn't mean much to me but I'm jaded cuz it always seem to infer with my updates the account thing Sony is doing is a much of bull tho didn't know till a few hours ago so keep it up #crossplaynow
Work To Game (7 days ago)
Thanks Heddgy! #crossplaynow for all! :)
Alvin Peterson (7 days ago)
It's good to see that others feel the same way #TrueCrossplay #CrossplayNow #TilAllAreOne! #BoycottPlaystation! Cause what they doing is BS. 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 (6 days ago)
War frame requires gold to interact with other players iirc which on PlayStation it's a free game so we aren't required plus to play with others, the same goes for ffxiv we don't pay Sony to play the game but Microsoft wants to make their player base pay gold to play ffxiv which along with them demanding their own private servers turned off square enix
Mad King (6 days ago)
Alvin Peterson well yea ffxiv is already a subscription based game if i remember. Hell elder scrolls online scraped their subscription for console because of it. It would make more sense to allow play from gold then have players pay twice for xbox live and the game. Cause nearly everyone on xbox already has gold so making it so you have to pay a subscription is a real turnoff tbh. Especially in my case since i already pay monthly on xbox and ps along with having netflix and hulu. Plus other monthly shit i have to pay for my phone or dish. It would be tough on players to be told that they have to add another monthly sub to play a single game.
Alvin Peterson (6 days ago)
@Mad King from what I remember researching. SquareEnix wants it on Xbox. But Microsoft wants to make it where you need to pay for gold to be able to play it and SqaureEnix doesn't want to do that to their Fanbase. Make us pay double.
Mad King (6 days ago)
Alvin Peterson xiv was because of sony nintendo and xbox were in talks with the devs to bring it to those consoles with the announcement of crossplay but since sony refused the devs had to say no too. Although they are still in talks to bring it over to nintendo and xbox but with sony not on board its going to be hard. Especially since the devs for xiv will only agree to bring it to xbox and nintendo if everybody agrees on making it cross platform. Which both xbox and nintendo agreed but since sony said no they are forced to post pone it.

ItaChu 787 wow so fortnite players complain or crying again this happens on most games on Playstation or Xbox so just because they have a lot of players that played fortnite they crying but they have other games they know that they can't change the account to Xbox or PlayStation this is a dead issue think about it there's a bunch of you got over $400 on your fortnite account on PS4 you could have use that and got another system you chose to spend that money #dealwithit
Vahlon- 9 arts dragon (7 days ago)
ItaChu 787 Theyve done it in most if not all deals with companies that have an external account system basically locking you into playstation cause you womt want to start over
Lunar Templar (7 days ago)
ItaChu 787 epic has no say in this, for some reason..... Sony is the one hijacking accounts, and preventing people from transferring platforms.
Vahlon- 9 arts dragon (7 days ago)
Happens on warframe for years but fortnite breaks the news xD...ok
cosmosofinfinity (6 days 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 (7 days ago)
It's just a size thing, Fortnite is a household name, and over 2Million downloads on Switch in 24 hours is insane.
