Why didn’t anyone warn us NOT to play Fortnite on PS4 [Cross-Play Now]

242 ratings | 10394 views
Why didn’t anyone warn us not to play Fortnite on PS4? With the Launch of Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, it's apparent that playing this game at any point on the PlayStation was a bad choice. Not only are you locked out of your progress, but you can't unlink your account. And players are pissed. Here is an open letter to PlayStation saying it's time for Cross-Play it's time to break down the walls that keep some communities apart and bring Cross-Play to all systems and let gamers play where they want, with who they want. The Nintendo Switch version is a great game and as long as you are not a PlayStation player, you're ready to go, but be careful not to go near the playstation version less you run into issues and have to start over on a different platform. The simple fact is, Fortnite needs crossplay, and PlayStation players should be able to play with Xbox and Nintendo, and pc, and mobile if they choose to do so... Let's break down this artificial walls and with a loud voice tell Sony that enough is enough. But until then, don't play Fortnite on PlayStation. You know this when you are getting the account already linked error message when trying to join your accounts together. Update on Sony that could help them change their outlook. - https://youtu.be/YSNJJNAuNA0 #crossplaynow #truecrossplay --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Comment Policy: https://youtu.be/CXaJ7OExOQo --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Like what we do here, and what to see more of it?

Sony is ahead when compare to either Xbox and Nintendo right now. There's no reason for them to corporate with other hardware companies. You just said it, Microsoft did the same thing before, and the only reason they are pushing for crossplay, it becomes more financially sound for them. If I have more players playing on servers that are from PS4 on my MS server, that's more money coming to me. Its all about control and $$$. And Sony has it with the PS4.

You aren't alone in that mindset... guess we will have to wait and see what Sony decides to do going forward.
Vistathon (4 months ago)
It seems there are two issues here - 1. Not having the ability to play against other consoles etc. 2. Not being allowed access to your Epic account to continue gaining XP on consoles outside a PlayStation. It's number 2 that needs addressing foremost. I can live without cross play for the moment. But I want to level up - on the move with the switch or occasionally log in with my Xbox to my Epic account. Imagine not being able to look at YouTube or Facebook on any device if you've already logged in with a PlayStation! This is the bit that people need to understand because I think some people are clearly missing the point 🤨 Nice vid btw 👍👍

cosmosofinfinity (5 months ago)
It's just so confusing. They had to tweet out the two different lists of cross-play environments and it still didn't make much sense. Sony should get rid of this policy just for simplicity's sake. But I guess they want the inferior version of the game.

This is what I’ve always wanted on systems being able to transfer data of games. And with the switch you can have the best graphics on Xbox X and then continue on Switch on the go with the same data. Too bad I got a PS4.
jose garcia (5 months ago)
Work To Game I wouldn’t mind buying the same game twice because I have to move around a lot. I move in summer and then again in holidays for a couple of weeks, When I’m home I can enjoy the good graphics and stuff of the PS4 but my switch allows me to play not only on the whole way over but at the house too on the tv when I get there and have a whole console setup easily. I used to take a portable computer bag with my xbox360 in it, and another for the games and cables then the Wii U came out and I took that one instead cause I could play on the car with the power adapter. Maybe I took it too far with the Wii U cause I had it set up on the back seat it was worth it though cause the ride felt so much shorter. From NC to California. Cross saves is all I’m missing.

Mad King (5 months ago)
Wont happen sony makes a profit from gamers being divided. As soon as crossplay between all consoles happens most people wont care for the ps4 version of it. With the one x and pc being the best places to play and switch allows you to play fortnite anywhere. So it leaves sony to be the least desireable since it doesnt offer anything better console wise compared to pc, xbox and switch. Hell that mmo final fantasy was slated to have crossplay and hit xbox and switch until sony said they didnt want crossplay so the devs were forced to scrap that idea. You also have to remember that sony isnt a very profitable company compared to nintendo and microsoft. They rely on the ps to keep themselves functioning. Which is why they have invested in various first party developers. And if they lose that exclusivity aspect of ps no doubt they will feel the consequences of it. It would be nice for gamers to finally be united and just scrap the console war altogether. But sony has profited from it by a big margin which puts them too deep into being isolated that cross play could be the beginning of the end for sony. And tbh its bound to happen could not be now or tmrw but it well. And they will drag their players base with them. Unless sony takes measures to show its playerbase that they arent being used like cattle in a pen. Their playerbase will soon turn on sony for dragging the playerbase with sony into isolation.
Mad King (5 months ago)
Work To Game yep xbox has had its fair share of problems but they have listened to the playerbase every step of they way. With a recent example of them acquiring first party studios to show their commitment to making ps level exclusives on xbox. Along with them adding backwards compatibility, xbox play anywhere, and even gamepass for people either want to try out a game before spending more than $10 or for people who want more bang for their buck. All in all the gaming industry is moving foward to be united and unless sony joins in they will decay by themselves.
Work To Game (5 months ago)
Thanks for sharing this and great thoughts. Personally I think if Sony keeps this policy up it will hurt them going forward. Right now people are upset if they unify and remember this could hurt PS5 in a few years. Remember the whole Xbox can’t trade games... well this is this but for Sony now....

Work To Game Yeah, I guess at some point in time it will come out. Although will it necessarily be beneficial to have fortnite crossplay after all that time. I personally think it is more likely for a Sony PlayStation patch (so as an entirety) to allow it.
William Moore (5 months ago)
Two things I'm seeing in the comments that need to be addressed. 1) officially Crossplay hasn't been a thing between consoles ever. 2) Linking accounts is not Crossplay. Linking your PC and console account allows the console exclusive gear to show up on PC and may be part of the issue with linking multiple consoles to one account. The linked account problem may be an issue within Epic games and not with the consoles, possibly do to the way they wrote their code to let them prevent the two consoles from ever seeing each other. It could also be a mandate from both sides, but everyone blames Sony because MS was ready to allow crossplay. However, it is important to remember that items purchased on their platform would inevitably be money in the pocket of either Sony, MS, or Nintendo and they may not want to allow linking the accounts to other consoles because they could lose money by letting you buy from whatever you happen to be on when a skin drops. I'm all for crossplay, don't get me wrong, but this may be much more delicate of an issue than anyone realizes. Crossplay has so far just been Sony trying to freeze MS out of the added playerbase. And while that isn't extremely gamer friendly, it's probably good business. However, now that the switch has gotten in on this game Sony may need to reconsider (for this game). But if the Switch and Xbone can't crossplay, maybe Nintendo is stonewalling too. We have seen with PC that they can selectively choose who can crossplay with who, so if the switch can't play with Xbone, there is something more to it. If the issue with the switch is just that you can't link your account to another console's Epic account, that isn't new and may not be as simple a solution as we would like. Maybe Epic can work out a way to separate their code in a way that removes progress carrying over for unlocks, but that would still mean you need to buy everything 2,3, or even 4 times to get it on all the systems. There is a point of money to be made here, and I doubt any of the three are willing to just let one of the other three get a dollar that could be theirs. And the reason PC can get away with the all access pass? That's because so many PC gamers would rather play on their PC, better draw distance, and there is more than enough of us to not even notice if the consoles weren't there. But let us play with our friends/family who don't have a good PC and you get access to a massive playerbase that can supplement the number of console players if there is a time of day not many people are on. I don't have either an Xbox or a Switch so I don't know all the details. But this feels like a money play is at work. And unless something changes to make worth it to give in on cross linked, I don't see it happening. This is a free to play game, so micro transactions are the only way the Console maker see any money. And right now, the only way a PS4 player could "vote with their wallet" is to buy everything on their PC instead of through the PSN. Which either means putting Fortnite on a PC just to make your purchases, or going without buying anything until Sony gives in. Both ideas I don't see as having a very good chance. TL;DR Profit complicates things. Push for Crossplay! But cross linked may never happen.
Pastahnak (5 months ago)
Makes sense that the "losing" consoles want crossplay, because they gain from it. Sony doesn't gain anything. Also don't really see the point in playing a game like fortnite on multiple consoles when all you are rewarded is cosmetic stuff. Sony has also shown that they are more than willing to do cross platform play when it's not with direct competition with ff14
Work To Game (5 months ago)
This is way more then some fake console wars. It’s about what gamers want, and what’s best for gamers, not multi-billion dollar companies :)
Gillian Gybels (5 months ago)
With the rights they have SONY made it unable for PlayStation Network to operate with Nintendo Switch. Which makes it impossible to link an Epic Games account to your Nintendo Switch which has already been connected with PlayStation Network. It's their right to do that, but we weren't announced that if we connect or PlayStation Network account with our Epic Games account we will no more be able to connect our Epic Games account with Nintendo Switch. Because they didn't announced that, i think we have the right to be temporary able to disconnected our PlayStation Network account and link our Nintendo Switch accoun to our Epic Games account. Like that PlayStation Network can keep running their own business and things get right again. After all SONY being isolated is just bs.

It sucks for y’all, but honestly fortnite has been a bad franchise for the gaming community since the success due to micro transactions happened. This concept is looking to span into non f2p titles like bf v, now that publishers like ea and activision are not going to be able to milk the lootbox train like they have in the past. Boycott bfv, boycott cod, boycott fortnite, boycott micro transactions.

William Moore (5 months ago)
I play with PS4 players all the time on. You don't need to do anything special other than add them to your epic friends list. If you were to link your account to a PSN account you wouldn't be able to use that account to play on another console platform, but could still play with other console platforms as long as you are playing on PC. I hope that helped.

Before I say anything OF COURSE play what you like is the correct mentality AT ALL TIMES. An because you like X and I like Y does not make me a "real" gamer or any of that nonsense. Fortnight an the battle royal game is LAZY gaming. It is no story, no ploy, no immersion, and not a lot of assets. Just create a world an let players screw it up and kill each other. THAT more even then the blind fan base is my issue with battle royal gaming, But as you said with Moba's they have their own fans and I am happy that both have their outlets :). Perfectly said
Work To Game (5 months ago)
This question opens up the greater question of why play games at all and beyond. Fortnite is a lot of fun if that’s your cup of tea, however it’s not for everyone. I don’t enjoy MOBAs at all, but it’s good they exist.

Joshua Jordan (5 months ago)
Normally I'm Pro exclusivity because it's important for business without exclusivity there's absolutely no reason to buy any specific platform and they can't build a business on that. However there just isn't enough upside business wise to lock up the game. Sony just needs to figure it out.
I hate Sony for this I wanted to play many other games with my Xbox freinds..... but I can’t now I can’t transfer my purchases so aggravating what’s Sony worried about if anything this is making me want to get an Xbox Because they treat the consumers right and not like crap with Sony’s “Crossplay” issues. Many people are done Sony fix it or many people will go to Xbox.

Xbox is gearing up to win the next generation battle. That’s what they said at this years E3. #crossplaynow will be a thorn in the side of PlayStation unless Sony decides to do something. PS4 players are pissed and rightfully so.
Mad King (5 months ago)
EmeraldKnightEightan//EME hell if it was 2016 xbox it wouldnt be any different but since its 2018 they have shown with proof that they are listening to the playerbase about exclusives. By buying 5 studios along with more yet to be announced. It really gives the xbox playerbase a smile especially when the xbox already values the consumer so much as to add backwards compatibility to keep them from feeling like they wasted their money on older games which sony dislikes. They have also been at the forefront for crossplay and gamer unision. It really shows they do value the player. Not saying sony doesn't but more and more i see sony all i see is them using the playerbase as cash cows. Which is why they focus alot of money on exclusives while also not allowing backwards compatibility to their consoles.

The switch is my main console and it's a pain in the ass to unplug it and play ps4 just for one game. I share the ps4 with my brother so I can't be on it all the time either. My switch however is mine so if I could login I would have no problem. Sony please fix this

I think the idea of consuls to play with a controller not a mouse and keyboard

Xbox does need to support KB&M for sure but since players opt into cross play then I don’t see the issue.

Why sony there are people with accounts worth milion dollars with battle passes that have Omega,The Reaper,and more and they can't play on the switch if they created there account on PlayStation just why please just let us gamers work together this message comes from me and other disappointed PlayStation player's with a switch and now we have to be defualt everything just why sony why

DizDoesGames (5 months ago)
As much as I hate it, this is a good example of why Sony doesn't want to allow it. You just admitted that you have to play on PS4 now. Theyve found a way to keep you consistently logging on because you can't log on anywhere else. Kind of a bully tactic rather than actually making the consumer want to choose them.

I agree. I have to open my ps4 just for that game now and I share a ps4 with my brother so I can't be on it all the time. I mainly use the switch so it's annoying to get on ps4. It's also better with the switch because it's portable but no touch screen like phone.

The really stupid thing is I’m a pc fortnite player and I linked it to PS4 once. Now I can’t play on my switch and even if I unlink I still can’t play. Like guys we need to stand and epic needs to stand with us. It’s a free game and we shouldn’t be limited because of one fussy cooperation

It's like if ps4 banned our YouTube accounts for watching YouTube on Xbox 1. Fortnite is big enough to persuade Sony. If fortnite is taken off ps4 let's see how fast Sony runs back to the table when they see their bestselling game is down.

I have a battlepass on my ps4, I also have a switch, I didn't expect that fortnite will come to switch. I told my sister, let's play tomorrow! I was super excited to play with my sister, When I opened the ps4 and the switch to play fortnite, when I logged in my epic games account in the ps4 it says something, (I forgot) tgen I said, I'll just do a new account, after sometime, i told my sister to add me on epic friends then, I received a friend request from my sister when i accepted it, i can't see her in my epic friends, and I tought it must be a bug or something, when we searched it up in google it says, sony is not allowing crossplay with the Nintendo switch, so I'm really sad because we've been waiting in 5 months for us to play fortnite together, my pc is so laggy it can't even run a game, so if you've seen this comment sony, There are millions of people who are playing in xbox, nintendo switch and more, so if you allow crossplay with switch and xbox, Everyone will be happy, It's even worse when you don't allow cross play, look at xbox, it's allowing nintendo switch to crossplay, nothing will happen if you allow crossplay, so please sony i beg you, to allow crossplay with switch and xbox, I beg you

ravenboilinux (5 months ago)
We need to put pressure on Sony from both side(gamers and game devs). I do hope the epic games and fortnite is strong enough to make Sony crack against their policy of no cross play with another console. I know that most studios are just glad and bow down to Sony Corp for just let them to get their little game on the Sony’s console(just getting on any console will make your game sell on avg about 30k units), but someone with the pocket books(metaphorically) need to fight at the negotiation table to get game devs the ability to see their game play enjoyed by everyone on all platforms.

Right now, if you have a PS4 account and try to play on Switch they are completely separate, but if you didn't tie your account to PS4, then you're good to go and your progress comes with you. It's really a jerk move by Sony to do this to their player base.

Yes but Sony doesnt own the servers for FFXIV not do you need to be subbed to PSN to play FFXIV its independent and exclusive the PS4. This is not new info. It's about infrastructure and assets pretty much SE provides all their own hardware and has a exclusive deal with Sony. That... is why

Sony has nothing to gain from it, simple as that on the business end. They’re winning this generation and now Xbox wants to reach out for cross play lol.
Work To Game (4 months ago)
You could be very right Sora. I don’t agree as I think that the more games that support cross play will help force Sony’s hang at some point as it seems that it will be the future for 3rd party games. And who knows what else. I’m wondering if Sony isn’t thinking the same way as you on this, waiting to see if the mood shifts or loses focus. Since they are the last hold outs, it’s something that I see them changing in the future. The only thing I wonder is how much damage will this due to the PlayStation brand.
Soracool123 (4 months ago)
Cristian Cabrera You'll see what the players really want, when spiderman, red dead come out. This will be completely ignored when the games start coming out and when it's another dry point some other random argument that has been done by another company before will sprout, happens all the time. While cross-play is important, it's just not the most important thing. Games are and if I'm getting quality games to play like I will be later this year and early next year. Then honestly I can care less about cross play and I'm sure alot of gamers will think the same when the games start pumping out again.

Sony is going to lose more if they don’t do this. Them locking players out is turning on them. PlayStation players are pissed because other platforms are playing nice. This could be there game trading moment from when xb1 was introduced... it’s up to Sony and PlayStation players to decide what they want. #crossplaynow
Mad King (5 months ago)
Bladescorpion83 xbox is pc and vice versa because Microsoft practically owns both. The real reason why sony wont do it is because they have much to lose from it the exclusives they have are carrying ps right now. Since there console isnt anything special. Pc has the best graphics and fps let alone game library. Xbox has the best graphics and fps within consoles. And the switch is practically both a portable and at home gaming system. And sony doesnt really have much expect for ps vr which pc already dominates in vr. Sony believes that exclusives alone can carry the ps so unless their playerbase is willing to sacrifice multiplats for exclusives i can only see the playerbase turning on sony. And fortnite is just the start off it. The rest of the gaming industry will be united to the point that only the actual console will determine where a player plays. While those who stuck with sony will be chained to ps. Its like buying an iphone it has nothing special over android and is far more limited. But if the owner wants to switch over to android they cant bring any of their personal stuff or music etc over to android. And this will be the case for sony doubling down on isolationism will only hurt their own playerbase. Because multiplat devs will say why should i waste time and money to update the ps version separately from the others when i can just stop making it for ps. Let alone the ps version would be held second. Just look at overwatch it focuses on pc first and then months later consoles get the update but completely different. Sony will have to make a choice to join the rest of the gaming industry or decay by itself. It wont happen anytime soon but as xbox, pc and nintendo make that pact together sony will be in deep trouble. With not only the playerbase leaving ps but also devs will stop caring for the ps. Because with open borders in consoles you reach a greater audience.
