I'm confused how at the end of the day this is Epic fault. How is it Epic's fault that Sony has a policy that block third party accounts from being used on multiple platforms. What do you want them to do, break that rule and be sued into oblivion, or not port the game and lose out on tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars. Sony is the root of the issue for blocking these accounts from being used and its them being anti-consumer. While Fortnite money might help them put more money into there investors pockets, it doesn't change the fact that its anti-consumer to block your customers accounts.... I think you should know that according to the NPD, 40% of US Switch owners also own a PS4, Sony is potentially fucking over 8 or 9 million people right now. But they are doing For the Players I guess.
I want Epic to act like adults and make a choice. Choose to be as pro consumer as possible, based on what the people deem as acceptable, or choose to go to the 'dark side'. They apparently chose the dark side. If you think that is a horrible decision, then start a campaign to boycott Fortnite, don't blame PS. If Fortnite is such a great and amazing game, there should be no reason why they couldn't tell PS to take a hike, and convince everyone who wants to play, to buy another platform. If your going to talk about numbers, what about the 80+ million people that own/play games on PS4. Have they all been screwed over? How many people potentially could be effected doesn't matter, its how many are actually effected.
I'll agree that if you start an account on another platform, and fire up that account on PS4, and it then locks the content of that account solely to PS4, that is a problem. That is something PS and Epic would need to address. Otherwise I see it as fair game.
