Forums - Gaming Discussion - Sony Boss: Fortnite On PlayStation 4 Is The Best Experience For Users

It would hurt Sony to do crossplay. It is like asking them to give the PS4 out for free. I don't know why these delusional individuals think that you can just ask for things and they will be given.



Around the Network

So there will be no PS5/PS4 crossplay in the future for some gams because the PS4 will be inferior?

And why are they allowing PS4Pro/PS4 crossplay in Fortnite despite the PS4 being the inferior console?

Why have they advertized PS4/PS3 crossplay or PS4/Vita crossplay or PS3/Vita crossplay or PS4/PS3/Vita crossplay in so many games in the past despite the PS3 or the Vita being the inferior console?

damnit, I wanted to slaughter all those android/IOS/switch users. Oh well~ /s

on a serious note, his explanation makes perfect sense. This is mostly the developers fault for not finding a parity for balance purposes. I don't understand the complainers at all.. it's like they want to break the game even further.

What are you blaming the devs for?

If you need a PS4 to play your friends, you buy a PS4 to play your friends.

What was the argument back in the day when XB1 owners needed a reason to counter the higher resolutions on the PS4? Oh, yeah, I read it that many times I don't know how I forgot: 'All my friends play on the XB1 so that's why I bought it.' Mmmm ... why would they need an XB1 to play with their friends? I can't for the life of me think why.

This narrative is brought to you by your friendly neighbourhood MS. 'Because they're the good guys.'

Microsoft ARE the good guys here. They're not abducting people's Fortnite accounts.

In addition, one thing I really like about them is they're not locking otherwise-XBox exclusives to XBox. They put some of those games on PC so if you have a capable PC, you don't need to buy an XBox. I call this "giving people more options" and it's pretty f***ing great!

I am so sick of having people trying to make XB1/Switch/PS4 crossplay happen, its not going to happen. These companies are competitors and for Sony to allow such a thing is to directly play into their competitor's hands. They want to take away the incentives that Sony offers that have people choosing it over the others in droves. Exclusivity has always been the name of the game in Video Games. It is the deciding factor of why you choose COD over Battlefield, XBox over Playstation, etc, etc. Exclusive features are what define them and userbase is one of the largest selling factors.

Do you know how many times people used "Well all my friends had a 360 so I got a 360" as a decider?

"Well it isn't Fair."
What isn't fair is trying to get one company to do work for their competition when they have continued to exclaim they don't want to.

"Sony is standing in the way of progress. It is important now because we have never been closer."
WHAT!? The only change in the game is the Switch, which arguably NEEDS to be crossplay because it is at the largest disadvantage with online userbase on the fact it just came out. All this is is a role reversal. Sony INVENTED crossplay back in PS3 era and extended the offer to xbox and got a firm denial. Because Microsoft knew what Sony knows now, its a selling point. Now that Xbox players are at this huge disadvantage on userbase and friend groups are separated in a different manner they want Sony to be the one to bend? Come on now. Back when it was PS360 if you had PS3 but all your friends had 360 and you wanted to play with them.....you got a damn 360. End of story.

People threatening boycotts also makes zero sense. Sony still has Crossplay with both PC and Phones.....of Which they completely eclipse What is possible with PC/Phone/XB1/Switch combined......thats how much of a lead Sony has. You would be leaving the largest circle just to make a point that is ridiculous from the start.

"They want to take away the incentives that Sony offers that have people choosing it over the others in droves."

>No one I know of is asking Sony to give away their exclusive games.

"Do you know how many times people used "Well all my friends had a 360 so I got a 360" as a decider?"

>What's the count so far?

"What isn't fair is trying to get one company to do work for their competition when they have continued to exclaim they don't want to."

>If you think that's unfair, get a load of this!:

>I appreciate the history lesson but the year is 2018 now, not 2013. We're not in the PS360 era anymore but Sony certainly helps it feel that way sometimes.

"People threatening boycotts also makes zero sense."

>Some have reason to feel upset.

They probably should've said because they're winning, that would've at least been understandable...



Some forum troll is head of Sony now? What the heck.

This argument is completely invalidated by having crossplay with mobile and PC devices.

Maybe he meant inferior Userbases. Both Phone and PC have far more potential in rivaling Sony there, hence they are worth taking the L with Crossplay. 

He said inferior experience, try again funny guy. But I'm sure you got a witty response about how great Fortnite is on a touch screen and going below 30 fps.

Sony is taking the anti consumer option. Which is fine, Sony is allowed to do that. Its funny when Sony is praised for it though.

I think PS4 PRO players shouldn't play with PS4 players and only with XBO X players. Standard PS4 is such an inferior console to PS4 PRO.

lol, this isn't Metal Gear Survive or something, it's Fortnite. No platform it's been released on needs any help with its player base. It's like... literally the most popular game around. This excuse is as much nonsense now as it was when people drug it out for other games that need zero help in player base, like Minecraft, or Rocket League.

As if we needed any proof this is just steamy PR bullshit, you have the fact that they lock your account hostage if you ever log onto a PS system even just for a skin. This is about money, nothing more. #4theplayers lol.

Of course, Fortnite doesn't need any help in the playerbase area. But what happens when another game that is less popular than Fortnite comes around. Infinite Warfare (or was it Advanced Warfare) for the Windows Store version had so little players, that it had to issue refunds days after the game was bought. It could happen, especially since PSN is 2-3 times bigger than the other competition. Nintendo and Xbox want Crossplay because it benefits them, there is literally nothing for them to lose if they get Crossplay. Sony on the other hand, because of its current dominance in the market, has a lot more to lose. There is a group of 10 friends that want to play Fortnite, 4 of them want to get a PS4. If they all want to play together, the other 6 would have to buy a PS4. Now if Crossplay was implemented, the other 6 could buy a Switch or Xbone. That is six players that could potentially go to the Playstation ecosystem, but because Crossplay was available, go somewhere else.

Don't get me wrong, the whole locking down your account is stupid and I condemn that. It was a scummy move all around, but I'm also a realistically looking at Sony as a business. People seem to forget that these are businesses and they will do everything they can to get money. I don't have any imaginary expectations that Sony will treat their costumers like they are family. No business does that. Period. If all this outrage actually slowed down the sales of the PS4, then Crossplay might be implemented. But it seems like people just want to jump on the bandwagon and post their opinions online while also play and buy PS4 games. 

Or the other 4 have to buy a PC/XBO/Switch/Smartphone.

Seriously, if I was among those 6 and playing on Switch or Xbox, I'd tell them to play either on their Smartphone, a PC or buy some other console than a PS4.

I guess if your talking different platforms and not different experiences, which is mostly what those other platforms offer, isn't it?

Being able to access an account IS part of the experience and the PlayStation experience is hampered compared to the X1/Switch experience.

PS players can't access their accounts? Since when?

It is going to be curious how Sony will handle Rocket League's cross-platform IDs. It will probably be just like Fortnite.

If you want to be picky, the Switch can also be three different experiences and with no additional expense.

Also should keep in mind that the 4 systems which do not include the PS4 lists "smart phones" I mean, android and ios are two completely different OS's and devices, to say they are the same is like saying that ps4/X1 are the same.

On topic though... this is terrible PR statement, one of those times when he would have done better to just not say anything or just punch the reporter who asked the question then run away making zoidberg noises, anything would be better than saying this shite from a PR point of view imo. X1X offers a more powerful system, PC is more powerful, Switch offers more versatility and free (cheaper in the future) online access. In what way exactly is the ps4 the best way to play the game? I mean, even if you're talking about the ps4p you still have the x1x and pcs which mash it in terms of power.

Switch would be 3 different experiences in one using the same hardware. Unless your talking about Labo, and I'm not exactly sure that counts as hardware.

Good point about the phones. That could extend to Windows and Steam for PC though too couldn't it?

Both the PS and MS statements this week are ridiculous. I get the feeling that PS saw MS use a lousy justification and get away with it in terms of minimum negative feedback, so PS figured they would use the same thing for their cross play 'issue'. MS is just covering up the fact that their sales are weak and we all know why, and PS is covering up the fact they won't allow cross play, and we all know why. Neither company was being honest with those statements, and we all know why.

Oh planet Earth! The home of native lands, 
True social law, in all of us demand.
With cattle farts, we view sea rise,
Our North sinking slowly.
From far and snide, oh planet Earth, 
Our healthcare is yours free!
Science save our land, harnessing the breeze,
Oh planet Earth, smoke weed and ferment yeast.
Oh planet Earth, ell gee bee queue and tee.

More like "For the Player's money", heh

No, it's just a typo, that l is too much. It's meant to mean "#for the payers"

I'm out!
