That's awesome. Crossplay is just great for consoles that might not have a big audience for certain games.

Or if your friends play it on a different console as you



Pocky Lover Boy!

Good job Sony. Next, announce PS5 supporting full BC with all PS systems then drop your mic, or rather, smash it upon the head of the closest butthurt hater.

In what way was playing Fortnite on PS4 any different to any other platform? Genuinely curious as I don't play it. Were the controls worse? Downgraded graphics?

The PS4 locked out the majority of the player base. I was talking about console sales and the snowball effect. Someone who was looking to buy a console and considered Fortnite as a game they wanted to play wasn't going to look at the PS4 favorably, because it limited the freedom of choice.

Sony didn't change their mind on crossplay because of kindness. It's business, and they realized that they were on the wrong side of a growing trend. Better to act now than to wait and allow other consoles to gain positive traction with free-to-play crossplay titles.

The majority of the playerbase would be PC, mobile and Playstation themselves which all had crossplay with each other.

Second sentence doesn't make sense all Fortnite is still the top downloaded Free to play game on PSN even after the hoopla (and has been for years) meaning that new and old buyer alike are still downloading the game.  Also Matt Piscatella from NPD mentions that Fortnite is still the main driver of sales for consoles during this past summer.



I'm not sure how I feel about this tbh. If they added it to Final Fantasy XV comrades I'd be happy I guess.

I wonder how this work with other games though, because people are now  going to expect cross play in every game....

That's what I hope. Such stuff never really affects sales, the VoiceChat debate also doesn't hurt Switch-sales. So things that are beneficial for the customer (in this case the player) but not for the company are usually omitted. But Microsoft and Epic were taking shots at Sonys reputation, that's why I think Sony reconsidered. As crossplay is beneficial for gamers I hope the public debate now makes it impossible to deny it in the future, as it is simply expected. In that case the companies have no chance. That includes also MS, if they get in the situation like they were with the 360.

This is an outrage! I won't stand for them allowing riff raff to share our servers! I'm selling my PS4 and breaking my copy of Fortnite in two. Canceling my PS Plus account as well.

So now everyone is happy? Or is there still that odd representation of Sony fans that claimed they didn't want crossplay, and now they are upset? Or was it all a ruse?

I don't play Fortnite, and I don't have Plus  So I guess I'm always upset.

Are you agreeing or disagreeing?



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Absolutely fantastic news. Good guy Sony does it again. So happy to hear this!

That's what you want and maybe even expect me to say right? Well guess what I still believe we shouldn't have cross play with xbox which is the main competitor to the platform i game on. Switch, pc and mobile I've no problem. So while I'm not happy i accept it and I'll curiously watch to see who this move benefits the most long term.

Can anybody explain to me how this will benefit Sony more then xbox? Because atm I'm leaning towards it being the opposite.



so does this mean that the best gameplay experience for sony users has been diminished? sad day.
