Why would Epic spite MS or Nintendo?

Could have to do with PUBG and it's deal with MS since it's competition

But MS and Nintendo are EG's business partners.

and this negative press being backed by MS and Nin.

Negative press that reflects badly on Sony, not Epic Games.

for others like myself, it means Epic is in more trouble than PS. If this negative press leads to MS and Nin gamers boycotting Fortnite at some level, then it wouldn't be a dumb idea for Epic to strengthen their locked down player base on PS4 to make up for those losses.

I suppose if you twist logic far enough, it could seem like Epic is in more trouble but it makes no sense for Epic to do this to their own playerbase and account holders. It makes sense why Sony would want to do this.

There have also been rumors of PUBG coming to Switch, so all the more reason for Epic to perhaps double down on PS4 since PUBG doesn't and may never exist on that platform.

Or perhaps more reason for EG to not worry about Fortnite on PS4 since PUBG won't be coming to that platform and aim towards making sure X1 and Switch Fortnite players invest more time towards Fortnite than PUBG.
