Another great month for PS4 as expected. June is going to be interesting. Will the uproar over Fortnite be substantial, or just a bunch of noise? Did E3 move the needle in any way? I never doubted they would win may with God of War and Detroit, but the next few months are hard to judge. Then it should be back in Sony's court come September.
At this point I actually think Microsoft could grab a few of the summer months.
I think Fortnite will at least move a bit more Switch's and Xbox's off of the shelf cause of the drama, but just a small increase I bet. The reason why I think this is largely due to the MSM getting involved and reporting on the story, if it weren't that part of the story I don't think it would of had really any effect.
All that crossplay stuff is a joke... Plus if anything, it ll just make getting a PS4 version of the game even more important, if thats where your friends are.
More likely to be a small boost to PS4s :P
You know whats consumer friendly? that you dont need to pay to play free to play games online on the PS4.
That is a million times more impactful than this crossplay non issue.
Im not sure what will happend once nintendo starts chargeing for online... are free to play games allowed to be played online without a subscription?
nintendo.com says "other games will vary.", meaning it could go either way (ei. no fortnite without a subscription).
On the xbox you need a subscription to play fortnite.
