Epic owns Fortnite right? So I simply can't understand how Sony could tell Epic what to do with their game on other systems? If anything it's the other way around, Epic owns Fortnite. Sony could try to pressure Epic, yes but in the end they cannot force Epic because what happens between Epic and Nintendo or Epic and Microsoft is NONE of Sony's business.
Only situation I can think of is Sony having signed an agreement with Epic on this issue, that per agreement Fortnite accounts made on Sony must not be compatible with other platforms, in which case YES, I could see how Sony has the upper hand here but in the end, why would Epic sign such an agreement?
By that logic we must blame exclusives games cause a game that comes exclusively on a platform from a studio NOT owned by that platform is nothing more than a legal agreement: We make our game for your platform exclusively.
In which case this would make this a dick move from both Sony and Epic. If that's the case then yeah, Nintendo and Microsoft have nothing to do with this. So is this the case?
You know it deserves the GOTY.
