I have not the slightest idea, I'm not familiar with how EG operates behind closed doors.

Maybe EG is incompetent like you suggest or maybe they are not contractually allowed to warn users of the restriction: if I were Nintendo, Sony, or Microsoft, I wouldn't want users knowing they're about to potentially sabotage their EG account in some way by linking it to my network. I wouldn't warn the user either and EG could do little to influence the messaging I provide to the users of my network.

Of course this issue is only there to begin with because of Sony's policy which contrasts to Nintendo's and Microsoft's.

and because EG were ultimately ok agreeing with it.

I assume they have to or else no PS4 release.

Now I wonder who's footing the bill for those bundles.

Yeah, and I'm sure Sony merely asked nicely and didn't basically hold their 80mil user install base to ransom.  You can give EG 20% of the blame if it makes you feel better.  80% belongs with the platform holder.  Sony makes the rules, Sony came up with this policy.   Sony can be rid of it with the snap of a finger, EG can't do shit.  

And about all your posts about EG not warning people...do you really think Sony wouldn't wrap such a deal in an ironclad NDA?  Do you think they are that freaking dense?

3rd party developers are happy to make PS4 bundles since launch ( remember that Watch Dogs ye ), also Fortnite is a big dog right now so it is a good partner for Sony.

Ultimately, both sides have to agree to make a deal.

Investors will rather have account switching allowed rather than swaths of bad PR at Sony's faces.

By the way, Sony stock was down 2% because of this. How ironic.  We can't screw up PS investors if PS already is doing that themselves.

SNY Corp is back up and hit $50 per share today, the highest the stock has been since 2008.

A noble cause Mr. Smedley but stuff can change in three years. Hope Sony sees sense but I doubt it...

Well this was obvious from the start that it was about money lol.

SNY stock price agree's.

So is PS going to allow cross accounts but make up the difference by selling Fortnite bundles, or is this because Fortnite now owes PS due to the recent backlash that's being kept hush hush for whatever reason, or is PS and/or Epic simply throwing this in MS and Nin's faces to spite them?

Well you could also say it's actually 27% the consumers fault, since they have given PS4 a 60% majority portion of the console market as of this point in time. The PS4 customers have given PS this position which has led to these rules and policies.

Edit* changed 33% to 27%. 33 would be an equal third, 27 is everyone above that.

All this talk about anti consumer this and pro consumer that just hides the fact that every decision these companies make are designed.to be pro company first and foremost.

 

Almost every few pages there is a post saying how funny it is to see sony fans defending this, but what they don't get is that the joke is on them. It is exactly as you say.

I'm sure any developer would be happy with getting more users to play their games.

Why would Epic spite MS or Nintendo?

You can look out for the company and not be an asshole about it.  The adversarial approach that some companies take with regards to consumer relations is short sighted, foolish, and unnecessary.
