Well it seemed like you were trying to see my points, but weren't quite there, so I felt the need to elaborate. Apparently I was mistaken I guess.
'The Fortnite account is associated with a platform we knowingly gave into even though we knew what the better decision would have been for the gamers but instead we caved. We can't do anything about it because we already signed a contract. We shouldn't have done that but it's too late now. Please don't hate us and open a new account and continue to play our game while purchasing more micro-transactions'. Unless Nin is the one blocking PS accounts from being on Switch, which is more unlikely, that's my take on it.
Were you there when Epic Games and Sony were negotiating Fortnite's PS4 port? Have you access to the contracts themselves?
PS gave a horrible PR response and still won me over so. I have no issue pointing out problems when any brand crosses the line, and while PS is getting closer, they haven't quite got there yet.
Sounds like you at least acknowledge PS has slowly been adopting increasingly anti-consumer policy.
Even if we assume there we no further dealings, its pretty obvious that whatever deal they made was for competition console devices, and not specifically just the X1.
We don't know that. Without being able to look at business exchanges themselves, we cannot say that the X1 wasn't singled out.
Either way, Sony not having cross-play with either X1 or Switch before Fortnite was released, and then not allowing content transfer with X1, only makes the issue with Switch even more obvious. Like, its possible they didnt know but in no way is it probable.
And I by no means argue that EG dont want a more open environment. But they accepted the terms given to them from Sony. because money was a lot more important to them than being pro-consumer. Agreeing and signing that agreement is more than just some blame. They had a role to play in all of this.
Yes EG played their role and NOW they're trying to rectify things and open things up for everyone and allow maximum accessibility with no restrictions. Donald Mustard from Epic wants it but the entity standing in the way is Sony.
It all comes down to Sony in the end.
