So if any account logs into their Epic Games account via PS4, their account gets locked to that console?

It gets locked out of ever playing on the Switch or Xbox. It can still be played on PC or Mobile.

I've read people comment about how they play 99% of the time on PC, set up their account on PC. All they ever did was log onto their PS4 once to get some free skin. They now can not play this on their Switch. They need to create a new account and no longer have any of their skins they earned/purchased, ect.

Sounds utter shit man. #playersbeware

 

Microsoft being the good guy now:

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

This is really getting a lot of negative reactions on the internet/social media. They MAY want to rethink this...

This. Or like switching from a galaxy to an iphone and not being able to use your Instagram account. 



but does it mean that if you create your account on a switch, then log with in on a PS4, it will work, but after that you cannot log back to your switch, or you will have a message when you try to log on your ps4 that your account cannot be accessed from a ps4 ?

probably the first thing will happen. At least that's happen if you created your account on PC.

edit: I was wrong, if you created your account on switch you cann't use that account on ps4

Sony seems to be returning to its arrogant, anti consumer ways. I much prefer when they strive to try and get people on there consoles.

Yea that's literally their never ending cycle. They listen to fans when desperate then once they are on a roll they just get so lazy and arrogant. Im not making stuff up lmao ive seen so many people commenting on how they are becoming arrogant again from their latest E3 conference and twitter was fired up when they realised Sony limited their accounts.

#4theplayers my ass. That's exactly why i hate sony. They play all cute and game just to end up at the same place once they have what they want. They sure make great games, but that's it lmao.

Microsoft and Nintendo are literally the exact same. They are only getting friendlier because Sony has the console market on lockdown.
