Righto, this thread has been derailed enough, let get things back on topic. And give me a second to access the damages.

By that logic you shouldn't be able to play on PC or Mobile after playing on PSN. The issue isn't that your DLC doesn't carry over anyway, the issue is your epic games account is locked out from ever playing on Switch/Xbox if you played it on PS4. There's no reason for it.

unless sony makes it clear it's doing crossplay like it has with fortnite for PC and mobile, why the hell would i expect it? and whats the big deal about a epic account? can't you just make a new one easily? or i guess because it has friend lists and stuff, IDK i'm not into online gaming.

Has all of your progress and stats on it, I.E you spend hundreds of hours levelling up on PS4 and want to play on Switch/Xbox? Well you'll have to create a new account and lose all the progress you've made, and items you've unlocked.

It's not crossplay that's the main problem, it's your account being locked.

You may have even barely played it on PS4, I.E hundreds of hours on PC/Mobile and 20 minutes on PS4 to check it out, your account with hundreds of hours is now locked from ever playing on Xbox/Switch because of those 20 minutes.

Ok i understand now, i don't understand why sony is doing this, doesn't make any sense. I guess we can get back on topic now.

LOL how did this become sony vs nintendo.  As far a game being a console mega hit who cares, ps4 doesn't need that  to sell, so not sure why it matters if the game is a mega hit or not as long it a amazing game for you. As for switch really only has wiiu games aside from Mario odyssey, if you have a wiiu, its really not worth getting a switch unless you love portability.  

It's not about Sony vs Nintendo, but it's not like there's anything comparable I could show from Xbox is there? Microsoft are busy sitting in the corner by themselves right now, while Nintendo are busy setting the standard for console gaming.
Playstation as you've quite aptly put are only focused on their wallet right now, and figuring out a way they can monopolize Fortnite. Good for them I guess.
"For the Players".

I think you're being quite harsh.

Xbox is basically trying to deliver better CPU and Nintendo is still recovering from the worst console ever, just releasing Wii U ports. In the meantime, PS4 is just full of high quality games for all tastes. It's just the #1 console of this generation.



God bless You.

My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

LOL at the standard for console gaming. weak third party support, much weaker then home consoles that released 4 years ago, and over priced accessories, and games, we got last us remaster, and uncharted collection basically free with hardware, or 19.99-29.99 can't remember, mean while nintendo charges 60$ for ports not even remastered or remade.

Good point. If we want to find a company that is all about money, that's Nintendo. The most expensive products come from Nintendo for no reason.

 

 

edit: Sorry if I'm being off topic, I was quoting old posts without reading the new ones. I'm going back to it.

Where did you get they will be announcing the 22-23 million next meeting? Also does that even line up with shipments? That numbers sounds off to me.....and lastly why will it be fun to watch the adjustments here?

From nowhere. I'm just saying. I don't buy those VGC's numbers. 3 moths ago Ninty announced 17.79m shipped. Are you seriously taking 17.7 sold at 06/09?

My point is: Nintendo WILL announce more consols shipped/sold/whatever, and here in the Neverland they're implying that have what? 2-3 million on shelves? c'mon.

I mean the Switch hasn't really been selling like hotcakes this year. But it has been doing very well. So the 17.7 seem reasonable. Maaybe slightly under tracked but not by a huge margin. 2-2.5million on shelves sounds pretty normal....especially during the slow months like this.
