Forums - Gaming Discussion - Crossplay coming to Fortnite PS4 Today!

Seems Sony has finally listened to reason. ^^ Of course by reason I mean consumer backlash.

Yeah it's a lot more than that and a lot more than you think lol

Corrected lol jk :P  Ya I know quite a few friends that are actually happy with this.  It doesn't really affect me but I'm glad Sony caved in as it seems that's what everybody wanted.

Aye, I don't really benefit from crossplay that much either, but gotta think about more than just considering myself with the overall picture. Now we just need square/microsoft to strike a deal for FFXIV to be on XB1, so we can have PS4/PC/XB1 crossplay like the xbox 360/ps2/pc days of FFXI

First Nintendo reveals the six month grace period for their online service, now Sony allows crossplay. We face a severe lack of reasons to complain, folks!

Six months? When was this revealed? I'm curious...

I still don't know why Sony didn't allow it at first



This is mostly a response to this very undeserved backlash.

During the PS360 era you didn't have these Third Party devs or fans blackmailing Microsoft into Crossplay even tho it was the one Gen where the playing field was the most even. Multiplat games split was like 1.3:1 ratio instead of the 2+:1 ratio they are now. I feel like it simply comes down to Sony is a drastically smaller company so they were more easy to bully from their throne position. I don't know of any magical change in the development of these games which makes them more viable now with Crossplay than they were then. MS was on top and refused to come from their position.....until the tables turn and then everyone jumps on Sony's case and makes them look like the"Bad Guy" when really it was just the pre existing tradition.

The biggest question is how this will effect microtransaction royalties. Like who is getting that cut?

EDIT: Maybe Sony has worked out a specific deal with Epic. If the account began on PS4 then they permanently get tethered to microtransaction royalties even when purchased on another console. That would at least make this situation not a complete detriment to the Playstation Brand and not making Sony the one who has to lose by offering this.

MS just released a Fortnite bundle and touted the ability to play with other consoles. I wonder if MS and Nintendo are actually happy about this?

Nintendo never gave any statement to the crossplay affair at all, except that they advertised the games on their platform with the feature. I don't think they care if Sony is in it or not. MS used it to take shots at Sonys reputation. They lose an opportunity to do so.

The winners are the gamers on all platforms.

Apparently IGN asked and got an answer ... today. It's not six months but 180 days. Which is not exactly the same.
