The PlayStation debacle on cross platform play continues! Sony’s CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, speaking at a conference in Berlin was asked about cross platform play, as PlayStation 4 remains the only platform that players cannot cross play on Fortnite between consoles. Xbox One and Nintendo Switch allow players to play with each other and share progression. PS4 players can play with PC and mobile players, but not Xbox One or Switch.
Speaking at the conference, Sony CEO said that Fortnite will not be getting cross play on PS4 because PlayStation is the best place to play Fortnite. Sony apparently does not want to share cross platform on platforms where the game’s experience is worse.
“On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our belief,” he said. “But actually, we already opened some games as cross-platform with PC and some others, so we decide based on what is the best user experience. That is our way of thinking for cross-platform.”
