Even though Fortnite is a cross-platform title, many community members were concerned with the fact that Sony has blocked players from accessing their Fortnite account on the Switch if they have previously played on the PS4.

And Nintendo has announced that its free-to-play version of the game was downloaded more than two million times in the 24 hours after its release on the Switch on Tuesday. "Neither the "Fortnite" website nor Epic Customer Service are able to change this". If you've never played Fortnite, you really shouldn't start on the PS4.

Sony chiefs are under pressure to respond to complaints about "cross-play" restrictions imposed on Fortnite.

"We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience", it said. We also offer "Fortnite" cross-play support with PC, Mac, iOS, and Android devices, expanding the opportunity for "Fortnite' fans on PS4 to play with even more gamers on other platforms". Sony doesn't support cross-console gameplay at present (a stance at odds with both Nintendo and Microsoft) and as a result, anyone who has previously played the game on PS4 can not sync their progress with the Switch version - the only way to play on Switch is to create an entirely new account and begin from scratch.

Not only did Sony did not acknowledge the hottest console out there, which happens to be the Switch right now, but it also did not provide any insight into what would make cross-play impossible between the PS4 and the Switch.

It turns out that Fortnite accounts associated with the PS4 won't work on the Switch.

Sony's PS4 has been the best-selling platform of its generation, but the company's response to the cross-play controversy completely skirts the issue and doesn't provide much hope that the company will reverse course. Xbox One owners have no such worries, as playing the game on that console first does not prevent you from connecting your account to the Switch version. Gaming is one of the most important art forms this planet has.it can be a space that, in a world where we have way too many things that drive us apart, brings us together. We have a contract with the people who go online with us, that we look after them and they are within the PlayStation curated universe.
