    Over the last few months, there has been much controversy over Sony's approach to cross-platform multiplayer. From locking gamers to their own platform in Fortnite to claiming that Playstation is the superior platform, Playstation have had a plethora of excuses to justify their decisions.

    Today, Sony published a blog post on their official blog, announcing that they are finally looking into the matter. Starting from today, Fortnite players on Playstation 4 will be able to play with other players on Android, iOS, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Windows, and Mac. Right now, it is being called an 'open beta', and Sony is still claiming that playing is 'best on Playstation'.

    Sony will also be looking into crossplay in other third-party titles in the future.

    That's good to hear, I suppose, but it's still rather arrogant of them to keep claiming that the game is best played on their own system without any valid claims to back it up. I know it's all PR and all that jazz, but it's still bound to rub everyone the wrong way.

    Besides, does this fix the other issue people were having with Fortnite on the PS4 where people were having their accounts locked to the PS4 version of the game? This looks like it only fixes part of the problem.

    I have a lot of friends who would rather play stuff on PC, so this makes bortz a happy spider. Hopefully Warframe is one of the titles to follow suit.

    I wonder if they'll release the accounts that were trapped on PlayStation.

    Good job, Sony. You're still idiots though for doing it in the first place and I doubt people will forgive you this fast for what you did.

    So will we see this on other games now, too? Rocket League? Fallout 76? Because then finally, all these platforms can coexist.

    AKA Sony enters the 21st century.

    I'm glad to hear it, even if this never should've been an issue at all, its still great to see sony grow up and give us crossplay.

    This is great news! I'm happy for everyone that this helps.
    My brother was very upset that he couldn't use his PS4 Fortnite account on Switch, so this will be great for him. And, now I can play with my Xbox friends.
    A bit late, Sony, but good job nonetheless!
