    I had never played fortnite, but in a FPS probably PC players are gonna rape PS4 users, I understand Sony.

    Is this the real life, is this just fantasy?

    Seriously though, I really wasn't expecting this. This is great for ps users and I'll finally be able to play with some friends that use the ps version. Hopefully this means that PS4 will get the bedrock version of Minecraft now that crossplay is a thing. Looking forward to seeing what other games are opened up for crossplay!

    I wonder if this will stay limited to Fortnite, from pressure from Epic games and Tencent. Or if Sony will open the doors to other games.

    Wow, this could be a major turning point in console history if other big publishers got behind the idea and it became the new normal.

    Don't rewrite history, that argumentation tactic is shameless and boring.

    I bolded up the "nobody cared" part and everything.

    PS: I don't think I'm being cryptic but just in case to make it clear, people cared about stupid anti user policies before as will as they did now, making people fight like fanboys justifying anti user practices in any moment is low and well, perpetuate the anti user practices.

    Hopefully it'll last. Sony has been known for randomly dropping features. This thing should've been here since the beginning imo.

    Well, I do remember no one caring ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Otherwise, maybe Microsoft would have felt pressured to allow cross-play just like what happened to Sony right now.

    But as I said, the past is the past.

    This means Sony doesn't consider PS to be the best place for gaming

    About fucking time. I still hate Sony though. They shouldn't have done it in the first place.

    Are they seriously claiming that Fortnite plays better on PS4 than on PC?

    Right before season 6, it’s an iap test. They wanna see if income fluctuates with such a decision. (That should’ve been on as default).

    Making people fight wasn't my intent, I'm sorry if it came out looking like that. However you have to admit that, at the time, the majority didn't really care despite the fact that 90% of major releases were multiplatform. Heck they didn't even allow crossplay between xbox and pc arguing the fact that pc would have the upper hand (something that's still happening due to the fact that pc can run at unlocked framerates and sports a better control scheme for most games).
