    Epic Games and Sony are partnering up, as Sony Corporation has invested $250 million dollars in Epic Games, in order to secure a minority stake in the company. According to the press release, this strategic investment will allow both parties to better collaborate, in both gaming and the "digital entertainment landscape". This follows Sony and Epic showing off the new Unreal Engine 5 together during the PlayStation 5 showcase event.

    Nah, but I wouldn’t be surprised if Sony makes everyone have Fortnite on their home screen like they did for Singstar on the PS3.

    Orbital and Spine say hello.

    DAE see this coming from a mile away given a lot of these Sony exclusives showing up to PC were first on EGS as opposed to Steam?

    I won't be surprised if those will be the only ways to run it on PC, going off of how tightly Sony is holding onto Demon Souls. :P

    Ummm, isn't that one of the bigger positives of consoles, is that everything is sold at ONE store? Your only "launcher" is your console's operating system?

    Also, I see Epic is thinking about the future. Fortnite isn't going to remain super popular forever.

    That is not a play I expected.

    Tencent, Sony and Epic together in bed... this could get interesting.
