    Do you still remember the drama going around Sony for not allowing cross-play with other platforms and flat-out trapping Fortnite accounts on their platform once linked? Well, Sony's CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, has finally given us an explanation as to why. He believes PlayStation is the platform where you get the best user experience with the game and that allowing cross-play would hurt that experience.

    Of course!

    I mean, playstation not being the only gaming machine out there is still beyond my comprehension

    And let's not forget the fact that PlayStation >>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Everything in life, there's scientific proof

    I have news for you, Kenichiro Yoshida.
    PC is the best place to play Fortnite, it will ALWAYS be superior to your shitty ShitStation.

    Asshole.

    PS4 is technically a PC, custom here and there but still a PC. He isnt actually that wrong but PS4 is NOT "THE BEST PC" out there.

    I'm pretty sure that's not the point.

    Also, it's a really weak PC by today's standards. Even the Pro.

    But it will never be on pair with current gen PCs.
    The specs are greatly outmatched there.

    Really, it doesn't even matter if PS4 is a PC or not, every console is to some extend, but what this guy claims is just plain bullshit.
    Every gamer can decide what console to play it on today, and Sony is the only asshole company that does not want to include crossplay in many games.

    This will bite them in the ass, I hope many Sony users realize this.

    give them a shity excuse, they are not happy
    give them the truth, they are not happy

    make your mind, i am glad about their honesty, we all know the pc is the best machine and way better, but i can't blame them for wanting people to believe the playstation is the best gaming system

    That’s okay, I wasn’t interested in the BloodborneStation anyway.

    So while Nintendo and Microsoft are openly and visibly partnering and respecting each others differences, Sony literally makes a statement saying they're the best and everything else is inferior?
    Sounds about right.

    You'll still have the fanboys defending their anti-consumer stance. "but Muh eclusseeevz"

    I don't care about them and their hardware.

    Technically any console and game device, in fact anything with a CPU, is a custom built PC. Only difference between those and a typical PC is on a PC, you can upgrade your hardware and install whatever you want without having to spend hundreds of dollars just to buy a whole new thing or finding hax to bypass security to install whatever you want. Plus, a PC is always backwards compatible and can easily run emulators and Virtual Machines like dosbox or RetroArch libraries, unlike certain consoles.

    This is literally one of the worst answers to be able to give. This just doesn't justify anything at all, and not only that, but shows a very dumb vision about overall gaming industry. Okay, your console might be the best system out, but... Where does this even comes into the whole play? People would still be looking to play on their systems, cooperating with yours. No one is buying a PS4 ONLY for playing Fortnite if they already own another console like the Switch or the Xbox One. It's not really excusing anything...

    I feel like Sony should have just kept quiet. This is like little kids trying to get the last word. People were kind of forgetting about this.

    Also kind of ironic when Microsoft said almost the exact same thing last generation, almost no one called them out.
