Fortnite on Nintendo Switch Causes Problems For Sony

Sony is receiving backlash from players that are unable to transfer their progress between consoles if they signed into their Epic Games account with their PS4. This issue was revealed when Fortnite was released for the Nintendo Switch.

This isn’t the first time that gamers had limited options for transferring game content across consoles. Two major flagship titles, Grand Theft Auto Five and Destiny offered players the opportunity to transfer their progress from one generation to the next. But even then, players were forced to stick to their console family.

Why Fortnite on Nintendo Switch Created a Huge Buzz for Sony

According to Nintendo, Fortnite received 2 million downloads within the first 24 hours on the Nintendo Switch eshop. Epic Games announced that Fortnite has 125 million players within its community. Fortnite’s success is drawing more attention to Sony as they refuse cross-compatibility gaming.

Rocket League, Witcher 3’s Gwent, and Minecraft are also games where the Sony community is unable to cross-play with other consoles.

Microsoft and Nintendo are allowing their consumer bases to play with other gaming platforms.

Sony and Nintendo Switch Fortnite Players are Divided

Sony, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch can play Fortnite.
Sony, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch are able to play Fortnite…just not together.

In a statement released to the BBC, a spokeswoman from Sony 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. We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point.”

Gamers are unsatisfied with this answer, so they are using social media to vent their frustrations.
