Nintendo Jabs Sony For Sabotaging Fortnite Cross-Play, Sony Issues Feckless Response

Nintendo of America President, Reggie Fils-Aime, confirmed to Polygon that the game had "more than two million downloads in less than 24 hours" after launch.

Fortnite players wishing to play the newly released Switch version of the game have discovered that their Epic Games accounts are being blocked if they ever played the game on a PlayStation 4.

"We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience." the statement reads before continuing on to highlight the number of PS4 Fornite players, as well as cross-platform play with IOS, Android and PC. "We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point".

When it was announced that "Fortnite Battle Royale" was coming to the Nintendo Switch and that it's available right now, many fans rejoiced.

Many folks who are looking to bring their progress from the PlayStation 4 version of Fortnite onto the Switch will be out of luck.

LEGIQN, a popular streamer and YouTuber, put the Fortnite "skill gap" for Nintendo Switch players on display in a hilarious manner by luring an opponent into a Damage Trap easily - twice. These links leave Siliconera.

He said high demand for the game to be on the Switch console led to the surge in downloads. Then again, if it was simply a matter of tweaking some back-end stuff, you'd think the typically quite responsive Fortnite team would've either resolved the issue or at least explained it by now. This isn't the case when moving from an Xbox One or PC.

In order to play on the Nintendo Switch, they'd need to create a new account.

To give you a better idea as to how frustrating this is, we tried to log into Fortnite on Nintendo Switch following Tuesday's announcement.

That means people who purchased in-game cosmetic items and linked their Epic accounts to their PS4 can't access those items on their Switch or Xbox. Assuming that this makes up the bulk of the feedback, it's likely that Sony will reverse its decision. They could also simply stick with playing the game on the PS4, but many would likely find this unacceptable. This was a direct result of Sony not allowing PS4 owners that happen to own a Switch as well to transfer their account to the Nintendo Switch. People are getting locked out of their stuff on a platform that uses the slogan "this is for the players". More so when you consider Fortnite's Save the World mode is subject to several issues that are yet to be fixed, according to VG 247 a host of issues regarding its UI are yet to be rectified.
