This particular discussion has been going on for months, but it blew up when Fortnite players discovered they can't use their accounts to play on Nintendo Switch if the same account was used to play on PS4 before. New Sony CEO Kenichiro Yoshida made a statement at the IFA conference (via Gamestop) in Berlin, basically saying the console would never allow for cross-play, particularly for Fortnite. In a conversation with Eurogamer, Layden said that Sony was listening to people's feedback and stated that they were "looking at a lot of the possibilities".

According to Mike Ybarra, all games should be crossplay and cross progression. While the PS4 version of Fortnite is crossplay-compatible with PC and mobile, it is not with XBox One and Switch. "Larger gaming audience who wants to play together". He also suggested that Sony is doing a disservice to its users by not supporting cross-play. Although the console hasn't been in production for over five years, up until now Sony offered a fix clinic for diehard fans of the PS2.

Smith said there's more to it than rain and flooding; it's also the unsafe rip currents and possible power outages. A storm surge covered barrier islands as the storm blew through, and some inland roadways were flooded as well.

If, like me, you hold on to your gaming hardware then you've probably got at least one PS2 in your collection. Independent reported on the Sony executive's talks and said that he addressed the topic of cross-play during the event and said that Fortnite is best played on the PlayStation 4.

Yoshida pointed out that Sony supports cross-play between PS4 and PC, and that going forward the company will "decide based on what is the best user experience".
