Fortnite PS4 PlayStation 4 1

Oh boy, this quote is sure to rile some people up. Speaking at the IFA Technology show in Germany, Sony chief executive Kenichiro Yoshida was quizzed on the current situation surrounding the lack of cross-console play functionality for the PlayStation 4 version of Fortnite

He said: "On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PS4 is the best experience for users – that's our belief."

The PS4 version of Fortnite has indeed received some exclusive treatment with bonus skins accessible via a PlayStation Plus account as well as a console bundle, but we'd hardly say that improves the experience as a whole for the average player. 

This does tie back into an article we published earlier in the year though, where we went into detail about why we think Sony aren't willing to budge. It's clear that Sony values its current PS4 install base, and if the company believes that it is offering its users the very best Fortnite experience, why does the Japanese giant need to open the gates to those who don't even own a PS4?

Of course, the battle will continue to rage on however. What do you think? Do you believe that Xbox and Nintendo Switch players are playing an inferior version of Fortnite? Get off the battle bus and into the comments below.
