Fortnite PS4 and Xbox One cross-play ‘mishap’ fixed

[media:51669]

Over the past weekend, something extraordinary happened in a Fortnite match; cross-play between PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. As we stated in our news coverage of the occurrence, we were unsure if it even really went down as the player described, turns out it was exactly what happened.

Fortnite developer, Epic Games, told PlayStation Universe the following regarding the incident. “We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected.”

Seems allowing cross-play between all three platforms isn't that big a deal – technically as it can be switched on or off before you can say, “I shot a PS4 player and I liked it.” (Over the weekend a PS4 player was shot by an Xbox One player, who noticed the odd username, and investigated to the conclusion that he was bested by an Xbox One Fortnite player).

Seems allowing cross-play between all three major platforms is a big issue for either Sony or Microsoft, or both. AS I stated in the previous news piece, Sony previously said they don't want to allow cross-play on Minecraft because of the young age group they're dealing with. Have to protect the children kind of thing.

Cross-play is something gamers want, and over the past weekend, some lucky players had that chance meeting. It must've felt like discovering the biggest Fortnite treasure chest, only to have some 'bully' come take it away.

Fortnite is currently in Early Access for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One, with a free-to-play release planned for 2018.
