Fortnite was announced on Tuesday during the Nintendo Direct for E3 for Switch. It released the same day. Within twenty-four hours, it reached over 2 million downloads off of the Nintendo eShop alone. Following its release, PlayStation 4 owners of the game that signed into the Nintendo Switch version were unable to sign in to their accounts on PSN.
When PS4 owners could not log in to their accounts on PSN, gamers became angry at Sony. What is Sony’s reasoning for this? They did comment but mostly evaded the question all together.
Sony has over 80 million PSN active users. The company also wants to hear what fans want. Or so they say. They did comment, “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.” No mention of Xbox One or Switch listed. This is very disappointed as PS4 users must create additional accounts, losing progress and are unable to restore their purchases.
I think Sony’s real reasoning for this is Consoles. Yes, Sony has around 80 million PS4’s sold and 80 million active PSN accounts. I believe since Sony is in the console business, (even though they put Tiny Metal on Switch) they want to compete with Microsoft and Nintendo. Whereas as PC (an open source platform, unless referring to Windows) Mac, and iOS/Android, they do not wish to compete there. Hopefully though, Sony will change their ways down the line.
UPDATE: Super Smash Bros. Ultimate may not actually run on Unreal Engine 4. At the end of the Direct, it listed Unreal likely for Fortnite.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is the next game in the Smash Bros. series. Ultimate will feature every character in the franchise and they all have newer moves. New characters are coming, too. Some Battle Modes are also making a return.
the game runs on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine. Graphical upgrades have been made. It also seems to run at 60 FPS and 1080p, according to the Direct on YouTube. This makes the game look fantastic. In addition to graphics, there is a new main theme to the game.
You will be able to play super Smash Bros. Ultimate with a GameCube controller. Make sure to have the adaptor. Every amiibo will also work.
Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will release exclusively for Nintendo Switch. Pre-order today and pick up the game on December 7.
Fortnite was shown off during the Nintendo E3 Direct. The game releases later today at 10 am PT for Nintendo eShop. Download for free.
Super Mario Party is the next entry in the Mario Party series. This is the first Mario Party for Nintendo Switch. Get the game on October 5.
