If you're a player of Fortnite on the PS4 you should just resign yourself to the fact that Sony isn't going to let you use the same Fortnite account on another platform. They are continuing their policy of keeping that garden walled off and no matter what you do you'll have to make a separate Fortnite account on your Switch or Xbox. Seems like a strange stance to take if you ask me since the game is F2P. Anyway, could this be the straw that breaks the camel's back since this is the biggest F2P game out there? I'm not going to hold my breath. That's likely of little solace to PS4 players who want to take the game on the go with their Switch and who received no previous warning that playing on Sony's system would effectively hold their account hostage to that console for all time. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella notes on Twitter that 40 percent of Switch owners in the US also own a PS4, meaning this isn't likely to be a small-scale problem among the tens of millions of Fortnite players.
