One of the unwitting stories of E3 was Fortnite fans’ anger that the PS4 in particular did not support cross-platform play like the other platforms hosting the title.
At a Gamelab conference in Spain, Eurogamer asked Sony Computer Interactive America president and CEO Shawn Layden about the issue, and Layden had this to say:
“We’re hearing it. We’re looking at a lot of the possibilities. You can imagine that the circumstances around that affect a lot more than just one game. I’m confident we’ll get to a solution which will be understood and accepted by our gaming community, while at the same time supporting our business.”
The last part of Layden’s statement may be the key, according to former Sony Online CEO John Smedley, who recently said the whole situation was purely about money.
