For almost two days, Sony had stayed silent about the growing anger over Fortnite accounts that were locked out of playing on the Nintendo Switch due to use on the PlayStation 4. Now the company has finally issued a statement, but it says so little that it‘s practically useless for fans who were hoping Sony would listen to their complaints. 

Here‘s what happened: Accounts that have been played on the Nintendo Switch likewise seem to be locked out of the PlayStation 4. Sony never warned players that they could be locked out of using their accounts on future consoles due to playing Fortnite on the PlayStation 4. After the discovery, the company‘s social media account was bombarded with complaints about the situation.

The nine biggest announcements from Nintendo’s E3 2018 presentation

  The nine biggest announcements from Nintendo’s E3 2018 presentation Nintendo choose to play it safe with this year’s E3 keynote, focusing more on soon to be released titles that people will actually be able to play in the coming months like Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, Super Mario Party, and Pokémon: Let’s Go! rather than offering updates on no-shows announced last year like Metroid Prime 4. If you missed the presentation, though, here’s everything you’ll need to catch up. Super Smash Bros. Ultimate will have ever Smash fighter everThe obvious star of the show during Nintendo’s E3 showcase is Super Smash Bros. Ultimate, which will feature a massive roster of over 60 fighters comprising every single Smash Bros.

If Sony is truly open to feedback from the PlayStation community, then it will be paying close attention to the many replies to every single one of its recent tweets from its official Sony and PlayStation Twitter accounts. They are littered with responses condemning the company for holding Fortnite accounts

However, Sony and Activision did announce that 2015’s Call of Duty: Black Ops 3 would be available to subscribers of the PlayStation Plus service for the next month. Sony ’ s response to Fortnite controversy is embarrassing .

“We’re always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience,” Sony said in a statement to the BBC. ”With ... more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we’ve built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles.”

What’s missing so far is any acknowledgement of the issue itself, or even a hint that Sony is working to improve the account lockout situation for its angry players.

”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,” Sony stated. ”We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point,”

Why Fortnite battles between Switch and PS4 players ain't happening

And last night, The Simpsons finally addressed this ongoing controversy about Apu' s character. In "No Good Read Goes Unpunished," one storyline involves Lisa and Marge #TheSimpsons completely toothless response to @harikondabolu #TheProblemWithApu about the racist character Apu

Surprisingly, said controversy has nothing to do with the gameplay mechanic that has you ripping the clothes off of your enemies. In response to one of their statements, another Pitter character refers to them as a “trap,” a term that carries more FORTNITE BATTLE ROYALE: Eight Tips For Beginners.

The statement reads like a tactic, Sony hoping to avoid admitting there’s a problem long enough for things to calm down and players to forget why they’re so upset. While Sony pats itself on the back for user numbers, it fails to give any information on how it will improve the situation for the large number of upset fans. This isn’t a problem that’s going to go away anytime soon.

Epic Games has declined to comment on the story. Nintendo has told Polygon there’s not much it can do about how other platforms treat Fortnite accounts.

“In fairness, there are three different things going on,” Reggie Fils-Aime, president and chief operating officer of Nintendo of America, told Polygon in an interview at E3 2018. ”You have companies like mine that encourage cross-play and enable cross-play. You have a developer and content owner that wants cross-play and is encouraging cross play, and then you have the other platform holders and what it is that they do. And when it comes to other platform holders, as much as you have influence on other platform holders, I don’t. And that’s a decision that each of them are making, and some are supporting cross play and some are not.”
