• Sony’s CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, confirmed that the PlayStation 4 will not be getting cross-platform play.
  • As to why, he said, in regards to Fortnite, that the PlayStation 4 is the best place to play and provides the best experience for users.

Sony has been getting a lot of flack from the gaming community in regards to their stance on cross-platform play for the PlayStation 4. Awhile back, the company claimed that they would look into the matter but no official statements had been released until now.

During a conference in Berlin, Sony’s CEO, Kenichiro Yoshida, was asked about the issue and had this to say in regards to cross-platform play for Fortnite:

“On cross-platform, our way of thinking is always that PlayStation is the best place to play. Fortnite, I believe, partnered with PlayStation 4 is the best experience for users, that’s our belief,” he said. “But actually, we already opened some games as cross-platform with PC and some others, so we decide based on what is the best user experience. That is our way of thinking for cross-platform.”

Yoshida also went on to explain that competition is good for the industry:

“I think competition is always good. Healthy, fair competition is always good for the industry and growth, I think competition with Nintendo and Xbox is a healthy situation.”

A huge fan of anime and video games and just an all around geek in general. First got into this lifestyle around seven yeas ago and now I don't think I could live without it. I'm also very much enamored with the techniques and skills behind great games and animation and one day hope to work in the field of Game Design myself.
