Certainly feels that way though there's no mention of PS4 in the commercial...

Waiting for the Fortnite cross-play commercial.

The "will not abduct your EG account" commercial.

Sony in the background: "AUTISTIC SCREECHING"


Jranation (on 21 June 2018)

Oh damn! This is getting hot!

Sony doesn't care about this tbh, the ps4 version will sell more as usual

Some might avoid playing Fortnite on ps4 as a result of this though.

Maybes it not about the sales? Maybe its about granting what the players wants?

Really doubt the PS4 version is selling more than the pc and mobile versions...

MasterThief (on 21 June 2018)

its kind of funny because. Sony has sold more PS4s than Xbox or Switch combined. so

Gonna take a wild guess and say you're not going to consider including Windows 10 and Mobile in this argument at any point yeah?

Sure, they have. But is it the best decision for the gamers - or the best for Sony? Well, loss of reputation is also bad for Sony. Sony has invested heavily over years to build a great brand image for Playstation. Stuff like this is damaging that.

Conveniently ignoring that the PS4 is also 5x older than the Switch.
