Former head of Sony Online Entertainment, Joe Smedley, has claimed the Fortnite cross-play block is simply down to “money.”
In response to a video on the cross-play block by Kinda Funny’s Greg Miller, Smedley tweeted, “If we keep up the pressure, the problem goes away.” Smedley then went on to claim that, while he was at Sony, the reason for denying cross-play was stated as being financial.
btw when I was at Sony, the stated reason internally for this was money. They didn’t like someone buying something on an Xbox and it being used on a Playstation. simple as that. dumb reason, but there it is.
