  • PlayStation 4 and Xbox One cross-platform play switched on in Fortnite, players report

PRE_-CISION-_ documented his evidence in a Reddit post, which contains Twitch clips and screenshots of his discoveries.

Does this mean we're finally getting cross-platform play between the two long-standing rivals?

Fortnite, the cooperative sandbox survival game from the developers of the Gears of War franchise and Bulletstorm, enabled cross-platform functionality across PlayStation 4 and Xbox One networks this past weekend, marking the first time users of Sony's hardware have ever been able to play and compete with Xbox players. A quick search confirmed the player in question was on a Xbox and not a PC.

"We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected", the spokesperson said. However, one game has already managed to enable cross-play between the two platforms. It also appears that PC and Xbox One players were once able to play together, but the functionality was removed in a previous update to the game. This may explain the incredible concurrent player numbers for the new Fortnite's Battle Royale mode.

Mr Portal is reported to have been killed on Monday, but the news of his death only broke last night (SAT). The site is located very close to the border with Hidalgo, which is notorious for drug-related homicides.

Over on Reddit, users noticed that Xbox Live gamertags were appearing in matches whilst playing the game on PS4. In that case, it's interesting that there hasn't been an official announcement - you'd think that after months of saying no and disappointing players, Sony would want to announce that cross play is possible in Fortnite. (Microsoft declined to comment for this article and Sony has not responded to a request for comment).

In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Sony head of global sales and marketing Jim Ryan described Sony's stance against cross-console play as "a commercial discussion between ourselves and our stakeholders" and "not a profound philosophical stance".
