Nintendo talks about Netflix on Switch, loot boxes and more

Specifically, people are talking about how you can't use your Epic Games account in the freshly-launched Nintendo Switch version if you already used it to play Fortnite on PS4. The announcement came during Nintendo's E3 presentation where the company showcased a stream of back-to-back announcements that included the Fortnite release.

"We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience", the company said. "We have nothing further to add beyond this at this point".

Fire evacuations lifted in San Juan Co. Wednesday
Winds out of the west are expected to gust to 25 miles per hour . "We pray that nobody goes up there and starts a fire", she said. Officials placed the Mesa Cortina and Wildernest neighborhoods under the mandatory evacuation Tuesday, KUSA-TV reported.

Gamers were already unable to share a Fortnite account between Microsoft and Sony's platforms. NPD analyst Mat Piscatella notes on Twitter that 40 percent of Switch owners in the United States also own a PS4, meaning this isn't likely to be a small-scale problem among the tens of millions of Fortnite players. The same is also true in reverse; a Fortnite account created on or connected to the Switch can't be accessed on the PS4 version of the game. Well, despite the backlash from its wide player base, Sony doesn't appear to be budging on its stance.

Many fans are understandably upset.

May survives fresh Brexit vote but rebels up the pressure
Leading rebel Dominic Grieve said he hoped a compromise would be found, but if not, "this isn't the end of the matter". Nick Ferrari told a Conservative "rebel" that her job is to get on with delivering the Brexit at the people voted for.

The "free-to-play" nature of Fortnite has been a major factor in its success, with players being able to purchase a collection of in-game cosmetic items such as outfits, emotes, and more, if they so choose, to customize their character. Any progression they've made in the game, like completing challenges, won't transfer as well. Even if games do support cross-play, like Rocket League, the PS4 is kept apart from the Switch and Xbox.

This is not the first time Sony has refused to work with Microsoft and Nintendo to support cross-play. Last year, when Microsoft chose to unite all versions of "Minecraft" in what it called the Better Together Update, Sony blocked it on the PS4 and said it was to protect younger gamers. "If people want to go buy someone else's console and play games there, great, as long as we're all leaning in to how do we make this business for everybody as vibrant as possible". "Exposing what in many cases are children to external influences we have no ability to manage or look after, it's something we have to think about very carefully".
