Sony has been catching a lot of heat after E3 when many gamers discovered that they couldn't use their existing Fortnite account on other platforms if they used it to log onto their PS4

 

This locks away progress and (pretty expensive) skins even though the game uses a third-party account and is famous for its cross-platform playability

Once again, what works best for gamers isn't always what's ideal for a company's bottom line, and Sony definitely seems to be flexing its muscles on this

But popular opinion isn't on Sony's side, especially since it "won" the generation with a very public pro-consumer stance

Obviously, we're rooting for a future where playing games with your friends and loved ones is at easy, cheap, and seamless as possible

 

But for now we're just gonna hang back and let the forces of the free market sort itself out
