So ive been playing a lot of fortnite with my kids on both ps4 and pc. We've had our account shared between the two platforms.
Not only can u do that, now you can play squads cross platform and it works seamlessly (been able to do this for a while, but had to jump through a few hoops, its now easy as). Im not aware of any other popular shooters that u can compete against/with conslols from the superior comfort of your pc!
Fortnite battle royale is free for consol and pc, micro transactions are only for cosmetic gear (outfits and dance moves) so they got that right too.
Its getting insanely popular now too.
Well worth a look.
Feel free to adding me, just hope u get spook jnr playing, coz i suck at it.
Also its coming to android/ios which is also cross platform i believe.
huge depth beneath the gimicks. it is extremely popular with the younger kids, maybe due to cartoon appearance?
huge variety in weapons, and the building adds depth to game play.
great map too.
Sub-15 year olds love it.
My 11yr old daughter has just started playing it on xbox.....seems a very console orientated game (even on PC).
runs great on PC and plays even better with a mouse.
It's crazy its taken the gaming world this long to get cross platform play going. It's still a fairly unique feature.

It's crazy its taken the gaming world this long to get cross platform play going. It's still a fairly unique feature.There quite a few games which have cross platform play. But generally anything FPS it doesn't happen. That's because you will always win with a mouse vs. a keypad. Its just fact. I prefer to play with PC only players because I feel like playing a console gamer is a bit like kicking the s*** out of a quadriplegic... which as much as I've tried to enjoy I've never quite gotten much out of it. Beating console gamers that is.
sigh, my kids us the ps controller when they play fortnite on pc :(
I've been playing abit of this, and i noticed the people who call it a game for kids havent really tried it in any depth. The game goes way beyond hiding in your little fort. The building gets quite intense when you're getting pushed, or you're pushing someone else's base.
Just watch some of Ninja's streams for an idea on how it looks at a pro level.
u should see some of the structures that go up in the 50 vs 50 games.
they are insane.
Just read that they are pulling in $10 million in micro-transactions per day.

Like what? I feel like true cross platform has only been around in the last 5 or so years. It's been (technically) possible for many many years imo.
Also cross platform can mean microsoft/sony not just console vs PC. What reasons are there for multiplatform multiplayer games not to have cross-platform play? Is it more difficult to achieve this with the current console/pc architecture?
I had a go of it the other night on Xbox one.
Not a fan of it.
Big amongst most age groups.
I know a few people who are also in their mid-late 20’s who are near addicted to it.
Personally I can’t see what all the hype is about, maybe because when I had a go, 3 times I jumped out of the aircraft and was killed instantly 🤣🤣🤣
gotta be able to build, else you die.
this building aspect sounds interesting
i'd better sus it out - can you dig down aswell as build up ?
turns out it's not really cross-platform:
Sony is blocking Fortnite cross-play and progression between the PlayStation 4 and Nintendo Switch, and Fortnite fans are furious.
Guess the year of cross-platform being the norm is yet to come. I have no idea why this is is so hard.
im still playing pc vs ps4
ive been playing linux vs windows, ITS CROSS PLATFORM BRO.
come on spook, get off it. you know what i mean.
ok, there was limitations form the start, ps4 cant play xbox either.
still its an improvment over what was offered before.
I think from memory they accidentally turned full cross-platform on at one point and XBox could play against PS4, but then they quickly turned it off again. Still, its obviously possible, just Sony are d****
