Xbox and PlayStation Owners Enjoyed a Fleeting Moment of Crossplay

Fortnite quietly enables PS4 and Xbox One cross-platform play – report

Players of Fortnite, Epic Games' multiplayer survival game, have noticed that cross-platform play between Xbox One and PlayStation 4 may be activated. According to some reports, Windows and PS4 users have been playing with each other for a while, but this is the first time Xbox One owners have been reported to have joined the fun. What's more is that the Reddit user switched to his Xbox One to look up zCypher Nine on Xbox's network, only to find that he/she did indeed exist there.

This generation of consoles has left little to fight over with numerous gaming audience deciding on platform choice by loyalty, variety of exclusives or the platform that their friends are playing on - so why don't PlayStation and Microsoft play nicely and let us all play together via cross-platform? Enjoy while you can.

After this news came to light, many other threads started popping up on the official subReddit, confirming similar encounters. Sony later ruled out cross-platform play with Minecraft on the Xbox One as well.

Fortnite does not officially support cross-play. But since allowing cross-console play seems to be so easy that a company like Epic can do it by mistake, lots of players are now asking why the hell there are so many roadblocks to getting the feature.

"We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected."
(Microsoft declined to comment for this article and Sony has not responded to a request for comment).

Would enabling cross-play online be a smart move from Microsoft or Sony?

As evidence mounted, another example of an Xbox gamertag in a PS4 game popped up.
