Players hoped this was some kind of breakthrough deal between the two consoles, but it turned out to be an accident. Fortnite flipped a switch (or changed a line of code, or what have you) and things were back to being in walled gardens once more. The event makes it clear just how easy cross-console play would be between Xbox and PlayStation, but it remains out of reach mainly because Sony simply will not agree to it. Xbox is fully on board, open to crossplay with PC and Nintendo whenever possible, and Phil Spencer even chimed in to say he wished Fortnite had let PS4 crossplay continue.
But Sony? Good luck trying to sway them.
