That might well ruffle the feathers of some of existing Fortnite players. Yet Sony continues to refuse to allow PlayStation consoles to get in on the fun when it comes to playing with Microsoft or Nintendo consoles.

Over the a year ago, console hackers and modders have been chipping away at the Nintendo Switch, discovering what makes the console tick and how to work around its security.

Other games such as Fortnite and Rocket League also offer cross-play and players are able to play with friends on other systems. It challenges Sony to come out and play.
