Sony prevents Fortnite cross-play between PS4 and Switch

Nintendo Switch getting Netflix and You Tube apps suggest Best Buy 'error'

Netflix and You Tube could be coming to the Nintendo Switch

The introduction of a Switch version of the popular Battle Royale game has been something that fans have been keen to see for quite a while, particularly after the launch of the mobile version earlier this year.

Fortnite was made available on Nintendo Switch yesterday after it was officially announced at the E3 2018 Nintendo Direct event.

It has been less than a year since Epic Games released Fortnite and it has proven to be a major hit for the company. That arrived a few months later in September 2017.

Sony has already blocked cross-play of Fortnite with other gaming platforms such as the Xbox One, so it's no real surprise that it's been blocked for the Switch as well, but it sure is annoying.

Rumours of Fortnite on Switch have been swirling for a while, and last week it turned up on the Nintendo eShop update on the Switch.

If you're interested in playing Fortnite on Nintendo Switch, you won't be able to carry over your existing Epic Games account linked to PlayStation 4.

The biggest story immediately after launch centred on users being unable to use Epic accounts that have previously been associated with the PS4 version of the game.

This is a good get for Nintendo and Fortnite both (and a bad day for PUBG presumably).
