While many assumed that this was the reason Sony didn't want to take part in cross-platform play, hearing it from an actual employee is still eye-opening. They're starting a whole new thing, called PlayStation Hits.
Sony has had so many great titles released on the PlayStation 4 since its release in 2013, now the company is bringing users fantastic sales via PlayStation Hits.
As for which games you can expect to see on the PlayStation Hits, they include Bloodborne, Uncharted 4, The Last of Us Remastered, Ratchet and Clank, Yakuza 0, LittleBigPlanet 3, Metal Gear Solid V, Street Fighter V, and more. In stores, PlayStation Hits games will come in red packaging instead of the usual blue box so you can easily find them.
At retail, the games will feature a red case with a bright red banner towards the top designating the game as a PlayStation Hits title.
Sony's decision to restrict PlayStation 4 owners from playing "Fortnite" with gamers on the Nintendo Switch and Microsoft Xbox sparked an uproar in recent weeks.
Each PlayStation Hits title will only cost $20, or 1/3 the price of a new retail release. However, John Smedley, the former president of Sony Online Entertainment says it comes down to money.
While it would be nice for everyone to be able to play together, realistically, as the analyst puts it, you'd still need more online friends, which you'll be making with players on the same platform anyway. Whereas if you buy Fortnite initially for Xbox or PC, it will allow you to use your Epic account on Switch as well. "We believe being both developer-forward and fan-forward is in the best interest of the game", Nintendo of America head Reggie Fils-Aime told IGN.
