You can nearly understand Sony wanting to block cross-platform access with the Xbox.
Sony is taking a lot of criticism at the moment with regards to cross-play.
When attempting to log-in with a PS4-created Epic Games account on the Switch, they are met with this response: "This Fortnite account is associated with a platform which does not allow it to operate on Switch".
"We're always open to hearing what the PlayStation community is interested in to enhance their gaming experience", Sony told the BBC.

Sony chiefs are under pressure to respond to complaints about "cross-play" restrictions imposed on Fortnite.
Sony's stock may be taking a hit in the wake of crossplay problems with red-hot video game "Fortnite", but its fellow video game company and competitor Nintendo has taken the issues in stride. While it would absolutely prefer that folks talk about how much they're looking forward to those games, the general public is instead talking about one thing and one thing only: Fortnite.
"With. more than 80 million monthly active users on PlayStation Network, we've built a huge community of gamers who can play together on Fortnite and all online titles".
Of course, there are other, more reasonable explanations for not supporting cross-platform play on certain devices.
In fact, it makes the entire thing a bit of a farce, especially since most companies have made it a breeze to play Fortnite on every platform now out there.
"Fortnite is absolutely massive and it's only going to get bigger - it's about to come to Android - so Sony has got to start thinking about its closed-garden ecosystem". This was before anyone was making an Epic account for Fortnite and just a few months after the launch of the Switch, so I was primarily asking him about cross-platform multiplayer. "You have companies like mine that encourage cross-play and enable cross-play". Sony's policy is so ludicrously anti-consumer that even long-standing PlayStation fans might be tempted to move to another platform.
