In the past Sony simply prevented you crossplaying between formats, but Fortnite has its own independent Epic account and simply registering your PS4 subsequently prevents you using it on Xbox or Switch - that means all your progress and purchases are then trapped on your PlayStation unless you start a second, PS4-free account.
There's also the fact that even though many are not happy with Sony right now, hardly anyone will want to ditch the friends list and games they've accumulated on PlayStation and switch to Xbox.
"With 79 million PS4s sold around the world and 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". Earlier today, the makers of the PS4 and PS4 Pro announced the PlayStation Hits Collection that will contain the system's top-selling games at a new price point of $19.99.
The PlayStation Hits range launches almost five years after the PS4; meanwhile, though no official announcement has been made, the PlayStation 5 is expected in 2020 or even 2019 according to current interpretations of tech manufacturer scheduling.

Each PlayStation Hits title will only cost $20, or 1/3 the price of a new retail release. PlayStation Hits will be featured on the PlayStation Store and will be putting game genres on sale from family friendly titles to blood-and-gore masterpieces.
The original PlayStation debuted in 1994 with a Greatest Hits range following in 1997, three years before the wildly successful PlayStation 2 arrived in 2000; the PS2's Greatest Hits launched in 2006. The former president of Daybreak Game Company (which used to be called Sony Online Entertainment) bluntly stated that the decision is one about money.
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. Nintendo is the exception, which its Nintendo Selectsline giving deep discounts to games like Super Mario 3D Land on 3DS and Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze on Wii U.
