Fortnite "configuration error" allowed cross-play between Xbox One and PS4

The dream of Xbox One and PS4 online cross-play briefly became a reality this weekend when Epic Games mistakenly enabled owners of rival consoles to play against each other.

Reddit user and PS4 gamer "PRE_-CISION-_" posted the following gameplay video which shows hims being killed by "zCypher Nine", a username impossible to create on PSN, but that is a genuine gamertag on Xbox Live. As innocuous as this may appear to be, PRE_-CISION-_ correctly noted that PlayStation Network accounts can not have spaces in their name.

Fortnite already offers cross-platform play between PC, and PS4. For a survival shooter/fort defense game like Fortnite, playing with friends can mean the difference between victory and, well, carrying three AFK strangers to victory. Sony later ruled out cross-platform play with Minecraft on the Xbox One as well.

If you still don't believe this and are thinking the other player is on PC, then know that Fortnite doesn't utilize Xbox Live for PC multiplayer.

Somehow, players are managing to play cross-platform, with anyone they want; something the game apparently, isn't created to do. Was it a mistake?

The Fortnite community was quick to point out Microsoft and Sony's own stance on cross-network play - that it is absolutely, definitely not allowed.

In an email Epic said: "We had a configuration issue and it has now been corrected". While Microsoft is up for it, Sony remained cold to the prospect as of spring 2016.

"I've been keeping up on the news of crossplay and felt this was a game changer, the world could exist with both major console networks happily together", PRE_-CISION-_ said.
