It looks as though Sony are preparing to announce a Fortnite themed PS4 bundle, despite the current predicament that the company has found itself in around cross-play arrangements. Oh, the irony.
If the leak is to be believed, and it was on the official PlayStation Italy site so it’s highly likely, then the new bundle will launch whilst the controversy is ongoing. But all publicity’s good publicity, right?
If you haven’t heard, Fortnite players on the PS4 will find their accounts locked to that console. Forever. That’s despite their opponents at Xbox taking the opposite attitude and letting their users loose on the Switch. That’s three different consoles in one paragraph; are you keeping up?
Not to mention the ‘We’re in this together’ video Microsoft and Nintendo released to announce the latest Minecraft update, which is another game Sony refuses to share.
The bundle will apparently come with a 500GB PS4 slim console, 500 V-Bucks, Save the World mode, and an exclusive skin. It is expected to launch on July 16th, which means if it is a thing, we’ll soon hear about it.
It’s hard to see how Sony can push this after all of the backlash, and surely if players have the choice then they’ll buy it on the Xbox. But if you look at it conversely, then there’s never been a better time to sell it. After all, it’s a game we’re all talking about, for good and for bad. Keep your eyes peeled for more news.
