PS4 Paid Items In Fortnite Aren’t Accessible On The Nintendo Switch

Nintendo has openly embraced the Fortnite hype after the company unveiled that the game is coming to the Nintendo Switch. Soon after announcing the fact, some players found themselves to be very disheartened by the fact that Nintendo Switch players can’t queue up with PlayStation 4 players. If that wasn’t disappointing enough, then the next issue will disappoint you.

Adding to that issue, recently players have started an outrage because their in-game purchased items from their PlayStation 4 consoles aren’t going to make their way onto the Nintendo Switch due to Sony’s restrictions.

Yeah this is also an issue with PS4/Xbox; it’s stupid I had to delink my Epic account from PS4 and make a separate new account to play on both PS4 and Xbox. I lost access to my Paragon stuff as a result (oh no).
