"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", a Sony representative told BBC News in response to the share drop.

Others, like "Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag", "Dragon Ball Xenoverse", two "Need for Speed" games and "Rayman Legends" pop up on the list of European launch titles, while "Battlefield 4", "Metal Gear Solid V: Definitive Edition" and "Yakuza Kiwami" make it into the North American roster; "Doom" is available in Europe and the USA on the PlayStation Hits label, though not yet in Canada. Head of Xbox Phil Spencer spoke about how he envisions a world where a parent can buy any console for their child and the not have to worry about whether they can play multi-platform games with their friends.

One thing the company is taking seriously however, is their game streaming service PlayStation Now (PS Now). It will be limited to PlayStation 4 titles for now, at least at first, but it will allow players to download titles they'd like to play later instead of having to stream them all.

The North American titles announced are: Bloodbourne, Drive Club, inFAMOUS Second Son, Killzone Shadow Fall, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, Yakuza Zero, Yakuza Kiwama, The Last of Us Remastered, Doom, Battlefield 4, Project Cars, Metal Gear Solid V, Ratchet & Clank, LittleBigPlanet 3 and Street Fighter V.

The PlayStation Hits promo is also available for Canadian gamers through the local PS Store site and several retailers based in the country.

Sony also says that the range is available both digitally through the PlayStation Store and physically via select retailers across the region. This means that players are unable to carry over Fortnite purchases made on the PlayStation 4 over to Switch, so you essentially have to start all over again.

The reason Sony won't allow crossplay on the PlayStation 4 console with its Microsoft and Nintendo rivals is simple, according to former Sony Online Entertainment president John Smedley. Let's face it, folks, despite the PR angles, no one makes products for the good of gaming or for the good of cinema etc.
