Cross-platform play is something various game companies have experimented with over the past few years, and over the weekend Fortnite players on PS4 and Xbox One got to experience it as the result of a network issue.
The issue was first discovered by Reddit user “PRE_-CISION-_” who noticed something strange while playing Fortnite’s Battle Royale mode on his PS4. He was killed by a user named “zCypher Nine” a tag that would be impossible to create on PSN because it contained a space.
Intrigued by his discovery, PRE_-CISION-_ switched over to his Xbox One and did some digging, quickly discovering a user with the same name on Xbox Live, as well as a teammate that zCypher had been playing with. PRE_-CISION-_ documented his evidence in a Reddit post , which contains Twitch clips and screenshots of his discoveries.
