Sony's decision has nothing to do with software or hardware compatibility. It depends on where people shop in the game. "Fortnite" has its own game currency called V-Bucks, which players can purchase with real money to buy player upgrades.
If you bought V-Bucks on your Xbox, you buy new character skins on iOS or PC, these platforms would not be involved in the revenue. Tony fears that it would lose a lot of money if you Bucks bought elsewhere.
In May, "Fortnite" made $ 318 million in total revenue. According to gaming research firm SuperData, consoles generate most of the game's monthly revenue. Sony is the market leader in gaming and has sold more than 76 million consoles in .
But even with this hardware advantage, the plan to become the one-stop-shop for their community of "fortnite" players could do more harm than good. Sony's crossplay ban could isolate the gaming giants from the wider world of "Fortnite".
And that could ultimately reduce his profit.
