My kids love it. It is pretty silly at times though and the shooting/targeting is crap... But its not bad for a free game.

It's all the rage with the kids, in particular with one well-known NBA player's son who spends a significant amount of time on it. Epic Games is starting an Esports Tournament with $100million in prize money so it has put the community into a frenzy.

Never would've imagined someone getting paid THAT kind of cheddar to play video games. Back in the day, there was Thresh who got a Ferrari and $100,000 in prizes/sponsorship for winning at Quake, but this is on another level. Probably only the beginning.

Yeah I remember Thresh. Them's were the days. He went on to start Firingsquad.com IIRC. These streamers make all their money from subscribers and donations. It's absolutely wild to me. Granted a fraction of a fraction make real money (like athletes) and the rest pretty much do it for fun.

I remember when Twitch first came out and after a few years Amazon paid $1B for it. With the current direction it's headed they got an absolute steal of a deal.

You can cross play it over any gaming device besides Playstation 4. That's another reason why it's huge.

To my knowledge, no. PS4 players only play against one another. And they can't join players playing on any other device.

My son plays on our PS4 and my daughter is able to log in on her iPhone and they can play together.

You're right. I misunderstood what cross play meant.
Quote:
Sony is facing a growing backlash from PlayStation 4 fans who are angry they can’t log into the Nintendo Switch version of the game. Thousands of Fortnite fans have been reacting angrily since news broke earlier this week that you can’t use a Fortnite account that’s been used on the PS4 with the Nintendo Switch. Sony is blocking Epic Games from allowing cross-play and progression sync between the PS4 and Nintendo Switch or Xbox One. This means that any progress, skins, and purchases can’t be shared between PS4 and Nintendo Switch or Xbox One.

because its a shooter game. even though its not in first person. its cartoonish, it has dancing and music in it, its super quick to play and complete, if you play for hours upon hours you can get really good at it and abuse most people. and some stars have played it too. so everyone in this generation will be all over it. but now that they are all over it. anyone that cares about being into whats hot now. will try it out and realize its easy to get into(not necessarily get good at but jump into, have some fun, lose and start another one.)

Yeah I love playing with my nephews and neices. Gaming is passing me by...used to compete and play religiously. Now I'm getting carried by 10 year olds.

I'm playing it. The game is massive.

I usually play old video games from the 2000's era. I can't stand for microtransaction.

If there's ever an emergency in the cockpit on one of my flights I think I might be able to manage flying a 737 for a solid 2 minutes before sending us into a vertical tailspin thanks to the hours I've put into this wonderful franchise.
