    Fortnite BR on console needing/not needing xbox live + playstation plus to play

    I love Fortnite Battle Royale and I can’t wait to get the PvE but I am a little confused on why you have to have Xbox live to play Fortnite BR on Xbox one but on PS4 you don’t need PlayStation Plus. I get that it is an online game but why have it different for different consoles? I play on Xbox one and I am not defending Xbox but I think that if Epic Games are going to make it one thing on one console, why not make it the same for both consoles?

      Xbox wont shed a tear of u leave. But honestly choosing to leave because u cant play fortnite offline? Seriously? How do u think you're able to play with other players on fortnite? Through online. That's how. Just like u need to pay, to use the internet such as Xfinity wifi or Verizon fios internet. It's the same thing. U need an internet connection to use your Xbox One, as 98% of Xbox One games are digital copies. Meaning, u have to purchase them through the Microsoft xbox store. So stop throwing a fit, pay the $10/month for xbox live, or pay for 3 months at a time. Which is $25 for 3 months of xbox live gold membership. Which 3 months of gold membership is actually half the cost of what internet provider companies charge per month. Which is anywhere from $60/ month, up to $100/month.

        This has very little to do with Epic, contact Microsoft and ask them if the can make it so that fortnite plays with out xbox live... im PS4 but ive plus either way so makes no difference to me

          Because Microsoft and Xbox suck. Bailed on them after the 360 (well, pretty much bailed on Consoles). They require a lot of BS to play their console.

            You guys really need to learn more about your consoles. PS4 doesn't require you to have plus to access some of your internet features except for online playing, where as XBOX One requires Live to access some of the internet features. So EpicGames is using this as a way to have Fortnite BR be like you're playing Netflix This is not an EpicGames problem this is a Microsoft problem...Please learn more about your consoles before you come back and blame Fortnite.

              You literally just pay 100$ a year for Xbox gold, you get a FREE game every month, 75% or 50% off deals every half-month. And you can play any game you want. Doesn’t seem like a BS deal to me

                Its $60/yr to use Xbox Live. Not $100. Its $9.00/month or use the bundle live & pay $25 for 3 months or $60 for 12 months. It's never been $100. I've been with Xbox since 2008 & it's always been $60 for 12 months, which is $5/day. Now they have $10 for 1 month$25 for 3 months or $60 for 12 months.

              Actually PS4 gets the same deals and as well as 2+ free games every month. WE DON'T HAVE TO PAY FOR PS PLUS FOR F2P games lol. You were saying?

                  How much can I buy it for

                #13
                Because Fortnite is sucking PS4's balls. PS4 also has crossplay, and a free 1200 vbucks skin. Would I buy a PS4 for it though? No. PS4 has a UI that makes me want to barf. And the only reason anyone owned PS3's is because online is free, so idk why the hell people are buying PS4's.

                  For the people who are still confused its becuse xbox has different polices than sony on xbox all online play requires xbl but on psn they have a policy saying that the developer of the game has the choice to require ps+ or not so most free to play games and some game you buy can be played without ps+. (ex. Killing floor & dying light are a couple i know of) there is a reason i dont usualy play xbox tho i have one and this is one of them

                    For me this is kinda of like, buying a Ferrari and complaining it costs too much to put gas in it. You bought the 400 dollar system, and you buy 80 dollar games regularly... why cant you just buy xbox live? its like 60 dollars and comes along with many free games / discounts.

                    People pay 50 dollars a month on a cell phone bill, but cant pay 5 dollars a month for xbox live?
