Nintendo and Xbox are totally BFFs now thanks to Minecraft

While there was much excitement as "Fortnite" players started downloading and cross-playing with their friends, there was a lot of backlash for Sony, who chose not to allow cross-platform play. Releasing on July 16th, this gives players looking to get a PS4, or maybe even a second one, to enjoy the Save the World mode that is the only part of Fortnite not usually free.

So if you are someone who loves your Nintendo Switch, this is not for you as the other issues include screen burning too.

PlayStation 4 Fortnite players became disgusted last week when they discovered that their Epic Games accounts would not work with the recently released Nintendo Switch version of the game.

Sony has ignored pressure from the public and from game makers regarding opening the PS4 to cross-platform play. While Nintendo and Microsoft are working together to advertize Fortnite cross-play on their consoles, Sony have gone a different route in incentivizing players to stick with Sony by introducing a brand-new skin not available on any other console. "Previous highs were May 2016 for PlayStation 4, May 2015 for Xbox One, and May 2017 for Switch". As for Sony, it shows no signs of backing down from its cross-play grinchiness.

Neymar needs more time - Brazil coach
BBC pundit Chris Sutton was critical of Neymar , saying something needed to be done to end the culture of diving in football. Coutinho said Brazil "deserved the win", after the Selecao were held to a 1-1 draw with Switzerland in their opening match.

It's a frustrating situation for gamers, and it's not a great look for Sony. Essentially, if an innocent customer buys a used copy of a Nintendo Switch game, there is no way for them to know whether or not the game they're buying has been used illegally in the past.

On top of that, Minecraft on Nintendo Switch just got an update today that allows you to unlock Xbox achievements on Nintendo Switch. If Microsoft can lock down game streaming to the Nintendo Switch, Xbox might be the only way you can experience some of those "AAA" games on Nintendo's svelte handheld platform. It highlights the issue.
