That was one of the worst E3's I have seen in my entire life
Good to know. I don't have it loaded up on my PS4, but this is good to know going in if I ever wanted to play it on another console.
Good for you.
trolling for laughs or can they actually play together???
What if Switch had Mario, Zelda, Pokemon AND Smash at launch? It would probably break every sales record there is.
Yeah, but would leave the dry the rest of the year. No, this method was best, but that would have had amazing sales.
I believe they can, except with PSN because Sony are dicks about that.

'Fortnite' for Switch thankfully includes native voice chat
You won't require a phone app as of June 14th.
Fortnite for Switch includes a pleasant surprise: there's built-in voice chat. Where Splatoon 2 forces you to use Nintendo's not-so-elegant Switch Online mobile app for voice, Epic Games has confirmed that you can plug any old headset into the console's headphone jack to coordinate with your Fortnite squad. The feature isn't active as we write this, but it should turn on as of June 14th.
To some extent, Epic didn't have much choice. Where voice chat is mainly nice to have for Splatoon, it's practically essential with Fortnite team games -- and you really don't want to wade through software on another device (or tangle yourself in cables) just to give your squad a fighting chance at a Victory Royale. Switch Online isn't as clunky as it was on launch, but it still can't compete with chatting directly through the console.
The question is whether or not other games will embrace the concept. This does show that there's nothing technical holding back built-in voice chat on the Switch, though. It's just a matter of whether or not Nintendo is cool with the concept, and that appears to be the case so far.
Replying to @Wario64
Fortnite on Switch supports party chat through the headphone jack. Not through the Nintendo mobile app. Currently turned off but will turn on Thursday

Seriously? Nintendo may have dropped the ball but there were some great games shown
Shadows Die twice
Last of Us, Cyberpunk, and Death Standing all look like shit but there were some great games. Much better than last years e3
Then it would have hardly anything for a couple of years.
They probably could have done that, but spacing things out was a smarter move.
