While games like Spider-Man: Miles Morales and Hogwarts Legacy stole the show, Fortnite appealed to the gaming community much more. iFireMonkey listed some points in his video explaining the main aspects that are going to be different in PS5. 

Why PlayStation showed Fortnite in their showcase?

The latest introduction of NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 comes as an advantage for all PC players. Priced at $699, it looks like the best option for all PC players, as it adds several new graphical features in-game. 

Thus, PlayStation has found the perfect way to counter this with their new PS5. Considering the last 12 months, Fortnite has seen a massive rise in the number of console players. 

Even competitive tournaments are dominated by them. This gave way to the controller Vs KBM debate. Hence, it is entirely plausible that PS4 players will want to shift to a new console to get that added advantage their PC competitors have. 

This was the prime reason why Sony decided to show a clip of Fortnite during their showcase.

That way, the game would become a pillar of popular culture. They have already started this with the introduction of Party Royale and live events. 

Similarly, the significant collaborations with DC, Marvel, and John Wick have shown what possibilities the future holds. With artists and musicians collaborations, Fortnite is luring in fans and gamers alike. 

This subtle plan is one of the best the gaming world has ever witnessed. When we talk about era-defining games like CS:GO, Call Of Duty, Halo, which also has a competitive realm, Fortnite is firmly establishing itself there.
