Almost everything in Fortnite is copied directly from PUBG, right down to the interface. Shameful.

Fortnite devs have a lot of nerve suing others for copyright infringement. Just because you developed a popular engine doesn't give you the right to steal other people's ideas.

I really hope Fortnite doesn't do too much damage to PUBG's player base when it arrives on XBOX One. I prefer realistic graphics over cell shading.

I think it was a smart move from the devs of Fortnite and they made it into their own thing since you can craft your own hideouts and whatnot.

I don't think they stole anything.

Play both games. They stole the entire gameplay design. For example, the way the energy barrier shrinks is identical to PUBG.

Ideas can't be copyrighted. Copyright protects expression, not the idea.

The expression was copied too. The energy barriers not only shrink in both games, they shrink using the exact same rules.

Everyone that has an Xbox and was waiting for pubg (that I know) have not jumped to fortnite and don't care About it's mode.

They still want pubg. I'm going to assume the majority of people that wanted the game feels that way too.

Both can exist.

That's an idea, not an expression. Was the exact same code used? Were graphical assets copied? That's what's at the heart of expression, not the idea of a shrinking barrier.

I have to agree what Fornite developers did is completely s***ty. You have the right to copy yeah but I don’t know, maybe be a little more ethical about it.🤔

PUBG also stole the idea from other games that came before it.
