Minecraft on Xbox 720 and PS4 to leave PC, Xbox 360 version in the dust

With Microsoft expected to unveil its next-generation next Xbox console and Sony with PlayStation 4, it definitely is a bright future ahead for Minecraft. (Microsoft, Minecraft, PC, PS4, Sony, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Mincraft has a unique graphics style and thus it does not really have anything to improve upon. Unless they ditch java as the code base. Also, Mods!

Real time lighting and some physics would be nice,they have it on a mod for pc....would also be nice to support 64 players.

360 version maybe, but the PC? Its home? Not likely. We'll have to see though.

well that was random, the pc version is best because of controls and not being on a closed platform. the graphics are trivial.

I quite like the game but I think in stead of blocks they should make it into clay it would make the game a lot better i think

Who cares? MC was supposed to be the opposite of extreme graphics. Notch is a one hit wonder anyway and I do love MC.

Sooo it'll look even uglier? Because let's be honest mc is an ugly game even if it is suppose to have simple graphics (which there isn't anything wrong with that but how can you screw up simplicity).

I dunno if we'll see Minecraft on PS4, Minecraft sold really well on Xbox and money was probably exchanged to keep it off of PS3. I imagine it will be the same again, I hope it's on PS4 though

I love Minecraft but the game sorely needs an expansive story mode. Just be nice to be told what to do from time to time.

Have to agree...You can only kill so much zombies and place and smash so much bricks before you start to ask your self WHY THE F@#K AM I DOING THIS.

Give me a Zelda mixed with MineCraft and I will die a happy man - 3DDOT Heros was a nice attempt but lacked the creative tools.
Chevalier  +   1003d ago
I kind of doubt 3D dot heroes was meant to be compared to something like Minecraft, it was a zelda type rpg not a sandbox game, so don't see why your comparing the two.

Yes or no, will you buy minecraft on ps4 or Xbox 720? Hah
MysticStrummer  +   1003d ago
The only way I'd consider it is if I can interact with the PC version with my PS4, because my nephew is into MC, but I doubt I'd buy it unless it was very cheap.

Can't wait to play Minecrafft on my PS4.

More blocks with textures. How can Minecraft get any better if its main selling point isn't graphics? Not bashing Minecraft because I truly like its style of play and creativity but how can it get better?
1nsaint  +   1003d ago
With mods, with example optifine where you can turn anti aliasing, max render distance and other graphics options.

Besides there are tons of texture packs with different resolutions, some have 512 pixels per block. Default has 16 pixels of course it doesnt look great.

looking at what they have to work with they have done a nice job with the pixel art, reconizable items, making sure the textures look connected when placed next to each other.

Also the game is being made entirly by coding in java, no engine that creates the game for you

its not going to ps4. doesnt microsoft own minecraft?
Linsolv  +   1003d ago
... You just went full retard.

No. A thousand times no. Mojang owns Minecraft. You really think that Microsoft would make a Java-based game after they spent all their time and money trying to destroy Sun? You think they'd have a game fully compatible with Mac and Linux? Not a chance in hell. If not C++, then they'd use one of the many proprietary .NET languages they're so proud of, which are just like Java in pretty much every way, except for being natively supported only on Windows.
