Everyone who's ever wanted to play Minecraft probably already has.

I'm hoping you can transfer mods from the PC.
AceofStaves  +   739d ago
Not me.

Edit: lol@disagrees. I haven't played 'Minecraft' before. I was waiting for a release on a PS console, and I'm glad I waited. Carry on disagreeing, though. It's hilarious.

You right. It is nice but like you said those who wanted to play Minecraft probably already have
PSVita  +   739d ago
I haven't but I've wanted too for the past few years
AngelicIceDiamond  +   739d ago
@panda no need to downplay it. Mincraft should be available on most platforms to begin with.
showtimefolks  +   739d ago

3 of us one for me and 2 for my friends so your statement about everyone who's wanted it got it is 100% untrue

very excited november 15th baby

i haven't but I thought this was exclusive to MS or is it that MS has a special version...I am a little confused...
user7402931  +   739d ago
yeah, like im sure all the people who wanted to play planetside 2 have /S
noctis_lumia  +   739d ago
not me buddy waited for sony version and guess what its happening either u like it or not

"everyone who´s ever wanted to play Minecraft probably already has."

well not everyone have or want an xbox.
Patrick  +   739d ago
Not everyone, My son and I have almost bought it on PC a few times but I dont really let him play on PC much yet so I have chosen to wait. So, this will thrill him... as it does me. PS4 day one.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   739d ago
definitely not. Minecraft is not a graphically heavy story driven game people play and eventually forget about. its replay value is endless. people will be playing minecraft for to come regardless of how much the game has aged.

a great acquisition for Sony no matter how much you try and downplay it.
Blastoise  +   739d ago
Everyone said that when it was on PC. Then it came to Xbox and sold millions
WorldGamer  +   739d ago

Wow, someone seems bitter. Surprising to see you in a console forum, aren't you all about PC?

Why not look at this as just another option for PS4 owners. I have never played this game, so I guess that fact alone makes your statement incorrect.
Pandamobile  +   739d ago
Well I don't know what you guys were waiting for, cus it's been on PC, Mac, iPhone, Android and XBL for years now.

It's sort of past its prime now, but whatever floats your collective boats, I guess.

@above lol, I'm hardly bitter. I had just figuted that everyone and their grandma had played Minecraft by now.

People said the same thing when it was announced for Xbox 360. 8 million sales later, are you feeling salty?
ZodTheRipper  +   739d ago
dr_zyaz are you retarded? lol
What makes you think that the same people who downplayed it are the same ones who are looking forward to it now?

I'm one of those that are not excited about this announcement since I'm done with Minecraft already but your statement is just ridiculous.

Why comment if you have nothing good or constructive to say. Or maybe you're just bitter cause the number of PC exclusive titles continue to dwindle with PS4 and Xbone.

If I'm wrong, then you shoulda kept your mouth shut son!
Pandamobile  +   739d ago
How is my comment any different than any other the other comments on this site?

"PC exclusive titles continue to dwindle with PS4 and Xbone."

What is this, 2002? I don't give a rat's ass about "exclusivity". Pretty much every big game that isn't made by the platform maker themselves is probably going to be multiplatform. I put my time into Minecraft in 2010-2011 when it was actually exciting and relevant. Do you really think I'm pissed off that Minecraft is coming to more platforms in 2013? I was just remarking that after almost 20 million units of Minecraft sold, I had just assumed that everyone who had ever had an interest in it had played it already.

Day 1 baby!
RedHawkX  +   739d ago
yep and all the indie games show today are ps4 and vita cross buy and cross play as well as being on the ps4 and vita first exclusively.

since the ps4 is 399 it only makes since to get the ps4 at launch especially when it comes out first and not only do you get 14 days ps+ right out of the box but ps+ is cheaper then xbl and has tons of free games and discounts. you cant lose with the ps4 its amazing some still think the xbox one is the way to go lol.
pedrof93  +   739d ago
Twitch and Minecraft coming to Ps4 is liking taking anything better that the ONE had to offer.

user7402931  +   739d ago
it will.
Convas  +   739d ago
Minecraft for EVERYONE!

Let's not blow this out of proportion though, the game is now out of PC, Xbox 360, Mobile, and soon Xbox One and Playstation 4.

RedHawkX  +   739d ago
now people have no reason to get the xbox one version of this game so no need for an xbox one for those who prefer to play minecraft on consoles. just get the superior ps4 version with cross play, etc
Dobgamers  +   739d ago
no, on xbox one it will support microsoft's cloud dedicated servers

So, with the cloud you'll have little to no latency and more (64 or 128 players)

I don't think anyone is getting the Xbox One because of Minecraft to be honest. But I was surprised that it found it's way on Playstation, I always thought it will stay Xbox exclusive.
GraveLord  +   739d ago
This is huge news. 8million sales on Xbox is a lot. Sony basically "stole" one of Microsofts exclusives.
Snookies12  +   739d ago
I'm still hoping for a standalone Vita version. Although we'll still have remote play if nothing else. :]
user7402931  +   739d ago
cross play, so vita will have it.
ForgivenZombie  +   739d ago
I believe they said it was coming to all of sony's systems.

I must say I'm a Xbox one fanboy. But I'm falling in love with the ps4. I must choose one for release date and one down the road
ElementX  +   739d ago
How can you be an Xbox One fanboy if it's not released and you haven't even touched the console yet?
stage88  +   739d ago
Huge kick in Microsofts goolies.
Nice job Sony.
JBSleek  +   739d ago
How is Sony the last platform to get the game yet you Sony praised?
KonsoruMasuta  +   739d ago
Well, technically, there is one platform that hasn't gotten Minecraft yet..... I won't name anything though.

How? MS has gotten a crap ton of sells from Minecraft.

I don't see them being particularly disappointed here.
Godmars290  +   739d ago
The thing is they're not going to get them anymore. They aren't going to have the advantage of saying that theirs is the only console people can get it on. Even if they still manage to sell more copies of the game, it is no longer a reason - no matter how slim - to buy the XB1.

Kind of the perfect example of how MS have devalued the term "exclusivity". Reduced it to business deals rather than hardware, which then exposes their inability as a 1st party dev and publisher.

Finally! I've been waiting for this for a while now, and yes you can play Minecraft on PC and phones, but it just makes it all the more convenient now to play the game, Thanks Sony, about time.
Madara97  +   739d ago
Check and mate Microsoft. GAME OVER!
drsfinest72  +   739d ago
Game over? Definitely not. Good news? Definitely true
Convas  +   739d ago
You mean besides the fact that the game has been on PC your YEARS now?
waltercross  +   739d ago
Though the game was on PC for years, It'll still sell hella well on the PS3/Vita/PS4. It's Minecraft!. My Son loves it and though I have it on my PC I'll buy it for the PS3 to since I use my PC Allot.

drsfinest72  +   739d ago
I suggest the pc version over console version anyday. But it's addicting either way! Lol
Soldierone  +   739d ago
I want to play it with my GF too, so I don't want to buy two copies. plus it doesn't run on a Chromebook which is what my GF has.
Sizzon  +   739d ago
Awesome :D

I play it on PC sometimes, but having it on PS4 is gonna be great!
Caleb_H  +   739d ago
And now all the xbots come out the woodwork and say, "why would you get it on anything but pc?".
