What's Happened to the PS4 Version of Minecraft?

Push Square: "Sony announced all the way back at GamesCom that Minecraft would deploy on the PlayStation 4 within the system’s launch window, but that’s looking somewhat unlikely at this point in time. 4J Studios, the British-based developer responsible for porting the release, has confirmed that it’s currently starting to test the PlayStation 3 version of the indie smash hit, with other platforms to follow later." (Minecraft, PS4)

Agreed. They said Day 1. It's all being done by the same studio that did the 360 version. Wonder if they've got to keep quiet due to a contract with MS, cause we haven't heard much about the PS3 version either.

Thank god. The market of people that this would affect (parents) simply do not have the console preordered and won't be getting one until at least February at the earliest now.
I feel relived for retail workers worldwide :) It won't stop the onslaught of clueless parents looking for PS4s in December time but it will lessen it.

Maybe it needs some ESRAM?

I think it's pretty simple to deduce.
1) As a developer/publisher, you want to get the game out on the system with the most users. That would be the PS3.

2) The PS4 and Xbox One versions are supposed to support bigger worlds, more players in multiplayer, etc whereas the PS3 and PS Vita versions will pretty much be identical to the Xbox 360 edition.

3) 4J Studios is a relatively small studio so I was surprised when it was announced they would be supporting five console platforms for the game. I'm also not surprised by this delay.

I really don't care about minecraft.

but I saw a 10 year old boy come into gamestop asking for minecraft so I guess some people do want to play it.

for those people, I hope it comes out on all the platforms.

LOL nobody really noticed this until now. I mean, not hate on this gorgeous looking game, but Minecraft just looks puny compared to Killzone and the other big games. I wish Minecraft could tone down the graphics, because its making Killzone and NBA2K14 look bad.

Rather play it on my PC. At least they let us use mods for endless amount of fun. After trying it on Xbox, I can say it is very underwhelming if you played PC first.

It can be a little late.

Maybe they're BLOCKING Sony from sharing any news. 8)

Minecraft on PC is the best with a mouse to control. You can also download a ton of free mods and texture packs. I'm partial to BDCraft :)
ninjagoat  +   254d ago
Good things come to those that wait ;). Thats what i say in the mean time I'll play it on my PC and enjoy all the rest off my PS4 games. Atm I'm on a massive build on feed the Beast.

Stupid, but I'm still getting it. Doesn't mean I'm not disappointed though.
