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."

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.

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.

It was all retro and like Legos, but, then a bunch of kids online called me a griefer and kicked me.
