Here's Your Very First Look at Minecraft on the PS4 and Vita

Push Square, via Twitter: "Minecraft port house 4J Studios is known for being a little sneaky with its Twitter account, and the Scotland-based outfit has engaged in a spot of tomfoolery today. Posting about an Xbox Live Arcade sale featuring Perfect Dark – which it also worked on – the company wrote that it now has a “reason” to open a bottle of stashed rum, which it included a picture of. However, look closely at the photograph and you’ll get a first glimpse at both the PlayStation 4 and Vita versions of Mojang’s seminal construction game." (Minecraft, PS Vita, PS4)

It's about time they release the PS4 version. I don't understand why Mojang doesn't hire more people, they make tons of cash every month?!
Sethry101  +   260d ago
Zod because then they would actually have to split the cash up a bit, cant do that! :P

@zod18 4jstudios is developing the PS4 version, so Mojang expanding their employee base wouldn't help speed up development.

Never played it, pricing on consoles seems expensive, my kids play it on PC and it looks fun for their age as they can build up stuff and so on but nothing for me, I like rather deeper gaming experiences...if I want to contribute to someone making money I rather put it on studios like Bungie or ND, their games leaves some kind of memories that stays with you through the years instead of someone making money from the same stuff. Minecraft seems to be a one-time hit and good for him.

Maybe I'm just old :-) I like the games that have a start and an end, like when I watched Anime on TV when I was a kid, characters grew up, died, etc Anime had character development and the story an end rather that keep going forever.

LOL, Minecraft is supposed to be pixelated, as it is intentional. 1080p and 60fps on next gen consoles will not make a difference.

Thats right lol

its all about pixels
Farsendor1  +   260d ago
LordMe was probably joking, i havent played anything of minecraft on any system and i know its supposed to look like that lol.
Whore_Mouth  +   260d ago
It adds more area to explore and mine.

Look at the pic. Perfect??? LOL wow. Fanboys never disappoint!!!!
Riderz1337  +   260d ago
What did you expect? Uncharted level graphics for a Minecraft game?
Hellsvacancy  +   260d ago
Sarcasm dude, you don't have to be a genius to know when one is being sarcastic

I assume he is anyway
Lord_Sloth  +   260d ago
He's joking.

I hope they hurry and release the next gen version I'm dying to start playing it again. Ever since I've went next gen it's turned into a waiting game.
Whore_Mouth  +   260d ago
Looks like no one got it.
Jaqen_Hghar  +   260d ago
A man accidentally gave you a downvote but made up for it with a "Funny" bubble. A man apologizes
Lord_Sloth  +   260d ago
You get bubbles just for being faceless.
xX-StolenSoul-Xx  +   260d ago
Already bought the game on Pc, Ps3, and 360 I don't want to go for a 4th time. Hopefully they have a free upgrade to ps3-ps4
mixelon  +   260d ago
I have it on PC, android, ios, 360 and PS3.. And i'm probably going to get it on vita and PS4 too - providing the ps4 version takes advantage of the better spec and isn't just a port of the previous gen version. :)
wannabe gamer  +   260d ago
how could it take advantage of better specs when it requires so little to run it at max potential already. if the versions already out there do not perform that well then id say something is very wrong.
mixelon  +   259d ago
@wannabe - MC needs RAM and storage.. Only the PC version for example has limitless world sizes and a long draw distance. The new console versions need to be closer to the PC version than the ps3 version.

Also, the fps on PS360 is awful in 4-way split screen.
vongruetz  +   260d ago
Is this confirmation that the Vita port is going to be a port of the console version and not a port of Minecraft PE? I hope so.
WeAreLegion  +   260d ago
It will be. Though I think I'd prefer Pocket Edition right now. They're working on much bigger worlds and the cart rails act like actual cart rails on Pocket Edition.
dodgemoose  +   260d ago
PE controls are awful in my opinion. Will much prefer it with the Vita's physical button layout.

Ninjatogo  +   260d ago
They confirmed it would be the console version months ago.
randomass171  +   260d ago
At this point I think any game on both PS3 and Vita are straight up ports of each other.
WeAreLegion  +   260d ago
Can't wait. I hope the PS4 version looks better than the PS3 version. They're using the same code for all consoles, but I hope they improved the draw distance at least.

If you need to see proof that they're using the same code, just look it up on their Twitter account. I'm on a phone here. Lol.
Mikefizzled  +   260d ago
Comparing 360 to the Xbox One edition announce trailer it looks a lot crisper and definitely improved draw distance. Obviously thats not the response you asked for but I hope its helpful.
WeAreLegion  +   260d ago
It is. Thanks!
Mikefizzled  +   260d ago
I do like how its mostly nothing to do with Minecraft. And the fact that they ported a bunch of other games before Minecraft. Like Perfect Dark.
CocoWolfie  +   260d ago
those bastards! :o I love how theres just a vita there with it playing, and a tv showing the playstation 4 symbol ;)
Aleithian  +   260d ago
Am I the only one who's more interested in the rum?
Beetey  +   260d ago
On a gaming website? Ya, probably.
frostypants  +   260d ago
Nah. Games were invented to give us something to do while we drink.

Massacred  +   260d ago
Good eye. Vita is perfect fit for this game. No lie.
dodgemoose  +   260d ago
Completely agree. It's a great game to pick up and play for 20 minutes. Hopefully there's some kind of cross-save feature between Vita/PS3/PS4 - not sure how it would work though since world sizes differ.
Massacred  +   260d ago
Buddy. . .you hit the nail on the head. Let's go tweet to Sony reps, Mojang and 4J about them implementing these features.
ZodTheRipper  +   260d ago
Yes I probably would do the same lol
It sucks though, Minecraft could be even bigger and more innovative if they would put more effort in it. They certainly have the talent and resources but obviously not the ambition ...meanwhile games Terraria, Starbound, Rust or The Forest are pushing for innovation.
ZodTheRipper  +   260d ago
Oh that was meant @Sethry101, I hate mobile N4G :D
frostypants  +   260d ago
The problem with Minecraft is that technically it is wildly inefficient. Not sure how much else they can do with it.
Mac420  +   260d ago
Those games have more because you can do less, shit Terraria is a joke IMO. An half those games wouldn't even exsisy without Minecraft being a success.
randomass171  +   260d ago
Man, I am so happy this is finally happening. I hope they can give Wii U owners as much faith as they're giving Vita as well. I think Vita and Wii U are both perfect platforms for this title. :D
anesthesique  +   260d ago
Gotta love a developer who knows how to tease and leave everyone satisfied with it. Really looking forward to Minecraft for next gen.
Hazmat13  +   260d ago
this needs to come out now! MORE MINECRAFT!!!!!!!!!
HRoach616  +   260d ago
GOD I can't wait to re play this on my ps4. I rocked it pretty hard on my 360. I've been fiending to jump back in for the past few months. But I'm waiting for this version so I don't burn myself out. I hope it's soon. They always just drop games or updates without warning. So hopefully soon it will be a late birthday surprise for me!

Any one have any guesses when it will be released? I'd offer a guess but I'm too stoked to make a reasonable one.

Don't understand the love for minecraft, tried it on PC and 360 and was bored in minutes.
I think I just prefer story/objective driven games now and minecraft didn't offer that.

Hope this is cross buy on ps3/ps4/vita
