Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition, the demo, and all the DLC is now available for purchase through the PlayStation Store in North America, but you might not be able to get it quite yet.
Guys I know this is a bit off topic but does anyone know how certification for sony works, devovler digital emailed me back and duke nukem for vita/ps3 was sent in 3 months ago and still no word. Does anyone know if there's an email
Man! Always something else. Hopefully this is good to go soon!
Works fine for me!
PSN has only been a paid service 10months. Give it more time. If you guys want it to be perfect lets up the price to $60. give you 7 year old games on PS3's ps+ etc..... That way more money can go into the network. Also let sony close down a few first party studios like sucker punch and save money by buying timed exclusives and DLC.
@Badboyz09 - I was referring to Minecraft PS4, not to the PSN.
The network is having issues worldwide. :/ I hope it's working by the time I get off work.
My PS4 library is showing 0 games and I can't play with anyone. Minecraft clearly broke PSN. Wonder if Sony will be able handle Destiny's launch...
Haters gonna hate!
As of right this moment its working for me, I Had a weird moment where it acted like I wasnt connected and it came back in a minute, for a minute thought it was DDOS again... thankfully not. Its funny seeing even without the thing released in the USA til now, so many people livestreaming minecraft earlier. I have nothing against Minecraft but dear god is it popular and I'll be damned if I could tell why.
Because being creative with retro graphics is fun.
@CorndogBurglar I understand why people SAY they like it but that doesnt explain its popularity really. Its not that Im saying nobody is having fun with it but it isnt the first game where you build or have artistic freedom at all. Why does it have to be "retro" graphics? They actually arent retro graphics they're forced pixelated graphics, no games look like that and especially not on purpose. Its like the Quake 1 engine with SUb-doom level textures first of all and there is NO need for that other than just crap graphics for the sake of crap graphics and call them "Retro".... Its just a pet peeve not trying to insult anyones preferences.
I called this yesterday
I was able to buy the game..But it still shows me needing to purchase. It certainly didn't start downloading like it should have. Definitely made the purchase though, got the email saying I added funds and another email saying that I bought it. Hope they fix whatever issues they are having soon. Was hoping to surprise my son with one of his favorite games on the ps4 this afternoon. Maybe once I can download it I will get my pc back!! lol
The same happened to me. Since we purchased it we already own the license so hopefully everything goes smoothly.
It's fixed for me now so if it's not fixed for you, hopefully it will be soon.
Me too! My daughter is so excited for this. I was going to download it today for her as a surprise for when she wakes up tomorrow morning.
Psn Ofcourse! What a joke!
Sony really needs to improve their network. Seems like they are always having these problems.
I think its the millions of people trying to get the game at the same time, it happens to all big networks. I remember when Call of Duty 4's first DLC came out, XBL was so overwhelmed, I stayed up all night trying to download it with no success, after 6 hours I managed to confirm the purchase, but XBL stayed down until the afternoon. Millions of players clocked in at the same time. As I said before and say it again, all networks will encounter problems. @Neonridr I would get it myself, but my download was on 360, and they don't discount for that, also most of the users who jump boat from 360 to ps4 might want to play some minecraft again, and this new versions is supposedly 36 times bigger then 360/ps3. so why is that hard to believe?
Out of the 10 million PS4 users, how many do you think honestly are getting this game? millions?? that seems like a fair stretch.
I'm not knocking PSN, I just feel like they should be past this sort of thing by now. I understand things happen from time to time, but it seems to be more often on PSN.
I Dont think there was any preloading, other big releases have been preloading so you havent seen it hit the network this way. Its also possible that this is actually something Sony has done on purpose. they possibly could have limited the number of connections/connection requests per second after ther DDOS attacks and are still tweaking it, it would explain how the network would be denying connection during heavy load. We should all thank Minecraft fanatics would ironing this out.... (assuming thats actually whats happening)
@ Bohemian 23 I understand what you are saying, but the issues for the last couple of weeks have been a nightmare for most gaming services thanks to the group that should not be name, ddosing this networks. People always jump the gun at stuff like this and their inner fanboy comes out spewing blasphemy and stuff. Those who say that they never experience network outage in 360 are lying to themselves. I experience it 3 to 4 times a year, and the most annoying one for me was CoD4 dlc, since its the one I used as example because I really wanted to play it with a group of friends.
@ Mega, I hear what you're saying. I've had xbox live for years, and it's no where near perfect, when I had my PS3 it was during the great PSN hack. I guess I have to keep in mind, any negative news about either online network will always be blown out of proportion on this site.
Just gonna be 100% honest here, but Sony is now charging for their network, this much downtime is getting a bit out of hand. @HeWhoWalks, where did i mention Xbox Live in this? You seem a bit to aggressive in defending PSN against XBL when i made absolutely no mention of Xbox in my entire post.
I'm online right now. Exactly what "down time" are we talking about here? I should NEVER have problems on Xbox, going by your thinking, but alas, at times I do, especially when big games release. These things happen.
When I still had Xbox Live, I hadn't had an issue like this in years. Even when a major game like Black Ops II released, it stood up under the strain. If PSN can't even handle Minecraft, there is a problem. But I guess some people don't want to hear that. #HeWhoWalks The fact that the only major incident that you can remember on Xbox Live happened in 2007 proves my point. I never said XBL never had issues. I said it's been -years- since I've experienced any major problems. Meanwhile, my PS4 can't connect to PSN and I can't even load the PS store through my browser. And I'm not the only one.
I came from the 360 last gen to the PS4 this gen and I must say, since owning a PS4 at launch time I have noticed more PSN issues than I ever experienced on Live during my entire time with the 360. That being said, of course networks are going to have their issues and nothing is perfect...
@ jts1891: Nice spin, except that I never said it was the only incident. Again, your fingers are firmly in your ears., so there's no point in discussing it further with you. P.S. Speaking of people agreeing with you, seems even level-headed Xbox fans don't. Good for them, as it's not all about a "war" for many of us.
@ jts1891: I remember Call of Duty 4's issues with Xbox LIVE during Holiday 2007. For two weeks straight, I had problems joining matches, sending messages, and accessing the marketplace. It happens, but I guess that doesn't matter to you. If it's PSN, there's: "a problem". If it's Xbox, you put your fingers in your ears. @ Neonridr: Don't know. I've not noticed any serious network issue with PSN vs LIVE, especially not on PS4 (had more issues on PS3). To me, the issues seem largely exaggerated and people (not saying you, per se) come out the woodwork when things "seem bad". That's the only issue I have.
Hmm it really seems like they started charging for a service everyone claimed they would never charge for and haven't really put that extra money into network stability. Funny how suddenly when Sony unveils a premium online network everyone was suddenly accepting and justifying their subscription. The same cats doggin Xbox Live for having a premium model. Either way doesn't affect me not picking up Minecraft on PS4. Minecraft on Xbone. Terraria on PS4. Lol I love all the disagrees but in reality I'm on the side of Playstation owners!! Same s*** happens to XBL with big game releases maybe on a smaller scale but no network infrastructure is impenetrable. But still you pay for something that was once free with no noticeable differences. I love how defensive you all are the PS4 is perfect, BETTER?
@Sm00thNinja ,so is that the reason ms has copied and pasted stuff from psn and has made changes to certain things that need gold to work. psn has become the better of the 2 and no network even steam has not had there share of issues . x1 has had there share of problems. so there is no one side to online issues.
The dynamic has went both ways. Sony copied features from MS, and MS copied features from Sony. And PSN is not the 'better of the two networks'. I can't even remember the last time Xbox Live went down because of a technical issue or overload.
Yeeaaaaa your everything that's wrong with fanboys these days. Please continue to live in ur fantasy world were everyone has original ideas and nobody copies ideas from anyone. Trophies came before achievements amirite? 2 way street try to stop standing in traffic..
hey jts1891 here is one a couple of days ago http://downdetector.com/sta...
Butthurt because PSN isn't inferior anymore.
It really just comes down to Sony seeing how MS was getting extra money from their users and wanting to do the same. But I agree there seems to be no noticeable difference between the free network PS3 offered and the paid one PS4 requires you to have. Which makes it more evident that PS3 only offered free multiplayer to combat Xbox and their year head start. I also noticed a lot of sony fanboys proclaim they would never pay for a service that should be free but as soon as Sony made it required for PS4 only a few quietly expressed their dislike, the rest as usual accepted it and moved on. With a paid service PSN should not be going down as much as it has lately...especially coming off the DDoS attack.
^^ my sentiments exactly! You'll get a million disagrees for it but no Sony fanboy on earth can argue they once boasted a free online service and now they pay for the same quality service they recieved when it was free! But it's Sony they know what's best for us.
Every time something big happens on PSN the whole thing comes tumbling down.
