  • I’ll admit, I kinda laughed. I guess Microsoft’s exclusivity ran out.

    • Kaitsu

      Don’t forget PS4 just obtained Twitch too, recently. Haha.

      • GGear0323

        yeah, though i wonder how Ustream feels about that.

  • endril

    Guys, um. I already have Minecraft.

    • D H

      That’s good… I don’t. Other gamers on Sony systems and stuck with less than adequate computers probably don’t either. So, you know. Good for you?

    • SlickRoach

      You probably have it for PC but now you can have Minecraft EVERYWHERE! On your home console(s), on your iPhone, on your wristwatch, and even your N-Gage*!

      *coming soon

    The Golden PSX that the Sony team sent Notch paid off!

  • D H

    Notch just sent a tweet to the official PlayStation twitter saying it’s for PS4, PS3 and Vita, actually…

  • theman_714

    Notch confirmed that it’s also for the Vita and the PS3!

    I find it funny how MS made a big deal out of it having Minecraft.
    And then Sony does this and goes “oh yeah, we are releasing it too, moving on”.
    Oh man, just saying if there is actually a reason to get an xbone? I really am curious about this.

  • wat_wat

    This is great for the 5 people that haven’t played Minecraft yet. I’ll try it on Vita I guess

  • DesmaX
  • NintendoPSX

    Woo! This is good for me personally because the last gripe (Other than KI3) was that I wouldn’t be able to play Minecraft on console anymore (Because F Xbox One). Now that PS4 has it, I’m good to go.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    up next Nintendo then Notch will be sipping lemonade with enderman

  • Onizuka Gio Hikari

    I have it on PC and my android but I was really waiting for this!! I think it looks good on xbox so this is great news

  • Jake_Indiman

    Yay!!! More platforms for my kids to play Minecraft on!

  • Dokuro

    I hope its the full version.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Can’t wait for the Vita version. Won’t have to worry about my crap laptop not being able to properly play it.

    And I can multiplayer finally!!!! :D

    I hope Minecraft will support mods on PS4
