In a tweet update Minecraft console developers 4J Studios announced that they are spending their time getting Minecraft: PS3 Edition ready for testing, and that other platforms and the next update for existing versions will come later.
This led to a fan asking if Minecraft would be a PS4 launch title and the studio replied by simply saying ‘no, it won’t be a launch title’.
4J have announced upcoming versions of Minecraft for PS3, PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita, so there’s much to be looked at once the PS4 version is ready.
And really, who can blame them? Most ‘old’ people that like Minecraft, like myself, have it on PC, while the console crowd more typically skews younger.
Console Minecraft is a hit with the tykes, those not savvy enough to know about the reduced map size, so getting it spick and span on cheaper, current generation hardware makes sense from a business perspective.
No one will buy an Xbox One for Minecraft. Will they?
