What's Happened to the PS4 Version of Minecraft?

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.

Asked whether the game would be ready for the Japanese giant’s next generation system in time for launch, the studio unsurprisingly responded that it wouldn't. It also added that it doesn’t have a release date in mind for the company's current console, meaning that you could be waiting a while yet for any Minecraft action on a PlayStation machine. It’s a shame that this is seemingly further away than we expected, but as we’ve been reminded all year long, greatness awaits.

Still waiting for Terraria on PS Vita!
Also, I think they're waiting for a more opportune moment to release Minecraft on all the PS systems. There's SO MANY games out right now that would lower their sales.

Disappointing for sure, but I'll be so busy with my other launch titles Minecraft will be a nice surprise once it finally releases.

4J Studios ported The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion to PS3, right? They did a good job on that, shame Bethesda didn't let them port the two fallout games and Skyrim...

This can be a really bad thing. If people get sick of minecraft, then they can loose a lot of money on people waiting for the PS4 version. I would have bought this day one when I get me PS4, but if I have to wait, then I may just be bored of the game and skip it. Really sucks that they are holding back. Bad call if you ask me.
