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

Posted by Sammy Barker

Don't build up your hopes too much

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.

The next-gen release can be spotted on the television in the background, as a notification explains that the title sports autosave, and that you should not “turn off your PS4” when an icon is displayed. Meanwhile, the handheld version is easier to spot, as the company conveniently included a Vita in the image, running the game on its gigantic display. Hopefully this means that the conversions aren’t too far away, as we can’t wait to build pixelated bridges on the train. Are you holding out for these particular iterations of the indie smash?

@FullbringIchigo I bet it's not far away. They stealth released the PS3 version right before Christmas. I really think that Sony should consider releasing retail versions of the PS4, PS3, and Vita versions, though, as the Xbox 360 one has been incredibly successful.

Sly devils. This game will sell handsomely on PS Vita (it will) and PS4, hell it literally prints money anywhere.

I'll grab the PS4 version since I'd be able to play via remote play anyway. Looking forward to seeing any more system-specific features each one has

Having spent way too many hours on the PS3 version my kids would much rather get a PC version than either PS4 or Vita. The PS3 version almost seems like a demo of the PC version. The last update helped a bit, but my kid is pestering me for the game on the PC.

@DHW It would be nice if it was, but there's probably more money to be made if it isn't. I imagine a lot of people will end up buying it for all three systems, which makes me think it won't be cross-buy.

Well then I at least hope it's cross-play. DLC should be cross-buy though. Unless they're making console specific DLC since on PS3 we got Uncharted, Killzone, Resistance, Socom and Heavy Rain. Then I want some Second Son skins.

I never "got" why so many folks praise and play Minecraft. I tried it on PC for 10 minutes and got bored as hell. I guess it ain't for me! You guys enjoy it, I'll pass!

Minecraft shines in multiplayer really. It's also really good for people who also play the Sims quite often.

And the DualShock 3!
I'm not a very big fan of Minecraft, but my 4 year old little brother is. He plays the PS3 version non-stop and even streams Minecraft YouTube Let's Plays on his 2DS. I'll be picking up the Vita version for him when I babysit.
