Minecraft will punch away at the glossy walls of your PlayStation 4 and Vita within the next few months, Mojang has hinted. Writing on the PlayStation Blog, staffer Owen Hill explained that developer 4J Studios is aiming to complete work on the ports in “Q2/Q3” of this year, meaning that they should be available by the end of September. Platform holder Sony recently confirmed that both versions will be getting a boxed release.

There’s no word on cross-buy just yet, but the employee added that it will have news to share on that front in the near future. “I understand that the wait is frustrating, but we don’t want to make false promises,” he explained. Are you eager to upgrade your block building experience to Sony’s next-gen system, or is it the handheld edition that’s got you seeing pixels? Craft a castle in the comments section below.

Oh, that's unfortunate. I've been wanting to get the PS4 version, but I'll have to just get the PS3 one for now.

I've no interest in playing it on ps3 or ps4 so vita for me it is, they'll probably do a bundle with the new vita like they did with football manager, me thinks.

I wouldn't quite say September is in the next few months, but at least it is a rough date. I was really hoping for an earlier release. PS4 and Vita x2.

I truly hope this comes out within summer, it makes a good summer-game imho. Especially on Vita to carry around. Never played Minecraft before but it's about time I check it out right?

From what I've heard before, June (maybe July) seemed like good guesses from other sites since the beginning of 2014, and this seems like a confirmation of that time frame
