Sony clearly understands the importance of Minecraft, as it’s confirmed that the PlayStation 4 and Vita editions of the build-‘em-up will also receive a physical release. Yesterday, the company attached a May deploy date to the boxed version of the popular PlayStation 3 game, but it seems equally eager to get the next-gen versions of the title onto store shelves.

There’s no word on a release date for the upcoming editions, but series overlord Mojang stresses that they’re coming along well. Late last week, port house 4J Studios uploaded a photograph showing off the unreleased iterations of the brick laying game.
