Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition News
Ever wondered what’s new in the world of Minecraft? Quite a lot, it turns out. Speaking over the weekend as part of fan convention Minecraft Live 2020, developer Mojang announced a gigantic Caves & Cliffs update for the iconic craft-‘em-up, which is set to release next summer. This is an absolutely gigantic expansion, hence the hefty...
Build virtually anything
Earlier this month, Sony revealed that Minecraft would be getting PlayStation VR support. The blocky survival sandbox will be fully playable in virtual reality using a DualShock 4 controller, letting you get a feel for how big the structures you make really are. The game has been playable in VR on PC for a while now, but...
The first of Sony's PlayStation VR spotlight announcements has arrived, and it's actually a rather cool one. The uber-popular Minecraft will be receiving full PSVR support later this month as part of a free PlayStation 4 update. This virtual reality support extends to the entire game, meaning it's not its own separate mod
We need more teeth
The new Jurassic World movie is back in production after a brief coronavirus-induced shooting hiatus, but while you wait for the film to release, Minecraft should help to satiate your hunger for dinosaur-themed media. To be fair, this update looks absolutely fantastic, whisking you away to an idyllic island where life simply finds...
You mine, and you craft
We’re listing the ten Games of the Decade. These are the ten PlayStation titles released over the past ten years that we believe have left a historic mark on the industry. Whether it’s Destiny's impact on the Games as a Service space or Journey’s innovative approach to online connectivity, these are the releases that...
Update: Now officially confirmed
Update (9/12/2019): Minecraft: Bedrock Edition has been officially confirmed for PS4. This means you'll be able to play cross-platform with those using other hardware. It also grants access to the Minecraft Marketplace, where you can find new skins, worlds, and other bits and bobs. Anyone who already owns Minecraft...
Cross-play conversation re-opened
Fortnite wasn’t the first game to start the cross-play conversation: it was actually Minecraft. You may remember Microsoft announcing the Better Together update for every system but the PlayStation 4, because back then the Japanese giant wasn’t playing ball. It’s slowly opening up its do
We expected it sooner
A Final Fantasy XV skin pack for Minecraft? But of course. The pack's available on the PlayStation Store now, coming in at £2.49 in the UK and $4.55 in North America. Square Enix's adventure joins the likes of Mass Effect and Skyrim when it comes to Minecraft add-ons. The more the merrier, we suppose. Given Final Fantasy XV's...
But it ain't happening yet
Sony has blocked Microsoft from releasing Minecraft’s big ‘Better Together’ update on the PlayStation 4, and this story’s probably going to rumble on until it changes its mind – or everyone gets tired of talking about it. The patch aims to unite communities across consoles, but as announced at E3 2017, the...
Minecraft goes cross-console on everything but PS4
Microsoft is unifying pretty much all versions of Minecraft – except, of course, the PlayStation editions. While the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PC, smartphone, and even virtual reality versions will all be updated to amalgamate the experience, it seems Sony has said no to such an endeavour –...
Mind the ghouls
Wow, it's been a while since we wrote about Minecraft, but its newly announced Fallout skin pack looks too cool to ignore. We spotted a ton of locations from the open world titles in the trailer that we've embedded above, including a rather blocky replica of the Prydwen from Fallout 4. The DLC is coming to the console versions of...
The empire strikes block
Sony's billing the PlayStation 4 as the system for Star Wars, so it would be a bit embarrassing if it didn't get Luke Skywalker and crew into the PlayStation versions of Minecraft. Fortunately, through a collaboration with "Disney Interactive, LucasFilm, and Microsoft" – seriously, this is written on the PlayStation Blog...
Mmmm, pixelated blocks
Fans of The Simpsons may well be drooling like a starved Homer right about now, with the announcement that Minecraft's getting a rather large set of character skins based on the animated comedy. The DLC pack will be bringing its yellowy charm to PlayStation platforms this week, and it'll set you back £3.29. While the show...
Block to the future
Minecraft's getting two new DLC packs this week on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and Vita. Alongside the not-that-interesting Pattern Texture Pack, which applies soft colours and knitted animals to your blocky world, you'll also be able to jet into space with the Mass Effect Mash-Up Pack. As its name suggests, this will coat the...
DLC pack is soaring onto Sony platforms
Ah, Skyrim. A setting full of glorious natural beauty, strange beasts, hardy people, plenty of mead, and more technical bugs than you can imagine. It's a virtual world that we're sure many readers will remember with fondness, but how would you like to explore those cold Northern reaches all over again on...
It was only a matter of time before a crafty fan remade Hideo Kojima's harrowing P.T. demo in Minecraft, and, as usual, the enterprising community has outdone itself. All of your favourite moments are represented here: the famous looping hallway, the embarrassingly dirty bathroom, and, of course, the lingering sense that downloading this...
The console war may be painted as a fierce battleground on the web, but in reality, that’s not the case at all. We already know that Xbox chief Phil Spencer has a good relationship with many of PlayStation’s more popular executives – and that mutual respect runs both ways. In fact, Sony Worldwide Studios president Shuhei...
Business as usual
Microsoft may have built a $2.5 billion brick wall around the Minecraft franchise, but it seems that there are no changes to Sony’s plans, as it’s announced that a retail version of the game’s recently released PlayStation 4 Edition will deploy on 3rd October in Europe and 7th October in North America. The physical outing...
Redmond firm confirms $2.5 billion acquisition
The console war is about to get really weird, as Xbox chief Phil Spencer has pledged that Minecraft will continue to exist on PlayStation platforms – despite Microsoft purchasing maker Mojang for $2.5 billion today. “Gaming is the top activity across devices,” he
Minecraft’s future on PlayStation platforms may be uncertain now that Microsoft’s circling developer Mojang like a pack of wolves, but there’ll be no confusion over how to unlock the Platinum Trophy in Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition thanks to our awesome guide. As mentioned in
Good job they finished the PS4 version
Minecraft has already proven that it’s a pixelated license to print money, and Microsoft apparently wants the lucrative brand under its umbrella. A report on the Wall Street Journal states that the Redmond-based firm is in talks to purchase Mojang, the organisation behind the bricklaying game. According to...
Our good friends over at Family Gamer TV have been kind enough to send over their videos of Minecraft running on the PlayStation 4 and Vita. The game finally released yesterday on Sony's newest console. If you've been wondering about how Mojang's mega popular title performs, take a look at the seven minute video that we've...
Build it higher
Minecraft may be one of the biggest video game properties of the last decade, but it certainly took its time in coming to PlayStation platforms. Today marks its release on the PlayStation 4, and with its arrival, questions have begun popping up all over the web as Sony-only gamers search for answers regarding the blocky adventure. If...
Well, the ordeal is finally over — Minecraft PlayStation 4 Edition is available right now on the European PlayStation Store, while it's promised for release on the North American store at some point today. As you may already know, yesterday's store update's apparent lack of Mojang's title had many in an uproar after it was all but...
Can you dig it
Rejoice, European block lovers, for today is finally the day that Minecraft digs its way onto the PlayStation 4. The title — barring another last minute delay — should emerge on the PlayStation Store after its usual weekly update. The good news comes via Twitter, where PlayStation France confirmed that develop
Second time lucky
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition unceremoniously failed certification the first time around, but 4J Studios will be hoping that everything’s alright on the night at its second attempt. The British developer – which has handled all of the popular title’s console ports – announced on Twitter overnight that the game
There and block again
Evergreen sandbox adventure Minecraft was expected to come out this month on the PlayStation 4, but earlier today, the studio in charge of porting the smash hit announced on Twitter that the game had failed quality testing. "Sony found some issues we have to fix in their final test of Minecraft PS4," 4J Studios wrote, before...
Search for sailors all over again
It’s funny how you can remember your way around familiar locations even if you haven’t been there for years. We spent so many hours in Shenmue’s eighties recreation of Yokosuka on the Dreamcast that we know every crevice of this incredible Minecraft replica. It’s been built using a modified edition of the PC...
Build me up, buttercup
There are more than a few familiar faces in this brand new trailer for Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition. The next-gen blockbuster – which is due out in August – shows Kratos, Ellie, Ratchet, and the Journeyer from, er, Journey buccaneering in Mojang’s blocky world, and uncovering a number of PlayStation themed artifacts...
Plus a load of details including cross-buy
Miners rejoice! Minecraft's arrival on the PlayStation 4 and Vita has been given a slightly less vague release date. Mojang has confirmed that the dig-'em-up will be tunnelling onto the two platforms in August, so you've only got a couple of months to wait before you're able to slaughter harmless sheep on...
Like putting on a pair of glasses
Mojang’s cube cuffing blockbuster Minecraft will boast a greater draw distance on the PlayStation 4, port house 4J Studios has revealed. The next-gen iteration of the outrageously popular indie release will allow you to see much further than its PlayStation 3 counterpart, making various vistas look fuller as a...
Sweet new textures coming to PS3
We already know that Minecraft’s basic building blocks are in place on the PlayStation 4 and Vita, after port house 4J Studios posted a picture of both versions of the game in action. However, the UK-based outfit – which works in conjunction with creator Mojang to convert the indie smash to consoles – has since...
Build me up
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 yea
Can you dig it?
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
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...
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
