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 – well, if you read between the lines anyway.
Moving forward, all DLC will be cross-platform between the abovementioned systems, and all versions will run on dedicated servers so everyone can play together. But the absence of PlayStation platforms – the PS4 in particular – suggests that Sony doesn’t want any part of this cross-console future. It’ll be interesting to see its response in interviews.
