Minecraft PS3 PS Vita Sony 1

Minecraft’s final update – which includes support for the Nightmare Before Christmas mash-up pack – has been released on the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita, effectively ending support for those versions of the game. Joining the ageing Sony systems are the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii U, which have also been binned by developer 4J Studios.

“The older generation of consoles now make up less than five per cent of our active players,” said series owner Microsoft earlier in the year, “so we've made the difficult decision to focus our efforts to support players where they play Minecraft the most.” This, of course, includes the PlayStation 4, although by dragging its heels on cross-play, even that version is now lagging behind its peers.
