Minecraft has been confirmed by Sony Computer Entertainment to be a launch title for the Sony PlayStation 4. The Sony PS4 is due to release this coming November.
November 15th has been confirmed to be the launch date of the Sony PS4, and Sony is gearing up to have one heck of a launch line-up when the console drops in retail stores.
The Minecraft developer Mojang confirmed along with Sony at their GamesCom 2013 press conference that Minecraft would be available on the Sony PS4 in download form on launch day.
There will be, according to the news release, multiple versions of the popular game ready for the PlayStation brand of consoles on that day.
Sony PS3 gamers will also get a version that will be available for download over the PlayStation Network, and a Sony PS Vita version is also in development for the handheld.
This comes as Microsoft also confirmed an Xbox One edition of Minecraft in development.
The Xbox One edition of Minecraft is not expected though until 2014 according to all reports thus far.
This means that the Sony PS4 will be the first next-gen Minecraft experience offered to gamers.
