Minecraft for PS4 Has Gone Live
At long last, the PlayStation 4 port for Minecraft has finally been put up for sale after months of development, planning and delayed releases. 4JStudios, the development team responsible for the port, have been working on the PS4 and Xbox One ports before the consoles were even available to the public. However, Minecraft can now be picked up from the PSN store for $19.99.
If PS3 owners already have a copy of Minecraft on their PlayStation 3, they can 'upgrade' to the new PS4 version of Minecraft for just $4.99. Unfortunately, the promotion is not available for those that have purchased the physical copy of Minecraft for the PlayStation 3 in the past, however going forward all PS3 physical copies of Minecraft will now have pre-packaged codes that will players a $14.99 discount on the PS4 version of the game.
Minecraft has been planned for the Xbox One as well, however due to a few issues the release has been slightly delayed. The Xbox One version of Minecraft will be released this Friday, and the same $19.99 full price and $4.99 upgrade price will be available on the Xbox One too.
For those unaware, the new generation ports for Minecraft have a bunch of new features not supported in either the PS3 or Xbox 360 version, including worlds that are 36 times larger than the last-gen versions, better render distance and improved graphics.
If you're an avid Minecraft fan and enjoy playing the game on your console, the $4.99 upgrade price should be something you may want to consider, as the extra world space will definitely come in handy.
