Mojang's global hit makes its way to Sony's next-gen platform

Minecraft will be released on PS4 when the system launches this holiday in North America and Europe.

SCEE president Jim Ryan revealed the news at Sony’s Gamescom’s press conference in Cologne.

No other details were given about the PS4 version at this time.

This announcement now means that Minecraft is coming to both Sony and Microsoft’s next generation platforms, as the game was confirmed to be headed to Xbox One at E3. Console exclusivity was previously with Xbox.

Originally developed for the PC, Minecraft is now available on at least six other platforms, including Mac, iOS, Android, Linux, Raspberry Pi and Xbox 360.
