It's likely that Minecraft will be able to meet its August release window on PS4 after it failed Sony's certification tests. Addict Gaming 's now back to the fixing board at 4J Studios. The team will need to submit the game to be certified before it is released.
4J's been busy fixing bugs and issues throughout the month, and not just for the PS4 version but in the coming Xbox One and Vita releases too. We reached out to the studio to confirm the delay and find out if it would affect the PS4 version only or other platforms. The three ports are scheduled to launch this month.
Sony discovered a few issues that we need to fix during their final test of #MinecraftPS4:( We're fixing, but we'll have to repeat the process.
- 4J Studios (@4JStudios) August 20, 2014 When they do hit, the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Mojang's game will cost $20 on digital storefronts. Owners of downloaded Xbox 360 and PS3 versions will be allowed to upgrade to Xbox One and PS4 respectively for $5 . This offer will last for at least one year after the date of release. The new versions will provide larger worlds and a greater draw distance than previous console releases.
The Vita version is cross-buyable with PS3. This means that those who bought Minecraft on the console will get the handheld port free of charge, whereas new buyers will be able to unlock the game on Vita and PS3. Similar to other ports, the price to grind your pickaxe on Vita is $20.
