Minecraft Cross-Platform Play Not Coming to PS4 Because Sony 'Refused'


Microsoft' E3 press conference saw an important announcement for Minecraft with the new "Better Together Update".

Support for cross-platform play is slated to roll out this summer as a free update to the mobile and VR versions of Minecraft.

These cross-platform capabilities are happening because the Switch and Xbox One versions of Minecraft are being converted to Bedrock Engine which is a software foundation that powers Windows 10, VR and Pocket Editions.

Coming this fall, Microsoft is launching a DLC for Minecraft which it's calling, rather cleverly, the "Super Duper Graphics Pack" for Minecraft. While there are plenty of mods out there that can augment the style or look of the game, its official, vanilla version has extolled the virtues of blocky, low-level graphics that make it possible just about any system to play it. For example, if you buy the Greek Mythology pack on Nintendo Switch, you'll also own it on the mobile, Xbox One and Windows 10 Editions too.

Microsoft has announced at the E3 2017 presentation that Minecraft is getting a major makeover.

The other update comes in the form of unlimited land to explore.

If players own Minecraft for mobile or VR, they'll get an update for the summer.

According to the Verge, the Better Together update also brings some exciting news for players who play Minecraft across different devices.

It looks like for the second time ever, players will be able to use different consoles to t+play the same game, together and at the same time.

Updates to the Java version of Minecraft will now also be found on Bedrock. Meanwhile, users will be receiving a free update in the near future which will bring this change to their devices.

This includes the most basic, obvious and awesome servers at launch: Mineplex, inPVP, Lifeboat, and Cubecraft. User created content and servers are on the way which will allow a whole new kind of content for a variety of platforms. If Realms gives Minecraft players a private space to play in with their friends, servers go bigger and more public. The developers have done a special version of the game that runs in 4K resolution, demonstrates a wider range of colors with improved lighting, shadows and water effects.
