Minecraft fans! We’re excited to finally tell you that the Minecraft PS4 Edition will be available on PlayStation Store this Thursday before 12pm Pacific for only $19.99!

For those looking for the ultimate Minecraft experience, the PS4 Edition will feature worlds 36 times bigger than the ones you might be used to on the PS3 system. Existing players will be able to import PS3 saves to the PS4 Edition, allowing them to continue work on their immense structure or delve even deeper towards the Nether.

Staying true to our promise, we wanted to make sure that anyone who previously bought the PS3 Edition (Disc or Digital) would be able to upgrade to PS4 Edition for a small fee.

Well, we’re happy to officially announce the upgrade option is available to any existing PS3 Edition owners for just $4.99!

    Great news!! How about Vita?

    • Brian Silva

      Mojang and 4J are working hard on it. We hope to update you soon.

  • Brink-2-Chaos

    Yippee skippy!

  • ForsakenCrown

    What about the Vita? Is it still in bug testing? If it is…it better be pretty damn perfect.

  • Coulda said something this morning while mojang is teasing us like were some mut dogs

  • That’s cool. I can’t wait till this page says “Grand Theft Auto 5” though.

  • DarkStar83x

    Awesome! Can’t wait!

  • So… If I don’t have PS3 saves on my PS4 I can’t upgrade for 5$ ???

    I don’t have my PS3 anymore, can’t transfer my save on the PS4. If I can’t upgrade, than **** that won’t buy it again.

  • Call out of work day!

  • If I upgrade tomorrow is the Vita version cross buy or is that only available to PS3 owners and not the PS4 owners?

  • Why does EU get it today earlier? D:

  • darkrebel08

    What about any DLC bought on the PS3? Will we have to purchase again for the PS4?

  • Well, at least this is good news. I can’t wait to see how it works out when I play it tomorrow. I’ve been waiting for it for a long time!

  • #9 If you got it on PS3, you get free upgrade for vita. 5$ upgrade are just for the PS4.

    #11 no they are cross-buy.

  • Why not 12am Pacific :/

  • ManjoumeThunder

    Will there be a physical copy for Vita (if same price, is cross buy?) and able to “upgrade” to Digital PS4?

  • Kojima-Yoshiyuki

    Will there be a physical edition? When will it ship? How do I get one of the psn shirts from the tester?

    • Brian Silva
      Brian Silva

      Yes there will be a physical version. More on when it will ship soon.

  • Does anyone know when the physical copy will be released?

  • komicturtle

    I wish I can edit my personal skin….


    Awesome! Will this be a midnight release or sometime during the afternoon?

  • What about Canada?

  • Neat. I play the PC version, but I may still give this a whirl on console. It would be a good game to lay and bed and listen to podcasts while playing.

  • If I buy the ps4 version, will I get the vita version at a discount?

    • Brian Silva
      Brian Silva

      No the upgrade only works from the PS3/Vita version to PS4.

  • When will the disk edition be released prior to tomorrow’s digital release?

    • Brian Silva
      Brian Silva

      We will have more information on when the disc version is coming soon.

  • crazyboi786_mani

    If i bought mc xbox edition could i exchange that one for ps4?

  • How does save import work ?

  • Wow, just wow. I can’t believe how poorly this announcement was handled. Why couldn’t 4J and Sony just wait until everything was ironed out completely to announce it was coming? Why announce to the world that the game was submitted for certification? Why not make this a surprise? This is the first time Sony really failed me.

  • So if i plan on getting the Vita one later, am I better off buying the PS3 version and then upgrading or can i buy the PS4 one and pay the 5$ later to upgrade (backwards there i guess) and get the vita one?

  • Why cant we have our version as upgraded as the Pc version is? =/

  • bigdaddykraven

    Why in the afternoon when everyone is working? Seems silly especially when everyone else in the world seems to have it already. Be honest, it was supposed to release earlier but there were complications and now it’ll be tomorrow because everyone is going to bed etc right?

  • If I but the PS3 Retail copy without owning a PS3 will I still be able to get the Vita for free and the PS4 for 4.99?

  • are the mods (like hunger game) available too ?

  • ragnorak251

    If I buy the physical ps3 copy, will I get the entitlement for the vita version?

  • I have the PS3 version, is there going to be an option to just purchase the PS4 version(not upgrade for $5) and still transfer my PS3 save games to the PS4 as I don’t want to miss out on the Vita cross buy. The Vita gets the shaft way to often it seems

    • Brian Silva
      Brian Silva

      Cross buy is only for the PS3/Vita versions. If you have the PS3 version you will be able to download the vita version when it is released.

  • why does uk get it way earlier than us….? i don’t understand the difference? with destiny so close to coming out i probably wont be playing it much

  • When will it be out in Australia nervously waiting .

  • I saw my question answered after I posted, but can’t figure out how to delete it! Sorry for the repetitive question >.<!

  • NightDrifter01

    @27 Because the PS4 isn’t strong enough to have a endless world like the PC. Update wise it’ll be caught up soon, Mojang just has to get the core game out first before working on in game updates.

    @30 No, you won’t see ANY mod’s because the PS4 One don’t have mod support. If you ever want mod’s stick with PC support since you’ll never get that on a PS4

  • How much will be the physician version of it?

  • So basically what you’re saying is if we buy the PS3 version (in order to get the Vita one) and then upgrade to PS4, it’s sort of like buying the Vita version for $4.99.

    That’s still a pretty good deal.

    Two questions

    1) When does the upgrade offer expire?

    2) Is this like the previous upgrade program where having the PS3 disc in your PS4 is required to play?

  • Will Minecraft for PS4 make me more attractive to the opposite sex? Should I buy 2 copies?

  • RainbowFlwrPowr

    I am guessing you can purchase just the PS4 edition?

  • cadbane1995

    @BrianSilva, this is fantasic news!! looking foward to playing this game on PS4! thanks for giving us this news!

  • Nootherswereleft

    Do trophies transfer?

  • Deathly_rYaN

    I asked others but I am still lost. If we currently own the PS3 copy and don’t upgrade until the Vita version is out. And when it is out, if we upgrade can it still be claimed free or do you have to have the PS3 version in order to get MC Vita free?

    • Brian Silva

      If you own the PS3 version you will be able to download the Vita version when it is released. Buying the PS4 upgrade will not change you owning the PS3 and Vita version.

  • dukespeedybeast


  • CrimsonNemo

    Is PS+ needed to play this online?
    Ima assume yes since it’s the PS4 version of the game.

  • Brian Silva

    If you own the PS3 version you will be able to download the vita version when it is released. Buying the PS4 upgrade will not change you owning the PS3 and Vita version.

  • Hurry up and release it already, MY BODY IS READY!!!

  • Hopefully out in Australia today ??

  • @36 the PS4 is powerful enough to handle an endless world but Sony has a Save size limit which restricts them from doing an endless world
