Minecraft


 

During yesterday’s E3 press conference, Microsoft revealed that Minecraft is becoming more accessible than ever, with new cross-platform play support across PCs, consoles, mobile devices, and even VR builds of the game. One major player was missing from the deal, though: Sony.

While Minecraft‘s new cross-play will work for Windows 10, Xbox devices, and even the Nintendo Switch, no PlayStation consoles will be supported. And, apparently, that’s all Sony’s fault.

According to Jez Corden from Windows Central, PlayStation “refused” to join in on the cross-play.

“Microsoft said it’s their hope for all modern versions to connect to each other,” Corden added in another comment. “But I got separate info that Sony refused.”

Should Sony change its mind, though, it seems that the invitation to join is still open.

“We can’t speak for Sony, but as we said, we would love to have our PlayStation 4 community join our Minecraft unification plans,” Minecraft‘s Aubrey Norris told GamesBeat.

Minecraft will be getting several other updates on consoles, with the Super Duper Graphics pack bringing improved shaders and 4K to the console versions of the game in a future update.
