The lights are on
During E3 2013, Microsoft announced that the runaway hit Minecraft would be available on Xbox One. At Gamescom 2013 it was Sony's turn, announcing that Minecraft will be available on PS4, PS3, and Vita. These versions are under development at 4J Studios under the supervision and direction of the original developer Mojang. As lead developer of Minecraft, Jens Bergensten offers suggestions and collaborates with the new Minecraft development team but updating and enhancing the PC version is still his primary workload.

I've never played a Witcher game, but I'm really excited for this game. It's one of the few titles that look really next gen and I can't wait to play it on my ps4 when I eventually get it.
... I learned nothing.
