The lights are on
One of the few indie titles announced for Xbox One is also making
its way to Sony's next-gen system.
After parading a few fans out donning boxy Creeper masks,
Sony announced that the PS4 will be receiving its own version of Minecraft.
Sony didn't share any details about the title other than its existence, but
Minecraft fans know what to expect by now. After the show, Minecraft's creator tweeted the following message, confirming the game's appearance on all three of Sony's platforms.
PS4, PS3 and Vita

PS4, PS3 and Vita
The announcement that Minecraft is coming to Sony's platforms is a surprising one; Microsoft has enjoyed console exclusivity of the popular voxel
sandbox series on the 360, and when the company announced an Xbox One version,
many assumed it had shored up next-gen exclusivity as well.
We'll have to wait for more information on both titles to
see how the Xbox One and PS4 versions of Minecraft compare, but the announcement is good news for prospective PS4 owners.

This is awesome news for all my PlayStation brethren that didn't get to play Minecraft. I loved the game on my PC and Xbox 360 so I'm glad more people can pick it up. Better late then never!
Minecraft seems like the perfect game for a handheld, I can't wait to get it on my Vita!
YAY! Now I can play it no matter which console I get.
The hype-train for Minecraft has died down a bit, but this is still good news for those who haven't played it on PC or 360.
Finally! I've only had a very brief time with this game and have wanted a chance to play it.
Now I might haft to get Minecraft again.
Put this on Wii u
I wonder if there will be a local multiplayer for ps vita.
Thank the stars! It's about time!
Life is worth living.
I'm finally exote about a game that I will actually play a lot on my Vita!
This is really good news for me since:
1. I don't have a gaming PC and too poor to build my own
2. I don't have, or want, an Xbox 360
3. I have Pocket Edition and wasted my money on it
