The lights are on
Magic 2015: Duels of the Planeswalkers was announced today and is playable at PAX East. Accompanying the announcement is a short trailer telling players to "Hunt Bigger Game."
Players in Magic 2015 are pitted against Magic the Gathering’s deadliest hunter: Garruk Wildspeaker. Magic 2015 features the ability to customize decks, has new booster packs with downloadable content, and an improved deck builder.
Planeswalkers has typically appeared on a variety of platforms, including Sony's, though it is oddly not releasing on PlayStation 4 or PS3. Planeswalkers is releasing on Xbox One, 360, iPad, Android tablets through Google Play and the Amazon Marketplace, and on PC through Steam. Gamers can expect Magic 2015 to be available this summer, though release dates will vary for different platforms.
Magic 2015 is playable at booth #462 at PAX East this weekend.

Woot! I've been wondering if they were going to make a Magic game for the new consoles or console apparently.
I can't really get together and play with my friends anymore so this has been the next best thing for the last few years.
I'm a bit upset this isn't coming Sony side, but these games also having kept me that intrigued.
Does anyone remeber the old Magic PC game where you actually wandered around to find cards and fought enemies? When is that coming back?
Yes!. Although I've never played a Magic: The gathering game I've really gotten into card games recently and I'm always looking for new games to add to my new console. I've yet to find a quality card game on consoles. The new Yu Gi Oh MD is pretty good as my fist foray into Yu Gi Oh. Kind of surprised we're already getting a console card game but I'm not complaining. The only thing I ask for (asking for a long time) is animated battles or at least 3D models, please!
When I first saw this, I misread it as news for the next Witcher game (Big Hunt and stuff)
Cool, I always buy there games. I love Magic.
No Sony platforms!? That's truly odd. Here I was hoping for a PS Vita release for the first time.
For the fifth time, I'm in.
Haha copy and paste Bountiful Harvest's art in the beginning (not complaining I think it's awesome they did that).
You're telling me, I've bought 4 years of MTG games on PS3, and now they're not even bringing over the new one? What gives? That's crap.
Damn. I had hoped they would finally do commander with 2015.
