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.

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.
