    Man, lots of announcements.

    Was hoping this would come to PS Vita, but I’m glad it’s finally coming to something PlayStation.

      I’d rather play this game at home anyways. Which I can do with any PS4 game thanks to remote-play. ^^

      edit: Oops! Nevermind! It’s coming (naively) to VITA and PS3 as well as PS4.

        W-what!? Is this real life =O It’s coming natively to Vita and PS3 too?! Ugh, can’t believe I missed the ending…

        • DesmaX

          It wasn’t said at the convention. The creator said it on his Twitter page

            Ah, thanks. I’m just watching the last part now as well. I’m pretty happy it’s making it to Vita, feels like I’ve been waiting for this announcement for awhile.

      If they made a deal with Sony, and Sony really want to push the thing I’d imagine yes

      edit: But Notch and Sony haven’t really said anything beyond that it’s coming to PS3/PS4/VITA (as of me writing this comment).

      • kuusou yume

        Yeah, I hope so, but I think Minecraft is too huge to even need to make it an incentive

        • jujubee88

          It would make Sony money, but if you do a cross-buy incentive it would just lead more people to other Playstation platforms and I think that’s a good risk.

          When you think about it, if you just have a PS3 for Minecraft you might be more inclined to get a VITA if you’ve already got the free version for download. You know, so you can play it on the go.

  • Elvick

    Yay, glad it’s coming to PS3 and Vita too. Wonder if it’ll hit retail for PS systems too.

    That’d certainly help sell some Vitas. (a Vita bundle of Minecraft and something else, LBP maybe?) would probably sell really well. Especially with dat price drop.

    • miyamoto

      Yup good thinking there mate. I am sure Sony is thinking the same thing too.

  • Bryce Blalex Douglas

    I coulda sworn at E3 Microsoft said they were the only place to find Minecraft on a console. Guess that’s one exclusive they just lost. Makes you wonder how many more they will lose.

    • Zackasaur

      PvZ Garden Warfare is already confirmed as timed, and devs have commented on the likelihood of Titanfall heading to PlayStation later (mind you, it’s already on PC as well).

      Microsoft says a lot of things.

  • OverlordZetta

    Can this be played offline?

    I know nothing about it except a lot of people love it and since its coming to Vita I might finally check it out.

      Yeah, you don’t need to be online.

  • miyamoto

    Yeah Baby!!!

    PS Vita is gonna SkyRocket!
