The Playstation 4 edition of Minecraft is due this August, and new details have recently surfaced.
The PS4 edition will utilize the Dualshock 4’s touchpad. The touchpad will be used for menu navigation and crafting. Mojang also stated that the worlds will be “36 times bigger than the ones you might be used to on Playstation 3”.
Players will be able to upgrade their Playstation 3 versions for a cheap price. This only applies to those who have bought the game digitally and have transferred their PSN account from their PS3 to their PS4. Mojang added that they are hard at work trying to make this upgrade work for hard copies of the PS3 version of Minecraft, but it is proving difficult.
PS4’s Minecraft will release alongside the PS Vita and Xbox One versions of the game for $19.99.by
