Video: Minecraft on PS4, New PlayStation 4 Trailer Revealed

50°
6w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill made available a new PlayStation 4 video trailer today from E3 2014 which reveals Minecraft on PS4.

To quote: Hello! Owen from Mojang here! We make Minecraft. In the wake of this week's glitzy press conference, we thought it would be cool to talk a bit more about our blocky, buildy, crafty game.

Minecraft on PS4 will feature worlds 36 times bigger than the ones you might be used to on PS3. Existing players will be able to import PS3 saves to the PS4 version, allowing them to continue work on an immense structure or delve even deeper towards the Nether.

Making old saves compatible with the newer versions of the game was priority for Mojang and our trusted developer chums at 4J. We value the loyalty of PlayStation fans who bought Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition last year, and want to make things as simple as possible for any early adopters. I've experienced the pain of lost progress many times; it's not cool.





For similar reasons, anyone who's previously bought Playstation 3 Edition will be able to upgrade to Playstation 4 Edition for a small fee. This applies to everyone who's bought Minecraft digitally and transfers their PSN account to their new console.

Our intention...

In other PlayStation-related news, the team at 4J is working on bringing Minecraft to PS4 and PS Vita. Sorry for the delay, but making Minecraft happen is serious business.

I'll do my best to answer any other questions you have below. Thanks for playing, everyone!

17w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill is here with details on the latest Minecraft PS3 update, which adds Uncharted, Killzone and Heavy Rain skins.

To quote: Hi everyone. The latest update to Minecraft PS3 brings Emeralds, Ender Chests, Zombie Villagers, and more. Cauldrons fill up in the rain! Wolf collars can be dyed! Pigs drop more porkchops! The list goes on.

Two skin packs are also available. Skin Pack 1 is perfect for hardcore PlayStation fans. It brings a bunch of Sony stalwarts including Nathan "Uncharted" Drake, folks from Heavy Rain, some Killzone dudes, and Sly Cooper.

The Battle and Beasts skin pack includes koalas, a Cleopatra look-a-like, various cavemen, and an octopus. It's the most eclectic pack currently available.

For those of you who aren't content with the classic Minecraft styling, two new texture packs are also launching. The City Texture pack is perfect for the modernist Minecrafter; it'll give your creations a more clean, clinical look. The Plastic Texture pack makes things look a lot more, erm, plasticy.

That's it for now. Have fun!
 

Video: Mojang Outlines 10 Tips for Playing Minecraft on PS3

31w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill outlined 10 tips alongside a video today for those playing Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

To quote: Hi again guys, Owen from Mojang, here. Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition launched a few days ago. We thought it would be nice to get some tips from the developers to help you learn the basics.

I asked around the office and gathered these for you. Hope they help!

1. Never dig straight down! It's a lot harder to get back to the surface, and you might end up dropping into lava. Lava is uncomfortably hot.

2. Never dig straight up! You might end up with a head full of sand, gravel, or the melty hot stuff we mentioned earlier.

3. If you come to a junction while mining, and one of the routes leads upwards, take that one. Explore the safe options first, and then go adventuring deep underground.

4. Always watch your back in dark places! There might be something scary behind you... waaah!

5. Make sure you bring torches. Place them first, then collect the resources later.
