Minecraft Gets Cross-Play Update on PS4

Players of Minecraft on PlayStation 4 rejoice! Minecraft is now getting an update on the PS4 platform that enables all PlayStation users to gain access to cross-play features, so they are now able to play with millions of other players on Xbox, PC, Switch, iOS, Android, and even Samsung Gear VR platform. In the so-called "Bedrock Edition" update that arrives today, Microsoft will push new features to Minecraft and connect millions of players.

In the words of Microsoft's game studio boss Helen Chiang: "One of Minecraft's core missions is to connect players across devices and provide the best experience regardless of platform. We continue to fulfill that mission here today by welcoming PS4 players to Minecraft on Bedrock and growing our cross-platform multiplayer community".

This is excellent news for my family. I have two nephews who play it on PS4, and my niece does on Switch and sometimes me on PC.

A lot of people would argue the reason Minecraft was so successful is because it leaves a lot to the imagination, if Minecraft was launched right now and never heard of with Unreal Engine 4 next level graphics, I doubt it would be successful. I might be wrong, but I think that is why a lot of kids in particular are drawn to it.

Minecraft's success is related to the fact that it was the first voxel based crafting game and, after a few versions, it's crafting/building system was so advanced.
