No Comment 86 Views

Sad news. Minecraft's release on PlayStation 4 will be delayed. This was revealed via for 4J Studios's official twitter account. 4J Studios are the developers responsible for the console versions of Minecraft, which include Xbox 460, Xbox One, PS3, PS4, and PS Vita.

"Sony found some issues we have to fix in their final test of #MinecraftPS4 🙁 We're fixing, but we need to go through the process again," 4J Studious tweeted. The developer handed the game over for final testing on August 12, but, as it turns out, on August 20, 4J issued an update on the matter, saying it had some issues that need tending to.

Just yesterday, another tweet came out from 4J Studios saying that the game is once more in the hands of Sony. It is safe to guess that it will take the same amount of time to confirm whether the game has further issues that need fixing or not. This means that gamers are to expect a release sometime in September.

Releasing a game on Sony's platforms is not an easy task. It needs to go through a separate certification process for its of its regional for each of its regional subsidiaries: SCEA in North America, SCEJ in Japan, and SCEE in Europe.

At the same time, 4J Studios have also tweeted updates for the Xbox One version of Minecraft. They hope to hand over to Microsoft by the end of this week. Whether or not they will manage is yet to be seen.

Lastly, the PS Vita version needs a bit more work to be done, so it is unclear when exactly they will send it over to Sony.

That's it as far as news for the actual game goes. Now, let's step out of the virtual world and get more physical. LEGO will be releasing two Minecraft play sets this year. One, "The Cave," is already featured on UK retailer Hamley's website. It includes items like Steve, a zombie, a spider, a pickaxe, TNT, and a chest.

The other play set that will come out this year is called "The Farm." Naturally, it features some of the crops that you will find in the game like wheat and sugar cane. You will also get a few farm animals, a skeleton, a crafting table, and, of course, good old Steve.

Future play sets will be based on other aspects of the game such as The First Night, The Mine, and The Ender Dragon.
