Although it’s owned by Sony competitor Microsoft, Minecraft still has a long history with the PlayStation platform. It was first available on PS3 and was then brought over to PS4, but has the same treatment been given to a Minecraft PSVR version? With Minecraft VR being available on PC and mobile, surely it’s a no-brainer to also release it for console via PlayStation VR? Here’s everything you need to know about whether or not the world’s favourite crafting game can be played in virtual reality on PlayStation 4.
Is a Minecraft PSVR version on PS4?
Minecraft virtual reality has been available on Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets for PC — along with the Samsung Gear VR mobile head-mounted display (HMD) — for a while now. Despite this, no plans to release a Minecraft PSVR version have ever been announced. That means there’s no Minecraft PSVR support on PS4 at the time of writing, and no Minecraft PSVR release date to look forward to.
With PlayStation VR being the best-selling virtual reality headset, it seems strange to think that any of the involved parties would be opposed to bringing Minecraft VR to PS4. Still, that hasn’t stopped users on Reddit from speculating that the situation results from tensions between Microsoft and Sony. Since Minecraft is already available on PS4, however, it’s hard to say whether that speculation holds any weight.
Regardless, fans are petitioning for a Minecraft PlayStation VR release online. Having gained 918 signatures as of this guide’s publication, there’s clearly some level of demand present. Whether that’ll serve to sway those involved in making decisions remains to be seen.
