PlayStation 4 Edition
Digital - PSN
This edition is the only version of Legacy Console Edition that still receives major updates. It matched the now discontinued Xbox One Edition in available content, such as large size and amplified world options. Microsoft was going to have the PS editions developed on the Bedrock edition, but Sony declined.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition was announced at Sony's exhibit at Gamescom 2013. Like almost all other games that will be released on the PS4, PS4 Edition can be played on the PlayStation Vita through Remote Play. It was released on September 4, 2014.
Online Split screen does not require all users to have an active PS Plus Membership, although it seems to. Cancel everything that appears on-screen to skip the log in process.
The game is similar to PlayStation 3 Edition, but supports the enhancements offered by the PlayStation 4 (increased view distance, Large worlds (worlds 36 times larger - effectively 5120x5120 blocks) and DualShock 4 touchpad support). Worlds made on last gen consoles or the PlayStation Vita can also be transferred onto this edition. This allows you to expand the world size of a classic sized world (less than one map).
