Minecraft could be coming to PlayStation but is unlikely to arrive on Wii U, Mojang’s Jens Bergensten has revealed.

“Microsoft has an exclusivity deal for consoles,” said Bergensten, who is lead designer of Minecraft Pocket Edition for iOS and Android. ”When it runs out we’ll consider Minecraft for PlayStation, but Wii U is very unlikely.”

Speaking to iGamer, Bergensten also confirmed that his team is working on bringing the Minecraft Pocket Edition experience closer to its PC counterpart. “Our current ambition is to get the so-called online multiplayer going,” he said. “This means that you’ll be able to connect to dedicated servers, instead of only connecting to other people’s devices.”

He also explained how difficult it is to bring Minecraft’s mobile edition to such a huge number of different devices. “The biggest challenge has been, and still is, finding the lowest common denominator for all the various mobile models there are on the market. It’s an obstacle to a lot of features that we have on the PC version, such as infinite worlds and redstone contraptions. Over time we’ll have to drop more and more models in order to add fun stuff to Pocket Edition.”

You can read more from the Mojang interview in the new issue of iGamer, which is available on the App Store now.


Well that is that. Minecraft could have used the expensive touch screen controller in useful ways but I guess it is most likely not going to happen.

Everyone plays Minecraft on PC anyway. If you aren't playing on PC you have no access to any mods.

Ok, I'll just keep playing the infinitely superior PC version. Even a netbook can run the game with decent settings and an optimization mod.

As was said on Gaf, Microsoft actually paid for the development on the 360 version. Nintendo and Sony would likely have to do the same.

Well, it's not like the Wii U needs games. It looks like everyone is fine playing games elsewhere, while using the U for street view...
