Any word on if Minecraft is a launch game?Are hands being tied to 1 launch date?

Hmmm....just thought of what could be the delay. Possibly Kinect features? So I am going to say if you are not into Kinect or your friend's are not, just get the Ps4.

Considering what Minecraft is, a new block would probably be a pretty big deal. LOL


Does the PC version have a new block type that's not in the 360 version?

I suppose XB1 version could have horses and the PS4 version doesn't but we don't know at this time...

Just guesstimation. Both could be entirely the same, hell if I know. I just do not know why Microsoft would delay it, if its not something differen't.

Yeah, that's what I was saying, anything apart from that, would be minor.

Who needs horses when you can ride flying pigs? At least, I assume that's what the achievement is for XD

My guesses is that the version will be mostly identical. Examiner says that all version are being developed by 4J Studios, the guys responsible for the Xbox 360 version. There was talk originally of Kinect controls for the 360 version that never surfaced, its possible they could make their way to the One.

The only other tidbit though is that 4JStudios did tweet something about looking into copying your 360 save into the Xbox One minecraft. I find it odd that after such a deal with MS that they would let it come to Sony's system first unless there was a plan for additional features though. This is all guess work.
