Minecraft PSVR is finally coming to PS4 this month. When Microsoft acquired the creators of Minecraft, Mojang, many users were afraid of seeing some restrictions and even the departure of the game from other rival platforms. However, the company not only maintained a neutral stance, but even worked with Nintendo and Sony to maintain higher quality crossover play, focused on delivering the best experience for gamers .
Long awaited Minecraft PSVR will be on PlayStation 4 soon
A mentality that we see again with the long-awaited announcement of the arrival of Minecraft PSVR, which after numerous delays, will finally be available to PlayStation 4 players. Still without a specific date, but set for this month, this new compatibility with PSVR would come via a common, free update for the main game, so players don’t need to do anything other than download that patch.
However, despite the fact that Minecraft’s first-person perspective is ideal for the jump to virtual reality, trying to break virtual bricks with our arms could be an excessive effort for many. Which is why Sony has decided to keep the playability and the necessary use of a DualShock 4 controller intact, limiting the new functionalities to the control of the camera and the general interface of the game.

Minecraft VR on PS4 and PS5?
One of the unknown factor is whether this virtual reality device from Sony will also advance to the new generation of consoles, since despite the recent push with exclusive games such as Iron Man VR, without a doubt Minecraft could play a fundamental role within the catalog of titles compatible. And with more than 200 million copies sold, this game of humble origin is already one of the best-selling games of all time.
We are not sure if Minecraft VR will be on PS5 or not. Because Microsoft’s Xbox is the greatest rival of PS5 and with Minecraft being on PS5 might be worrying for Sony.
Although we have already heard various rumors about the possible return of Microsoft’s Kinect family, its old motion capture system, which could reach the new generation under an update that would make it compatible with the new functionalities of virtual reality and augmented reality.
