Sony fires at Xbox with arsenal of big PS4 games

The update will also bring a new graphics pack to view games in 4K, and with better effects like shadows and improved lighting, as well as water effects. All purchases from now on will be available across all devices at no extra charge.

This unification plan will also allow for the expansion of the Minecraft Marketplace and the content creator program, as well as the introduction of new in-game Minecraft servers.

In a blogpost explaining the change, Minecraft's team wrote, "our Better Together Update introduces cross-platform play, breaking down the barriers and letting people play the same complete Minecraft with each other across devices". Once again, like Minecraft, PlayStation platforms is missing from the list, and the reason is same again: SONY REFUSED. In an interview with Eurogamer, Sony's global head of sales and marketing, Jim Ryan, gave a pretty silly answer with regards as to why Sony isn't allowing more flexibility with PSN. The organization said that it had more than 70 million month to month active users worldwide toward the end of March, while PlayStation Plus revealed 26.4 million paid users. "Today we're able to confirm Xbox One and Nintendo Switch, but all of our current-gen partners - we're interested in connecting all of the Minecraft players".

There were two huge cross-platform games announced recently. The PC version of the game already supported 4K resolution rendering.


In the wake of multiple games supporting cross-platform play, Sony PlayStation is defending its decision in not participating in the new initiative. Minecraft is launching with four servers, which are Lifeboat, Mineplex, InPVP, and Cubecraft. Any of the Bedrock versions can work together, said Jesse Merriam, Minecraft's executive producer.

This update will only be available on Xbox One and Windows PC and will look best on Xbox One X and high-end PCs. We'll have more info about the release date of the free 4K update and Super Duper Graphics Pack DLC closer to release.

Eurogamer: Well, you must see that PlayStation owners are upset.
