Would Sony Kick Minecraft off their consoles?

Now that Microsoft have brought Mojang and Minecraft along with it, the question on everyone’s mind is what will happen to the hugely popular game? Will it become an exclusive to Microsoft platforms or will they continue to support the game for everything that it is currently on?

So far, Microsoft has come out and said that it will not take the game off of any console and I think that is a smart move. Seeing how much bad blood they’ve received when they announced that Tomb Raider may be an exclusive, I don’t think that they could afford to be hated again so soon and by such a huge number of gamers. Microsoft however, are in a unique position of owning a game that is on everything, even their fiercest competitor. This means that soon enough, when I boot up my PS4  and play Minecraft, I will have to see a nice little Microsoft logo pop up on the screen. This is advertising for Microsoft where they would want to be, right in the faces of PS4 owners.

This then gives Sony a real problem, on the one hand they can’t be happy with seeing a Microsoft screen anywhere on their system, but they can’t take away Minecraft… or can they? All Microsoft have to do is sit pretty here and watch the money come in whilst waiting to see what decision Sony make. Either way, I wouldn’t want to be the person at Sony who has to make that decision.

What do you think will happen to Minecraft now that Mojang belongs to Microsoft? Let us know in the comments below!

    Since Microsoft has said the game isn’t going anywhere Sony would be fools to hand them an easy Public Relations win by banning the game on Sony consoles especially considering Sony is doing really well with the PS4 sales in comparison to the XB1.

      they both are doing well, both are selling better then the consoles they replaced, and minecraft has sold more on MS consoles then sony…either way, its still primarily a pc driven game

    That would be the dumbest thing $0N¥ (no dollars, no yen) could do. Throwing the largest and fastest growing franchise, just because it’s now MS branded, off their dying pauperbrand would be even dumber than most of the past decade of their company destroying business decisions.

      That thing uses the disqus names Death Dealer and Lionheart. It has been plaguing disqus for years. As you can see, it isn’t above using outright murder and tragedy to fuel its deranged hatred of pieces of plastic and anyone who likes PS.

      Ironically it lives in the Netherlands. So far it hasn’t reconciled its deranged cognitive dissonance in the Netherlands being treated like Tier 2 Trash by MS, yet constantly screaming lies and blind hatred about Sony.

      It also constantly spams Netherlands Dutch message boards with the same deranged fanboy lies and hatred. It is sick, evil, demented, and needs to be removed from the internet.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well
      funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or
      going bankrupt.

      Playstation is an extremely successful global brand. Stop spreading sick lies and hatred. You need mental help.

      Stop
      spreading fanboy lies, hatred, and FUD, it accomplishes nothing. It’s
      not healthy to hate pieces of plastic and people who like playing video
      games on them. It’s sad that you hate good video games for being on the
      wrong piece of plastic.

        BTW, not trying to incite a flamewar, but I’ve seen this exact comment on other sites as well, I am assuming that you have no life but to defend Sony, but you do not need to; they are doing a great job themselves by simply being #1 and having the PS4 outsell the XBOX ONE like it is no-one’s business. Cheers! 🙂

    This won’t happen – don’t forget the platform holders (Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Steam, etc;) take a cut (thought to be around thirty per cent) from every sale. It’s worth far more to Sony to have it on the system than off – kicking it off the system is gifting Microsoft an exclusive and throwing away a revenue stream.

      PS4 has many great games that gamers love. That’s why it’s 11+ million in sales and growing. Sony’s large number of well funded 1st parties will ensure PS4 has a ton of great AAA exclusives, as many or more than PS3.

      1st/2nd party studios include Japan Studio, Polyphony Digital, Naughty Dog, SCE Bend, SCE San Diego, SCE Santa Monica, Sucker Punch, Pixel Opus, Evolution Studios, Guerrilla Games, Guerrilla Cambridge, SCE London, Media Molecule, Ready at Dawn, Quantic Dream, etc. Sony’s 1st party studios are working on several unannounced AAA PS4 games. Expect big announcements in 2015.

      According to listwar PS4 has 123 games right now. PS4/Sony exclusives 2015: The Order: 1886, Bloodborne, Ratchet & Clank Redux, Uncharted 4, Tearaway Unfolded, Until Dawn, Persona 5, more.

      PS4 has many features including media with more on the way in firmware 2.0. PS4 has plenty of support from Sony and developers.

      PSN is hugely improved and Sony is continually investing more into it. PSN handled the Destiny launch just fine.

      Both Forza and Driveclub are good racing games, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      PS4 could easily handle Forza Horizon 2 and upgrade the graphics due to PS4’s more powerful hardware. Driveclub would have to be downgraded to run on Xbox.

      There will be no parity if PS4’s stronger hardware is being pushed. In essentially every way, the PS4’s hardware is more powerful than the XBO’s. If they’re the same resolution, PS4 will have a framerate or visual effects advantage, or its stronger hardware isn’t being pushed.

      Factual PS4 Hardware Advantages: +6 CUs, +540 GFlops (40% greater) or more (1.3TF to 1.84TF), +16 ROPs, +6 ACEs/CQs, better GPGPU support (volatile bit and onion+ gpu cache bypass bus), better performing CPU, faster unified memory, and less OS overhead.

      No amount of API updates is going to make up for that hardware gap.

      Exclusively 1080p 60 FPS console games on PS4: MGS V, CoD Ghosts, FFXIV, Tomb Raider, MLB The Show 14, Resogun, Trials Fusion, Diablo 3 (higher framerate), Project Cars, Metro Redux, TLOU Remastered, more.

      Sony’s ICE team, Naughty Dog, and Santa Monica Studios will fully utilize PS4’s stronger hardware, so it will stay ahead in graphics performance.

      Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys. Some big plates of crow are ready to be served.

      PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

      Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.

      Driveclub, The Order, Uncharted 4, etc. are technically superior as they run on more powerful hardware. Normal, unbiased, sane people recognize PS4 exclusive games look better, which makes sense given they’re running on more powerful hardware.

      PS4 is selling on price/performance, better PR and global appeal, long term 1st party support, large number of 1st party studios, more total games and dev support including Japanese and indie devs, wider variety of games, improved PSN since the PS3 days, and PS+ value. It’s seen as the best console for multiplatform games.

      All 3 consoles have good exclusive games, and pros and cons, it’s only fanboys blindly hating one or the other.

      As expected by anyone knowledgeable and sane, tier 2 launches are doing almost nothing for Xbox sales. It’s sad this is the result after 10+ months of “wait for Xbox to launch in more countries” from fanboys. Some big plates of crow are ready to be served.

      PS4 and Xbox sales can be compared right now and PS4 is outselling Xbox more than 2:1. PS4 will outsell Xbox in China like every other country on the planet, and Xbox sales in China will do little. PS4 is keeping its 1st place in global sales.

      Sony is making a profit on PS4 hardware, the gaming division is well funded, profitable and in an overall net profit. Sony is not broke or going bankrupt.

      Sony has been good about honesty with the PS4 for the most part. They have much better PR this gen than PS3, that’s one reason it’s selling so well. No lies were made selling Destiny, it’s a good game that is selling well.
