Yesterday, a PlayStation blog was posted announcing that Minecraft is officially coming to the PSVR with full support coming later this month. This finally fulfills one of the most requested features of the game from a certain Minecraft fan base of the PlayStation 4.
Minecraft has already been integrated on other consoles but teaming up with PSVR has been a continuous point of interest for players who have been playing the technology and felt that they would be suitable for each other.
While the PSVR isn’t much of an asset in the PlayStation 4 community, it is still comparatively a newer tech when matched to the current console gaming. This means the gadget holds a lot of promise if ever a developer manages to figure out its best use.
As of writing, it has been games such as Beat Saber that is fueling the flame for VR games. However, with the confirmation that PlayStation 5 will support PSVR, Sony definitely has plans in making this technology better and more appealing to the public.
Titles like Minecraft, which remains popular, even after years since its launch, looks like it’s perfect for the VR and could possibly, be how it enters mainstream usage in the near future. For now, the game is expected to give a good boost to the PSVR’s appeal.
Based on the PlayStation blog released earlier today, Minecraft’s developers – Mojang Studios – announced that Minecraft will have full PSVR support launched for the game later in September, but no exact release date was stated.
Based on the post, Minecraft’s PSVR version will give players the same original experience from playing the original game and nothing was altered or removed. This will be a huge selling point for Minecraft fans since they won’t have to worry anything about adapting to the new technology.
The announcement also revealed that Minecraft’s PSVR edition was in development for quite some time. In addition, players will still use the DualShock 4 controller to traverse the game while being engrossed in another world via the PlayStation 4 VR headset.

While the announcement has admitted that the coronavirus pandemic has affected the development of Minecraft as a whole, it took a lot of work before they could say that Minecraft VR was running smoothly.
When Minecraft does something, the whole video game community pays attention. Whether this is enough to get them to try the new Minecraft PSVR remains to be seen. However, more methods to play one of the best games to ever be released will never be a bad thing.
