Minecraft Update Hits PlayStation Today, Xbox Coming Later This Week

by Kyle Hanson


Minecraft has been around for a long time, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t riddled with bugs and glitches. The version found on consoles in particular has a bunch of problems that have been there since the beginning. This isn’t to say that the developers behind the game, Mojang and 4J Studios haven’t worked hard, it’s just the nature of the game as it was originally developed. Luckily, they issue a lot of bug fix patches for the game in its various forms, with a new one hitting today for some platforms.

Minecraft PS3, PS4, and PS Vita editions will all receive a new update throughout today. 4J has said that this update is just meant to fix bugs, not adding in new features or anything of that sort. The update is hitting worldwide, so you might have to check back later if it doesn’t download right away, the store usually takes a while to update and get the patch out to everyone.

This same bug fix update will be heading to Minecraft on Xbox 360 and Xbox One later this week. Delays like this happen sometimes with multiplatform games, as each company has a different method of verifying that the update isn’t broken. They also have different update days and times, which can contribute as well. Keep an eye out for the update on Xbox though, as it could get slightly delayed once again, pushing it out of this week and into next.

There is no word on a related update hitting Minecraft: Wii U Edition. This isn’t too surprising though, as that version of the game is currently a few behind the rest. Expect patches to hit it, bringing it up to the current version, rather than bug fixes that match up with other versions. Once they get onto the same version of the game it should stick to the same schedule more closely.
