Minecraft is getting a graphics upgrade

Microsoft acquired Mojang, the company behind Minecraft, for $2.5 billion in 2014. They don not yet have any updates on Sony but the definitive goal is to bring all Minecraft players together, which is their main principle.

Minecraft continues to be a dominant force in Microsoft's video game lineup, pioneering cross-platform play like no other.

Servers are also being pulled natively into the game as of the Better Together update.

During the conference of Microsoft last night, hosted at E3 2017, the support for crossplay has been announced for all versions of Minecraft, except for Sony. Weirdly enough, the game's jagged edges and blocky structures look attractive in 4K, as is evidenced by several spots in the trailer revealed at the E3 press conference.

In the wake of multiple games supporting cross-platform play, Sony PlayStation is defending its decision in not participating in the new initiative.

This August, the Better Together update will unify the block building game across almost every major platform. Players on PC, tablets, Xbox One, Xbox One X, and Nintendo Switch will all be able to play together, which is an incredible thing, but you may have noticed that someone is missing from the party. While servers are now being used, Mojang is offering official support to community members for the first time, initially partnering with Lifeboat, InPvP, Mineplex, and Cubecraft at launch. "We would be happy to have the conversation with any publishers or developers who are interested in cross platform play", it said in a statement. "Yes to Nintendo Switch, PlayStation refused", he tweeted, following it up with, "If you want cross platform Minecraft for PlayStation, bug Sony". If you own Minecraft for Xbox One or Nintendo Switch, you'll get a new version for free - and rest assured that your existing world and DLC will be available there.

This particular change is to emphasize the newfound oneness of the game. More importantly, the game's complete visual pipeline has seen a substantial upgrade, meaning Minecraft might finally look impressive on your shiny 4K TV.

Even though it won't get the cross-platform update, Norris did clarify that PS4 would still be getting the Super Duper Graphics Pack that looks to drastically improve Minecraft's graphics.
