Apparently Microsoft and Sony made up? Minecraft

Forums - Gaming Discussion - Apparently Microsoft and Sony made up? Minecraft

Was in Walmart and saw a Minecraft on the shelf that couldn’t be sold until the 10th but it was the Better Together version with crossplay. Did they ever announce this? 

Anyways, that’s great. Maybe it’s because of Azure powering their online services now. Hope it leads to more crossplay in the future.

You mean for cross-play?

Nah, I know they took cross play out of “beta” whatever that means, but this was seen as something that would never happen because MS requires an Xbox account to do Minecraft crossplay. Maybe that requirement doesn’t exist on PS4?



Wow - it's nearly 2020 and Minecraft is still a thing...

It was the most popular game on YouTube in 2019, over 100 billion views. Who knew

I’m a teacher and it is definitely still a thing.  In fact it seems like it is resurging.  I hear more students talking about Minecraft then any other game.  I hardly even hear them talk about fortnite (thank the lord).

Minecraft did see an increase in popularity this year. PewDiePie and the Creeper Aw Man meme helped with the increase. 

The thing about Minecraft is there is so much you can do with it. Regular survival, building, adventure maps, mini games, modded, etc. It is kinda why GTAV is still so popular.

The bedrock update is out now for ps4 and you do need to link your PS account to a Microsoft account to use the crossplay feature.

The bedrock version kinda sucks though:
- It takes a lot longer to load, runs less smooth and can take a lot of time to draw in more world when you fly around quickly
- World conversion has bugs, here and there a chunk of my world is missing.

- Mine carts move a whole lot slower and keep pausing, not very useful for fast travel and it screws up timing mechanisms everywhere.
- Power rails don't stay lit up as long as before thus more torches needed to fix dead spots
- Beacons don't show until you get close defeating the whole point of them
- Red stone doesn't work the same, some mechanisms have glitch, some don't work at all.
- Stacked pistons don't work anymore

- Glitchy buttons that stay depressed
- No room to convert worlds, you need to delete old ones first and the file size grows to 155% when converted.

That's just what I ran into trying stuff out for an hour. I had hoped I could use this to import my giant world to the pc and use it there. However when half the red stone stuff is misbehaving there is no point. At least you can easily switch back to the old version (under editions at the bottom of the menu) which loads and runs faster. I'll wait until Bedrock is improved before switching.
