Although owned by Sony competitor Sony, Minecraft still has a long history with the PlayStation platform. It was initially available on PS3 and then ported to PS4, but was the same treatment given to a PSVR version of Minecraft? With Minecraft VR available on PC and mobile, surely it's a breeze to release it for consoles via PlayStation VR too? Here's everything you need to know if the world's favorite crafting game can be played in VR on PlayStation 4.
Is it a PSVR version of Minecraft on PS4?
Minecraft virtual reality has been available for some time now on Oculus Rift and Windows Mixed Reality headsets for PC - along with Samsung's head-mounted mobile display Gear VR (HMD). Despite this, no plans have ever been announced to release a PSVR version of Minecraft. This means that as of this writing, there is no Minecraft PSVR support on PS4 and no Minecraft PSVR release date.

With PlayStation VR being the best-selling virtual reality headset, it seems odd to think that any of the parties involved would be against bringing Minecraft VR to PS4. However, that hasn't stopped Reddit users from speculating that the situation stems from tensions between Microsoft and Sony. Since Minecraft is already available on PS4, however, it's hard to say whether that speculation carries weight.
Regardless, fans are petitioning for a Minecraft version of PlayStation VR online. Having obtained 918 signatures since the publication of this guide, there is clearly some level of demand. Whether it will serve to influence those involved in making decisions remains to be seen.
