Though it’s not the first time of virtual reality for Minecraft, the game had already launched on Oculus Rift and HTC Vive VR platforms in 2016. Instead, it’s the first time for Minecraft to appear on a console-based VR platform. The PSVR release of the game was being planned since the Minecraft Bedrock Edition was brought by the team for PlayStation 4, according to Mojang.

Sony’s PlayStation team has shared a short video of the game via social media for you to get an idea, and it does seem interesting. Though the news of the PlayStation 4 update of Minecraft is exciting, a lot of PSVR fans are concerned about Sony’s plans as they still haven’t announced the PlayStation 5 support for the headset.
Anyway, looking forward to more updates anytime soon but for now, it’s time to enjoy the most influential game of all time with PlayStation VR experience.
