Sony 'refused' to support cross platform Minecraft

According to Windows Central's Jez Corden.

Mojang announced during Microsoft's E3 conference that nearly all versions of Minecraft are now cross-platform.

But there's two glaring omissions: the Java version on PC, which is understandable due to the difference in code, but also the PS4 version. According to Jez Corden from Windows Central, Microsoft actually approached Sony, but Sony refused to co-operate.

He went on to say in a reply that Microsoft "said it's their hope for all modern versions to connect to each other. But I got separate info that Sony refused."

It doesn't come as too much of a surprise given it was apparently Sony's refusal that led to Rocket League not having cross-play between PS4 and Xbox One too, but it's disappointing nonetheless.

What platform will you be enjoying the new Minecraft changes on? Let us know in the comments.
