Minecraft Bedrock Edition will finally release on the PlayStation 4 digitally and physically on Tuesday, December 10th, if multiple retailer listings are anything to go by.
First reported by Twitter user eckoxsoldier, a now-removed Best Buy listing outed the release date. Another Twitter user mcbedrockcom then somehow managed to either snap or find a photo of the game’s discs in the wild, confirming that copies are on their way to retailers.

So some time before the end of the holiday season this is a thing you can expect to see on sale (already piling up in stores) pic.twitter.com/WKRp1hni9G

Back in October, an update to Bedrock Edition on other platforms added PlayStation-related assets so we knew a release was imminent. However, a date was never officially announced. We’re assuming that the announcement was set for Sony’s upcoming State of Play.
Features listed by Best Buy include cross-platform play that’ll require users to create a free Microsoft account. The full list of features is as follows:
- Play and share with friends on console, mobile, and Windows 10*
- Discover community creations in the new in-game store
- Access new mini games and game modes through servers
- Share the couch with four-play splitscreen
- Starter Pack contents include 700 Tokens, LittleBigPlanet mash-up, Greek mythology mash-up, Skin Pack 1, City Texture Pack
*Online multiplayer requires an active PS Plus membership
*Realms requires paid subscription (sold separately)
*Cross-platform play requires Microsoft account
We’ll update our readers when an official announcement is made.
