Minecraft PS4 and Xbox One Editions Teased by 4J Studios

April 12, 2014 by Samantha Lienhard - Leave a comment


We haven’t heard much about the PS4 or Xbox One versions of Minecraft lately, but now we have reason to suspect they’re coming soon. 4J Studios, the developer of the console versions, sent out the following Tweet yesterday morning:

On the surface, this is just an innocuous message about a Perfect Dark sale, but take a closer look at the image. The screen in the background is playing Minecraft, and it’s displaying an auto-save message that tells the player not to turn off the PlayStation 4 console. The PS4 controller is also visible on the table–right in front of a PS Vita also displaying Minecraft. And what’s that sitting next to the Vita, behind the bottle? It sure looks like an Xbox One controller.

Consider this to be a rumor until we hear an official announcement, but it certainly feels like 4J Studios is teasing us with a playable build of Minecraft for the PS4 and Vita, with an Xbox One hint thrown in. What do you think?

Potential PS4 cheats & codes – what could the next generation bring?

November 13, 2013 by Cheats.co Staff - Leave a comment

The official launch of the PlayStation 4, Sony’s next-gen gaming console, is now upon us with many reporting that their pre-ordered console has already shipped. When the PS4 is officially released on November 15 a large library of launch titles and future games will accompany it. In the little time remaining, Cheats.co will try to predict the kinds of PlayStation 4 cheats the future will bring.


Call of Duty: Ghosts is already available as a current-gen title, and the PS4 version will be very similar to the one already out (upgraded 1080p visuals aside). This first-person shooter does not have many cheats discovered so far, but it does have new gameplay modes that players can unlock through their actions, as well as hidden files to collect for a Trophy. Trophy strategies and similar cheats will be the most likely things we see for this PS4 title. Another current-gen title making the jump to the eighth generation of consoles is DC Universe Online. This comics-based MMORPG has Trophy guides and hints to help players deal more damage, though its online nature means more cheats could appear as time goes on. FIFA 14 is a third game we can speculate about with a good degree of accuracy. Although it has already appeared on numerous systems, this sports game will launch on the PS4 with a new game engine. Based on the current version, FIFA 14 cheats will likely pertain to Trophies and Trophy strategies.


Minecraft is in the interesting position of being a current-gen game announced for next-gen systems that is not going to be a launch title. Although the PS4 version was supposed to release alongside the console, it has been delayed. Nevertheless, this sandbox game is so popular that it’s easy to predict that its cheats will look a lot like those for the versions already out—unlockables, Trophy guides, and strategies to take advantages of glitches for cool effects like invisibility and item duplication. As a fairly similar experience across the platforms it has appeared on, it should hold few surprises.


However, these next two games won’t be fully understood until the PS4 releases, as they are both exclusive launch titles. Killzone: Shadow Fall has caused much excitement amongst series fans and newcomers alike. As a first-person shooter based on a special forces group known as the Shadow Marshals, any cheat codes for the game will probably unlock new weapons, give the player boosted health or even invincibility, or unlock scenes and areas from the game. Other likely possibilities include bonus costumes and humorous character effects. While Shadow Fall looks at the dark side of things, another one of the PS4’s big launch titles is a family-friendly action game called Knack. As a new IP, there is little to compare Knack to, but its gameplay suggests we could see cheat codes that would unlock Knack’s various abilities or grant him invincibility. There will likely be strategies on how to easily get through each level.


Whether they are interested in Knack, Killzone, or one of the many other PlayStation 4 titles, players who follow speculation about Sony’s next-gen console should get ready for its imminent release and decide if they want to pick one up or pass.

500 game developers came together to choose the winners of this year’s Game Developers Choice Awards, which were announced and presented at the 25th Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.

Rockstar Games’s Red Dead Redemption was named Game of the Year, but that wasn’t the only award this title received. It also won Best Game Design, Best Technology, and Best Audio.

Minecraft, the sandbox game by Mojang, won three awards: Best Debut Game, Best Downloadable Game, and the Innovation Award.

Bioware’s Mass Effect 2 won the award for Best Writing, Chillingo’s Cut The Rope won Best Handheld, and Playdead’s Limbo won Best Visual Art.

Peter Molyneux was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award, while Yu Suzuku received the Pioneer Award.

On an interesting note, Minecraft also won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize from the Independent Games Festival, at its 11th annual awards ceremony. This is the first time a game has received an award at both GDC and IGF in the same year.
