o right i was just looking at it recently cuz i guess playstation has a program kinda like steam but its more to connect your console games to and play them on PC, cuz last i saw the games still need a PS4 controller to play, but i was just gonna see if i can get it to run and make an account to see if they have a group option, so ill check it out and make a post and shoot you a msg

if i cant get it to work out then ill be lookin for ya cuz i dont have a console for it, hopefully they open the multiplayers soon

well that appears to be the way Minecraft is heading with them basically merging with pc version which has been multiple versions ahead for years. they already got basis for PlayStation and Xbox to play together and their requiring Microsoft account login to play Minecraft on all platforms now i believe.

so u will be able to play servers from any platform with others from another platform

i was offering to utilize my ps4 to bridge the gap and maybe set something up down the line since i already have one. and i doubt i will quit all together.

o i got ya thanks, but i think i can do it and ill use the usual DG logo pics i have for its icon and all that, if for some reason the PSN app wont let me for some reason ill hit you up to check it out

and yeah at this point its just kinda dumb games dont have crossplatform MP, even since most of the time with a game now the devs have 1 version for all the platforms, it just identifies which type of account the user has when the game is launching then it applies those rules to it so it loads your account info properly, and in which case why do ppl have to buy different version for different devices? let alone why doesnt the MP work universally? cuz they make it not do that lol, last i knew for some reason PS/Sony doesnt want cross MP cuz for some reason they think the exclusivity draws ppl in or some crap but im sure the other places do the same (*cough*cough* epic launcher *ahem* lol and thats on PC)

yea sure microsoft owns minecraft and they made multiple versions (PC, PS, Xbox, mobile) but now they have all those consoles hooked, so their (slowly) bringing them together to be interactive with each other so microsoft can sell more stuff to those users and not have to create 4 different versions of every skin, every texture pack, etc. now they are just trying to reduce their costs.

in the past more advance versions of Minecraft could do more because PCs were generally more functional and more powerful (memory, power, etc.) they were chosen as flagship system

now consoles are starting to catch up
