The Bedrock version of Minecraft could soon be heading to PlayStation 4 consoles, according to a now-removed listing on the Best Buy website.
While PlayStation 4 players can currently enjoy Minecraft thanks to the Minecraft PlayStation 4 Edition, it’s not the same as the Bedrock version.
Bedrock allows players on all supported platforms to enjoy cross-play with each other and also has features such as more vibrant graphics, certain exclusive items, and more.
The listing was first spotted by Twitter user @ITZZ_AgentH14 (thanks to The Nerd Stash for spotting this!) and was picked up by @eckoxsoldier, who also posted a picture of the game’s description before Best Buy took down the page.

The game’s description says that players can “play and share with friends on console, mobile, and Windows 10.” It also has a release date of December 10th, 2019.
Perhaps not too coincidentally, PlayStation’s final episode of State of Play is also set to air on December 10th. It’s most likely that we’ll get a Minecraft reveal there.

Twitter user @gamingguidesde also posted an image showing what appears to be several physical copies of the rumoured PlayStation 4 game.
If the rumours are indeed true, then Minecraft Bedrock will be launching on PlayStation 4 on December 10th, priced at $29.99.
This would mean that PlayStation 4 players will finally be able to play with friends on Android, iOS, Windows 10, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and even Amazon Fire TV.
It’s also likely that those who already own Minecraft on PlayStation 4 will be given the choice to redeem a free copy of the Bedrock version, similar to how those who owned the Nintendo Switch version of Minecraft were given the option to upgrade to the Switch’s Bedrock version for free.
In related Minecraft news, the game topped YouTube’s Most Watched Games of 2019 list with over 100 billion total views. Minecraft Earth Early Access is also available in 10 different countries.
