Minecraft has been a hit for players of all ages ever since the first release on PC, Mac, and Linux back in 2011. It was quickly followed by Android and iOS versions in the same year, and a digital Xbox release in 2012. Physical retail copies were released in 2013 for the Xbox first, followed by the PS3 at the end of the year. Versions for the Xbox One, PS4, and Vita have been in the works, but have been delayed due to bugs and errors.
All three versions have been slated for a release this month. But PS4 owners will have to wait a bit longer, as the PS4 version failed the final certification test.
Sony found some issues we have to fix in their final test of #MinecraftPS4 😦 We’re fixing, but we need to go through the process again.

4JStudios submitted the PS4 version for final certification back on August 12th. This setback has caused 4JStudios to spend more time on fixing bugs and testing for the Xbox One and Vita versions before sending both off for final certification tests.
With the end of the month so close, it’s becoming more unlikely that the game will be kept to it’s August 2014 release. We’ll keep you posted on any updated release dates or information regarding these three versions of the popular game.
