4J Studios, the company working on the console ports of Minecraft, announced back on Aug. 12, 2014, that it had sent Minecraft in to Sony for certification on the PlayStation 4.
Yesterday, the company tweeted out that the game failed the certification process.
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.

As the tweet indicates, 4J Studios is working on fixing the technical issue, but the work means that we’ll have a delay between now and release. The game will have to be fixed and resubmited.
As for how big the delay actually is? Don’t expect it to be so huge that we won’t see Minecraft on the PlayStation 4 until 2015. The game will just miss its August window.
Unfortunately, 4J hasn’t been too forward about either the Xbox One or PS Vita versions of its port work. The latest news we have on that was a tweet that came right after the aforementioned Aug. 12 action.

Yep, they’re still working on it. The games shouldn’t be too far out now.
Are you picking up one of these ports, or are you sticking with your current method of Minecrafting?
