A Steelbook Edition of Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition is coming out. Unfortunately, it appears that it is exclusive to Amazon.de in Germany. Find the photos of the special packaging below this paragraph.
The Steelbook Edition is being made available on the 22nd of October. Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition launched first as a digital release on the 4th of September on the Sony Entertainment Store (which is still also referred to as PlayStation Store by some fans). While the disc release already came out in the United States on the 2nd of October, it did not come with a steelbook. Buy the U.S. version of the product right now on Amazon.
Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition has some features not found in the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Vita editions. For one, it can rendered more of the worlds, up to 32 times bigger compared to the three lesser versions. The draw distance also got some improvements. Of course, 4J Studios and Mojang also enabled a feature that let gamers import their saves from the PlayStation 3 and Vita editions if they want to upgrade.
Given the popularity of the PlayStation 4 and Minecraft, Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition should sell a lot of copies at retail during Black Friday and the rest of the holiday season.
