Modern technique keeps amazing us every day. This industry is versatile and every day it presents new ways to use our mobile phones or play our favourite games. Consoles like Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, Wii U and PlayStation Vita had their share of popularity and glory. Gaming fans really loved them, especially because they were the first ones to introduce games like Minecraft.
However, these devices have become outdated and they are not appropriate for all Minecraft’s updates and improvements anymore. In this case, new gaming technique will hit the market soon and Mojang and Microsoft already announced that they won’t support this game’s evolution on the mentioned consoles any longer.
The last Minecraft update for outdated consoles is out now
The announcement that, starting with next year, Minecraft updates will only be pushed on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, Nintendo Switch and other modern consoles was made public this year in May. It looks like developers really mean it, because these days they announced the last Minecraft update for outdated consoles.
This version is called The Nightmare before Christmas and it brings a themed-character pack. It seems to be an honest farewell for PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Wii U, although some fans that are still using these consoles are disappointed about the breakup.
On the other hand, it looks like the game’s servers will still be available online for a certain period. This gives fans the possibility to connect and share their last thoughts with the others. Neither Microsoft nor Mojang mentioned anything about the servers’ complete closing.
In conclusion, Minecraft players can still enjoy their favorite game on older consoles. Now they could try the most recent and last update – The Nightmare before Christmas. Once Minecraft is no longer available on PlayStation 3, PlayStation Vita and Wii U, gamers can start playing it on more consoles like Nintendo Switch, 3DS, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
