Updated with additional platforms and comment from Markus Persson.

Minecraft is no longer console exclusive to Xbox. Sony has announced that Mojang's block-building game will be available at PS4's launch.

In fact, the upcoming PlayStation Network version of Minecraft will be available on PS3 and Vita as well, confirmed by a rather succinct tweet by Mojang's Markus Persson. The Vita version is of particular note, as it should provide a more robust experience than the current Android version--while still offering those crucial analog sticks and buttons.

The Xbox 360 version of Minecraft has been selling incredibly well at retail. An Xbox One version is also forthcoming.
