What do we know about Roblox coming to PlayStation so far?
Roblox is one of the most popular gaming platforms at the moment, particularly amongst children andyounger teenagers.
While Roblox has been available on PC, mobile and Xbox for a long time, coming to PlayStation will allow a whole new userbase to access the app.
David Baszucki, CEO of Roblox, announced at the Roblox Developers Conference 2023 on 8 September that the game would be coming to PlayStation 4 and 5 consoles in October this year.
No official release date has been shared at this time, however some players are speculating that it may launch around Halloween.
During the conference, which will continue on 9 September, a live cross play demo showed how cross play would work between devices like the PlayStation 5, Meta Quest headset and a mobile phone.
While it is not unexpected for the PlayStation to perform better than the other two devices, the Sony console performed noticeably better with intuitive controls and beautiful graphics qualty.
Could Roblox come to more platforms in the future?
With Roblox recently coming to Meta Quest and now coming to PlayStation consoles, the app is becoming more and more accessible for people no matter what their prefered gaming platform is.
With the recent move to both Sony and VR, there is a good chance that the game could be added to the PSVR2 library at some point in the future.
Stephen Totilo, from Axios, said that he spoke to Roblox's CTO Dan Sturman who reportedly said that while there is nothing to announce at the moment, Roblox could potentially come to Switch in the future.
