Top 3 features Minecraft on the PS4 needs

My second idea to enable Minecraft on the PS to embrace success. To do that is the game should allow players to mod it as much as possible. The immense popularity of the PC version can surely be put down to the fact that players could tinker with the game to their heart's content.
Game modding is the key to many franchises success, like Little Big Planet which has fully embraced customisation and level construction. Future games such as Mike Bithell's new PS title Volume (that interestingly names one of Minecraft’s influences LEGO as an inspiration) will also enable players to construct custom levels. Why do it? Well it's done because allowing players to customise a game increases its lifespan by years, and also players who have the patience and imagination to come up with ideas that the games’ creators would never think of or have time to implement. PC Minecraft has seen some insane mods from muskets to fully working computers, and if the PS version is moddable in as detailed way as possible then people will still be playing it in years to come.
To me Minecraft and modding go together like beer and pork products, and in my experience where you find both you find happy people. So it should come as no surprise that my favourite PC Minecraft mod was without no doubt the introduction of beer, add in the fact that you already have pork then the only thing missing for me is the moddable hangover. Which I hope means if I wake up after a night on the 8-bit beer feeling rough, I can just turn my hangover off.
