I’ll answer that question, along with giving you detailed information as it relates to Roblox and Sony’s popular gaming systems.
What is Roblox?
Roblox is what is known as an ‘Imagination Platform’. This platform allows kids to play in a variety of 3D worlds and games. They can also create their own worlds, where anyone can visit.
Roblox boasts over 100 million active users, making it one of the most popular video games in the world.
The statistics on the official Roblox website is pretty impressive. It highlights that since 2008, over 37 billion hours have been played. 3 billion total engagement hours each month and they have a peak of 5.2 million concurrent users.
Does Roblox Work on the PS4 or PS5?
Quick Answer: No, currently Roblox can’t be played on either the Sony PS4 or PS5.
Kids who want to play this game will have to use the following devices:
iOS devices, Android smartphones, tablets, PCs, Xbox One and Amazon devices.
Is Roblox Coming to PS4 or PS5 (When is the Release Date)?
There have been no reports in the media, indicating when or if Roblox will be available on the Sony PS4 or PS5.
You are probably wondering why this popular video game is not on the world’s most popular video game systems?
It would make sense to have a console version, as you could easily switch from your smartphone to a PS4 or PS5 at any given time.
As it stands, we will continue to check the media to see if there are any announcements from the Roblox developers as it relates to the game being available on any of Sony’s platforms.
For now, Roblox can only be played on Microsoft’s Xbox One, iOS and Android Mobile devices, along with the PC.
Why is Roblox not on PS4 or PS5?
There are a couple of reasons why Roblox is currently unavailable on the Sony PS4/PS5.
- The biggest reason is that an exclusive deal exists with Microsoft. If you own an Xbox One, you will be able to play the game with no problem. Microsoft is Sony’s biggest competitor and the exclusive deal with Roblox probably included a clause that would make the game unavailable to any direct competitors.
- The hardware of the PS4/PS5 might make it a bit difficult to port Roblox to the systems. This has happened with video games in the past, so this could be a possibility.
- Playing Roblox on a console is a bit different than playing on a smartphone, tablet or computer. Because there might be a bad experience, Sony possibly made the decision to not host the game.
Wrapping it up
With Roblox not being available on the Sony PlayStation 4 or 5, you will not be able to play if you own that system and there is not timeline as to when/if it will be available.
If you want to play the game, you will be able to do so on iOS devices, Android smartphones, tablets, PCs, Xbox One and Amazon devices.
