Minecraft: PS3 Edition Now Available

Popular sandbox game Minecraft is now available for PS3. Publisher Mojang on Monday announced that the game would be arriving on Sony's PlayStation 3 via the official PlayStation blog.

Owen Hill from Mojang revealed that Minecraft: PS3 Edition would be launching today, December 17, for gamers in North America. He also cleared up some confusion surrounding Minecraft for PS3.


For one, Hill says Minecraft: PS3 Edition will come with everything from the other console versions and DLC texture packs, and skins are on their way to PSN soon. For another, there could be PlayStation-specific skins and texture packs in the future.

For those of you who are past the PS3 and are happily enjoying the next generation of PlayStation, Hill says a PS4 Edition and PS Vita Edition are in the works. Though development has already started, there's no release date beyond 'next year.'

    My son already plays this on his S4 and the PC... There is no way I'm going to tell him this is on the PS3 and eventually 4 because I'll never get the TV back lol.

  • @Weak, That's fine but I think I'll choose over the PS3 version since it seems more simpler and I have more friends on PS3 than PC who will be playing Minecraft.
