Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition Available December 17th

The day has finally come! The hit game Minecraft is finally releasing on the PS3 tomorrow in North America.

Notch has stated before that it would not be coming to other consoles, but I guess that has all changed. Between the Xbox, Pocket, and PC version, I have definitely played this game for over 200 hours, so this is for sure a day one buy for me.

Also this is perfect Game Night material so I hope to see many of those in Minecraft. You’ll also be happy to hear that the PS3 version will be up to date with the Xbox version, although no bigger map is kind of disappointing. 4J studios, the same development team behind the Xbox version has uploaded a short trailer you can watch above. More specific release details can be found here

    I’ve stayed far, far away from Minecraft since it would probably eat all of my time hahaha.

    Wohoo !
    I played WAY OVER 400h at Minecraft (PC) with my friends !

    This question might seem naive, but is multiplayer supported in the console version ? Do you know for how much this will retail ?

    @Ceidz Multiplayer will for sure be supported, everything you can do in the Xbox version you can do in the PS3 version. And this is pure speculation but I’m guessing there will be a discount promotion when the PS4 version comes out, just like what they did with Black Ops and other games when the PS4 came out. The Writer of the article on the EU playstation blog said he couldn’t comment on that so you know what that means.

    I’m scared of Minecraft. It seems time consuming. When Vita comes out i will think. A crossbuy cross save version would be great and get to me to reconsider.

    I’m actually not scared of minecraft because I still don’t get it. I’ll check it out when it goes free for plus. my backlog is too huge to spend money.
