Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition

Season’s greetings! Owen from Mojang here. I have some exciting news that you might be interested in. It’s about Minecraft – a game that’s sold over 30 million copies to date. Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, you’ll probably build simple structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. Later on, you might work with your friends to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It’s pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary that pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 EditionMinecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available to download from PSN on December 17th in North America. Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and Minecraft: PS Vita Edition are also being developed, but we don’t have release dates yet. Expect them sometime next year.

I’ve received a few questions concerning the PS3 edition over the past few months, so let’s clear them up before I get thrown off the blog…

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 EditionMinecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition

Q: Does Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature everything from the other versions of Minecraft?
Minecraft: PS3 Edition comes with everything present in other console versions. They’re pretty much identical to play, and will be developed in tandem from now on.

Q: Will Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature DLC texture packs and skins?
Downloadable skins and texture packs will be available from PSN soon after release.

Q: Will there be PlayStation-specific content?
PlayStation-specific skins and texture packs would be cool! Fingers crossed, eh?

Q: Will Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature Remote Play or compatibility with the PS4 or PS Vita editions?
We don’t know yet, sorry. We’ll let you know as soon as we do.

Q: Does Herobrine feature in Minecraft: PS3 Edition?
Probably not.

That’s it for now! I’ll do my best to answer any more queries you have below! Merry Christmas/Nadolig Llawen everyone!

What time will Minecraft be coming out? I have searched the PSN and I cannot find it. I did find it on Sony Entertainment Network.


305

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:44 am said:

Just go to the ‘Games’ section in the PSN Store and click ‘New this Week’ and scroll down!


306

+ x0Flying_Viper0x on December 17th, 2013 at 10:44 am said:

Again, I’ll just stick to my PC version, wasn’t a big fan of this game going console when it hit xbox, not a big fan of it hitting PS either. I mean, yeah, its cool and all, but I like having the control that the mouse and keyboard give you. That’s just imo though.

Sweet, thank you so much. Cannot wait to play it.


314

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:50 am said:

They may be having problems with it because I saw that 2 people bought it then it went down to 0. Give it a few minutes and it should be back to normal.


315

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:52 am said:

I just bought mine and I plan on downloading it after I clean my ps3 up some.


316

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:53 am said:

By then, they should have it squared out and will be able to download without any problems.


317

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:54 am said:

@310 Search it or go to ‘New this Week’ in the ‘Games’ Section. If it isn’t there yet, then it may not be available for your Time Zone at the moment.


318

+ NGTKU on December 17th, 2013 at 10:55 am said:

How much will minecraft be?

Will there be a voice chat option for online players?


319

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 10:58 am said:

@317 It’s $20 and it should have it, since the X-Box 360 enables Voice Chat.


320

+ bubbep on December 17th, 2013 at 11:08 am said:

Finally downloaded it and try to create a world, all I get is a network error.


321

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 11:22 am said:

Did you create offline or online? If it was Online, then the servers are probably not integrated or running at the moment.

NOW I know why Freedom Cry is being held up. Gotta make sure this goes smoothly. Totally understand. Just sucks.


327

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 11:34 am said:

Freedom Cry is already out, it’s just that Sony has been pushing 4J Studios to make the game ‘Minecraft’ available to Playstation gamers due to extremely high demand. Don’t worry, it will be available soon, I just do not know when.

+ CrimsonBullets15 on December 17th, 2013 at 11:37 am said:

Go to the ‘Games’ Section and look for ‘New This Week’ or use this Search option to find it. If it isn’t there, then it isn’t available in your area at the moment.

342

@340 Not possible. PS3 version is completely different, same with 360. Plus they don’t use Mojang account system.

@342 Since PS4 version of Minecraft doesn’t exist..yet, you might as well wait for info on cross buy.


346

+ The_Dukenator on December 17th, 2013 at 1:45 pm said:

@343 Go to PS store.


347

+ BodaMo3 on December 17th, 2013 at 1:45 pm said:

Much better than Xbox 360 edition.

Can it be cross buy with the PS4/PS3/Ps Vita?
