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!

Really happy to see this, I’ve been waiting so long! There is a free trial, which I downloaded for free from PSN Store, so that’s awesome! Also, by the way, the full game is $19.99 for download! Thank you Mojang and Sony!

I bought Minecraft for my boyfriend as well as myself… however… it is on pc. There isn’t any possible chance that Mojang is allowing those on pc to move it to other consoles right? :/ Otherwise there goes $40.00 on a game I already bought.

would literally buy this right now if it were crossbuy… come on Mojang, no matter how good minecraft is, I am not being forced to buy it 2 more times. I’m gonna hold out for the ps4 version unless it is crossbuy. I’ve already spent a fortune on this one game.

http://mcps3ag.yuku.com/ is a Temporary forum for players to meet each other until we can get a real forum made(I never made one before so go figure.). There is also a Facebook page for people who want to play online together via PS3 to keep in contact and meet https://www.facebook.com/groups/562692713818991/

Feel free to add me on PSN if you’re up for a game sometime, My roomie and I are pretty laid back and only have a couple of rules when I run a game for people to join openly.

If I buy the PS3 edition of minecraft can I upgrade it to PS4 for free?
Will I get the PS4 edition for free, have to pay a discounted amount or have to pay full price?

I want Minecraft console now, but don’t want to pay again later.

Herobrine is real in Minecraft PlayStation®3 as when I was playing online with 2 other people, I was starting to get hit. I was on my own on a small island with the other 2 people building houses on a completely different island. I was climbing vines and I was hit, twice. I looked around to see if anyone was near me, I saw no-one. I climbed down and decided I took fall damage. I started to eat as my hunger was low when I got hit twice again. I was really creeped out and I looked around again. Still, no-one. Invisible killer? Only one possibility, Herobrine…
