Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition Out Today

Owen Hill's Avatar + Posted by Owen Hill on Dec 17, 2013 // Mojang

Hello fans of video games! Christmas has come early!

Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition is out today on PlayStation Store! It costs $19.99 and weighs in at a 103 MB (including a handy patch that’ll download when you first launch the game).

Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition comes packed with cool stuff: split-screen support for up to four players, online multiplayer for up to eight, Creative mode, Survival mode, and a bundle of Trophies. It’s super fun. If you don’t believe me, get the trial and decide for yourself.

Watch the trailer above to see some pretty footage of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition, or stop reading this and start the download!

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The reason ps4 will be taking so much time is that as you said remote play and the fact it will be as close to pc without mods as possible. Almost unending worlds/biomes updates and so forth. X system and ps3 are limited in the aspect of world size, though content is not as far behind as it was when it first hit X system.

I really wish you guys could confirm if it’s going to be CROSS-BUY.

I have a PS3 and a PS VITA and will buy it immediately if it’s cross-buy!!!!

until you confirm it I’ll have to wait and not buy this :(

If I buy the Playstation 3 version right now, will I get the Playstation 4 version for free or discounted price? Or is it going to cost me 40 dollars if I want it on both of my consoles? Thanks.

@sillychimera943 you can just create a US psn account as i did if you want to bye minecraft for ps3 now

+ TheUndertaker85 on December 18th, 2013 at 5:27 am said:

Any sort of cross play?

Also any plans for cross buy? I wouldn’t mind buying assuming I can use it across PS3, PS Vita, and PS4.

Cross play is wanted but not necessarily needed. Cross buy in this instance seems like a far different subject.

Oh and Sony, since you’ve been so nice to keep my Vita at the repair center for the past month and a half(You received November 8th; Still no return) how about sending it back now so I can actually play my new Vita games that are just sitting around?

Funny though how PS4 was released after you received my system yet multiple reports suggest broken PS4s have no problem returning quickly.

Yea, i too have the PC version since alpha (heck i htink i payed $8- for my legit copy back in the day..

I will only purchase ANOTHER copy when these details are met..

1. Cross-buy (if you think im gonna fork out another $20 for a crappier version of the game your out of your friggen mind!

2. PSN plus discount (4j you said launch title) discount for being liars and getting hopes up. -rep for sure..

3. Cross-play (this is the deal breaker for 99% of PS buyers…) if i cant play this on ps4+vita together.. absolutely no way in hell am i buying it.. nor anyone i know.. (ive seen every third post admit this almost)

4. playing on my TV isnt hard, i can just as easily rig my pc up to any 50″ tv and use the PS3/PS4 controller wireless with pc minecraft (looks better runs better)

5. 4J.. how about you spend that extra time and maybe work with some of those GLSL shader mods + add support for texture packs.. ps4 could handle it easy peasy.. and you would increase your sales exponentially..

(id pay $30 for MC on ps4 if you could somehow work in the ability to use SPHAX bdcraft and the shaders.. $15- for the regular rehashed crap they have had for the past 2+ yrs already..

79, have you ever actually tried playing minecraft with a gamepad??? it’s pretty raunchily rough even with motioninjoy set up as fine as you can with proper deadzones. i’ve basically been waiting for it to come to ps3 for a couple years now because it’s so awful to play with emulated controls instead of hardcoded gamepad controls.
