Minecraft Hits PS3 December 17th in North America

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 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!

I’m super pumped about this. Spent HUNDREDS of hours playing the 360 edition and I’m glad that this version comes with a platinum. Can’t wait to play it again on PS4 with everyone too.

tnd789 said:

December 17th, 9:21 am

FrankPrime said:

December 17th, 9:28 am

Why would it be free ? Its a game… Do people ask if call of duty will be free when it comes out ? Idiots….

Also, there will be a demo/tria for minecraft, where you can play for 60mins on the tutorial island

salvador6195 said:

The_Dukenator said:

@278 Yes, it was asked on the first page.

FrankPrime said:

December 17th, 9:42 am

Yes, the game will be unavailable for those who are impatient.

jakcoolman11 said:

December 17th, 9:44 am

At what time do you think Minecraft will be available for purchase in North America?

Detinator73 said:

December 17th, 9:48 am

@174 – Clearly in my opinion, Notch should have released Minecraft on Steam – but he did not…. Now my other question: Will there be the Skyrim and coming-soon Mass Effect DLCs for PS3 version?

Detinator73 said:

December 17th, 9:48 am

Edit: to @284: Skyrim and Mass Effect DLCs for Minecraft PS3 version.

blake1475 said:

December 17th, 9:51 am

Is there a price out yet at least!

CrimsonBullets15 said:

December 17th, 9:51 am

Time of Release: The PSN Store usually updates between 12:00 – 9:00 P.M. (CST). So don’t expect it until later this afternoon or evening! Just be patient, please!

Price: Since the X-Box 360 version is $19.99, ours will most likely be the same.

For other answers, please scroll through the pages to find them! Other then that, calm down and just wait it out! You’ll most likely be notified on here when it becomes available.

CrimsonBullets15 said:

December 17th, 9:54 am

@285 Currently, I have no information regarding DLC but there will probably be some in the future!

CrimsonBullets15 said:

December 17th, 9:55 am
