Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition Out Today

Owen Hill's Avatar Posted by


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!

There are some mistakes on the PS3 version. Sometimes the mic doesnt work or split screen doesnt seem to start. For your mic to work try different people hosting a lobby, and for splitscreen start your game then have your second controller join in.

My kids have their own accounts and we have just bought it for our ps3. It runs great, but we are having trouble understaning how the controllers map to each player’s ‘stuff’. At present first controller to login gets first player’s stuff and second controller gets second players stuff. If we quit the game, and then the second player loads the world again in single player mode, they get first players stuff. This is very annoying for second player! How can a player login with a unique id (so as to pick up their own stuff) without their own psn account? They have created their own user names on the ps3 but minecraft seems to to only recognize psn account holders, and they are too young to have psn accounts.
Anyone got any ideas?

I love this game! But, is it only available for The PlayStation Store, or is it also coming on a game-disc?
Anyway, great work Mojang for bringing my favorite game to PS3! :D

I want to say that im really thankfull to get to play for the first time minecraft. I do only have one question to make about to make. When im at the game menu theres 2 squares that only appears my levels and another that appears “Join Game” but it seems to be empty always. How can i play with other players. Can i only play with friends from my list or is the multiplayer system bugged? Its fun to play along with my brother but i really would like see levels from other creators.

By the way, if anyone want to add me for future playing be my guest. Just add minecraft to the message me and we`ll see how things will get along :]

I got Minecraft and I love it but I get network errors every time I try to load up my online world and get the host exited the game when they really didn’t.

is the PS Vita edition of Minecraft going to be similar to the Pocket Edition version or closer to the console version?

Hotwire0135 said:

I have a old television and I can’t play slept screen but when I played Minecraft on my Newer smart television I can play split screen. Why can’t It be done on my older T.V.?

HOLY CRAP! I was just skimming through the web to try and find how to get a different skin for minecraft pe, WHEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN, I found stuff talking about the PS3 edition. I HAD NO IDEA IT CAME OUT A WEEK AGO! MY EYES FELL OUT MY HEAD AND ROLLED ACROSS THE FLOOR! (Not really.) IM GOING TO EARN MY ALLOWANCE UP AND BUY THIS GAME! (If it’s available on a disk at GameStop, that would be a plus, and I would appreaciate it, a lot.) But until then, I’ll have to play the demo. THANKS MAJONG!

I am curious on whether I can purchase the game on a cd that can be used in the PS3. I don’t have an internet connection for our console so buying and downloading isn’t an option. I’m confused :) My son loves Minecraft and has the PC and pocket edition as well as the Xbox game at his dad’s house. I don’t want to buy any other game console so I am hoping he can play MC on the PS3 soon LOL

I’ve played the PS3 demo and it’s great. But if I can’t cross buy this PS3/PS4 wise, I won’t bother at all. I have a PS4 and only 2 of my friends have PS4’s currently. All the rest have PS3’s. I’d like to fill up my next gen library and plau with my other friends.

I have been hoping for this for Playstation. :D

Now the only thing I want to know is how long will updates take? I can’t wait for them, but mostly for the creating your own skin.

I bought the game but I own 3 systems so I wont have to unplug it and take it with me to my girlfriends house and my brothers house. I want to play it at my girlfriends house but I already downloaded it at my house and my brothers house and Im only allowed two downloads? Is there a way to change this without having to repurchase the client?
