PlayStation 3 gamers rejoice: Your Minecraft fix isn’t far away, with Mojang announcing today that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is set to hit consoles from Wednesday December 18th. Depending on your timezone, that could be as soon as tomorrow!
Developer spokesperson Owen Hill explains:
Does Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition feature everything from the other versions of Minecraft?
Minecraft: PlayStation 3 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.
Will Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition feature DLC texture packs and skins?
Downloadable skins and texture packs will be available from PlayStation Store soon after release.
Will there be Sony-specific content?
Sony-specific skins and texture packs would be cool! Fingers crossed, eh?
Will Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition feature Remote Play/compatibility with the Vita/PS4 editions?
We don’t know yet, sorry. We’ll let you know as soon as we do.
Does Herobrine feature in Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition?
The “Vita/PS4 editions” referenced are currently in development at Mojang, but we don’t yet have a release date for either (stay tuned, we’re promised more news in 2014!).
If you’ve never played Minecraft, this is your chance. It’s already sold more than 30 million copies around the world – including on Xbox 360 and PC – and now it’s the PS3’s turn.
