PlayStation 3 owners, the wait for you to start creating in Minecraft is almost over, and it will be coming sooner than you all think.
Yup, that’s right, Minecraft will indeed be released this week via the PlayStation Store. North American gamers will get it first tomorrow, December 17th whilst here in Europe we will get the game on Wednesday, December 18th.
A price, or whether it will be part of the cross-buy feature has not yet been revealed. Speaking to the PlayStation Blog, Mojang’s Owen Hill stated:
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. 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.
