Minecraft to Hit PlayStation 3 Tomorrow

Minecraft
Mojang

Mojang has announced that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be released tomorrow, prompting players to break blocks and build works of art.

The announcement was made on the PlayStation Blog by Owen Hill from Mojang. The PlayStation 3 Edition will become available to download straight from the PlayStation Store tomorrow, Dec. 17. There are no dates yet for the PlayStation 4 and Vita Editions, but we can expect to see them sometime next year.

The post also included a bit of a Q and A, in which Hill answered a few questions about the differences between this version of Minecraft and all of the previously released versions:

Q: Does Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature everything from the other versions of 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.

There’s no word on how much it will cost, but can you really put a price on the amount of productivity that will be lost when you start playing?
