Minecraft Arrives On PS3 This Week
Mojang has announced that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is coming on December 18th to the PlayStation Store in Europe. Yep, that’s this Wednesday. Two days away. So you’d better get all your sleep and productive activities done by then because Minecraft will be your life from then onwards. It will be arriving on the North American PlayStation Store one day earlier, tomorrow.
The PS3 version will be pretty much identical to Minecraft on the Xbox 360 and Mojang will be developing updates for each in tandem from now on. Although not officially announced, Mojang did hint that they may do PlayStation specific skins.
No price was given for the PlayStation 3 Edition but we expect it will priced similar to the Xbox 360 version, which currently costs €18.99 to download.
Mojang also revealed that Minecraft will be also arriving on PlayStation 4 and PS Vita at some point, though no specifics were given regards release dates. However, they will share more on those editions in the New Year.
