Good news, everyone! Mojang and Sony have announced that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available from the PlayStation Store beginning tomorrow, December 17. If you’re holding out for Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition or Minecraft: PS Vita Edition, I’ve got some bad news… they won’t be releaesd until sometime in 2014.
According to Owen Hill of Mojang (via the PlayStation Blog), it’s currently unknown if the PS3 Edition of Minecraft will include a Remote Play option or PS4/Vita cross-platform compatibility. Mojang also isn’t sure if they’ll be able to offer Minecraft as a Cross-Buy download.
What they do know is that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition will be virtually identical. And now that the game is available on both platforms, future updates will be developed in tandem. Skin Packs and Texture Packs will also be released for the PS3 Edition sometime in the future.
