Minecraft PS3 Edition Release Date Announced To Be December 17


Minecraft recently sold a total of 10 million copies on the Xbox 360 version alone, but the game’s overall sales will certainly get a boost come December 17 as that is when the PlayStation 3 version of the game will be released. Minecraft’s console developer, 4J Studios, announced just last month the PS3 version of the game would be made available prior to the next-gen version. Currently, the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions of Minecraft are still in development and will be released next year, although it’s unknown if it’ll be cross-compatible or if remote play will be an option.

The PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft is expected to be “pretty much identical” to other console versions of the game, namely the Xbox 360 version since that’s currently the only other console the game is available on. DLC and texture packs for Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 are said to be available on PSN soon after the game’s release.

The announcement for the PS3 version of Minecraft didn’t mention the price of the game, although if its release on the Xbox 360 is any indication, we think it’s safe to say you should expect the Minecraft to cost at least $20.
