Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition

Details are slim, but the PS3 version should be similar to the 360 version.

Mojang's phenomenal 'Minecraft' was an impressive success on the PC and a sandbox crafting title and as randomly generated survival titles, especially for a completely independent game. The 360 version catapulted the game into the mainstream with young players pouring entire summers into the game. And now Mojang has announced that the long-awaiting PS3 version is releasing this week.

The PS3 version, referred to as 'Minecraft: PS3 Edition,' is being described as coming "with everything present in the other console versions." After the 360 version, other console versions include PS4 and PS Vita versions, as well as a Xbox One version, which are all in development with an unspecified release date.

Mojang has shared a few answers to questions about the PS3 version:

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