Christmas is coming early, PS3 players!

We can now confirm that Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition will be available to download this Wednesday, December 18th from the Playstation Store (if you’re based in the EU). Expect it to cost about the same as the Xbox 360 version.

I’ve received a few questions about the launch of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition from you guys, so here are some of the most common queries:

Does Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition feature everything from the other versions of Minecraft?
Minecraft: PlayStation 3 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.

Will Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition feature DLC texture packs and skins?
Downloadable skins and texture packs will be available from PlayStation Store soon after release.

Will there be Sony-specific content?
Sony-specific skins and texture packs would be cool! Fingers crossed, eh?

Will Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition feature Remote Play/compatibility with the Vita/PS4 editions?
We don’t know yet, sorry. We’ll let you know as soon as we do.

Will there be a day-one patch for Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition?
Yes! We recommend you download it!

Does Herobrine feature in Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition?
Probably not.

That’s it for now. We hope you’re just as excited about playing Minecraft on PS3 as we are. Merry Christmas/Nadolig LLawen!
