It seems Developers 4J Studios just loves teasing fans of the survival and building cube game, Minecraft by bringing out big news today. Unfortunately, its not the news most of us want to know, but still news is news so here we go. The PlayStation 3 version of Mojang’s Minecraft will be available on disc at retail May 14 in Europe, the studio announced today.
It will be released May 16 in North America.
Developer 4J Studios launched Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition on PlayStation Network in mid-December, and has sold more than 1.5 million copies since then. The retail version will include all content updates through title update 14, which was released on PS3 last month; that brought Emeralds, Ender Chest, potatoes and more to Minecraft. Update 15, which is the most recent one, is not yet available on PS3.
According to Mojang, 4J is still working on the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita versions of the sandbox game. The Xbox 360 Edition of Minecraft has been available at retail since April 2013 and has seen itself in the UK top 10 ever since.
