PS3 Minecraft goes to the disco

By

1.5 million Minecrafters have downloaded the game on the PlayStation 3.  Now offline PS3 owners get a chance to plumb the depths of creativity.


PAL region PS3 owning Minecraft fans get to do a little dance today as the phenomenon hits yet another form with the disc release of the game.

Having already been downloaded more than 1.5 million times on the PlayStation Network since the end of the year, the game is already well established, as it is on rival Xbox 360, on the PS3 game console.

Created by independent Swedish developer studio Mojang, Minecraft was officially released in 2011 with an overwhelming reception from the gaming community. To date, more than 14 million people have bought the game and crafted everything from boats to entire cities. Due to the versatility and customisation the title offers, fans span from the hard-core gaming community to a younger school audience.


Build, craft and explore a world with the freedom to do whatever you want. Dig down into the unknown depths or build incredible structures, from humble homes to grand cityscapes. Decide to go it alone or bring your friends along for the ride in eight-player online multiplayer and four-player split screen modes. The only limit is your imagination!


The new PS3 Edition will come loaded with all the features you'd expect from the console versions of Minecraft, along with everything that came with the most recent update of the game (update 14), including Emeralds, Ender Chests, potatoes and more.


In addition to the upcoming PS3 disc release, Minecraft will also be available on PlayStation®4 and PlayStation®Vita later this year.
