Minecraft to Release on PlayStation 3 This Week

PlayStaion 3 owners now have reason to cancel their social engagements and prepare themselves for hours of crafting goodness, as developer Mojang has announced that Minecraft will be releasing on the system Tuesday, December 17th.

The PS3 version is the same as all the other console versions, although unique skins and texture packs are said to be coming in the future.

Minecraft has enjoyed great success across many platforms, including PC, Xbox 360, and iOS devices. Now that it’s coming to an entirely new audience, it’s likely the game will sell a near-bajillion copies on PlayStation 3 as well, and will probably repeat history once again on both the Vita and PlayStation 4 versions coming soon.
