|Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition|
Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition, is an edition of Minecraft available on the PlayStation Network. It was announced at Gamescom 2013 and was released on December 18, 2013 as DLC for €18.99/$19.99/£12.99. In April, it was announed that a disc copy will be released sometime in Summer 2014 for the aformentioned prices. Disc copies are already available in some countries, and are not the most recent version. The current version is numbered 1.06, but it has features added after 1.06 in the PC edition.
Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition was released with all the up to date content as on other console versions and future updates will be developed in tandem. Split-screen support for up to four players, online multiplayer for up to eight, Creative mode, Survival mode, and a bundle of Trophies are supported. Texture packs have also been released, with a total of five currently available (including the standard texture).
- Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is almost identical to the Xbox 360 Edition. However, villagers can be told apart as the blacksmith, farmer, etc. This feature is not in the Xbox 360 edition yet.
- It also comes with the festive skin pack, a skin pack which features Christmas related skins. This skin pack was added to the Xbox 360 edition earlier.
- The host privileges include the capacity to fly.
- This version of Minecraft has more trophies (achievements) to unlock than the Xbox 360 edition, such as: Sniper Duel (kill a skeleton with a bow from 50 meters away), The End? (Go in to the end), The End. (Kill the Ender dragon), Return to sender (Hit a fire charge back at a ghast), Into fire ("Kill a Blaze and make it drop its rod" actually pick up a Blaze Rod), DIAMONDS! (Acquire diamonds with your iron tools), Local brewery, (Brew a potion [Awkward potion counts]), Enchanter (Construct an Enchantment Table). No achievements can be earned in worlds created or saved in Creative Mode or with host privileges active.
- All copies bought on a disc are the same version, and not the latest one.
- The Nether is not as effective for fast travel in the PS3 edition as in the PC edition, as one block of travel in The Nether is 3 blocks of travel in the overworld in the PS3 edition, but it is 8 blocks of travel in the overworld in the PC edition. This may be because the small world size of the PS3 edition causes The Nether to be too small if it is 1/8 the size of the overworld.
