This morning 4J Studios sent out the latest update for Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition
. The PS3 version of the building game should get a similar update very soon.
4J sent the update to Microsoft and Sony a week ago
for testing. It seems that Microsoft was able to certify the patch a bit faster than their rival:

The PS3 version of the patch is mostly the same as its Xbox 360 equivalent. There are a couple small differences, though. The PS3 update, also dubbed Patch 1.05, fixes problems plaguing voice chat on that platform. It also corrects the "double exit sound" players experienced when leaving the crafting and anvil menus.
Title Update 15 follows closely on the heels of Title Update 14/Patch 1.04. The earlier patch was more substantial, adding nearly 30 new objects to the game world. It also enabled players to trade with villagers or dye their wolves' collars. Check the patch notes
for the full list of changes from that update. The PS3 version of TU14 was accompanied by multiple DLC packs, including a PlayStation-exclusive skin pack
