The PS3 edition of Minecraft
was released through PSN in December. Since then, the game's been downloaded over 1.5 million times by players. Minecraft
creators have decided that they want to reach an even wider audience by releasing the game on Blu-ray on May 16th.
"That means you can go into a real-life store, buy it, and then take it home in a little bag," said Mojang's Owen Hill on the PlayStation Blog
. "It comes with all the features you’d expect from the console versions of Minecraft, along with everything that came with update 14
, including Emeralds, Ender Chests, potatoes, and more."
4J Studios, the team that made the PS3 version of Minecraft
, is also bringing the game to other platforms. There's no release date for the PS4 or PS Vita versions yet, though.
"Sorry for the delay, but making Minecraft happen is serious business," Hill said.
4J's workload includes the Xbox One edition as well. Supposedly that version is really close
