Independent developer Mojang Studios has today revealed that their blocky building title Minecraft will be making its way to the PlayStation 3 platform come December 18th, bringing even more potential to build awesome creations or just punch some trees for wood.
Season’s greetings! Owen from Mojang here. I have some exciting news that you might be interested in. It’s about Minecraft – a game that’s sold over 30 million copies to date. Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks. At first, you’ll probably build simple structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. Later on, you might work with your friends to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It’s pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary that pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.
A short Q&A was also offered on the PlayStation EU blog, revealing that the PlayStation 3 version comes with everything present in other console versions, with the studio now working on all console versions in tandem. Support for downloadable skins and texture packs will be available from the PlayStation Network soon after release, though Mojang declined to give any date.

For eager builders waiting for the PlayStation 4 or the PlayStation Vita versions, Mojang did state that these titles are still under-development, but to expect them "some time next year."

After years of chopping lumber, the peasants want a go at digging holes in the ground.

Is minecraft less bloated on PS3/Xbox? or is it just as Java dependant (but behind the scenes).

How do you host servers?
and until the console editions can connect to their inter-computer counterparts, why is anyone bothering on console?
