Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition Getting Physical Release

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition has been available to purchase and download on the PlayStation Store for months now.  However, not everyone loves digital, and they would much rather have a physical release.  Well fret no longer lovers of retail goods, Sony and Mojang have confirmed that a physical release of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is on its way.

Mojang’s Owen Hill made the announcement on the PS Blog.  Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is coming to retail May 16, and will include all of the features one would come to expect from Minecraft.

“Following on the successful launch, we’re pleased to confirm that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available on retail disc starting May 16th. That means you can go into a real-life store, buy it, and then take it home in a little bag,” Owen Hill writes.

“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.”

Hill also gave us an update on the PS4 and PS Vita versions of Minecraft.  The team at 4J Studios are still hard at work on both versions.  More news concerning PS4 and PS Vita will be announced at a later date.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is available at retail May 16.  Check out the box art below:
