With the release of Minecraft for Xbox 360 and now the recent news that the Xbox 360 edition has reached 3 million downloads, PS3 fans have been griping that they want Minecraft for Playstation too.
There has been no official announcement yet by either Playstation or Mojang if this is indeed going to be a possibility. There have been however some discussions on the Playstation website that lead us to believe that this may become a reality. Maybe its just wishful thinking on our part but Minecraft has been expanding to other platforms such as the Xbox and mobile so we are hoping that Minecraft for Playstation is next. There have been other rumors though that Xbox has exclusivity. These types of arrangements are not uncommon so this wouldn’t surprise us either.
There has also been a recent push for a new console in the making named Ouya, which Minecraft will be on and Notch invested in. If Ouya hits the market, having it on XBox, PS3 or any of the other walled garden console may not be such a huge deal. Gamers will be able to enjoy all of their Indie games on the big screen running the open source Ouya console.
For those that really want to see the game come to the PlayStation, we should let Mojang know. The more requests they get, the better chance they will make a PS3 version. Leave your comments below letting us and Mojang know if you would like to see Minecraft for PS3.
