The extensive console exclusivity period Microsoft enjoyed with Minecaft on Xbox 360 is coming to a close, as the first-person world-building game digs in on PlayStation 3 tomorrow. Like its 360 brethren, Minecraft on PS3 is limited by the console’s minuscule RAM — the procedurally-generated worlds you’ll explore are just a wee bit smaller than what’s possible on a computer.
Of course, PlayStation 3 isn’t the last stop for the Minecraft train: Vita, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One versions are all expected at some point in 2014. It’s unclear whether the PlayStation version of Minecraft will experience the same flood of add-on, PlayStation-specific content as DLC post-launch, but developer Mojang says that, “would be cool!” We can’t help but agree. As far as price is concerned, Mojang and Sony aren’t saying; we’re gonna take a wild guess that it’ll be about the same as on 360, where it’s $20.
Thanks to Engadget.com for this awesome insight.
Sony has made it where your many hours playing games on your PS3 and Vita were tangibly worth something in a series of auctions dubbed … “Bid for Greatness”…
The catch is that once you bid trophies, they are committed, and you can’t use them on anything else, so you have to be smart. However, this does not mean that you actually lose you trophies. You still keep the trophies you bid, you just can’t keep using them over an over to pad your odds of winning. After all, you still have to have some salt to rub on your friends wounds.
The list of scheduled auctions and a video showing off the items are below.
