Why do we love Minecraft so much? In a word: Pixels. Pixels are where video games are born. They are the ultimate starting point of thousands of amazing games. And Minecraft chose to take those little bits and build a world as vibrant and magical as anything you've ever played, without spending too much time on extreme graphics or hours of cutscenes. They focused on fun and exploration.
You can build your first Minecraft world in the Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition or the Minecraft PS3 Edition. In fact, you can buy Minecraft on the Xbox 360 or PS3 new or save a little bit and go pre-owned. Either way, you'll end up in a world that has inspired dozens of Minecraft games. But none of them come close to the original. Play Minecraft now and clear your schedule for the next few weeks. You'll need them.
Minecraft PS3 Edition has an available release date of May 16, 2014.
