Minecraft PS3 Retail Edition Arrives May 16th

Following its success in the Playstation Store, a retail version of Minecraft is expected next month.

With around 35 million lifetime sales on the PC/Mac, XBox 360 and mobile devices, Minecraft has become a huge success in the casual gaming market. That’s mighty impressive given it started as one man’s simple java game.

Since its release last year in the Playstation Store, sales have gone up another 1.5 million from eager PS3 fans looking to play this unnaturally addictive game. The retail edition will include everything up to update 14, which puts it one version behind the rest so expect a game update as soon as it’s launched.

On the official Playstation Blog, Owen Hill of Mojang reassures players that a PS4 and PS Vita version of Minecraft is in the works but didn’t give an exact timeframe to expect it.
