New Minecraft PS3 update adds Uncharted, Killzone, Sly, Heavy Rain skins

Plus a host of new features, including Emeralds, Ender Chests, Zombie Villagers, more

Hi everyone. Title Update 14 has just gone live for Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition. It brings Emeralds, Ender Chests, Zombie Villagers, and more. Cauldrons fill up in the rain! Wolf collars can be dyed! Pigs drop more porkchops! The list goes on.

Two skin packs are also launching. Skin Pack 1 is perfect for hardcore PlayStation fans. It brings a bunch of Sony stalwarts including Nathan “Uncharted” Drake, folks from Heavy Rain, some Killzone dudes, and Sly Cooper. The Battle and Beasts skin pack includes koalas, a Cleopatra look-a-like, various cavemen, and an octopus. It’s the most eclectic pack currently available.

For those of you who aren’t content with the classic Minecraft styling, two new texture packs are also launching. The City Texture pack is perfect for the modernist Minecrafter; it’ll give your creations a more clean, clinical look. The Plastic Texture pack makes things look a lot more, erm, plasticy.

That’s it for now. Have fun!

Will skin packs and/or texture packs be cross buy with the PS4/Vita versions? I’m done with the PS3 version of the game, I’ll only ever play the PS4 version because of it’s improvements or the Vita version for the portability. I don’t wanna invest in packs if they’re going to be locked to one platform.

2.1

Sorry for the lack of info on cross buy/PS4/Vita. I understand that it might be frustrating for you guys, but we don’t want to make false promises until everything is set in cobblestone. :)

Do you have an ETA for the bug fix? ruined voice chat took the fun out of this update.

Nice very great thanks Owen :) But we need more detail about about cross functionality (cross good, cross buy, cross play and cross save) with this “PS3 edition” and “PS4 edition” and of course the most awesome the “PSVita edition”.

4.1

Hi! Thanks for the smiley! Unfortunately we don’t have details to share on those versions… yet. Please see my above comment for an attempt at an explanation. :)

after getting the PS4, I never wanted to turn on my PS3 anymore, so…
please release the PS4 version with cross-save function ASAP!!!!!

Amazing, any chance for Ratchet & Clank and Jak & Daxter as well? : )

Cool idea! It’s out of my hands, but a Parappa skin would be super awesome fun time.

Do you think the PS4/XBO editions will be out this year?

9.1

Yes! :D

Great update.
Can I ask, when will hoppers be added to the PS3 version? I was really looking forward to hoppers as I thought they were coming in 1.4.

seems good having these new skin packs but I think there are much better skins in other editions of Minecraft. I have seen mass effect 3 skins on xbox360 and even better, you can make your own on pc version! Having new skin packs on ps3 is still pretty good though and I think it will be a great hit.
