Minecraft Updates Releasing Soon for Console Versions

Look forward to both PS3 and Xbox 360 updates in the near future.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition, despite being released months after the 360 version, is staying true to keeping up with its brother. Mojang and 4J Studios recently submitted their latest PS3 update, Update 1.05, and Xbox 360 update, Title Update 15, for QA testing, and here's what players can look forward to.


Firstly, PS3 Edition will be getting a whole slew of characters skins from some well known Sony franchises, such as: Nathan Drake from Uncharted, Killzone, Heavy Rain, and Sly Cooper. Another Skin Pack called the "Battle and Beasts Pack" will also included, but with much less iconic characters from the media. Things like cavemen, koala, octopus, and more will be available. We're glad to see more options here for the PS3 community!

Secondly, according to Owen Hill of Mojang, all new gameplay tweeks and features will be brought to the table. Things like Zombie Villagers, the ability to color animal collars, Ender Chests, emeralds, pigs dropping more uncooked meat, etc. Additionally, certain bugs like the common voice chat problems players have reported having will be corrected. For a much deeper list of fixes being introduced in the update, please read the list below (via MinecraftForum):
