Originally, the game was intended to be a launch title for the PS4, but now PS3 users will get to experience the game first.
4J Studios confirmed the news by posting on twitter, “We’re hard at work getting Minecraft: PS3 Edition ready for testing just now. The other platforms & TU14 will be later.”
The developers also posted that there is not a confirmed release date for the PS4, Xbox One, or PS Vita.
The PS4 and Xbox One editions will be able to support bigger worlds and more multiplayers, according to a report from the Examiner. The report also suggests that the change in gaming consoles may have been a business strategy to get the game out on the device that “had the most users first.”
