Will Minecraft ever find its way to the PS3?

#1 Posted by Hizang (8534 posts) -

So Minecraft as of now is on PC and 360 only, but as in the past games like Mass Effect, Limbo, Bioshock have all been just 360 only and then later put on PS3.

Do you think Minecraft will manage to get on PS3?

Honestly not sure. If there hasn't been an exclusivity deal made between Mojang and Microsoft then it is entirely possible, though they would have to figure out somehow if enough people want it to make the development worth it.

I doubt it. I'm almost sure it's Microsoft exclusive and even if it wasn't I don't think there'd be much money in it.

It's on Xperia play so maybe.

Don't see the point of it though, or the 360 version for that matter.

Given the amount of input Microsoft had in terms of porting it over and the fact they used it as part of their Arcade NEXT promotion I find it pretty hard to imagine they'd bring it to PS3. 
 
Still, we don't know whether an exclusivity agreement was signed or not so anything's possible I guess.

It's not impossible. Stuff like Limbo and Braid both made it to PS3, so it might make it to PS3 in a year or so.

This. Altho I will say the crafting help I saw in the QL is a good edition for newbies looking to get in and good solution to not having to stare at the wiki to make stuff.

Yeah, I'm almost positive that it'll appear at some point in the future. It's made it's way to everything else so far! Once their deal with Microsoft is done, I'm sure they'll do it.

I do hope so, it would be just so much fun.

Depends how much money MS gave Mojang.

The developer confirmed last year that is an Xbox exclusive. It is being published by Microsoft Studios.

Yes but that's what got said about Limbo, Braid, Mass Effect fucking Deadly Premontion. So there could be a chance, I'd even guess that more of the PS3 Crou would be interested in it.

I still don't see why you wouldn't get it on PC. It runs on my laptop just fine, a two-year-old laptop with Intel HD graphics at that. And it runs on my parent's computer, which was bought four years ago.
