The PlayStation 2 came out in March 2000, with Minecraft officially going public on PC on May 17, 2009. The game wasn’t released on consoles until December of 2013, and by then Sony had already released the PlayStation 4. The game was also released for PS3, since the PS4 had only came out a month prior. PS2 is from over a decade ago, it came out in March, 2000. Thats really old. AOL dialup was still the way of getting on the internet. Minecraft did not even exist yet, since it only came out in 2010ish. Minecraft is a relatively new game. There is nothing at all that will get it to play on the old console.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is the PlayStation 3 edition of Minecraft, developed by 4J Studios for Mojang Studios.[4]Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition is the first edition of Minecraft to be released on a console manufactured by Sony.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition was announced at Sony Interactive Entertainment's exhibit at Gamescom 2013, along with the PlayStation 4, and PlayStation Vita, and was officially released on the PlayStation Store on Tuesday, December 17, 2013 in North America and Wednesday, December 18, 2013 in Europe, for $19.99, £12.85, or €18.47n.[5][6] It was originally announced that Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition would no longer be available for digital purchase due to the PlayStation Store closing on the platform on July 2, 2021, however this statement was later retracted.[7]


As of 1.84, PlayStation 3 Edition has not received new feature updates, including Village & Pillage,Buzzy Bees, and the Nether Update that other editions of Minecraft received.

Although the PlayStation 3 console has been discontinued with all the other Legacy Console Editions, Playstation 3 Edition continued to receive feature updates until the release of Update Aquatic.[8]

Retail Disc[edit]

On April 16, 2014, Sony announced the retail disc version of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition, which was released on May 14, 2014 in Europe and on May 16, 2014 in North America. The game otherwise is identical to the downloadable version. Features such as buying or downloading content on the PlayStation Network are the same for both versions and they both updated at the same time.[9][10]

The gameplay is identical to Xbox 360 Edition.


Skin packs[edit]

4J Studios planned to produce Skin Packs as downloadable content. Each Skin Pack was said to include 40+ skins to choose from. The first Skin Pack for PlayStation 3, Festive Skin Pack was released on the same day when Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition was released which was December 17, 2013.

Skin Pack 1 was released on March 27, 2014.

The Battle & Beasts Skin Pack was also released on March 27, 2014.

Skin Pack 2 and Battle & Beasts Skin Pack 2 were released in May 2016.

Cross compatibility with PS Vita[edit]

Through Sony's 'Cross Buy' initiative, owners of PlayStation 3 Edition are able to download PlayStation Vita Edition at no additional cost. Since the PS Vita Edition is based on the PS3 Edition, saves on PS3 Edition are compatible with PS Vita Edition and vice versa.

This does not apply to PlayStation 4 Edition. It is possible to do a one-way save transfer from PS3 to PS4. However, since February 25, 2016, there is no longer a discount on PS4 Edition for owners of PS3 Edition. As of April 15, 2020, it is no longer possible to transfer saves between PS3s, between PS Vitas and from PS3/PS Vita to PS4.[11]


Note: As with the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One trailer, this one was also created by Hat Films.[12]

Adding friends in Minecraft is very simple, but considering there are two different versions of the game, it can be easy to get confused. If you want to add friends from different platforms, you have to ensure that you are all playing the same game.

Minecraft Bedrock Edition is the version that is available on PC, Xbox, PlayStation, mobile, and the Nintendo Switch. If you have Minecraft Java, you will not be able to utilize crossplay.

To add friends from different platforms, you have to add them via their Microsoft account. Players who do not already have a Microsoft account will have to create one. If you have an Xbox account, that will work as well.

Adding cross-platform friends

Minecraft Ps2 Trailer

  • Enter the pause menu and click on the “invite friends” tab on the right side of the screen
  • Once you are there, it will show you available friends on your current platform
  • From here you will be given the option to find cross-platform friends
  • This will take you to a search bar where you will enter your friends Microsoft account Gamertag and send a friend request

Once you send a friend invite to their Microsoft account you can get started exploring your own worlds or a shared realm. Keep in mind you will have to enable crossplay when creating a world and inviting your friends.
