Money, money, money

Minecraft creator Markus ‘Notch’ Persson’s bank balance may already be fit to burst, but the Swedish programmer’s about to receive another injection of cash courtesy of the impending physical release of the construction simulation’s PlayStation 3 Edition. Set to tunnel into stores on 14th May in Europe and 16th May in North America, the package will ship with the popular indie title’s most recent update pre-installed, including emeralds, ender chests, potatoes, and more.

In addition to announcing the boxed build-‘em-up, developer Mojang also confirmed that the title has now sold an incredible 1.5 million copies on the PlayStation Store since its launch last year.

Moreover, it reiterated that the recently teased PlayStation 4 and Vita iterations are still deep into development. “Sorry for the delay, but making Minecraft happen is serious business,” stressed Owen Hill on the PlayStation Blog. The financial rewards are outrageous, though...

Don't worry PS4 and the forgotten offspring of PlayStation: PS Vita will get physical releases too, if that image and tweet is anything to go by.

Or they could just release it and watch the money roll in regardless.http://img4.wikia.nocookie.net/__cb20060721101458/uncyclopedia/images/0/0d/Prints_money.gif

Makes more sense for vita physical than anything else, its already been on ps3 for ages and I can see ps4 owners forking out for a physical copy although no doubt it will actually be cheaper or equal to the PSN version. It should be PS plus for ps3 really.

@FullbringIchigo I think i'm with you, just installed Peace Walker on Vita and i'm being notified of having less than 40 mb available. I would upgrade memory cards but its not worth the price.

@Big-Boss yeah they are too expensive, still the Vita is a great system but the price of memory cards is holding it back a bit

still I don't really like digital downloads anyway I always prefer a physical product I can hold
