Sony Announces Minecraft Hits PS3 December 17th in North America

17w ago - Mojang's Owen HIll announced today via Sony's blog that Minecraft hits PS3 on December 17th, 2013 in North America.

To quote: Season's greetings! Owen from Mojang here. I have some exciting news that you might be interested in. It's about Minecraft - a game that's sold over 30 million copies to date. Minecraft is a game about breaking and placing blocks.

At first, you'll probably build simple structures to protect against nocturnal monsters. Later on, you might work with your friends to create wonderful, imaginative things.

It can also be about adventuring or watching the sun rise over a blocky ocean. It's pretty. Brave players battle terrible things in The Nether, which is more scary that pretty. You can also visit a land of mushrooms if it sounds more like your cup of tea.

Minecraft: PlayStation 3 Edition will be available to download from PSN on December 17th in North America.

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition and Minecraft: PS Vita Edition are also being developed, but we don't have release dates yet. Expect them sometime next year.

I've received a few questions concerning the PS3 edition over the past few months, so let's clear them up before I get thrown off the blog...

Q: Does Minecraft: PS3 Edition feature everything from...
 

New Sony PlayStation Releases for December 17th, 2013

18w ago - Sony Social Media Specialist Ryan Clements is here with the new PlayStation releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

What better way to skirt the mind's boundaries than to plunge into the colorful and cascading world of Flow? This week sees a few familiar favorites kindle new life on PlayStation.

One of the first games developed by thatgamecompany, Flow, emerges onto PS4 this week in all its surreal glory. This unique and beautiful experience made a mark on PlayStation gamers when it first launched on PS3 several years ago, and now enjoys a visual enhancement on PS4.

Players control an aquatic organism and dive deep into a layered environment, surviving hostile creatures along the way.

But if you'd rather plunge into hazardous mines instead, perhaps you'll take an interest in the newest version of Terraria, which launches on PS Vita this week. The well-loved sandbox game invites players to explore, collect, battle, and build - solo, or with friends.

There's much more coming to PlayStation this week, so head below for a complete list of inbound games, and enjoy the Drop!

18w ago - Gaijin Games Associate Producer Dant Rambo posted up a video today announcing that Bit Trip's Runner2 is coming to PS Vita on December 17th, 2013.

To quote: Greetings, current and future best friends. For those of you unfamiliar with our humble studio, we're the folks behind the Bit.Trip series, as well as the recently released Bit.Trip Presents... Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien.

We also invented the cheese-flavored cough drop, but due to a pending lawsuit, aren't permitted to speak of that.

Since releasing Runner2 for console and PC, we've had countless people ask us about a potential Vita version. This was, as you can surely imagine, very flattering. We were stoked that people enjoyed the game as much as they did, and even more stoked that they wanted to see it on additional platforms (I promise not to use "stoked" again in this post).

This inspired us to give it our all with the Vita version, and to make it just as good as its console counterparts. As it turns out, this wasn't such a difficult task. As any Vita owner can confirm, it's an incredibly powerful platform.





Whether this will be your first time playing the game or you're a seasoned vet, rest assured that no expense...

18w ago - Housemarque Community Manager Tommaso De Benetti shared a video today announcing that Furmins rolls to PlayStation Vita on December 17th, 2013.

Below are the details and video trailer, to quote: Hi there, Tommaso De Benetti from Housemarque and Alexey Menshikov from Beatshapers speaking. After a minor Q&A setbacks caused by a prank our little furry friends conjured up, we are finally able to confirm the North American release of Furmins on PS Vita!

In Furmins, players will attempt to guide the eponymous and loveable creatures across fiendishly designed levels by rearranging a variety of items in real time with well-coordinated precision. Strategically placed items create pathways and physical chain reactions that guide the Furmins to a basket at the end of the level.





Wondering what happened to the Furmins Kingdom to justify a whole gaming adventure? Here's a quick overview:

The Furmins are a happy race of creatures living a happy, peaceful existence.

Things were rolling along great until the fateful day their benevolent (yet rather large)...

... King fell asleep, rolled over a river forming an impromptu dam and blocked their flow of water!

When it comes to puzzle...
