2w ago - Mojang's Owen Hill is here with details on the latest Minecraft PS3 update, which adds Uncharted, Killzone and Heavy Rain skins.

To quote: Hi everyone. The latest update to Minecraft PS3 brings Emeralds, Ender Chests, Zombie Villagers, and more. Cauldrons fill up in the rain! Wolf collars can be dyed! Pigs drop more porkchops! The list goes on.

Two skin packs are also available. Skin Pack 1 is perfect for hardcore PlayStation fans. It brings a bunch of Sony stalwarts including Nathan "Uncharted" Drake, folks from Heavy Rain, some Killzone dudes, and Sly Cooper.

The Battle and Beasts skin pack includes koalas, a Cleopatra look-a-like, various cavemen, and an octopus. It's the most eclectic pack currently available.

For those of you who aren't content with the classic Minecraft styling, two new texture packs are also launching. The City Texture pack is perfect for the modernist Minecrafter; it'll give your creations a more clean, clinical look. The Plastic Texture pack makes things look a lot more, erm, plasticy.

That's it for now. Have fun!
