The lights are on
The digital download version of Minecraft came out for the PlayStation 3 at the end of last year, and in a little bit the disc-based edition will be hitting brick-and-mortar stores.
The game will be on store shelves on May 16, and will include all the features in the Xbox 360 edition, including Update 14 (carrots on sticks for riding pigs, pumpkin pie, fixes, etc.).
Console Minecraft developers 4J Studios also say that work continues on the PS4 and Vita versions of the game, but an official release date has not been announced.

Our Take:It sounds anti-climactic, but Minecraft's reach is so deep and broad that it's no small thing to make it accessible for your average person – who likely isn't into downloading games.
