4J Studios released Minecraft for Xbox 360 two years before the game was launched for Sony’s PlayStation 3 and most of the new game’s content became available faster on Microsoft’s console because of this.
That doesn’t mean that the PlayStation 3 players will not get these DLC patches. In fact, 4J Studios confirmed on July 14 that two of the texture packs that Xbox 360 received some time ago will be available for PlayStation 3 on the upcoming update.
With other words, the Fantasy Texture Pack and Cartoon Texture Pack will be finally available for PlayStation 3 as soon as the next update is released. However, 4J Studios didn’t say when the upcoming update will come, but it will happen somewhere after the release of Minecraft on the next-generation consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, which is set for August.
Minecraft on consoles is not so “friendly” when it comes on DLC patches as the PC version is, because the players from Minecraft: PC versions are able to mod the DLC. On Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 consoles, you are able to install only the official DLC such as skin or texture packs.
4J Studios is currently working on getting Minecraft to the next-generation consoles Xbox One and PlayStation 4. Both of the editions of Minecraft are expected to be released later this summer, somewhere in August. If you are playing Minecraft on your Xbox 360 or PlayStation 3, and you plan on getting it on your new console, Xbox One or PlayStation4, then we have some good news for you. The first good news is that you will be able to save the current world of Minecraft from your older console and import it to your next-generation console. The second good news is that you will be able to “upgrade” your Minecraft version from those previous consoles to the next-generation consoles for only 4.99 dollars, instead of paying 19.99 dollars, which is the amount of money paid by the new Minecraft players.
