Minecraft PS3 Edition arriving sooner than next-gen versions

4J Studios announced that it is currently focused on launching the PlayStation 3 version of Mojang's Minecraft, with ports for next-gen consoles being put on the back burner for the time being.

"We're hard at work getting Minecraft: PS3 Edition ready for testing just now," the studio tweeted. "The other platforms [and Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition's Title Update 14] will be later."

4J is developing Minecraft: Xbox One Edition for Microsoft's upcoming console, along with versions for the PlayStation 4 and PS Vita. Release dates for these new ports have not been announced.
