Minecraft Horse Update hits PS3 & PS Vita, PS4 update release date still unknown News  Minecraft

The console versions of Minecraft have been recently updated.  While the updates arrived on Xbox One and Xbox 360 first, PlayStation Minecraft players have been waiting for theirs.

Today the latest update has completed testing for the PlayStation 3 and PS Vita versions, and 4J Studios says those are out now.  As for the PlayStation 4 version, “No news yet from Sony America on the PS4 update,” according to the developer’s latest tweets.

You can find the full list of changes from the last update for the PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft here.  For the PS Vita change list, head here.

As you’ll find in the update notes, there’s a lot of new content included in this latest Minecraft update, though the biggest new feature is the addition of horse mobs, and the ability to tame and ride the creatures.

While these PlayStation updates have been out in Europe for a little while, the North American Minecraft players will need to wait a little longer for their PS4 update.

  • Happy holidays from 4J!

    Seems like a big, fat “fuck you” from 4J to PS4 players this christmas. Thanks 4J!

    • Mattrx

      It’s Sony’s cert team in America to blame for the delay, not 4j.

      • Ta’i Ngatokorua

        Exactly. Us PS4 users in New Zealand have had it a while. I assumed everyone had it by now :P

    • Dave

      Well since microsoft bought minecraft thats whats gonna happen

      • Brizz Tgp

        The hold up is with the Sony team and not Microsoft. They are still testing it for the PS4.

      • meddle0ne

        If it wasn’t for Microsoft neither console would be getting these three updates this soon.

  • Darryl

    Will it be out this year?

  • Zydragon

    I already have the horse update for the PS4… played it earlier today!

    • Darryl

      Are you in Europe?

  • ?????

    I played it on Xbox. They added in stained clay, block of redstone/coal, horses, wither, etc.

  • Robert Mott

    Scared now. Said to someone I bet the update would be on Christmas, and it was!

    • Robert Mott

        • Robert Mott

          • Darryl

          • jess

            Playstation and xbox got hacked today. Both psn and xbl are down

          • lol

            DDoSed. Not a hack.


        its not working for me unless I am on the app on my phone. Still get the notifications on my PS Vita, but unable to load the network feature applications on there. Just comes up with errors.

  • David

    how did u get it

  • Isaiah

  • Ryan Olivares

    Sony consoles are not a priority. Remember MS owns Mojang now

  • hayley_4542

    Ok so I am like crying right now bc there is no horses in minecrafg PS3

  • Dante Dravon

    You would think that sony would want to pump out the update , considering the mass amounts of ps4s that kids will be opening today

  • meddle0ne

    Ha ha, Xbox has had it for over a week. 1080p, 1080p!

  • Louis Conti

    Why doesn’t 4j make sure its released at the same time in all countries. I’m from the US but I play with friends from Australia and I always have to wait a week for the update to actually play with them.

    • Ry

      Keep in mind they can send it out, but Microsoft and Sony need to test it and everything before being released in each region. After they’re done (whatever they do) it gets prepared for release.

  • eeyore0274

    The update is only hitting our xbox 360
    now. 12/27.

  • someguy-_-

    My daughter has been waiting for this update for a long time… this is BS.

  • Dave

    Shut up you stupid ps4 or ps any thing players there dumb and slow and annoying Xbox 360 is way better and stop cussing

  • Peony Fong

    It’s because PS4 has much more data than all of the machines so they did PS4 last . And if there is more data it makes it harder to update so it’s last.

  • wasup396
