Minecraft on console is now closer to the PC build than ever before

It's been gradually updating on consoles but, as confirmed by Mojang's Owen Hill, Minecraft is now the closest it's ever been to the PC version thanks to version 1.88. PS4, Xbox One, PS3 and Xbox 360 owners now have their biggest update ever which adds a terrifyingly huge list of new features.

Included in the update are new items for all modes that include the addition of many variations on a theme of rabbit (foot, meat, hide), new spawn eggs to create mobs in creative mode and a whole host of new block types, mobs and biomes. There's also a massive list of feature updates that include being able to fish for treasure and the 'rebalancing of anvils.' For some seriously hardcore Minecraft reading see the full list on the blog here.

The update will be coming to PlayStation Vita which will arrive in the next couple of days and will eventually arrive on the new Wii U version at some point next year.
