Owen Hill of Mojang answered some of the questions relating to comparisons between Minecraft Xbox 360 Edition and Minecraft PlayStation 3 Edition on PlayStation Blog.
He was asked if the PlayStation Edition will have all the features that are available on the other versions of the game.

They're pretty much identical to play, and will be developed in tandem from now on," Hill said, adding that after its release, it will also get DLC skins and texture packs from PSN. He further explained that having PlayStation specific skins will be cool but players will have to keep their fingers crossed.
