Minecraft coming to PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One in August *update*


Mojang and 4J Studios have confirmed Minecraft on PS4, PS Vita and Xbox One will arrive in August.

In addition, the game will include all the features from the latest editions and If you already own the game on Xbox One or PS4 then you'll be able to upgrade to the new version for a small fee.

You can import saves from PS3 to PS4 / Xbox 360 to Xbox One, although can't do this the other way around.



Here's the full details:

Xbox One

Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will be released on Xbox Live Marketplace in August. It brings significantly bigger worlds and a greater draw distance than Xbox 360 Edition.
It will include all the features from the most recent Xbox 360 title update.
Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will cost $19.99.

If you've bought Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition from Xbox Live Marketplace, or played online with the disc version, you will be able to upgrade to Xbox One Edition for $4.99.
You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.
Players with Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition saves will be able to import their worlds to Xbox One. Unfortunately, you won't be able to transfer saves from Xbox One to Xbox 360. We can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems.

Cross platform play will not be possible between Xbox 360 and Xbox One.

Many, but not all, of the DLC skins and texture packs you've purchased for Xbox 360 Edition will be available for use in Xbox One Edition. We'd like to say all your DLC would transfer, but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We'll have more on this soon.


PS Vita

Minecraft: Playstation 3 + Vita Edition will be available on the PSN in August.
It will include all the features from the most recent Playstation 3 version, including online play on Vita.

If you’ve bought Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition from PSN you’ll be able to upgrade for free.

We are working closely with Sony Computer Entertainment to look into ways to enable upgrade from the Blu-ray disc version of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition to Minecraft: Playstation 3 and Vita. We’ll have more info on this closer to release.

This means everyone who has bought Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition from PSN will get it on Vita for free. Those fluent in Sony-speak might refer to the deal as “Cross-buy.”
Minecraft: Playstation 3 + Vita Edition will cost $19.99.

It doesn’t matter if you buy for PS3 or Vita first, you own the game for both platforms.
Saves are transferrable between the Playstation 3 and Vita versions of Minecraft. You will be able to craft at home on your Playstation 3, then continue on the bus/toilet with your Playstation Vita.

All of the DLC you’ve purchased for Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition will work on Playstation 3 + Vita Edition.

PS4

Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition will be released on the PSN in August. It brings significantly bigger worlds and a greater draw distance than Playstation 3 + Vita Edition.

It will include all the features from the most recent Playstation 3 version.

Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition will cost $19.99.

If you’ve bought Playstation 3 Edition from the Playstation Network you will be able to upgrade for $4.99.

You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.

We are working closely with Sony Computer Entertainment to look into ways to enable upgrade from the Blu-ray disc version of Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition to Minecraft:

Playstation 4 Edition. We’ll have more info on this closer to release.

Players with Playstation 3 Edition or Playstation 3 + Vita Edition saves will be able to import their worlds to Playstation 4. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to transfer your saves from Playstation 4 to Playstation 3/Vita. There are technical reasons for this; we can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems.

Cross-platform play will not be possible between Playstation 3 + Vita Edition and Playstation 4 Edition.

Many, but not all, of the DLC skins and texture packs you’ve purchased for Playstation 3 Edition will be available for use in Playstation 4 Edition. We’d like to say all your DLC would transfer but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We’ll have more on this soon.

PS3/Vita versions crossbuy? Wow... that's damn impressive for a game this huge, especially seeing as the high digital attach rate on Vita would have netted a lot of double dippers easily. Good on Mojang for doing the decent thing I guess. Now if Sony had any sense they'd bundle the game with every Vita and advertise the shit out of it. Only (real)handheld version of Minecraft available would be a system mover for sure (Maybe not massively so, but it'd definitely have an effect)... so long as people actually know it exists first obviously.

I already have it on the 360 and will get it on the one but I would be tempted to pick it up on the Vita.

You should try it Assassin its pretty fun. One of those games you can spend hours on and not realise it. Shame there is no Wii U version as it would be great on that.
