Minecraft for Xbox One, PS4, and Vita to be released in August

4J Studios and Mojang unleashed a massive amount of news for Minecraft on next-gen consoles today, with just about all the information players have been asking for. The Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PS Vita Editions will all launch in August digitally (perhaps a physical version later on will be possible). Here's the scoop:

Minecraft Xbox One Edition

  • 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, and will have all the features of TU16 on the 360.

  • Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will cost $19.99, and 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.

  • 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. Some DLC (we guess most likely the Marvel-themed ones) might not make it at first.


Minecraft PS4/Vita Edition

  • 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, and will include all the features from the TU16 update.

  • Minecraft: Playstation 4 Edition will cost $19.99, and if you’ve 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.


So there you have it, that's all the information we will likely have for a while. See the source link in the description for more info.
