Today Mojang has announced what many fans of Minecraft have been waiting for. That news being of course that Minecraft is going to be coming to the next-gen consoles, as well as the PS Vita, very soon. The release is expected to occur sometime in August and there are a number of details for the game depending on which console you pick it up for.
If you happen to buy the Xbox One version or PS4 version of the game it will be priced at $19.99 but users who own the 360 or PS3 version of Minecraft can upgrade for only $4.99. Now the Xbox 360 version will allow players to import their worlds but not their save data, though “many, if not all” textures packs and skins will be available for the Xbox One.
The PS4 release will allow players to transfer their save data from the PS3 to the Vita or the PS4 but not back due to technical issues. Cross platform play is also not possible in any of these games. As for the Vita release, it will also cost $19.99 but if you own the digital version of the PS3 version of Minecraft then you will be given the Vita version free of charge.
