WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re finally able to share news about Minecraft on Xbox One, Playstation 4, and Playstation Vita.
Apologies for the delay, but putting Minecraft on new consoles is a serious business. People have been using phrases like Ã¢â‚¬Å“logistically-speaking,Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“infinite terrain,Ã¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“platform parityÃ¢â‚¬Â Ã‚Â for months now.
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢veÃ‚Â decided that letting current players upgrade for a small fee is the best way to show our appreciation. If youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re a new crafter whoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s looking to pick up Minecraft in the next few months Ã¢â‚¬â€œ welcome!
We hope this post makes you happy!

- Minecraft: Xbox One Edition will be released on Xbox Live Marketplace in August. It bringsÃ‚Â 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 youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 forÃ‚Â 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 wonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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 youÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ve purchased for Xbox 360 Edition will be available for use in Xbox One Edition. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢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. WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll have more on this soon.
