PS4 & Vita Minecraft coming in August

Minecraft

Mojang has announced that their legendary game, Minecraft, will be coming to the PlayStation 4, PlayStation Vita and Xbox One in August.

For those of you who already own the game on the PlayStation 3, you will only need to spend $5.00 (US) to get the game on your PlayStation 4; everyone else will have to dish out $20.00 (US). The PlayStation Vita version of the game will be Cross-Buy. which means that if you own Minecraft on the PlayStation 3 you will receive the PlayStation Vita version for free.

All PlayStation 3 DLC will work with the PlayStation Vita version, but not all skins and texture packs will work on PlayStation 4 or Xbox One versions, due to licensing deals.

The Minecraft world will be larger in the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One versions of the game, so your saves from the PlayStation 3/Xbox 360 can carry over, but your next-gen saves can’t go back to last gen.

“There are technical reasons for this; we can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems,” Mojang says.
