Minecraft coming to PS4 and PS Vita this August photo



Along with the Xbox One details comes some news of the PlayStation releases for Minecraft. The PlayStation Vita version launches in August for $19.99, going under the name of Minecraft: PlayStation 3 + Vita Edition. Those who already own Minecraft for PS3 will be given the PS Vita version through cross-buy. There's cross-save too, and all of the DLC that's been purchased on the PS3 version will work with the Vita version.

Minecraft: PlayStation 4 Edition will also launch in August, and retail for $19.99. Those that already own the PS3 version can upgrade over to this new version for $4.99, and that upgrade window will be open for at least a year after release. Saves from the PS3 and Vita version can be imported to the PS4 version, but you won't be able to transfer saves from new-gen to the last-gen. There won't be cross-platform play either, and only some of the DLC will transfer over.

Now let's take a moment to appreciate that Mojang referred to the Xbox One as the Xbone in the header image.
