Minecraft Xbox 360 Players Will Get Free Xbox One Edition?

By Web News Voice: "They already said that nothing will port over except your profile. You bought Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition, that will not port so you will have to buy Minecraft: Xbox One Edition. That’s the way it’s gonna be" (Minecraft, Xbox One)

I've said this once.

The Minecraft Xbox One Edition is just to get people to buy the game again.

I assume that on PlayStation since the Minecraft is the same version for all consoles, we will be able to buy the game for the Ps4 and download it to Vita and Ps3. Now we have to see.

I seriously doubt that the PS3 version will be the same as the PS4 version. RAM limitations apply to the PS3 just like they apply to the Xbox360.

And the PSvita version... lol. Also cut down compared to PS4.

Remote play will be free? XD

There's isn't a whole lot of power needed by Minecraft to begin with. If anything PS3 and Vita will just load shorter distances, and be a little slower at it.

Its not like they are remaking Minecraft in super HD for next gen.....
malokevi  +   765d ago
If you keep up on it, you would know that they cant do infinite worlds or massive servers on current gen hardware due to ram limitations. that's why next-gen minecraft is a step up, because it will be on par with what they do on PC.

I figured that was common knowledge. My bad.

Don't think Sony is a charity,they will probably sell each version of the game separately.

I also highly suspect that they would allow remote play for that game(since there will already be a Vita version and if they allow remote play of the PS4 version then they would be shooting themselves in the foot)

I think they will offer a "2 in 1" sort of deal for the PS4&PSVita.

Why so hostel ? so if Sony cash-in over PS4/PSVita bundles then they will be OK with selling a game on the PS4 that can be played remotely on the Vita WHILE they also over the same game in the Vita store !? how is that NOT shooting yourself in the foot ?

As for your (A) point,didn't know that,thank you for clearing that up.

A) Sony doesn't decide what is and isn't a cross buy; the publisher does.
B) Typically only games with "differences" or released later aren't cross-buy.
C) Indeed! Think of all the loss sales from the people that spent over $600 dollars on the PS4 and Vita. Seriously though, it will have no impact. If I want to play Minecraft on the go, then I'll just buy a version I can play locally without wifi. If I want to play a version at home, then I'll buy the console version. Not much more to it.

That would only be if it were cross-buy between all three systems. Only time will tell but I don't think it will be for that particular game.

That's the word I was looking for :

"I assume that on PlayStation since the Minecraft is the same version for all consoles, we will be able to buy the game for the Ps4 and download it to Vita and Ps3."

that depends on whether it's a cross buy title. if it's not, then that won't happen, i'm afraid.

You have to buy all minecraft editions. PS and Xbox are no exception.Just because you have the PC edition doesn't mean you get the pocket edition or console edition for free. You must be pretty dumb if you think you can buy it on PS3 and get it for free on PS4..
pedrof93  +   765d ago
I'm not sure, but I think that there was a game that I bought on PS+ on Ps3 (That could be played on Ps3) and on the same account be download to Vita and played there.

Edit: I've found this:


Go to the section cross-buy. it confirms what I've said.

Not buying an XB1 for Minecraft, but for those that do purchase the XB1, it's kind of cool.
malokevi  +   765d ago
Article title got my hopes up. That would be nice... but this is understandable.

They are taking it a step farther on XB1. Massive multiplayer worlds, or something to that effect. I will see if it's worth buying, since I have all but completely stopped playing on my Xbox.
pedrof93  +   765d ago
This is understandable. OK.

Just buy a PS4.


"I fully intend on buying a PS4. But I'm getting an Xbox One on launch day. Suck on'dat!"

At least you'l be redeeming yourself... but not at launch. Though you didn't explain the "but this is understandable" part.

How is it not understandable? If you buy a copy on Xbox360, do you get the PC version? Mobile versions? Ps4 version... where does it end?

Do you just expect handouts, or are you simply making a fuss because this is about Xbox One?

I imagine the latter is true...

I fully intend on buying a PS4. But I'm getting an Xbox One on launch day. Suck on'dat!
malokevi  +   765d ago
Yes, a little unclear. I mean the content of the article title would be nice, aka getting XB1 minecraft for free. But its understandable that they can't do that, considering time/resources go into developing on the X1.

@ malokevi:

"If you buy a copy on Xbox360, do you get the PC version? Mobile versions?"

if sony makes it a cross buy title, then with the purchase of the PS4 version, you likely get the PS3 version or the vita version. possibly even both, depending on how they implement cross buy (if at all) for that game.
DarthJay  +   765d ago
Can I get it free on PS4 if I have it on 360? What about free on 360 if I have it on PC? No? Who knew?
WeAreLegion  +   765d ago
I hope the PS4 version has mod support.
coolasj  +   765d ago
Just slap Cross-Buy on it please. I don't want to quadruple dip for Minecraft -_-
LucasEVille  +   765d ago
I love console games but I will never buy this until it's on par with pc and we can move our maps between console and pc. I have a massive multi town/city setup I spend at least 5 mins a day adding to it.
