4J Studios is still working on fixing some bugs for Minecraft: PlayStation Vita and Xbox One version, while the PlayStation 4 version is already ready. They revealed, during this week, that they already sent Minecraft: PlayStation 4 to Sony for certification.
If no major problems will be found on the PS4 version, the game could be certified in a week or two, and Minecraft for Sony’s last generation console will be released by the end of August, as the developers promised.
As for the other two versions, the Xbox One and PlayStation Vita, it seems that the developers are still fixing the bugs. They wrote on their official twitter account that they will give us fresh news at the right moment.
If 4J Studios will not submit these two versions for certification soon, there is a high chance that these versions of Minecraft will be released in September, not in August as first promised.
Minecraft for PlayStation Vita will have all the features that the PS3 version has. The two versions’ save files will be compatible with each other and if you purchased the PS3 version you will be able to download the Vita version for free.
Minecraft for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 will have 36 times larger worlds than the current Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions have. 4J Studios said that these two upcoming versions will also have greater draw distances. The players who already own Minecraft on their PS3 or Xbox 360 version will be able to upgrade to the next-generation console (PS3 or Xbox One) for only 4.99 dollars.
In addition they will be able to transfer the saved worlds from PS3 or Xbox 360 to the next-generation consoles. However, they won’t be able to transfer worlds from PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to the previous consoles because of the large world size these next-generation consoles support.
Most of the DLC packs from PS3 and Xbox 360 will not work on the latest consoles because of the license restrictions. It might include Marvel content such as the Avengers Pack.
