Minecraft released on Xbox One, PS4 and Vita in August

Mojang's world changing build-em-up has shuffled like a creeper towards a final release date for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, as well as PlayStation Vita. The game will come to those platforms in August, the developer has confirmed.

That's especially good news for Vita owners, since the game is part of Sony's Cross-Buy system. That means if you buy the game on PlayStation 3, or already own the PS3 version, you can download it on Vita absolutely free.

Owners of the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will also be able to upgrade to the next gen edition for a fraction of the full price. Also good news: you'll be able to import your saved worlds from one console to another, Xbox 360 to Xbox One and PlayStation 3 to PlayStation 4. What you won't be able to do is hang out with pals playing on different consoles.

Both the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions will offer much larger worlds to muck about in, as well as greater detail and longer draw distances, allowing you to see more of the world as you roam. You'll also be able to use most of the texture packs and other downloads in the new versions. "We'd like to say all your DLC would transfer," says Microsoft, "but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We'll have more on this soon."

Minecraft is out now for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Vita join the party in August.
