New Details on Minecraft: Xbox One Edition

Today, our friends at Mojang released several important new details about Minecraft: Xbox One Edition.

First, and most importantly, they’ve revealed that Minecraft makes the jump to next gen this August for $19.99. There’s also great news for the 12+ million of you that already own Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition – you’ll be able to upgrade for just $4.99.

Mojang shares more details on topics such as upgrading, save transfers, and DLC portability over on their website.






Xbox One By Jeff Rubenstein

  • ungeheier

    $5 upgrade? That’s a no-brainer.

  • Shakeslikecrazy

    Excellent discount! That’s indeed a no-brainer.

  • http://www.kevin-fell.co.uk/ Kevin Fell

    That upgrade offer is awesome. Ms are on a roll.

  • Dave

    Sounds like a good deal for those who already bought the game, glad they did that.

  • Peter

    minor dilemma never got the 360 version wondering if worth buying at 20 for 360 and pay 5 for upgrade or just straight buy the x1 version

    • just1legend

      Go straight buy cause the upgrade only applies to people that got the game at least a year after release date. (Disc or Digital)

      • shafnitz

        I don’t believe that’s what it says.

        “You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.”

        Meaning, you have at least a year after the Xbox One version comes out to get the discounted price.

    • Michael Burden

      It would probably be worth it to get the 360 version to get a head start on the game, then transfer your save files to the One version. The upgrade option will be available for at least a year after the release of the One version – disregard just1legend’s comment as it is incorrect.

  • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

    This game isn’t really my thing, but that’s a great deal for people who own the 360 version. I wonder if it also supports save imports.

    • Nick Peck

      Yah, you can move saves from the 360.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Good stuff. u play this?

      • Dylan

        You can’t transfer saves, but can transfer worlds.

        • Nick Peck

          or worlds.. yah whatever it is I forgot they are “different’ w/ that game lol.

    • evilfangs .

      Yea I don’t understand the liking of this game that people have with it.

      I wonder if Sony will come out and say you don’t need to pay to upgrade from PS3 > PS4.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Haha no doubt. on another note, you get a chance to play wolfenstein yet? I really, really am enjoying it. It says a lot, since I’ve been crazy disappointed with fps games lately. I’m super glad they didn’t tack on multiplayer because they really put some effort into this single player campaign. Very fun ! also…. few more days til watch dogs!&//$*×*+^+!!+×÷&!!!!! haha yes I’m excited.. The leaked footage I’ve seen is incredible

        • evilfangs .

          yea I’m playing it now, I was going to wait but decided to get it today, although £45 is a stupid amount for maybe two play-through game.

          I’m really enjoying it too, the reviews I seen of it are defiantly worth the scores I’ve seen given to this game,

          I’m waiting till Last of us is released on PS4 next month then I’m getting a PS4 Watch Dogs bundle, so need to hide away for at least a week after Watch Dog release to not see any spoilers.

          • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

            Haha I didn’t know the last of us was coming that soon on ps4. I’m definitely going to grab the remastered version as well. I loved that game so much. But yeah I think wolfenstein is well worth the money. I don’t equate multiplayer with value. sure it gives you the possibility to play it for much longer, but if a game is well made enough, single player I see no problem with it. I don’t feel they need to tack on multiplayer to give it value. The campaign is actually close to 20 hours, which can be replayed at least once to give a much different feel and story. I think that’s great.

      • Michael Burden

        Mojang already has it posted that it is also a $5 upgrade to the PS4, just like the One. The Vita version does qualify for CrossBuy if you own the PS3 version however.

    • digitallife

      It’s a great time killer for most, I guess if you could get into the game it’s literally an endless process of playing it. I know people who still play this about 3 hours a day or so since it’s release at $20 that’s like .003 cents per hour played at this point.

      • http://Www.mylifewithgaming.wordpress.com/ Mitchell Hall

        Oh yeah don’t get me wrong, I get why people like it. It’s just not my type of game.

        • digitallife

          I hear you man

  • Professor Oak

    10/10 Will upgrade, even though I probably won’t get a Xbox One till next year

  • digitallife

    So wait a second, does the upgrade apply to those who bought it in disc format or is it only for those who bought it digitally?

    • beardyman3218

      Digital only otherwise people would take advantage and lend there discs to other people so they could get a discount.

      • digitallife

        Nevermind just read the article..as long as you played the disc version online you should be fine.

    • Alexander Rusenshterdt

      I think it will apply to digital purchases only…because there is no way they can check if you bought the game in disk form,wait for further details! who knows maybe you get lucky.

  • Brad

    When MS is in last place, everyone wins… let’s hope you don’t sell anything through the summer so we can get that external hard drive bump on the 360. Thanks for announcing this ahead of time instead of letting everyone pay full price on DAY ONE only to discount it DAY TWO…

    • digitallife

      I say forget the HD bumps…let us save and store and access games from the cloud. Much cheaper and doesn’t require buying more hard drives.

      • Brad

        The cloud is not cheaper than an external hard drive, In fact (REAL) reliable cloud storage (500Gb) is at least $50 a month. MS will NOT give any substantial cloud server space to us for FREE and I would rather not host my files on a server I might not have access too if my internet is down etc… I want my games on my storage.

        • digitallife

          1. No cost of manufacturing
          2. No cost of shipping to retailers
          3. Already existing server farms so the infrastructure is set
          4. Another incentive to have xbox live gold
          5. To you the consumer it’s cheaper
          6. MS has more server space and storage space than it’s community will ever need…so..
          7. Clearly sony is going into cloud access to gaming as part of it’s rental service thing. MS could very well do the same.

          • digitallife

            But I respect your opinion, if you prefer a physical drive so be it.

          • Phil Mann

            Google Cloud Storage pricing is based on a flat rate for storage and a usage rate for …. 1TB (1024GB) at $0.12/per GB: $122.88; 9TB (9216GB) at $0.11/per GB: …
            a quick search got me these results, seems he’s got his pricing correct. after taxes that $150 ish, pending if you pay 2 taxes like most Canadians. not sure what the situation is down south tho…. 13% tax (g.s.t & p.s.t) increase on all my pricing

          • Phil Mann

            but then again ther are several places offer online storage. some as low as 2.50 per month. not all deals are worth the price. get wat you pay right?

          • GamerResentment

            Thanks for the “respect your opinion” part. I hate when things get heated :/

          • Brad

            The cost over 1TB is at least $150 a month for storage. IT IS NOT cheaper. My opinion is ONLY for the how I prefer MY storage.

            However the FACT remains. Cloud Storage costs more and you will see that when they offer it.

          • digitallife

            Ok….Not sure what foolish company is charging $150 a month for 1tb, when you could literally pay $31 a month for a vps with 2tb of storage yourself….

          • Brad

            Foolish company? You have no clue what you are even talking about. Your 1 – 7 reasons are from a child’s perspective and not a business perspective/analysis.

            1. No cost of manufacturing? I guess those servers appear out of nowhere and require ZERO maintenance.
            2. Shipping is NOT a concern at that level

            3. Are you serious? More people equals more servers… they will never have enough.
            4. They cannot afford it at current XBL price. Space STILL Cost money and is more expensive on a monthly basis then purchasing hardware. There are thousands of studies and reports on this and they all agree. The cloud is not there yet.
            5. NO it’s not cheaper and you don’t own it.
            6 You have no idea what MS has and what they are using it for.
            7. Everyone is going into the cloud as it’s the next best thing

            I’m not talking about unreliable shared Cloud servers, hosted by companies that cannot handle the bandwidth. I am talking about real companies and what it REALLY costs for good service. The cloud is expensive and as time goes by it will be cheaper but as of today, this moment in time it is NOT cheaper than a raid drive or external hard drive. PERIOD.

            And here is the bottom line that trumps your opinion. MS just announced external HD support for XB1… NOT cloud support. WHY you ask? because the size of the games. Maybe in 5 years, the cloud will be cheaper who knows, but as of today it’s not. PERIOD.

          • digitallife

            I have no clue what i’m talking about ok..You said the cost of 1tb storage is $150 a month but i’m the one who doesn’t know what i’m talking about….

            1. The servers exists and wouldn’t cost them anything else since it already “EXISTS”..they are also already being maintained with no additional budget needed.

            2.Shipping is not a concern on that level, ok I guess importing products made in china doesn’t cost money…or doesn’t carry an import tax.

            3. Are you kidding? MS build a server hub that they themselves stated would never be put to full usage because it’s that big.

            4. LMAO..Ok…financial guru.

            For the rest you may want to go look at what amazon cloud services cost before you make a bigger fool of yourself…

          • Brad

            You DON’T know what you are talking about PERIOD. And again to shut you down…

            MS just announced external HD support for XB1… NOT cloud support.

            I appreciate your opinion but it is not relevant to the facts.

          • digitallife

            LMAO@ shut down..i’m still waiting for that $150 dollar a tb company you mentioned…but I have no idea what i’m talking about…we aren’t talking about what’s been announced we are discussing what you are requesting which has nothing to do with anything announced because OBVIOUSLY YOU WOULDN’T BE ASKING FOR IT…”Had they opted for cloud support”..considering they haven’t actually opted for anything in relation to the 360 your point is mute. Anyway, good day to you sir.

          • ryder4life22187

            amazon cloud lol

        • Nick Peck

          I have 30gb of storage on m Onedrive, for free, all year every year. If I want more I can pay for more which I doubt I would ever need to.

      • A. J.

        Um, can’t you do that now? I bought Dead Rising 3 digitally. I’m pretty sure I can go to another X1, login, and then download Dead Rising 3 for free. And my game saves are also saved in the cloud as well.

        • GamerResentment

          I’m pretty sure digitallife means storing it in the cloud whereas I’m sure your downloading the game but it’s still on your HDD? I may, of course, be wrong. Cheers :)

      • GamerResentment

        For starters, correct me if I am wrong but hopefully without rage filled foaming mouths ;)

        I respect those that like the cloud and I don’t mind using it here and there. My only gripe is it’s digital yeah? And when it’s digital, it has an expiration (ah la Titan fall. If they close servers tomorrow, y’all can’t play it anymore correct?).

        With my HDD, what’s on there is mine til I say so (unless timed like Sonys ps+ free games). I can choose to keep it forever or delete it at will and so long as the service (downloading service like Xbla) is around, I can redownload when I please.

        With the cloud, what’s yours is never really yours. Say any company, not just MS, cuts the service from you, or as a whole stop using it, you can no longer access what you thought was yours. Even if they don’t cut your service, can’t they decide to keep you from playing a specific game if they want to? Control what hours you can do things? Delete what they please of yourse? Again correct me if I’m wrong about any part of this.

        I have no issue with those who want the cloud. I say let it be an option (if it’s possible, and since I know nothing on specs it would take to be possible, I won’t argue if it is or isn’t) but don’t make it the only option. I like my HDDs very much and don’t ever think I will go all cloud especially with all the shenanigans companies are doing nowadays, but would like those who do wanna go all cloud to have the option. Give us both, not either or.

        Ps. Same goes with games. Both gameplay and graphics not either or though I prefer gameplay over graphics which is why old SNES games are still fun :)

  • beardyman3218

    Great news on the upgrade price, I will definitely upgrade now, I was hesitant at first in case at was full price again.

  • digitallife

    MS pay attention, follow suit and do this for State of Decay for xbox one…we know we didn’t get multiplayer on the 360 because that made more sense to toss into the xbox one version.

    • evilfangs .

      State of Decay is coming to Xbox one? Nice! I’ve been wanting to go back and play State of Decay on my 360 but couldn’t handle playing on the 360 controller anymore.

      • digitallife

        I’ve come to that conclusion because they changed the direction of where the 360 version was going drastically. Not sure why else they would’ve suspended work on things they’ve promised.

  • Peter

    Good news but i wouldn’t expect this upgrade deal to become a regular thing among publishers. Most publishers would rather you buy the same game twice instead. Guessing this was Mojang’s doing and the 5 dollars upgrade is really nice.

  • Peter

    Cloud computing is all retarded hype and simply foolish to depend on. Its depends on internet always on and working. Not a problem you say? okay fine lets say hypothetically your internet never ever goes down (rolls eyes) if your game is in the cloud its going to be slower to stream and not play as well as if you physically had it right there sitting on your drive or playing from disk

    Not even sure why people hold up cloud as some imaginary panacea Cloud computing is like a dream which is reality isn’t practical in reality. Not everyone has those super fast blazing speeds to make cloud computing feasible. Cloud computing has its alot of cons to go along with it.

    • Brad

      “Not even sure why people hold up cloud as some imaginary panacea Cloud computing is like a dream which is reality isn’t practical in reality”

      Because MS said so and fanboys aren’t smart enough to check the facts for themselves. You are 100% correct and until we are ALL connected at the same high end bit rate it will never be as good or even close as promised.

    • A. J.

      Cloud computing is all retarded hype and simply foolish to depend on. Its depends on internet always on and working.

      Online multiplayer games require an internet connection, but they seem to be worth the occasional downtime.

      if your game is in the cloud its going to be slower to stream and not play as well as if you physically had it right there sitting on your drive or playing from disk

      And here shows the real issues. Don’t take this the wrong way, but you don’t know what “the cloud” means. Streaming video is just one example of a way to use the cloud. However, I don’t think a single X1 game does this. In many cases, using cloud computing can provide you with far more CPU for certain tasks than the X1 has.

      Not even sure why people hold up cloud as some imaginary panacea Cloud computing is like a dream which is reality isn’t practical in reality.

      Drivatars in Forza are examples of the cloud. The AI in TitanFall is all done in the cloud. Game save syncronizations are done with the cloud. MMO’s are all done using the cloud. This website is hosted in the cloud.

      The cloud is a new term for something that has been done for a long time. It isn’t new, it is in use, and it is very practical.

      Not everyone has those super fast blazing speeds to make cloud computing feasible.

      How so? Do you realize that you don’t actually need very much bandwidth for many cloud-based solutions? You aren’t sending the whole game across the WAN. For example, in TitanFall the game is hosted in the cloud and the AI is computed there. All you need bandwidth for is sending information saying things like “Person A is at spot x,y,z and fired gun G in the direction D.” That translates to needing very little bandwidth.

      In games like Animal Crossing or State of Decay, when you turn on the game it quickly estimates what has happened since you last played. Using the cloud, these games could not only be always running, but they could also be accessible by your friends as well.

      The cloud isn’t smoke and mirrors. It has many very realistic and practical applications. And it isn’t exclusive to Microsoft either. Sony, Nintendo, and Steam all use various cloud resources for different tasks. The reason why Microsoft can boast about the cloud is because they are a cloud provider, which means they have much cheaper access to the resources.

    • Nick Peck

      And guess what, the local hardware can fail to. PS4′s break, XBO’s break… NOTHING is perfect, get used to it. It’s called progress, the “cloud” is still in it’s infancy (for newer tech like what MS has talked about among other companies and technologies) and has decade ahead of it to grow. It has a lot of potential but ultimately that is if everything stays up 100% which in todays world isn’t feasible just yet.

    • Some guy

      The power of the cloud is like 30 years old + and yet here we are still trying to make it happen.

  • ElektroDragon

    What if you own the physical edition of Minecraft 360? Are you screwed out of the discount pricing?

    • Michael Burden

      If you have the retail disc and have played it online, they you qualify for the discount. This has been confirmed on the Mojang page in the link in the blog post. Already confirmed for 360, they are trying to make it work for PS3.

    • GamerResentment

      Your not necessarily screwed per se. Physical disk will always have it’s advantages over digital. I actually want to rebuy on disk but don’t wanna spend the money.

  • evilfangs .

    Bit off topic but has anyone seen that Watch Dogs video showing someone driving end to end of the map? It’s on one of the playstation channels, the pop in’s are horrible, as are the draw distances. I thought it was going to be a next gen game.

    • Nick Peck

      Obviously what they showed off when they announced the game was always on a high end pc, so it doesn’t surprise me at all. Guess we will see. As long as it’s really fun hopefully it wont detract from the game much. Or we will have to dl a 10gb day one patch if that is the case lol.

    • Dylan

      It’s sad. It really is. I was pumped about this game. I don’t even really care about the glitches, it’s the fact that it is so crazy and gun heavy now. I mean it has giant freaking mechs now. What the heck is that!?

      I wanted to be some type of modern day superhero, in an open world, changing things with my smart-phone, without the need of a gun. Just a baton and a phone.

      What a shame. Maybe the sequel will be more like their original vision, and also not graphically downgraded like it has. Think we can blame the old systems for this one.

    • Some guy

      Dont’ say anything bad about ubisoft games or ImTheMetalLord will come to say you’re terrible and how wrong you are.

      • Professor Oak

        Don’t talk about other games or other sales or Does Not Equal will come and complain

    • Does Not Equal

      … only a bit?

  • Jorge Garza

    Again, GREAT news! This last week has been amazing despite the decision to unbundle kinect.

    • http://10minutemail.com Kamikaze Watermelon

      That was a good decision too

      • Jorge Garza

        It is not for the people who already own Xbox One.

        Developers won´t support it anymore because it is not going to be worth it for them to invest in AAA games designed for Kinect.

        • Senses Failed

          I already own an xbox one..

          It was a good decision :)

        • http://10minutemail.com Kamikaze Watermelon

          They weren’t supporting it all that much anyways

  • http://adamusprime.tumblr.com/niccagehead NicCage5000

    Ah, makes sense now. Why make a system backwards compatible when you can charge a fee to play the ‘Next Gen Edition’ of the same exact game… or just make people buy the same game twice. From the comments, seems there are many who think its a good thing.

    On the flip side, one does not expect their PS3 dics to play in an Xbox 360… meaning if you want to play the same game on both systems, you must buy the game twice. So I guess the other point of view is that Xbox 360 and Xbox One are akin to 2 competing consoles rather than products in the same family.

    • Peter

      wasn’t defending it. Just saying thats how it is with companies. It’s 2 different systems so can see it from both sides. I look at xbox 360 and one as two different beasts. Just because i buy one doesn’t mean i feel entitled to the same thing just because i switched to a different platform. Not saying its not nice however when and if they do offer a discount like mojang has done here but i certainly don’t curse them for not giving it.

    • usrev

      it’s 2 different games essentially. i’m surprised there is going to be a cheap upgrade for it at all.

    • Nick Peck

      New and different systems, redone game, yes you should have to pay for it. Is it really that hard to figure out? Why didn’t everyone get free upgrades from beta max to vhs? Free cd’s when going from tape to cd, or from dvd to br… Yah didn’t happen.

      If you don’t like it, don’t buy it, simple solution.

      • GamerResentment

        Very good examples used sir/ma’am. I say it’s the mobile “universal app” audience that doesn’t get it.

    • GamerResentment

      You pose good questions but your forgetting something. They already do your last question. You can buy digital games of ps2, ps1, original xbox games on the 360 even though you already own them on disc. Yes it’s the same game but they have to change things to make sure it works with the new system and new hardware.

      This is what happens when you get casual mobile market gamers into consoles. Just because you don’t have to rebuy your apps if your going from iPhone to iPad, doesn’t mean that’s how everything works. Consoles were here first and this is how they do things. Don’t like it? Go back to your mobile devices and play Angry Birds. Not directing this last part to you BTW, just in general.

  • http://xxkarzaxx.tumblr.com/ Karza

    I’m glad it will only cost $5.Since Mojang and stuff have to be paid for their time and effort to bring this game to Xbox One,I was expecting to pay more.

    Super happy my texture packs will be transferring too.Sure,they’re only a dollar each anyway,but that’s a few dollars less I have to spend.

  • http://people.ign.com/ltsjoemama ltsJoeMama

    About time we heard something about this. And for $5 if we had it on 360? Awesome.

  • Phil Mann

    day one buy for sure… got it for the kids on 360 and ps3 and pay $5 for next gen upgrade. not going to have any issues with MP gameplay like we did with the ps version? sections of world not loading, invisible blocks, constant duplication while digging dirt, freezing and such? tobi tenma XBL tobi_tenma PSN

  • Phil Mann

    another question am I gonna lose my digital rights to my 360 or psn versions? i still own the “current” gen systems. ps4 next month if all goes right

    • Will Muscat

      I never lost my rights to Spartan Assault or Ghost when doing upgrade so i’d imagine you should be fine with Minecraft.

    • Nick Peck

      Nope, you retain everything you have purchased on any system. This is simply a discount price for owning the “older” version.

  • Some guy

    So 5$ for increased draw distance?
    That’s a really stupid upgrade but I guess you can’t really upgrade a game about cubes.
    It could be cross buy or backward compatible too, but that would be doing something for us and they can’t do that.

    • Does Not Equal

      But it IS crossbuy. Own it for 360, get it on One for five bucks.
      Backwards compatible? You want to make it so you can play your One-created worlds on 360? That makes no sense. The game has forward compatibility — you can move your saves from 360 to One.

      Did you even click the link before complaining?

      • Some guy

        If for you cross buy mean you have to buy it again then fine it is cross buy. Backward compatible meant crazy stuff using the 360 disc to play a game on Xbone, you’re the one that’s not making sense talking about saves.

        • Michael Burden

          Talk about someone not making sense. Backwards compatibility to the 360 is by no means an easy proposition due to the differing CPU architecture – I can’t believe I still have to harp on this. It is far cheaper and easier to port the game over with more features and larger worlds than to make all 360 games compatible with the One.

          I’m sure many people would prefer the improved version at a discount on the One than play the old version with the same limitations it had last generation.

          • Beano

            I think I’m going to hire Some guy to do my taxes. The dude is ON the ball

          • OldSocialist

            Problem is it’s a cube-shaped ball.

          • Some guy

            I know, if only there was some kind of huge software company highly skilled in operating systems with knowledge about how the 360 worked to emulate it.

          • Nick Peck

            And why waste all of that time and money when the dev that created the game can just port it to the newer system? I swear, do any of you guys understand how things work in the real world (and not just the one in your head)?

          • Some guy

            So if I want to play time splitters, how do I do? get an xbawx huge to play it while the servers are dead and I can’t get anything on it? Or I get a ps3 that can play it ps2, ps1 and ps3 games.
            Really, why waste money on more video games when you can make more halo games.

          • Jan Václavík

            Good luck trying to find launch PS3 that did not YLOD by now … oh, wait, even that one wont play TimeSplitters properly.

          • Phil Mann

            I cant access online features for my ps2 games on ps3…so?….would’ve loved to play the old conflict games or even socom online on my ps3

            I think they know a lot more than you which is obvious at this point. And having worked extensively with both myself (Apple, Sun, Silicon Graphics, HP, IBM, as well as run of the mill x86 systems), I can attest that they aren’t lying about this being an extremely difficult task (and expensive).

            CISC based systems have always had a difficult time emulating RISC based systems – FACT. While all the games on the 360 use the basic coding, many developers use some advanced techniques to get the most out of the system, which in turn adds to the difficulty in making an emulator – this is why BC on the 360 had only a few games emulated and were done in bunches that used similar programming techniques. Also the power gap between this gen and last is not as great as it was going from the original Xbox to the 360, which also adds to the difficulty in getting an emulator to run efficiently since you are in effect running a virtual 360 inside the RAM of the One.

            Now getting the original Xbox games to play on the One would actually be pretty simple as they are similar in CPU architecture (both using x86 based CPUs) and there is more than enough power on the One to run an emulator with few problems. The biggest hurdle there would be the video card compatibility and games that used very exotic programming techniques.

            Besides all this, I can think of many other games I would be wanting to be BC instead of Minecraft. I’d much rather play an updated version that did not have the 360 limits and will gladly pay the generous $5 upgrade cost.

            I suggest you educate yourself before spouting this general nonsense so you don’t look anymore the fool in the future.

            Excellent summation. In essence Xbox 360 emulation on the Xbox One without putting a physical Xbox 360 chip in the box.
            There’s too many dependancies, like multithreading not being available on the Xbox One and a lower clockspeed to boot that are impossible to overcome.

          • Some guy

            If that’s the case you could have made a console that’s not garbage in the first place and make sure the CPU contained instruction set of the old 360, like every x86 CPU do with the older x86 CPU. Instead they took a notebook x86 CPU to make sure there was no possibility of backward compatibility. I mean, they officially said “If you’re backwards compatible, you’re really backwards,” so it’s obvious they don’t care and never will.

          • GamerResentment

            If you can do better, then do it, until then, stop complaining just because the world decides it doesn’t want to bow to you. You have no idea what it would take to do so.

            Just because you buy MW3 on the Wii doesn’t mean you get to get it for the PS3, PC, and 360 so why would this be any different? Be glad they didn’t just charge the $20 to begin with.

            No game that I can think of just gives out a free upgrade. Updates are free sure, but this is a game for a whole new console.

            Sorry about being a little rude in the beginning.

          • Nick Peck

            People have no clue how any of this works, which is very obvious by their comments. How it’s being done is the most cost effective way to do it, and it makes the most sense. I agree.

          • Death Dealer

            Xbox 360 BC is impossible with the current Xbox One APU. If MS would have made that possible it would have required integration of the Xbox 360 APU on the PCB, which would have increased the costs of the system by a lot.

        • Does Not Equal

          If by “paying for it again” you mean “paying 25% of the cost to get it on a different system while being able to move your saves,” then yes. If you think one cost should get you all versions of a game, you haven’t been a consumer or a gamer very long.

          As for backwards compatibility, that ship sailed a long time ago. It sucks, but it’s done — wishing for it now will only waste your time. Here we have a game which will let you move your saves forward. I consider this a good thing, and I don’t even play Minecraft. How many other games let you do this?

  • Digiadam

    Wow…..since a pisspoor move.

    I guess you couldn’t think of any GOOD games to port over eh? Too bad……

    • Nick Peck

      Yah, it’s so horrible because YOU don’t like it. Around 60+ million (all platforms) others will disagree with you.

      • Digiadam

        And they would be stupid. Come on its a block building sim….how stupid is that? Just awful.

        • GamerResentment

          Well then sir, you must be proud to be the only person in the world who “isn’t” stupid.

          Seriously though, what’s so hard about respecting someone else’s likes and dislikes? It’s fine that you don’t like this game but don’t assume that what you feel is fact just because you say it is. Just as much as I don’t really like COD because I feel it’s shallow “more of the same”, I don’t go around calling COD players stupid. In fact, I’ll play with my friends if that’s what they choose to do ( I have MW2, BO1 & 2 so I can play with them.

          Your either a troll, or a really narrow minded individual and I mean no disrespect by calling you either. Sorry (seriously) though if you do take offense.

    • roozbeh, again

      Guessing you haven’t heard about the Master Chief collection.

  • Paper Jesus

    My question is… can I let my friends access the world we share when I’m offline in the XB1 version since the save is in the Almighty Cloud?

  • ZappyKins

    Nice that they can upgrade! Now I’m bummed I didn’t buy it when it was on sale, cause I knew I was going to wait for next gen on it.

    But seriously, awesome for letting people upgrade!

  • Beano

    Nah…360 version is good enough for me

  • http://photovoltaik.bandcamp.com/ Ujn Hunter

    How can I upgrade from my Xbox 360 to my PS4?

    • evilfangs .

      You can’t, you have to pay the full $19.99 price on your PS4.

    • Death Dealer

      Pay another 20 bucks. LOL.

  • pulseimpact

    How about a Halo 3 PC edition?

    • Professor Oak

      hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaaahhhhhahaaaahaahaahaahaahahahahaha. Too great, you think it is gunna happen. It will be ported to xbox one first, then they will say, nope, you wanna play halo 3, buy a One or a 360

    • Jan Václavík

      … because Halo is relevant on PC?

  • Phil Mann

    an update/add on with more animals types and blocks would be freakin great, playing a clone on my mobile device that I wish I could have on the console versions. at 99 cents I was blown away by SURVIVALCRAFT a clone of one my favorite time killers

  • Mike tiger

    this is awesome cant wait
