Minecraft fans! We’re excited to finally tell you that the Minecraft PS4 Edition will be available on PlayStation Store this Thursday before 12pm Pacific for only $19.99!

For those looking for the ultimate Minecraft experience, the PS4 Edition will feature worlds 36 times bigger than the ones you might be used to on the PS3 system. Existing players will be able to import PS3 saves to the PS4 Edition, allowing them to continue work on their immense structure or delve even deeper towards the Nether.

Staying true to our promise, we wanted to make sure that anyone who previously bought the PS3 Edition (Disc or Digital) would be able to upgrade to PS4 Edition for a small fee.

Well, we’re happy to officially announce the upgrade option is available to any existing PS3 Edition owners for just $4.99!

To the people asking, if u don’t have a ps3 but have a vita or plan on getting one, and also have a ps4. BUY THE PS3 VERSION FIRST. If you own the ps3 version you get the vita version for free, and can upgrade to the ps4 version for $5.

You can’t go backwards and buy the ps4 version, then get a discount on the ps3/vita version so if u are wanting it for both ps4 and vita, buy ps3, upgrade to ps4 for $5 and ull get to download the vita version for free when it releases.

Also, I heard retail version is coming out this holiday season.

If I upgrade to PS4, do I lose access to my Vita and PS3 copies, or is the upgrade really just a discount?

@Paralyzer

It won’t. Adobe flash is a dated and resrouce hungry technology. It’s all about HTML5 now, how about telling ppl to upgrade from old tech?

Anyways, I’m assuming PS Vita Minecraft isn’t crossbuy with ps4?

Hello. I am a long time PS3 user. However, I bought Minecraft for the Xbox 360. My friends and I have all made the switch to PS4 for next gen gaming and cancelled our Xbox subscriptions. I have a Disc copy of Minecraft for Xbox. PLEASE tell me the promotion will work in the same way.

MORE IMPORTANTLY, please tell me there is a way my friends and I can still have our worlds onto Minecraft PS4 version!

+ bigboi_21 on September 3rd, 2014 at 7:55 pm said:

So its best to buy the PS3 version for $19.99, upgrade to PS4 for $4.99, and download the Vita version free, since its only cross-buy with PS3 version.

Haha, thanks for the reply. I make a ton of serious question posts here in the past that go unanswered then I make a tongue in cheek post about going to sleep and that’s the first reply I get. I understand the team is working hard through the night, I work software too and we have those long, sleepless nights before a release.

I appreciate the team doing all that work. I’ll be happy to play it with my friends when I get off work tomorrow (if I don’t have to work late too). Thanks to you too for working so hard to answer everyone’s questions.

You guys market the vita as the “perfect companion” to the playstation 4, and then pull stuff like this. How does it make any sense to allow cross buy with the ps3 version to vita and not ps4 to vita. Don’t you want to more people to upgrade from the ps3 to 4? How is this helping?

For someone like me, who gave away their ps3 when upgraded to a ps4, I feel really boned on this. I would love to play on my vita as well as my ps4. But there’s no way I’m paying the full price twice.

Is there no way around this??

@twelveoglock post #73

See my post #50

Just buy the ps3 version first. This will give u the vita version for free when it releases and give u the $5 upgrade to the ps4 version. So you’ll be paying $25 for both the vita and ps4 version.

Also, I really like the PSN ID.

GLOCKguy1926 If I get the PS3 Retail version and it comes with the code for Vita and PS4 do I have to play the PS3 version first for the code to work? I don’t have a PS3 so I don’t want to buy it without knowing


82

+ Mikaelkid17 on September 3rd, 2014 at 8:20 pm said:

So I’m guessing the hope I have is hopeless because I played Minecraft on Xbox.

Is there really no way to get our worlds onto Ps4? We made the switch because PS is the better choice obviously, but we really played Minecraft most of the time. Losing our worlds would be devestation

I do not own a PS3 with Minecraft, but my friend does. Can I just go over to his house create a world/save on the game then come back home hop on PS4 & only pay $5? Or do I physically need to buy the PS3 edition of the game on my account for it to work?
