This is not new news… I didn’t know, so it’s news to me. But just in case others did not know or forgot, let’s be clear on this.
You can upgrade to next-gen Mincraft for $5. You can check out the specifics here or read below to read the only blurbs I care about from that link.
If you’ve bought Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition from Xbox Live Marketplace, or played online with the disc version, you will be able to upgrade to Xbox One Edition for $4.99.
If you’ve bought Playstation 3 Edition from the Playstation Network you will be able to upgrade for $4.99.
You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.
This is great thinking and great partnering up by developer and companies involved. I will definitely be picking up my next-gen copy.
