4J Updates Us on Minecraft PS4 and Xbox One Release

By   /   Jul 21, 2014

With just a month remaining for the scheduled release of Minecraft for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles, developer 4J Studios is still hard at work sorting out the many bugs that are plaguing the game.

Replying to a fan on Twitter last week, the developer provided a progressive update on the next-gen version of Minecraft: “Fixing bugs mainly. Also working on save file transfer from PS3 to PSVita/PS4 and Xbox 360 to Xbox One.”

Earlier this month, the developer stated similarly that they are just left with two aspects – one is fixing a tremendous amount of bugs, and the second is a save file transfer feature to allow players to jump console generations.

Players who have spent countless hours in Minecraft on their previous-generation consoles, would love nothing better than to transfer their progression from their old to new console purchase. This will allow them to continue playing in the same world that they have already created previously.

In addition to that, 4J Studios is also working on a similar feature that will let players import their PS3 saves to the upcoming PS Vita edition of the game that will launch alongside the new-gen ports. Furthermore, the Sony handheld version of Minecraft will be equipped with full cross-save support so fans will be able to take their save files batch and forth between the PlayStation 3 and the PS Vita.

Since the actual development of the game is done, fans would be happy to know that Minecraft for the PS4 and Xbox One is looking to be right on schedule and will unlikely be delayed past its August release date.
