Minecraft on Xbox One and PS4 Can be 36 Times Bigger Than 360/PS3

4J Studios, creators of the console version of Minecraft, have released screenshots of Minecraft for the Xbox One and Playstation 4, whilst the game doesn’t look all that different from other iterations of the game, it will have an upgraded view distance compared to previous versions.

4J said they’re currently testing a world size increase which is 36 times bigger than the Xbox 360/Playstation 3 edition of the game.

Earlier, they had stated that the new-gen version of the game won’t have an infinite world due to save limits. Another feature the studio pointed out was the ability to use the Dualshock 4’s touchpad for navigation in the game.

A fan asked Mojang’s Owen Hill about a possible Playstation Vita or Playstation 4 release date to which Hill responded by saying that the team is looking to release Xbox One, Playstation 4 and Playstation Vita versions sometime in Q2 or Q3 this year.

A few weeks ago, Microsoft Executive Phil Spencer talked to IGN about the Xbox One edition of Minecraft, saying the development is going smoothly adding that the game will be releasing soon.

There is no stopping Minecraft, even after selling millions of copies across the popular platforms, its demand is just as strong as it was back when the game was first released. Currently, Minecraft is available on PC, Linux, Mac, Xbox 360, Playstation 3, iOS and Android devices.
