Recently we learned that Minecraft content created on the PlayStation 3 will be able to transfer to the PS4 version. Not to be outdone, Microsoft's Phil Spencer quickly chimed in with a hearty: us too! Xbox 360 content will apparently transfer to Xbox One as well.
"After months of teaming up with Mojang, we can confirm that Minecraft X360 Edition will save transfer to Xbox One Edition," Spencer tweeted. He also promised "more news soon."
The PS3-to-PS4 news was accompanied by hints that some kind of cross-buy or discount may be coming for those who own the PS3 version. Microsoft has dipped a toe into a system similar to cross-buy, offering a discount for those who already owned Halo: Spartan Assault. If it's attempting parity with the PlayStation versions we may see that again, especially given that Minecraft has been such a massive hit on Xbox 360.
