In before QN....

Minecraft enters the next generation with the release of Minecraft: Xbox One Edition, which will become available Friday, September 5th for download in the Xbox Store. Owners of Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition can upgrade for just $4.99 USD, while new players can download the full game for $19.99 USD.

More great news for existing Xbox 360 Minecraft players: All downloadable content players have purchased for the Xbox 360 Edition is available free for re-download on Xbox One. Additionally, you can transfer your favorite Xbox 360 worlds and content to the Xbox One Edition so you won’t lose your creations.

With worlds up to 36 times larger than on Xbox 360, now there’s an even bigger canvas to create, with four player split-screen on one console or up to eight players over Xbox Live.

Later this month, select retailers will sell the full game Digital Download Code and the full game packaged disc will be on retail store shelves globally this holiday.

- 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.
- You will be able to upgrade for a minimum of a year after the release date.
- Players with Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition saves will be able to import their worlds to Xbox One. Unfortunately, you won’t be able to transfer saves from Xbox One to Xbox 360. We can make worlds bigger without too much stress, but shrinking them causes all kinds of problems.
- Cross platform play will not be possible between Xbox 360 and Xbox One.
- Many, but not all, of the DLC skins and texture packs you’ve purchased for Xbox 360 Edition will be available for use in Xbox One Edition. We’d like to say all your DLC would transfer, but some of the items are trapped in licensing deals that are too boring to get into here. We’ll have more on this soon.

The achievement list is out and looks to be a lot harder than the 360 version.

Looking forward to actually learning and playing the game this time, instead of just joining worlds set up for the 360 achievements.

I have zero interest in it either, but my kid likes it and for $5, why not?

Oh, and steal one news posting from QN, and get the forum flooded with every tiniest bit of potential but not really news available....

I have yet to play this. What are the chances it becomes free to gold members?
Video games are like life, difficult, frustrating, but most of all, they're fun and rewarding when you slow down and enjoy them.

I say it'll probably go Game with Gold in six months; once everybody that is going to purchase it quickly has paid for the game and all the initial DLC that they want. But I'm a bit of a cynic.
