    posted a message on Better Together update and simplified crafting.

    I've tried to Windows 10 edition in the past and don't like it for the simple reason that I like to play on control pads and the PC crafting system is too clunky.

    There is also the fact that it is hard to remember all the crafting combinations.


    Does anyone know if the simplified crafting system that the console editions currently have will be added to the new unified version?


    I will be really annoyed if it isn't as the new version will be unplayable.

    cross play between ps3 and ps4 is not possible at all. The two versions are not compatible. World sizes are different for a start.

    So do we think that along with infinite worlds we will also lose the villager caps and lower mob caps?


    Also I wonder if we will be getting Sweeping Edge in the update?!


    PS4 player here and i'm genuinely considering getting a second hand XB1 just so I can play with more people on larger servers...damnit Sony!!



    As there will be a unified version and cross platform play it's safe to say that the game will be identical on all the included platforms except for things like resolution, draw distance and the interface. Meaning if there are no caps on windows 10 then there will be no caps on xbox or nintendo either.

    I basically upgraded to this generation largely to get a slightly better minecraft experience. I now feel like I've played the Sony exclusives of note - lasyt of Us Remastered, Horizon etc, so I literally could easily move over to Xbox because of this. But I think I'd be waiting until the 1X comes out, or certainly until the actual Better Together update comes out, and then again, I've also got an interest in Switch now that Metroid is eventually coming to it.


    So on the one hand, this could lose Sony a few customers - I don't, traditionally, keep more than one console at a time - but on the other hand I can also see parts of what they are afraid of, which I think I wrote about in the other thread. On the face of it, cross play is more a benefit to the trailing consoles than the leading one. The situation with Minecraft being bought by their biggest competitor is wholly unprecedented and has surely always been an awkward thing for Sony, but the relationship was set up before that purchase happened. Changing the relationship, at this point, sounds like it's a big pill for them to accept.


    Nintendo only would have done it because they are doing what they can to recover from a thorough beating. Getting Minecraft on Wii U in the first place was a thorough turn around, if you remember. Notch didn't think it would ever happen.


    Going multi-platform is the way to go. Can never understand why some people have total blind loyalty to a single console brand. To me hating one console because you own the other is just sad.

    Even thought my Xbox is my preferred console I still own and play regularly on a ps4 and am seriously considering getting a Switch now. I personally believe you miss out on great exclusives by staying totally loyal to one brand.

    Actually they can. Psyonix, the makers of Rocket League, built their cross play expecting Sony would agree, was surprised that they didn't and has repeatedly said that they literally can tick one box on their server settings and PS would play with Xbox immediately.


    Yeah heard that too since my last post.

    Looks like it's nothing to do with the fact that the game uses a microsoft account. Sony are just being dicks

    All the confirmed information here: https://minecraft.net/en-us/article/all-news-e3

    An here: http://time.com/4810005/minecraft-pc-smartphone-switch-xbox/



    Another literally earth-shattering change: the console editions will now have unlimited worlds. "Really what we're talking about today is Minecraft becoming endless," says the game's executive producer, Jesse Merriam. "As the console editions join bedrock, there are just a number of things they naturally inherit." Console worlds today have a maximum size of 5,120 by 5,120 blocks, or about 3 miles by 3 miles. After the bedrock edition upgrade, players will be able to walk right off the end of an existing world, then keep going.


    And Realms, the game's subscription-based hangout for worlds players want to share with others (even when they're not around) folds in organically with the bedrock edition. "All the worlds you've created, all the DLC you've bought come to the new version," says Merriam.


    Hope this clears things up :)


    Really great news for xbox and nintendo anyway. One thing I hate about minecraft is having to start new worlds when game has been updated. Now I can keep the same world and just move on a new area when playing on xbox. I hope ps4 eventually gets this update too

    Who said Switch, Xbox etc are getting infinite worlds.



    They're basically getting a unified version with the Windows 10 and pocket edition.

    There is no way they would remove infinite worlds from the pocket edition or Windows 10 just so the consoles can have the same version.

    Besides if a mobile phone with it's limited RAM can have infinite worlds then there is no technical reason why the ps4 and xbox one versions couldn't have had infinite worlds from the beginning.


    If there are technical limitations then it's probably related to the current engine or maybe Sony's save limits. Oddly even the smallest saves are over 10MB on ps4. When the same game on xbox one may have a save size a fraction of the size.


    You only have to compare the save space on the xbox one version of Minecraft to the ps4 version. The xbox one version has enough save space to store far more worlds than the ps4. I have both versions of Minecraft and i'm nearly out of space on the ps4 version because the save files are enormous that's even though I have far more worlds saved on the xbox one version

    Pretty much news now that Sony isn't on board with the whole Cross-play with Nintendo and Xbox platforms

    http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2017-06-13-sony-defends-decision-to-block-cross-play-with-xbox-one-and-nintendo-switch

    Jim Ryan Playstations PR Employee said "No it's not happening"


    Quite disappointing if you ask me. Espically when the CG (Current Gen) PS4 playerbase is about to be left behind in the dust with an inferior version / Game of Minecraft.


    Has it been confirmed they wont get any of the bedrock features through?

    Could ps4 still get some of the new features like the new engine and infinite worlds?

    If xbox one and Nintendo switch are going to get infinite worlds then I see no reason why the ps4 version can't get infinite worlds either. Seems that all the excuses of the past about consoles not being capable of infinite worlds must be be a lie

    I have a different proposal, instead of having to sign into Xbox live accounts, why not allow ps4 accounts for the new Minecraft? We don't really need to have one right?


    This would still probably require the PSN network to connect directly with the xbox Live network. The two networks probably can't connect to each other for technical reasons which is why an xbox live account would be needed. Even the android and iOS versions need to connect to xbox live to play online

    Sony are arrogant and do not have a good track record of listening to their customers.


    I can't see them ever allowing ps4 owners to sign into xbox live accounts on the ps4.


    I'm actually surprised Nintendo are allowing it. Just goes to show how much better Nintendo is than Sony when it comes to keeping their customers happy.

    No. The ps4 version will not be discontinued and you should still be able to buy it after the xbox one and Switch get the new version.


    I'm not sure about the ps3, Xbox 360, Vita and WiiU versions though. Although I would assume they will get discontinued before long especially the Vita version.

    I'm not saying that article isn't true but that screen looks photo shopped to me.It makes no sense why the sign into xbox live box you get on other platforms would appear on xbox one as you likely would already be signed into xbox live automatically.


    Also playing multiplayer is not free on xbox as that pop up box claims

    Both versions are identical once fully updated and both versions allow local split screen and offline play so not sure what the problem is.
