Minecraft coming to Vita next week
Minecraft is finally coming to the PlayStation Vita, and Sony has detailed the somewhat convoluted upgrade and cross-buy schemes between it and its console counterparts.
Minecraft is finally coming to Vita next week.
Sony gave word on the PlayStation Blog that Minecraft PS Vita Edition will be available on the PlayStation Store next Tuesday for $19.99. A retail version will follow on November 11, also at $19.99.
The Vita version is cross-buy with the PlayStation 3 version, so if you already own it, you can simply download the Vita version for free. Or, if you buy the Vita version, you can download the PS3 version too. Owners of either can upgrade to the PlayStation 4 version for $4.99, but that's a one-way street. If you already own the PS4 version, you don't get either of the others as a freebie. You can transfer your save to and from the PS3 and Vita versions as well.
