Minecraft for Xbox 360 became very popular, very quickly and now the game is making its first jump to next-gen. The Xbox One version will be released this Friday, September 5th.

There are no UK prices announced yet, but from the US prices we can gather that the game will cost £19.99 (£12) to buy outright or if you’ve already purchased and played the Xbox 360 version you can upgrade for $4.99 (£3) – provided you still use the same Xbox Live account.

Update: Microsoft has just confirmed that the UK prices will be £15.99, or £3.99 for the upgrade.

When the game is released you’ll be able to transfer your maps and saves, as well as DLC, from the 360 version. The Xbox One version allows for maps that are up to 36 times larger than the Xbox 360 though, and with a longer draw distance.
