Second Game Ever To Do This: Minecraft Will Support Cross-Console Play

Xbox vs Playstation

The new texture pack will also come alongside a "Better Together" update which will introduce cross-play among the many different platforms Minecraft is on. That's pretty big news.

Amid Microsoft finally unveiling the Xbox One X, more commonly tagged pre-E3 as Project Scorpio, Minecraft fans also got their share of news, with the game now available for cross-play across any device.

Sony's response, issued one day later to GameSpot, suggests the market-leading platform holder remains open-minded about the cross-console play but stopped short of discussing a deal with Xbox Live. It's unusual to think of Minecraft's crude, blocky figures as something in need of high-end graphics, but the fall change will endow the game with high-resolution 4K graphics support so it'll look better playing on big-screen TVs, Microsoft said.

But what does a unified version of Minecraft mean?

Update, June 12 at 11:45 a.m.: Adds details about graphics changes coming to Minecraft in the fall. The company also confirmed that those who own the VR or mobile version will receive the Better Together update this summer.

The "Better Together" update indeed comes with numerous advantages.

Microsoft announced on Sunday that it's unifying all versions of "Minecraft".
