A post on the official Mojang website confirms that the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita Editions of Minecraft will also be available in August.
Players who own the PlayStation 3 version of Minecraft will get the Vita version for free as part of Sony’s Cross-Buy initiative. The PlayStation 4 version of Minecraft will be available for a similar price as the Xbox One edition, coming in at $19.99 and $4.99 for PS3 and Vita players.
Players will be able to transfer saves from PlayStation 3 and Vita to PlayStation 4 but not the other way around.
