Mojang has confirmed that the PS4, Xbox One and Vita versions of Minecraft will launch in August
Xbox 360 and PS3 owners will be able to upgrade to the new versions for a "small fee".
Saves will be transferable between the PS3 and Vita versions of Minecraft, meaning players can craft at home then continue on the go and vice versa.
Minecraft PS3 and Vita players will be able to import their worlds to PS4, but they won't be able to transfer saves from the new console to the other platforms.
Minecraft Xbox 360 players will also be able to transfer saves to Xbox One, but not vice versa.
