Transfer old Minecraft data to your PS4 or Xbox One

The popular sandbox game allows you to transfer worlds you created on the PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360 to the PlayStation and Xbox One. Here's what you need to know.


The popular game Minecraft is now available on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. While the graphics haven't changed, the updated game features worlds that are 36 times larger than those on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 . Minecraft is available for $19.99 for new customers. Those users who previously purchased the game on the PS3 or Xbox 360 can upgrade to the new version for $4.99.

Existing players also have the ability to import their PS3 and Xbox 360 saved worlds to the PS4 and Xbox One editions, which means all that time you spent recreating King's Landing won't go to waste.

Transfer data from the Xbox 360 to Xbox One

It's relatively simple to transfer the worlds you have created on the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One. To start, launch Minecraft on your Xbox 360 and click on "Play Game" from the list of options. Select the saved game you would like to transfer and press the Y button on the controller.

Now launch Minecraft on your Xbox One and select "Play Game" from the list of options. Click the X button on the controller and the game will begin downloading your old map automatically. Then just select the world you would like to enter by pressing the A button and start playing right where you left off.

Transfer data from the PS3 to PS4 or PS Vita

To transfer worlds created on the PS3 to the PS4 or PS Vita, launch Minecraft on the PS3 and click on "Play Game" from the list of options. Select the saved world you would like to transfer, press the R1 button on the controller, select Upload Save for PS Vita/PS4 and press the X button.

Wait for the game to fully upload and then launch Minecraft on your PS4 or PS Vita. Select "Play Game" from the list of options and press the the square button on the controller. Once the game has finished downloading, simply select it from the list of worlds and begin playing.

Unfortunately, data cannot be transferred from an Xbox 360 to a PS4 or from a PS3 to an Xbox One.
