Minecraft for Xbox One might not let you transfer saved data

Posted on June 17, 2013 - 7:50am by ThatPunkAdam

[Update] Earlier this morning, Phil Spencer responded to his previous comments via Twitter stating that the teams at Microsoft Studios and 4J Studios are still discussing the possibility of transferring Minecraft saves from the Xbox 360 to the Xbox One version.
While this doesn’t set anything in stone, there seems to be more of a chance those who want to update to the upcoming next-gen version but want to keep their many hours of progress made in the current-gen version, will be able to do so. 
We’ll be sure to report back to you g1s when the publishing and development teams reach their final decision on the matter.  

Microsoft’s E3 presser this past week revealed to us that the blocky phenomenon, Minecraft, will have a new version available at the Xbox One’s launch. However, one question on many gamers’ minds is: can saved data from the current Xbox 360 version carry over to this new version?

Well, something you may have missed in the craziness of this past E3 was that the developer behind the Xbox 360 version of Minecraft, 4J Studios, tweeted in response to the aforementioned question, "It would be great to do this, and we are discussing it with Microsoft."

However, according to Microsoft’s Phil Spencer, who recently spoke to OXM,  the Xbox One version of Minecraft may not let gamers carry over save files, if the end of this quote is any indication

“It’s a new product on Xbox One. We’re actually updating it in pretty significant ways for the new platform. Bigger worlds, which don’t translate between the Xbox 360 and the Xbox One.”

But what do you think g1s? Is being able to transfer saves a necessity? Or would you be OK with starting over? Let me know in those comments down below!
