Minecraft for Xbox One might not let you transfer saved data
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
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!
Me especially, since I tend to play Survival mode often (more often than recently, at least). With each major update I have to start a new world anyway, so it doesn't really bother me.
Are you kidding me? I ain't spending 12 hours a day with my back in an awkward position and developing arthritis. LOL XD. I don't know about you, but, on console, it feels more like a true game, in my opinion.
Seriously, play the PC version!
Yeah. How can you make Infinite bigger lol
Or build a better world :o?
Okay, starting a new save on Minecraft isn't a bad thing. I do it a lot. Not a big deal.
But you can't seriously tell me that "bigger worlds" is an excuse for being unable to transfer saves. "Bigger" worlds. In Minecraft. Right. Sure.
Oh noes! I don't play Minecraft at all, but from what I've seen and heard, people spend unbelievable amounts of time on their worlds. If for some reason they want to jump from the 360 to the One (geometry mind screw), I'd imagine they'd want to take those hundreds of hours with them.
I hate the xbox one and I agree with you, out of all the negative thing going on, this doesn't sound that bad
I can see many people being upset with having to start over. Myself, I don't mind it. It is similar to spring cleaning your computer. Sure, you put much work into all of those programs you installed and files for Rainmeter to customize your desktop, but why not start it over with a clean slate and screw it all up again, eh?
Need still reasons not to support the Xbox? Check out "xboxshun.com" <--- let Microsoft know that you will not buy their garbage.
True it does. But using creation mode I'm sure Geoff and Gavin could rebuild the base Achievement City (logo and houses) within a day. Maybe even less time if they bring Ryan in as well.
Well..that sucks for Achievement Hunter.
