Several fans of "Minecraft PS4 Edition" and "Minecraft Xbox One Edition" are upset over recent developments for both games. According to a report from Gameranx on July 26, some members of the community are growing impatient over the lack of updates regarding the exact release dates of the two next-generation ports. Mojang previously announced that the new versions should be coming out sometime next month.

"Minecraft PS4 Edition" and "Minecraft Xbox One Edition" come with some features that can't be found in the PS3, Vita and Xbox 360 versions. The bigger worlds, for example, should give players more room to build and explore. The native resolution and draw distance of the graphics engine got enhanced as well on the two next-generation consoles. Finally, the PS4 and Xbox One games include a feature that will let fans import their saves from the PS3, Vita and Xbox 360 iterations.

However, a few enthusiasts are still not happy with some of the elements that have not yet been improved. "Minecraft" will feature the same amount of multiplayer characters on the next-generation systems as the current-generation consoles. Fortunately, the producer from Xbox One version recently stated that more players could be added via a future title update patch.

The last compliant revolves around the aforesaid world sizes. Although the two upcoming titles feature much bigger worlds than the other console iterations, the areas are not infinite when compared to the PC game as well as "Minecraft Pocket Edition." The development team previously explained the restriction by putting blame on the save file limitations being imposed by Microsoft Studios and Sony Computer Entertainment.

"Minecraft Vita Edition" is also expected to come out on the same month as the aforesaid "Minecraft PS4 Edition" and "Minecraft Xbox One Edition." The handheld game should have the same gameplay features as the PS3 and Xbox 360 games with the exception of split-screen multiplayer.
