4J Studios released Title Update 14 for Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition on Wednesday with plans to update Minecraft: Playstation 3 Edition on Thursday. Teleportation is one of the new features that was added to the console version of the game with this update but it is buried in the menus a little. So, this guide was put together to help Xbox and PS3 players zip around the world.
Note that this was tested using Minecraft: Xbox 360 Edition but the PS3 Edition is expected to behave the same. Unlike the PC version, the console version of Minecraft allows players to teleport to another player or teleport another player to their location. Here's how to do it.
- When you create a new world or open an existing world, make sure the ‘Host Privileges’ option is checked under the‘More Options' menu.
- Once in the game world, press the ‘Back’ button ('Select' on PS3) on the controller then select ‘Host Options’.
- You’ll see the options to ‘Teleport to Player’ and ‘Teleport to Me.'
- Select either of those options and then select the player that you either want to teleport to or have teleport to you.
- Voila, you’ll view the inside of your friend’s head until one of you moves.
If you want another player in your world to teleport when they want, you’ll need to do the following.
- Press the ‘Back’ button ('Select' on PS3) on the controller.
- Select the player you want to give teleport privileges to.
- Check the box 'moderator' box which enables the 'Can Teleport' box.
- Check the 'Can Teleport' box and then back out by pressing the 'B' button ('Circle' on PS3).
Now the other player will be able to teleport following the same steps above and you can do that with all of the players in the world whether they are local players or online players.
