Get off you PC, Minecraft is heading to the Xbox One

Minecraft has become a major gaming phenomena, generating publicity through online videos and even podcasts that are dedicated to the game. Now the title is on its way to Microsoft's latest console, the Xbox One, which launched back in November. 

You will have a bit of a wait -- the game is still a couple of months away. However, Xbox Live chief Larry Hryb, better known as Major Nelson, has offered up a few details to get the gamers excited. 

"First, and most importantly, they’ve revealed that Minecraft makes the jump to next gen this August for $19.99. There’s also great news for the 12+ million of you that already own Minecraft: Xbox 360 edition – you’ll be able to upgrade for just $4.99", says Hryb. 

Are any of you excited about this? The price is certainly right, and the game is tremendously popular. We'll see what happens in a couple of months.
