Mojang has announced that Minecraft will launch on PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita this August.
The PS4 and Xbox One versions will feature "significantly bigger worlds and a greater draw distance" compared to the PS3 and Xbox 360 versions, while the PS Vita version will be exactly like the PS3 version. Players that own either the PS3 or Xbox 360 versions will be able to import their saves the their next-gen counterparts.
For those interested in upgrading their PS3 or Xbox 360 versions to the PS4 or Xbox One, respectively, the upgrade will be available for $4.99.

In addition, the PS Vita version will be available for free for those that own the PS3 version.
For those interested in doing the upgrade, Mojang has confirmed that this option will only be available for a year after these versions' release. If bought as a standlone title, the PS4, Xbox One and PS Vita versions of Minecraft will be available for $19.99.
