Minecraft Bug Fixes Go Live For PS4, Vita And Xbox 360 Editions, Brings 360 Version Up To Speed With Next-Gen
Three bug fixing patches have come through for Minecraft PlayStation 4 Edition, PS Vita Edition and Xbox 360 Edition, adding a "Copy Save" function to the console versions.
A couple of days ago, Roger Carpenter, a producer at Microsoft who works with both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One versions of Minecraft, tweeted that a new bug fix was live for the game's Xbox 360 version that puts it on the same page as the Xbox One version. This should mean that Xbox 360 owners can now make copies of their world saves. Copying world saves lets players make back ups of and experiment with their favorite saves without worrying about ruining their previous progress.
The Xbox One version got the "Copy Save" patch about a week ago. There doesn't seem to be any word on when this will come to the PlayStation 3.
A new bug-fix-only Title Update is out today for the Xbox360 version #minecraftXBLA. Now matches the Xbox One Edition.

Over on the Twitter page of Minecraft console developer 4J Studios, fans will find that the PS4 version of the game is receiving the same "Copy Save" update and bug fix today. A full list of the bugs fixed in the PS4 version can be found over on the Minecraft Forum. They also announced that the PS Vita version of the game – less than a week old – is now getting its first update with the 1.01 patch. The smaller patch fixes a couple of game-crash and hang issues while adding Turkish language support (full patch notes here). As of now, the patch is only rolling out in Europe, but it should be coming to American players soon enough.
Minecraft released for the PS Vita this week and came to next-gen consoles back in September. The game was recently confirmed for a Windows Phone port, however, which means the game's slow but steady expansion onto various consoles and handhelds is not over just yet.
